    Rampant tooth loss across 200 million years of frog evolution

    Daniel J Paluh et al.
    Teeth are maintained in two amphibian groups (caecilians and salamanders) but were lost in frogs over 20 times independently, a higher incidence of edentulism than any other major vertebrate group.
    1. Immunology and Inflammation

    Perinatal development of innate immune topology

    Philipp Henneke et al.
    At the transition from intrauterine to postnatal life, drastic environmental alterations are mirrored by changes in cellular immunity, which are in part immune cell intrinsic and have lasting health impact.

    The transcription factor Rreb1 regulates epithelial architecture, invasiveness, and vasculogenesis in early mouse embryos

    Sophie M Morgani et al.
    Loss of the transcription factor Rreb1 results perturbs epithelial architecture during mouse development resulting in invasive cell behaviors, severe cardiovascular defects, and embryonic lethality.

    Disruption of entire Cables2 locus leads to embryonic lethality by diminished Rps21 gene expression and enhanced p53 pathway

    Tra Thi Huong Dinh et al.
    Mouse genetic manipulations reveal that Cables2 is involved in the progress of gastrulation by interacting with Wnt/β-catenin and the p53 pathways in diminished Rps21 expression.

    Striking parallels between dorsoventral patterning in Drosophila and Gryllus reveal a complex evolutionary history behind a model gene regulatory network

    Matthias Pechmann et al.
    Crucial functions of Toll signalling during dorsoventral axis formation might have evolved convergently in flies and crickets.

    The recycling endosome protein Rab25 coordinates collective cell movements in the zebrafish surface epithelium

    Patrick Morley Willoughby et al.
    Rab25a and Rab25b mutant embryos exhibit epithelial spreading delays during morphogenesis and are characterized by cytokinesis defects leading to cell fusions, heterogeneous epithelial cell sizes, and reduced cortical actomyosin contractility.
    1. Neuroscience

    Anatomy and activity patterns in a multifunctional motor neuron and its surrounding circuits

    Mária Ashaber et al.
    Voltage-dye imaging followed by serial blockface electron microscopy of the same ganglion reveals structure–function relationships of leech motor behaviors.

    Evolutionary transcriptomics implicates HAND2 in the origins of implantation and regulation of gestation length

    Mirna Marinić et al.
    The transcription factor HAND2 evolved uterine expression during the origins of pregnancy and may be important for maternal-fetal immune signaling and parturition.

    New light shed on the early evolution of limb-bone growth plate and bone marrow

    Jordi Estefa et al.
    A three-dimensional investigation of extinct-tetrapod limbs shows that even though bone elongation and blood-cell production are intimately related to mammal long bones, these functions actually appeared successively in tetrapod evolution.

    Evolution: Unraveling the history of limb bones

    Holly N Woodward
    Ancient fossils give clues as to when features of modern tetrapod bones emerged.
