    Layered roles of fruitless isoforms in specification and function of male aggression-promoting neurons in Drosophila

    Margot Wohl et al.
    Male-type aggressive and courtship behaviors of the fruit flies are differentially specified by two sex-determining genes, providing a substrate for the evolution to sculpt these two behaviors independently.

    Asymmetrical diversification of the receptor-ligand interaction controlling self-incompatibility in Arabidopsis

    Maxime Chantreau et al.
    In-planta ancestral protein resurrection of the female determinant of self-incompatibility specificity in Arabidopsis halleri demonstrates that two allelic variants currently segregating as distinct receptor-ligand combinations diverged through an asymmetrical process.

    Coordinated control of terminal differentiation and restriction of cellular plasticity

    Tulsi Patel, Oliver Hobert
    Transcription factors that specify the identity of individual neuron types via activating terminal differentiation gene batteries also restrict cellular plasticity via altering the chromatin landscape.

    Inhibitory peptidergic modulation of C. elegans serotonin neurons is gated by T-type calcium channels

    Kara E Zang et al.
    Genetic analysis of how neuropeptides control C. elegans reproductive behavior shows how T-type calcium channels engage and disengage target neurons from these critical regulators of neural circuits and behavior.

    Dopamine drives Drosophila sechellia adaptation to its toxic host

    Sofía Lavista-Llanos et al.
    The insect dopaminergic system serves an important function in the regulation of ontogenesis and early development, contributing to the evolutionary processes that limit the ecological niche of Drosophila sechellia.

    Integrated action of pheromone signals in promoting courtship behavior in male mice

    Sachiko Haga-Yamanaka et al.
    Identification of two classes of mouse vomeronasal receptors for female pheromone cues suggests distinct gating mechanisms in pheromone-triggered reproductive behaviors.

    Ovulation in Drosophila is controlled by secretory cells of the female reproductive tract

    Jianjun Sun, Allan C Spradling
    Secretory cells in the fruit fly reproductive tract produce secretions that control ovulation through a conserved mechanism that could provide insights into ovarian cancer.

    Cell types and neuronal circuitry underlying female aggression in Drosophila

    Catherine E Schretter et al.
    A discrete group of interconnected neurons are shown to drive aggressive social interactions in Drosophila females and genetic tools to manipulate these neuronal cell types are provided.

    GWAS of three molecular traits highlights core genes and pathways alongside a highly polygenic background

    Nasa Sinnott-Armstrong et al.
    Across urate, IGF-1, and testosterone, thousands of dispersed variants contribute to heritability, while previously characterized core pathways are highly enriched for associations and reveal feedback mechanisms governing serum biomarker levels.

    Signaling pathways as linear transmitters

    Harry Nunns, Lea Goentoro
    Mathematical and experimental analyses suggest that despite their complex architectures, multiple metazoan signaling pathways act in physiological contexts as linear signal transmitters.
