    Phenotypic states become increasingly sensitive to perturbations near a bifurcation in a synthetic gene network

    Kevin Axelrod et al.
    Perturbations in the extracellular environment drive transitions from a highly stable memory state to an alternative phenotype in microorganisms.

    Dkk2 promotes neural crest specification by activating Wnt/β-catenin signaling in a GSK3β independent manner

    Arun Devotta et al.
    Dkk2, a member of the Dikkopf family of Wnt antagonists, acts as a positive regulator of Wnt signaling during neural crest formation.
