Elucidation of the molecular basis of early wound epidermis dependence during salamander limb regeneration reveals midkine as a key modulator of wound epidermis development and wound-healing resolution.
Machine learning and experimental tests of receiver bias identify signal components critical to correct species classification in guenons, linking face pattern diversity to selection for species discrimination.
A screen targeting RNA-associated proteins reveals that PSI regulates timeless alternative splicing and thus controls the period of Drosophila circadian behavior and its phase under temperature cycles.
The polarity protein crumbs controls apical secretion and the architecture of the apical domain by modulating PI(4,5)P2 levels and the organization of apical Rab6-, Rab11-, and Rab30-dependent trafficking.
The survival of Drosophila amacrine neurons is controlled by neurotrophic signaling mediated by interactions between the cell surface protein DIP-γ and its partner Dpr11, which is expressed on presynaptic photoreceptors.
