    Integration of Tmc1/2 into the mechanotransduction complex in zebrafish hair cells is regulated by Transmembrane O-methyltransferase (Tomt)

    Timothy Erickson et al.
    A zebrafish model for a particular form of human deafness (DFNB63) changes our view of this disease by revealing a defect in the localization of Transmembrane channel-like proteins that are essential for mechanotransduction in sensory cells.

    Multifactorial processes underlie parallel opsin loss in neotropical bats

    Alexa Sadier et al.
    Parallel losses of short-wave light sensitivity in diverse bats occurred through independent changes at multiple steps in the conversion of genotype into functional phenotype, including pre-, during, and post-transcription.

    Evolution of gene dosage on the Z-chromosome of schistosome parasites

    Marion A L Picard et al.
    An analysis of gene dosage at the DNA, RNA and protein level yields new insights into the early stages of Z-chromosome dosage compensation in schistosome parasites.

    TALE factors use two distinct functional modes to control an essential zebrafish gene expression program

    Franck Ladam et al.
    TALE transcription factors bind different genomic motifs and function together with different protein partners at different stages of zebrafish embryogenesis.

    Molecular shifts in limb identity underlie development of feathered feet in two domestic avian species

    Eric T Domyan et al.
    Feathered feet of pigeons and chickens result from a partial molecular and morphological transformation of legs to a wing-like identity.

    Sequential phenotypic constraints on social information use in wild baboons

    Alecia J Carter et al.
    Social information is a process encompassing information acquisition, application and exploitation that is constrained by an individual’s social, behavioural and demographic phenotype.

    Fish larval recruitment to reefs is a thyroid hormone-mediated metamorphosis sensitive to the pesticide chlorpyrifos

    Guillaume Holzer et al.
    Coral reef fish larval recruitment is a metamorphosis that can be disturbed by reef pollutants, as it is under the influence of the environment through the direct control of thyroid hormone signaling.

    Lipid droplet biology and evolution illuminated by the characterization of a novel perilipin in teleost fish

    James G Granneman et al.
    Phylogenetic, biochemical, and genetic techniques reveal a novel and ancient member of the Perilipin family, termed Plin6, that functions to concentrate and traffic lipophilic skin pigment in teleost fish.

    5α-cyprinol sulfate, a bile salt from fish, induces diel vertical migration in Daphnia

    Meike Anika Hahn et al.
    A fish-derived bile salt was shown to act as interspecific infochemical, inducing the widespread predator avoidance behavior diel vertical migration at picomolar concentrations in freshwater zooplankton of the genus Daphnia.
