    Emx2 regulates hair cell rearrangement but not positional identity within neuromasts

    Sho Ohta et al.
    Emx2 is not required for sibling HCs to acquire their designated locations within the neuromast, inferring that Emx2 mediates opposite HC orientation by changing location of hair bundle establishment.

    Myosin III-mediated cross-linking and stimulation of actin bundling activity of Espin

    Haiyang Liu et al.
    The tail domain of Myosin III binds to and cross-links actin bundling protein Espin1 and thus modulates higher order actin bundle structures in cellular processes such as stereocilia and microvilli.

    Dysregulation of sonic hedgehog signaling causes hearing loss in ciliopathy mouse models

    Kyeong-Hye Moon et al.
    Developmental defects of the cochlea caused by dysregulation of sonic hedgehog signaling are the potential etiology for hearing loss in a group of ciliopathies with defective ciliogenesis.

    Reciprocal action of Casein Kinase Iε on core planar polarity proteins regulates clustering and asymmetric localisation

    Helen Strutt et al.
    Casein kinase Iε phosphorylation has opposite effects on the stability of the core planar polarity proteins Strabismus and Dishevelled, leading to their sorting to opposite cell ends.

    Stiffness and tension gradients of the hair cell’s tip-link complex in the mammalian cochlea

    Mélanie Tobin et al.
    The tip-link complex of the hair cell is mechanically tuned along the tonotopic axis of the cochlea.

    Directional selectivity of afferent neurons in zebrafish neuromasts is regulated by Emx2 in presynaptic hair cells

    Young Rae Ji et al.
    Emx2 mediates the directional selectivity of neuromasts by regulating hair bundle orientation in hair cells, and by selecting afferent neuronal targets.

    Murine Fam65b forms ring-like structures at the base of stereocilia critical for mechanosensory hair cell function

    Bo Zhao et al.
    Super-resolution microscopy reveals a highly organized compartment in the stereocilia of mechanosensory hair cells of the inner ear, which is critical for hair cell function and affected in disease.
