    Pilot study of large-scale production of mutant pigs by ENU mutagenesis

    Tang Hai et al.
    ENU mutagenesis in pigs is an efficient strategy to introduce mutations at the whole-genome level and mutants have been generated on a large scale for agricultural production and biomedical research.

    Phytotoxin production in Aspergillus terreus is regulated by independent environmental signals

    Markus Gressler et al.
    Elevated methionine levels, or a shortage of nitrogen or iron, induce terrein production in the fungus Aspergillus terreus.

    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.
