    Whole-organism behavioral profiling reveals a role for dopamine in state-dependent motor program coupling in C. elegans

    Nathan Cermak et al.
    Simultaneous quantification of each of the main motor programs in the roundworm C. elegans yields new insights into the neural mechanisms that coordinate animal behavior.

    Sexual selection gradients change over time in a simultaneous hermaphrodite

    Jeroen NA Hoffer et al.
    The quantification of sexual selection reveals that it is important to consider the chosen time frame of measurement as well as the sexual system.

    Determining cellular CTCF and cohesin abundances to constrain 3D genome models

    Claudia Cattoglio et al.
    Absolute quantification of CTCF and cohesin reveals quantitative constraints on 3D genome organization and illuminates the molecular architecture of the cohesin complex.

    Activation of MAP3K DLK and LZK in Purkinje cells causes rapid and slow degeneration depending on signaling strength

    Yunbo Li et al.
    The activity levels of two closely related MAPKKK are differentially regulated in Purkinje neuron survival.

    Distinct roles of nonmuscle myosin II isoforms for establishing tension and elasticity during cell morphodynamics

    Kai Weißenbruch et al.
    The mechanical response of adherent cells in structured environments is shown to be shaped by the intricate interplay between the three different isoforms of an essential molecular motor.

    RAL GTPases mediate EGFR-driven intestinal stem cell proliferation and tumourigenesis

    Máté Nászai et al.
    Combined genetic experiments and cellular trafficking assays in Drosophila and mammalian models uncover a new role of RAS-like GTPases in EGFR signalling activation during tissue regeneration and tumourigenesis through regulation of EGFR internalisation.

    A lung-on-chip model of early Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection reveals an essential role for alveolar epithelial cells in controlling bacterial growth

    Vivek V Thacker et al.
    Time-lapse imaging and the modular recreation of host physiology reveal that alveolar epithelial cells, potential permissive infection sites for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, can restrict early bacterial growth via surfactant secretion.

    Pitx2c orchestrates embryonic axis extension via mesendodermal cell migration

    Michelle M Collins et al.
    Expression of Pitx2c at the onset of gastrulation drives convergence and extension movements in the zebrafish embryo by promoting downstream pathways affecting chemokine signaling, integrin-ECM interactions, and planar cell polarity components.

    Low wnt/β-catenin signaling determines leaky vessels in the subfornical organ and affects water homeostasis in mice

    Fabienne Benz et al.
    Endothelial tightening by augmenting low level Wnt/β-catenin activity in vessels of the mouse subfornical organ, influences neuronal activation in water-deprived mice, linking endothelial barrier properties to neuro-vascular coupling.

    A switch in transcription and cell fate governs the onset of an epigenetically-deregulated tumor in Drosophila

    Joana Torres et al.
    A previously unknown oncogenic feature of an embryonic transcription factor was uncovered from transcriptomic analysis of tumors that lack functional Polycomb silencing.
