    Tailless/TLX reverts intermediate neural progenitors to stem cells driving tumourigenesis via repression of asense/ASCL1

    Anna E Hakes, Andrea H Brand
    Increased expression of Drosophila Tailless (TLX homologue) reverts intermediate progenitors to neural stem cells, inducing tumourigenesis via Asense repression and reflecting mutually exclusive TLX and ASCL1 expression in human glioblastoma.

    Evolutionary emergence of Hairless as a novel component of the Notch signaling pathway

    Steven W Miller et al.
    Hairless emerged as an evolutionarily novel regulatory protein that replaced an ancestral paradigm of direct co-repressor recruitment by Suppressor of Hairless, its partner transcription factor in the Notch signaling pathway.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Genetic, evolutionary and plant breeding insights from the domestication of maize

    Sarah Hake, Jeffrey Ross-Ibarra
    Comparing maize to its wild ancestor teosinte advances our understanding of how it and other cereal crops evolved, and also identifies the genetic variation that can contribute to important agricultural traits.

    Point of View: Predictive regulation and human design

    Peter Sterling
    Why does the human regulatory system, which evolution tuned for small satisfactions, now constantly demand 'more'?

    Transverse sinus injections drive robust whole-brain expression of transgenes

    Ali S Hamodi et al.
    A new viral injection method targets the transverse sinuses to achieve robust whole-brain delivery of single or multiple genes in multiple mammalian species early in development.

    Evolutionary expansion of apical extracellular matrix is required for the elongation of cells in a novel structure

    Sarah Jacquelyn Smith et al.
    A new morphological structure evolved through extreme changes in cell height requires novel connections to an extracellular matrix network, which predates the origin of structure.

    Structural model for differential cap maturation at growing microtubule ends

    Juan Estévez-Gallego et al.
    The tubulin GTPase cycle structurally modulates the microtubule cap, causing lattice expansion, which is an intermediate state involved in phosphate release and regulatory signaling.

    Revisiting the role of Dcc in visual system development with a novel eye clearing method

    Robin J Vigouroux et al.
    A new eye-specific Dcc mutant combined with an improved clearing protocol for the eye and brain (EyeDISCO) reveals the requirement of the receptor Dcc for retinal development and maintenance.

    Visual cue-related activity of cells in the medial entorhinal cortex during navigation in virtual reality

    Amina A Kinkhabwala et al.
    Cue cells in the medial entorhinal cortex encode visual cues during virtual navigation, supporting the hypothesis that the brain represents visual cue information to error-correct grid cell firing during path-integration.
