    A calcineurin-mediated scaling mechanism that controls a K+-leak channel to regulate morphogen and growth factor transcription

    Chao Yi et al.
    Calcineurin regulates an electrophysiological mechanism that activates the transcription of specific developmental genes in a heirarchical manner to scale fish appendages.

    Morphological and genomic shifts in mole-rat ‘queens’ increase fecundity but reduce skeletal integrity

    Rachel A Johnston et al.
    In cooperatively breeding Damaraland mole-rats, transitioning to 'queen' results in extensive gene regulatory and morphological remodeling, but also costs to skeletal integrity that scale with reproductive investment.

    Creating and controlling visual environments using BonVision

    Gonçalo Lopes et al.
    BonVision is an open-source software for real-time rendering and control of 2D and 3D visual environments that also enables easy replication of experiments.

    fMRI-based detection of alertness predicts behavioral response variability

    Sarah E Goodale et al.
    Time-varying states of alertness that shape behavioral responses may be detected from fMRI signal patterns.

    Differences in interactions between transmembrane domains tune the activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors

    Jordana K Thibado et al.
    Homo- and heterodimeric group II metabotropic glutamate receptors show diverse modes of interaction between transmembrane domains that control their distinct assembly and activation properties.

    DIAPH3 deficiency links microtubules to mitotic errors, defective neurogenesis, and brain dysfunction

    Eva On-Chai Lau et al.
    DIAPH3 safeguards integrity of microtubule cytoskeleton during division of neural progenitor cells.

    Competitive binding of STATs to receptor phospho-Tyr motifs accounts for altered cytokine responses

    Stephan Wilmes et al.
    IL-27 exerts differential activation of STAT1 and STAT3 via IL-27Ra and GP130, respectively, leading to a kinetic decoupling of its gene expression program, which contributes to tune its immuno-modulatory activities.

    Vascular-derived SPARC and SerpinE1 regulate interneuron tangential migration and accelerate functional maturation of human stem cell-derived interneurons

    Matthieu Genestine et al.
    Species-specific timing of interneuron migration across mice and humans is regulated by two vascular-derived factors, SPARC and SerpinE1.

    The LRR-TM protein PAN-1 interacts with MYRF to promote its nuclear translocation in synaptic remodeling

    Shi-Li Xia et al.
    Identified as a binding factor of transcription factor MYRF, the LRR-TM protein PAN-1 promotes the cell-membrane localization and nuclear translocation of MYRF, which drives synaptic rewiring in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Multiscale analysis of single and double maternal-zygotic Myh9 and Myh10 mutants during mouse preimplantation development

    Markus Frederik Schliffka et al.
    During mouse preimplantation development, the complete loss of actomyosin contractility abolishes cytokinesis but not apico-basal polarisation, lineage specification, or fluid accumulation, which are the critical steps to the formation of the blastocyst.
