A key transcription-factor for osteogenic differentiation, PLZF, acts as a transcriptional activator by binding to active developmental enhancers and facilitates mediator recruitment, but is not involved in enhancer looping.
Sexual arousal, exposure to aphrodisiac pheromones, or mere activation of peripheral pheromone-sensing neurons can modulate sleep homeostasis and are able to counteract the effects of sleep deprivation in Drosophila.
Phosphorylation of Spc110 N-terminal domain encompassing conserved motifs and its interaction with conserved GCP3 N-terminal domain regulate the oligomerization of gamma-tubulin small complexes (γ-TuSCs).
Brain imaging and behavioral analysis reveal two opposing states of hunger, represented by anti-correlated lateral and caudal hypothalamic dynamics that are important for the homeostatic control of feeding in zebrafish.
Analysis of crawling Drosophila larva and agent based simulations suggest that an intrinsic rhythm rather than distinct actions underlie taxis behaviour, providing a core mechanism on which both sensory and memory pathways can converge.
