    Ecdysone steroid hormone remote controls intestinal stem cell fate decisions via the PPARγ-homolog Eip75B in Drosophila

    Lisa Zipper et al.
    A systemic hormone controls progenitor fate decisions independent of local fate determining pathways in the adult intestinal stem cell niche of Drosophila melanogaster..

    Sustained TNF-α stimulation leads to transcriptional memory that greatly enhances signal sensitivity and robustness

    Zuodong Zhao et al.
    Sustained TNF-α induction consolidates transcriptional memory for faster, stronger, and more sensitive subsequent induction in an active DNA demethylation-dependent manner for memory genes including CALCB, a therapeutic target for migraine.

    BAD inactivation exacerbates rheumatoid arthritis pathology by promoting survival of sublining macrophages

    Jie Li et al.
    Phosphorylation-mediated inactivation of pro-apoptotic BCL-2 family protein BAD confers the apoptosis resistance on synovial sublining macrophages, thereby contributing to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.

    Spatial readout of visual looming in the central brain of Drosophila

    Mai M Morimoto et al.
    In the Drosophila central brain, synaptic connectivity extracts visual-spatial information from the axons of looming sensitive LC6 neurons that terminate in a glomerulus with minimal retinotopy.

    Learning speed and detection sensitivity controlled by distinct cortico-fugal neurons in visual cortex

    Sarah Ruediger, Massimo Scanziani
    Neural pathways from mammalian visual cortex to ancestral brain structures control learning speed and performance of a simple detection task.

    Removing unwanted variation with CytofRUV to integrate multiple CyTOF datasets

    Marie Trussart et al.
    CytofRUV is a computational algorithm that effectively enables batch effect reduction in multiple CyTOF batches with an adaptable normalisation method and an R-Shiny application with diagnostics plots.

    Secondary ossification center induces and protects growth plate structure

    Meng Xie et al.
    The principle underlying the appearance of the growth plate, an organ responsible for longitudinal growth, has implications for various cartilage pathologies including growth abnormalities in children, trauma and osteoarthritis.

    The effect of hybridization on transposable element accumulation in an undomesticated fungal species

    Mathieu Hénault et al.
    Transposable elements are not reactivated in natural hybrids of the yeast Saccharomyces paradoxus, but their accumulation is genotype-specific and is not predicted by the evolutionary divergence between a hybrid's parents.

    Smchd1 is a maternal effect gene required for genomic imprinting

    Iromi Wanigasuriya et al.
    Imprinted gene expression is set up during a critical window of early embryonic development, by the translation of parental imprints by oocyte-supplied Smchd1 into allele-specific gene silencing.
