    NOVA regulates Dcc alternative splicing during neuronal migration and axon guidance in the spinal cord

    Janelle C Leggere et al.
    Alternative splicing of the Dcc gene, which is controlled by the NOVA RNA-binding proteins, is crucial during neuronal migration and axon guidance.

    A robust activity marking system for exploring active neuronal ensembles

    Andreas T Sørensen et al.
    A new system for tagging activated neuronal population offers multiple advantages over existing systems based on immediate early genes, including greater sensitivity and specificity, and suitability for easy application in species other than mice.

    Precardiac deletion of Numb and Numblike reveals renewal of cardiac progenitors

    Lincoln T Shenje et al.
    Cardiac progenitors remain undifferentiated and expansive in the second pharyngeal arch that serves as a microenvironment, and Numb and Numblike are required for their renewal.

    MEGF8 is a modifier of BMP signaling in trigeminal sensory neurons

    Caitlin Engelhard et al.
    A protein called Megf8 regulates the activity of key signaling molecules involved in the development of the peripheral nervous system.

    An unmet actin requirement explains the mitotic inhibition of clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Satdip Kaur et al.
    Endocytosis is switched off in dividing cells because actin is not available to assist the clathrin machinery at a time when membrane tension is increased.

    A role for PVRL4-driven cell–cell interactions in tumorigenesis

    Natalya N Pavlova et al.
    A protein called PVRL4 has a central role in a number of cancers that originate in epithelial tissue, and anti-PVRL4 antibodies could be used to treat some of these cancers.

    Membrane immersion allows rhomboid proteases to achieve specificity by reading transmembrane segment dynamics

    Syed M Moin, Sinisa Urban
    Intramembrane proteases identify target proteins in a different way from other proteases.

    Wnt signaling-mediated redox regulation maintains the germ line stem cell differentiation niche

    Su Wang et al.
    Wnt signaling regulates cellular redox in the germline stem cell differentiation niche via a novel regulatory mechanism, thereby controlling germ line stem cell progeny differentiation.

    Robo2 acts in trans to inhibit Slit-Robo1 repulsion in pre-crossing commissural axons

    Timothy A Evans et al.
    The Roundabout2 receptor acts non-autonomously to promote commissural axons to cross the midline by antagonizing Slit-dependent axon repulsion.

    Mechano-redox control of integrin de-adhesion

    Freda Passam et al.
    Ligand binding, force and chemistry combine to control the function of a cell surface receptor.
