    Nutritional control of body size through FoxO-Ultraspiracle mediated ecdysone biosynthesis

    Takashi Koyama et al.
    In Drosophila melanogaster, nutrition controls body size by acting through the Forkhead Box class O (FoxO)/Ultraspiracle complex to regulate nutrition-sensitive ecdysone biosynthesis, thereby controlling the switch to stop growth.

    Body side-specific control of motor activity during turning in a walking animal

    Matthias Gruhn et al.
    Turning in an insect is the combined result of body-side-specific modifications in processing of local sensory feedback, and modification of local central pattern generator activity.

    Amotl2a interacts with the Hippo effector Yap1 and the Wnt/β-catenin effector Lef1 to control tissue size in zebrafish

    Sobhika Agarwala et al.
    The cell junction-associated protein Amotl2a controls tissue size in the zebrafish lateral line primordium by limiting the activity of the Hippo effector Yap1 and the Wnt effector Lef1.

    Size control of the inner ear via hydraulic feedback

    Kishore R Mosaliganti et al.
    Size regulation of the otic vesicle, the progenitor of the inner ear, is mediated by mechanical feedback involving fluid influx, hydraulic pressure, and tissue mechanics.

    Cell-sized confinement controls generation and stability of a protein wave for spatiotemporal regulation in cells

    Shunshi Kohyama et al.
    A cell-sized fully confined space significantly controls the emergence and stability of a protein wave, resulting in intracellular spatiotemporal regulation driven by a reaction-diffusion mechanism.

    Quality control of transcription start site selection by nonsense-mediated-mRNA decay

    Christophe Malabat et al.
    RNA polymerase II generates numerous transcript isoforms, including transcripts initiating downstream of the START codon, that are efficiently degraded by the nonsense-mediated mRNA decay pathway.

    Localized JNK signaling regulates organ size during development

    Helen Rankin Willsey et al.
    JNK signaling is active in developing Drosophila tissues and is required for achieving proper organ size.

    An external sodium ion binding site controls allosteric gating in TRPV1 channels

    Andres Jara-Oseguera et al.
    Allosteric gating in a transient receptor potential channel is modulated by external sodium ions and a tarantula toxin.

    Multiple interfaces between a serine recombinase and an enhancer control site-specific DNA inversion

    Meghan M McLean et al.
    The structure of the recombination complex responsible for flagellar antigen switching in Salmonella enterica, and the mechanism that regulates the site-specific DNA inversion reaction, have been determined.

    Multiple inputs ensure yeast cell size homeostasis during cell cycle progression

    Cecilia Garmendia-Torres et al.
    Yeast cell size homeostasis is not controlled by a G1-specific mechanism alone but is likely to be an emergent property resulting from the integration of several mechanisms that coordinate cell and bud growth with division.
