    Rheotaxis facilitates upstream navigation of mammalian sperm cells

    Vasily Kantsler et al.
    Mammalian sperm subject to shear flow swim in upstream spirals along the walls bounding such flows, thereby demonstrating a robust mechanism for upstream navigation to the ovum.

    ATP activation of peritubular cells drives testicular sperm transport

    David Fleck et al.
    Purinergic signaling controls mammalian sperm transport.

    Drosophila seminal sex peptide associates with rival as well as own sperm, providing SP function in polyandrous females

    Snigdha Misra, Mariana F Wolfner
    A seminal protein from a mating-male can bind sperm previously stored in his mate, providing direct benefits to the sperm from the prior male that mated with her.

    Persistent Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in mice requires PerM for successful cell division

    Ruojun Wang et al.
    PerM-mediated FtsB stabilization is essential for cell division of Mycobacterium tuberculosis during chronic but not acute mouse infections.

    COMP-1 promotes competitive advantage of nematode sperm

    Jody M Hansen et al.
    Nematode sperm respond to competitive environments by modulating cellular pathways involved in migration and storage to ensure their access to oocytes.

    Controlling fertilization and cAMP signaling in sperm by optogenetics

    Vera Jansen et al.
    Optogenetics is a non-invasive way to study cAMP signaling in sperm cells, which is able to control sperm motility and fertilization.

    The SERM/SERD bazedoxifene disrupts ESR1 helix 12 to overcome acquired hormone resistance in breast cancer cells

    Sean W Fanning et al.
    Bazedoxifene's SERD activities enable it to resist the impact of activating ESR1 mutations in breast cancer.

    An ancient germ cell-specific RNA-binding protein protects the germline from cryptic splice site poisoning

    Ingrid Ehrmann et al.
    Cell division by meiosis during sperm production depends on expression of an RNA-binding protein that prevents abnormal RNA-processing pathways.

    Oviductal estrogen receptor α signaling prevents protease-mediated embryo death

    Wipawee Winuthayanon et al.
    Cyclic estrogen signaling in oviduct epithelial cells suppresses oviduct luminal protease activity to allow survival and development of preimplantation embryos

    Ovulation in Drosophila is controlled by secretory cells of the female reproductive tract

    Jianjun Sun, Allan C Spradling
    Secretory cells in the fruit fly reproductive tract produce secretions that control ovulation through a conserved mechanism that could provide insights into ovarian cancer.
