    A balance of positive and negative regulators determines the pace of the segmentation clock

    Guy Wiedermann et al.
    Computational modelling together with experimental manipulation indicate that the stability and turnover of activated Notch is inextricably linked to the regulation of the pace of segmentation clock gene expression in the presomitic mesoderm.

    A case study for a psychographic-behavioral segmentation approach for targeted demand generation in voluntary medical male circumcision

    Sema K Sgaier et al.
    A novel, hybrid segmentation technique reveals human heterogeneity in barriers towards a behavior, and is applied to characterize distinct segments in voluntary medical male circumcision.

    Odd-paired controls frequency doubling in Drosophila segmentation by altering the pair-rule gene regulatory network

    Erik Clark, Michael Akam
    The organisation of the Drosophila embryo into segmental units is orchestrated by combinatorial regulatory interactions between spatially patterned and temporally patterned transcription factors.

    Sex steroids regulate skin pigmentation through nonclassical membrane-bound receptors

    Christopher A Natale et al.
    Two receptors have been identified that can be targeted in melanocytes with selective small molecule agonists to modulate human skin color.

    Evidence for loss and reacquisition of alcoholic fermentation in a fructophilic yeast lineage

    Carla Gonçalves et al.
    Comparative genomics coupled with genetic and biochemical studies show that central carbon metabolism in fungi can be remodeled by genes originating from bacteria.

    ppargc1a controls nephron segmentation during zebrafish embryonic kidney ontogeny

    Joseph M Chambers et al.
    The transcriptional coactivator ppargc1a regulates the renal progenitor patterning to delineate boundary formation of differentiated segment populations during nephrogenesis.

    Monochromatic multicomponent fluorescence sedimentation velocity for the study of high-affinity protein interactions

    Huaying Zhao et al.
    Fluorescence detected sedimentation velocity offers a new method for studying heterogeneous protein interactions in solution by exploiting characteristic temporal signal modulations of photoswitchable fluorescent proteins.

    Persistence, period and precision of autonomous cellular oscillators from the zebrafish segmentation clock

    Alexis B Webb et al.
    Time-lapse recording and theoretical analysis of individual cells isolated from the zebrafish segmentation clock reveal that they behave as self-sustained, autonomous oscillators with distinctive noisy dynamics.

    Segmentation of the zebrafish axial skeleton relies on notochord sheath cells and not on the segmentation clock

    Laura Lleras Forero et al.
    In contrast to amniotes, zebrafish (ray-finned fish, teleost) centra are formed from specialised notochord sheath cells, and the segmental patterning of these cells is independent of the segmentation clock.

    Evolution of Segmentation: Sox enters the picture

    Felix Kaufholz, Natascha Turetzek
    The discovery of a gene that regulates two segmentation mechanisms in spider embryos is fueling the ongoing debate about the evolution of this crucial developmental process.
