    Loss of presenilin function is associated with a selective gain of APP function

    Carole Deyts et al.
    Amyloid precursor protein expression and accumulation of its intracellular fragment are required for exuberant neurite outgrowth associated with pathological presenilin 1 loss-of-function mutations before the emergence of amyloid burden in mice.

    Brahma is essential for Drosophila intestinal stem cell proliferation and regulated by Hippo signaling

    Yunyun Jin et al.
    The Brahma chromatin remodelling complex interacts with the Hippo signalling pathway to regulate the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells in the Drosophila midgut.

    Calcium-mediated shaping of naive CD4 T-cell phenotype and function

    Vincent Guichard et al.
    Calcium-calcineurin signaling cascade drives the acquisition of both the phenotype of the most self-reactive naive CD4 T cells and their enhanced cell-intrinsic ability to commit into induced regulatory T cells upon activation.

    FGF mediated MAPK and PI3K/Akt Signals make distinct contributions to pluripotency and the establishment of Neural Crest

    Lauren Geary, Carole LaBonne
    A role for FGF-mediated Map Kinase signaling in the retention of pluripotency underlying genesis of Neural Crest is revealed, along with a striking switch in the signaling cascades activated by FGF signaling as cells commence lineage restriction.

    Bordetella adenylate cyclase toxin is a unique ligand of the integrin complement receptor 3

    Radim Osicka et al.
    A toxin produced by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis preferentially binds to non-activated integrin complement receptor 3 outside of its ligand-binding I-domain and efficiently blocks downstream signaling of the integrin through elevation of cytosolic cAMP.

    PI3K/Akt1 signalling specifies foregut precursors by generating regionalized extra-cellular matrix

    S Nahuel Villegas et al.
    A signalling cascade involving PI3K/Akt1 remodels the extra-cellular matrix to achieve atypical cellular responses and control cell fate specification within the embryonic endoderm.

    Ancient origins of arthropod moulting pathway components

    André Luiz de Oliveira et al.
    Evolutionary reconstruction of the ecdysis pathway shows that its major elements are present in the majority of metazoans, providing evidence that they originated much earlier than currently assumed.

    Misfolded proteins bind and activate death receptor 5 to trigger apoptosis during unresolved endoplasmic reticulum stress

    Mable Lam et al.
    Death receptor 5 can directly sense misfolded proteins downstream of the endoplasmic reticulum to provide a quality control mechanism that executes apoptosis and prevents further production of misfolded proteins.

    Squalene emulsion-based vaccine adjuvants stimulate CD8 T cell, but not antibody responses, through a RIPK3-dependent pathway

    Eui Ho Kim et al.
    Experiments in mice provide insights into the immunological mechanisms of action the vaccine adjuvant MF59.

    TNFR1-dependent cell death drives inflammation in Sharpin-deficient mice

    James A Rickard et al.
    Skin inflammation in Sharpin-deficient mice is primarily due to TNFR1-dependent apoptosis, but necroptosis appears to play a bigger role in inflammation of internal organs.
