    A phase transition enhances the catalytic activity of SARM1, an NAD+ glycohydrolase involved in neurodegeneration

    Heather S Loring et al.
    The catalytic activity of SARM1, a key promoter of neuronal degeneration, is activated by >2000-fold by a phase transition.

    Phase transitioned nuclear Oskar promotes cell division of Drosophila primordial germ cells

    Kathryn E Kistler et al.
    The scaffolding protein Oskar organizes two types of germ granules by phase transition within the same cell but with distinct morphologies, composition and biological functions.

    Sugar is an endogenous cue for juvenile-to-adult phase transition in plants

    Sha Yu et al.
    Sugar levels in leaves act as a signal for plants to switch from their juvenile to their adult form by regulating the expression of two genes.

    Swarming bacteria undergo localized dynamic phase transition to form stress-induced biofilms

    Iago Grobas et al.
    Collective stress response via localized dynamic phase transition turns swarming Bacillus subtilis into biofilms.

    A first order phase transition mechanism underlies protein aggregation in mammalian cells

    Arjun Narayanan et al.
    Quantitative single molecule and super resolution imaging in mammalian cells reveal a population of precursor aggregates describable by first order phase transition theory.

    Pre-transition effects mediate forces of assembly between transmembrane proteins

    Shachi Katira et al.
    A general mechanism for how powerful forces of assembly and protein mobility can emerge from phase transitions is established.

    The neuropeptide F/nitric oxide pathway is essential for shaping locomotor plasticity underlying locust phase transition

    Li Hou et al.
    Two neuropeptides, NPF1a and NPF2, act via the nitric oxide signaling pathway in the locust brain to regulate the trait transition between solitary and swarming behavior.

    The evolution of distributed sensing and collective computation in animal populations

    Andrew M Hein et al.
    A computational model shows that natural selection can cause populations to evolve a distinctive population-level phenotype: the ability to transition between collective states in response to the environment.

    Intrinsically disordered linkers determine the interplay between phase separation and gelation in multivalent proteins

    Tyler S Harmon et al.
    Computational modeling and theoretical analysis reveal how disordered linkers determine whether linear multivalent proteins undergo gelation with or without phase separation.
