    The manifold actions of signaling peptides on subcellular dynamics of a receptor specify stomatal cell fate

    Xingyun Qi et al.
    A binary cell fate decision to be or not to be stomata is regulated by multiple peptide ligands, each triggering a unique subcellular dynamics of their shared receptor.

    Par protein localization during the early development of Mnemiopsis leidyi suggests different modes of epithelial organization in the metazoa

    Miguel Salinas-Saavedra, Mark Q Martindale
    Even though the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi develops polarized epithelial tissues, polarization is not mediated by the conserved mechanisms polarizing bilaterian and cnidarian epithelial cells.

    Heterogeneous somatostatin-expressing neuron population in mouse ventral tegmental area

    Elina Nagaeva et al.
    The midbrain area for salience, reward and aversion in mouse brain harbours among the dopamine cells three subtypes somatostatin-expressing neurons that show combinatorial neurotransmitter phenotypes and interneuron properties.

    Differentiating Drosophila female germ cells initiate Polycomb silencing by regulating PRC2-interacting proteins

    Steven Z DeLuca et al.
    Characterization of Drosophila female germ cell differentiation shows that nurse cells initiate Polycomb silencing by regulating Pcl and Scm levels to alter the biochemical properties of the PRC2 H3K27 methylase.
  1. Research Culture: Changing how we evaluate research is difficult, but not impossible

    Anna Hatch, Stephen Curry
    The DORA initiative offers practical guidance on improving the assessment of research by universities, research institutions, and funders.

    Local frustration determines loop opening during the catalytic cycle of an oxidoreductase

    Lukas S Stelzl et al.
    The cysteine pair oxidation state in nDsbD acts as a ‘switch’ controlling the presence or absence of frustration in the active-site and determining the dynamic behavior of the cap loop.
