    Epithelial colonies in vitro elongate through collective effects

    Jordi Comelles et al.

    Selective activation of FZD7 promotes mesendodermal differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells

    Diana Gumber et al.
    Selective activation of FZD7 signaling with an engineered WNT mimetic promotes early developmental programs, including endodermal lineage specification, in human pluripotent stem cells.

    Vessel noise levels drive behavioural responses of humpback whales with implications for whale-watching

    Kate R Sprogis et al.
    Controlled exposure experiments reveal that underwater vessel noise level from a motorised vessel is an adequate driver of behavioural disturbance in humpback whales.

    Ion counting demonstrates a high electrostatic field generated by the nucleosome

    Magdalena Gebala et al.
    First experimental studies on the ion atmosphere around a nucleosome provide a quantitative analysis of the molecule's electrostatic properties.

    Changes to social feeding behaviors are not sufficient for fitness gains of the Caenorhabditis elegans N2 reference strain

    Yuehui Zhao et al.
    Use of experimental manipulation demonstrates that social/solitary feeding behaviors are unrelated to the fitness gains conferred by causative alleles in two previously identified genes.

    Computations underlying Drosophila photo-taxis, odor-taxis, and multi-sensory integration

    Ruben Gepner et al.
    Optogenetics and reverse-correlation have decoded the computations by which the Drosophila larva makes navigational decisions on the basis of time-varying sensory neuron activity.

    A dystonia-like movement disorder with brain and spinal neuronal defects is caused by mutation of the mouse laminin β1 subunit, Lamb1

    Yi Bessie Liu et al.
    A mouse with a defined mutation in an extracellular matrix protein that is expressed in selected neurons sheds light on circuit abnormalities producing transient hyperkinetic movements.

    Bacterial flagellar capping proteins adopt diverse oligomeric states

    Sandra Postel et al.
    The first high-resolution structure of a bacterial flagellar cap protein, FliD, reveals new insights into the assembly of bacterial flagella.

    An ancient Pygo-dependent Wnt enhanceosome integrated by Chip/LDB-SSDP

    Marc Fiedler et al.
    The Chip/LDB-SSDP complex integrates multiple signals to render TCF/LEF enhancers Wnt responsive.

    Measuring ligand-cell surface receptor affinities with axial line-scanning fluorescence correlation spectroscopy

    Antonia Franziska Eckert et al.
    A robust fluorescence microscopy-based data acquisition and analysis framework affords the precise measurement of cell surface receptor affinities toward their cognate ligands and their densities in live cells/tissues.
