    Genome-wide CRISPR screen identifies noncanonical NF-κB signaling as a regulator of density-dependent proliferation

    Maria Fomicheva, Ian G Macara
    TRAF3, a negative regulator of noncanonical NF-κB signaling, maintains epithelial cell quiescence at confluence, and its loss triggers upregulation of immunity genes and prevents entry into G0 at high cell density.

    A gradient of Wnt activity positions the neurosensory domains of the inner ear

    Magdalena Żak, Nicolas Daudet
    Manipulations of Wnt signalling in the chicken embryo reveal how it controls in a dose-dependent manner the formation of the neurosensory territories of the early developing inner ear.

    Comparison of induced neurons reveals slower structural and functional maturation in humans than in apes

    Maria Schörnig et al.
    Neurons mature slower in humans than in other non-human primates.

    Super-resolution microscopy reveals coupling between mammalian centriole subdistal appendages and distal appendages

    Weng Man Chong et al.
    Super-resolved architectural framework of subdistal appendages surprisingly reveals coupling between distal appendages and subdistal appendages.

    Zebrafish embryonic explants undergo genetically encoded self-assembly

    Alexandra Schauer et al.
    Blastoderm tissue organization and patterning in zebrafish explants is driven by a genetically encoded and controlled self-assembly mechanism, rather than a bonafide self-organization mechanism.

    Paracrine Met signaling triggers epithelial–mesenchymal transition in mammary luminal progenitors, affecting their fate

    Amandine Di-Cicco et al.
    Mammary progenitors identified by a new marker, ICAM-1, undergo epithelial-mesenchymal transition and luminal-to-basal switch in response to paracrine Met activation.

    Secretion of protein disulphide isomerase AGR2 confers tumorigenic properties

    Delphine Fessart et al.
    Epithelial tumors secrete the ER-resident AGR2 in the extracellular matrix to function as a novel essential microenvironmental regulator of epithelial tissue architecture, which leads to tumorigenicity.

    Genome-wide identification of neuronal activity-regulated genes in Drosophila

    Xiao Chen et al.
    Activity-regulated genes in Drosophila neurons differ from the well-characterized situation in mammals, and these genes provided a strategy to construct reporters for monitoring neuronal activity in fly brains.

    Transient external force induces phenotypic reversion of malignant epithelial structures via nitric oxide signaling

    Benjamin L Ricca et al.
    In a 3D culture model of breast epithelium, application of a short-timescale compression to single malignant cells promotes the long-timescale development of polarized, growth-arrested structures.
