    Mitochondrial fusion but not fission regulates larval growth and synaptic development through steroid hormone production

    Hector Sandoval et al.
    The dual role of Drosophila Mitofusin in steroid hormone production and cholesterol ester storage, which is evolutionary conserved by the combined expression of the two mammalian Mitofusins, ensures proper synaptic development.

    miR-124 controls male reproductive success in Drosophila

    Ruifen Weng et al.
    A small RNA molecule called miR-124 controls pheromone production and sexual behaviour in Drosophila by regulating sex-specific gene expression in males.

    Overall energy conversion efficiency of a photosynthetic vesicle

    Melih Sener et al.
    The overall energy conversion efficiency is calculated for a bacterial vesicle that harvests solar energy for ATP production on the basis of an atomic-detail structural model.

    Patterns of call communication between group-housed zebra finches change during the breeding cycle

    Lisa F Gill et al.
    Call-based vocal communication of individually recorded zebra finches changes in social groups across reproductive stages and is related with successful egg laying.

    SIR-2.1 integrates metabolic homeostasis with the reproductive neuromuscular excitability in early aging male Caenorhabditis elegans

    Xiaoyan Guo, L René García
    A protein called SIR-2.1 helps to protect worms from the effects of aging by regulating metabolic processes that would otherwise generate damaging reactive oxygen species.

    Acquisition of exogenous haem is essential for tick reproduction

    Jan Perner et al.
    The lack of haem biosynthetic and degradative pathways in ticks offers new strategies to combat these parasites.

    Endocrine remodelling of the adult intestine sustains reproduction in Drosophila

    Tobias Reiff et al.
    A hormone released after mating acts directly on adult intestinal progenitors and differentiated epithelial cells in Drosophila to change their homeostatic setpoint and maximise fecundity.
