    Uncoupling apical constriction from tissue invagination

    SeYeon Chung et al.
    Spatially coordinated apical constriction occurs during Drosophila salivary gland invagination, but the salivary gland can form fully internalized and elongated tubes even when this process is completely blocked.

    The Hippo pathway effector YAP is an essential regulator of ductal progenitor patterning in the mouse submandibular gland

    Aleksander D Szymaniak et al.
    The transcriptional regulator YAP directs the specification and differentiation of stem cells that give rise to salivary gland ductal epithelium.

    Motility precedes egress of malaria parasites from oocysts

    Dennis Klug, Friedrich Frischknecht
    A surface protein triggers intra-oocyst motility of Plasmodium sporozoites to ensure parasite egress from oocysts.

    Novel transgenic pigs with enhanced growth and reduced environmental impact

    Xianwei Zhang et al.
    Transgenic expression of glucanase, xylanase and phytase in pigs enhances growth performance and reduces nitrogen/phosphorus emission, and offers a very valuable biological strategy for sustainable resource utilization and environmental protection in the pork industry.

    Point of View: Strategies from UW-Madison for rescuing biomedical research in the US

    Judith Kimble et al.
    A cross-campus, cross-career stage and cross-disciplinary series of discussions at a large public university has produced a series of recommendations for addressing the problems confronting the biomedical research community in the US.

    Cardiovascular adaptation to hypoxia and the role of peripheral resistance

    Andrew S Cowburn et al.
    Radiotelemetric and genetic studies of peripheral tissue response show that a peripheral tissue can dynamically alter cardiovascular adaptation to changes in environmental oxygen.

    Modulation of occluding junctions alters the hematopoietic niche to trigger immune activation

    Rohan J Khadilkar et al.
    Occluding-junctions form a permeability barrier around the hematopoietic niche in Drosophila that controls the production of immune cells in response to infection by shaping the signalling micro-environment produced by the niche.

    Similar synapse elimination motifs at successive relays in the same efferent pathway during development in mice

    Shu-Hsien Sheu et al.
    A similar pattern of developmental synaptic refinement leads two consecutive synaptic relays to have the same organization suggesting that some general principle of neural organization is at play.
