    A dedicated visual pathway for prey detection in larval zebrafish

    Julia L Semmelhack et al.
    A subset of retinal ganglion cells respond specifically to small moving objects and project to a visual area that plays a key role in prey capture behavior.

    Synergistic assembly of human pre-spliceosomes across introns and exons

    Joerg E Braun et al.
    Viewing the dynamic interactions of individual spliceosomal subcomplexes with single pre-messenger RNA molecules reveals how nearby flanking splice sites accelerate pre-spliceosome assembly and the splicing of multi-intron pre-mRNAs.

    Exon junction complex proteins bind nascent transcripts independently of pre-mRNA splicing in Drosophila melanogaster

    Subhendu Roy Choudhury et al.
    Deposition of the exon junction complex is thought to be the missing link between pre-mRNA splicing and translation in multicellular organisms, but no evidence of such deposition has been found in Drosophila.

    Requirement for highly efficient pre-mRNA splicing during Drosophila early embryonic development

    Leonardo Gastón Guilgur et al.
    The need for efficient pre-RNA splicing during early embryonic development of Drosophila indicates that the constraints imposed by the cell cycle are a force capable of driving changes in Eukaryotic gene architecture.

    Tooth fracture frequency in gray wolves reflects prey availability

    Blaire Van Valkenburgh et al.
    Despite risks of infection and reduced fitness, tooth fracture frequency in gray wolves increases rapidly when prey are scarce because they must consume carcasses more completely.

    Bicoid gradient formation and function in the Drosophila pre-syncytial blastoderm

    Zehra Ali-Murthy, Thomas B Kornberg
    The concentration gradient of Bicoid protein positions gene expression domains along the anterior/posterior axis of the Drosophila embryo during the cleavage, pre-syncytial blastoderm stages.

    Pre-post synaptic alignment through neuroligin-1 tunes synaptic transmission efficiency

    Kalina T Haas et al.
    Neuroligin 1 is a critical adhesion molecule which organizes AMPA receptor nanodomains in close vicinity to pre-synaptic release sites, and whose genetic or chemical disruption severely impairs synaptic transmission properties.
