    Emergence of a smooth interface from growth of a dendritic network against a mechanosensitive contractile material

    Medha Sharma et al.
    A smooth and circular interface can form between domains of the cell cortex from local induction of a contractile actomyosin ring by centrifugal pushing forces of an expanding Arp2/3 actin network.

    Glypicans define unique roles for the Hedgehog co-receptors boi and ihog in cytoneme-mediated gradient formation

    Eléanor Simon et al.
    The glypicans Dally-like protein and Dally reveal functional non-redundancy of the Hedgehog co-receptors Boi and Ihog through independent interactions and specifically regulate cytoneme dynamics via the Ihog FNIII domain, thus setting long-range signaling.

    Studying evolution of the primary body axis in vivo and in vitro

    Kerim Anlas, Vikas Trivedi
    The shared capacity of stem cells to recapitulate initial body plan formation in vitro without species-specific cues, suggests the existence of alternative, evolutionarily conserved developmental trajectories.

    Identification of neural progenitor cells and their progeny reveals long distance migration in the developing octopus brain

    Astrid Deryckere et al.
    Neurogenic progenitor cells surrounding the eye placode generate neurons that migrate over long distances to the developing octopus brain.

    Hypoxia triggers collective aerotactic migration in Dictyostelium discoideum

    Olivier Cochet-Escartin et al.
    Cell assemblies can use environmental cues created by their own respiration, such as oxygen gradients, to collectively guide themselves to more favorable locations in a remarkably robust and long-lasting way.

    Twisting of the zebrafish heart tube during cardiac looping is a tbx5-dependent and tissue-intrinsic process

    Federico Tessadori et al.
    The three-dimensional and asymmetrical transformations undergone by the zebrafish linear heart tube during looping morphogenesis are under the control of cardiac-intrinsic cues.

    Nucleo-cytoplasmic shuttling of splicing factor SRSF1 is required for development and cilia function

    Fiona Haward et al.
    A mouse model where the splicing factor SRSF1 was prevented from accumulating in the cytoplasm revealed reduced translation of thousands of mRNAs and postnatal phenotypes particularly affecting multiciliated cells.

    The need for high-quality oocyte mitochondria at extreme ploidy dictates mammalian germline development

    Marco Colnaghi et al.
    Selective transfer of mitochondria in the Balbiani body ensures high-quality oocyte mitochondria at extreme ploidy, explaining many enigmatic features of female germline architecture including germ cell loss.

    Epi-mutations for spermatogenic defects by maternal exposure to di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate

    Yukiko Tando et al.
    Gene analyses reveal the abnormal DNA methylation and expression of the genes essential for spermatogenesis as a cause of spermatogenic defects in offspring induced by maternal exposure of a chemical.

    A Brownian ratchet model for DNA loop extrusion by the cohesin complex

    Torahiko L Higashi et al.
    A structure-based model of the chromosomal cohesin complex, accompanied by molecular-mechanistic simulations, explains cohesin's key role in topologically entrapping DNA, as well as its ability to alternatively extrude DNA loops.
