    Size control of the inner ear via hydraulic feedback

    Kishore R Mosaliganti et al.
    Size regulation of the otic vesicle, the progenitor of the inner ear, is mediated by mechanical feedback involving fluid influx, hydraulic pressure, and tissue mechanics.

    Lamellar projections in the endolymphatic sac act as a relief valve to regulate inner ear pressure

    Ian A Swinburne et al.
    The pressure of fluid in the inner ear is controlled by opening of cellular valves in the endolymphatic sac to allow for regulated transepithelial fluid flow.

    Osmolarity-independent electrical cues guide rapid response to injury in zebrafish epidermis

    Andrew S Kennard, Julie A Theriot
    Skin cells in zebrafish use sodium chloride-dependent electrical gradients to sense tissue injury and guide migration in the appropriate direction to close the wound.

    High glucose levels increase influenza-associated damage to the pulmonary epithelial-endothelial barrier

    Katina D Hulme et al.
    Hyperglycaemia increases influenza severity by damaging the pulmonary epithelial-endothelial barrier and increasing pulmonary oedema during Influenza A virus infection.

    The homophilic receptor PTPRK selectively dephosphorylates multiple junctional regulators to promote cell–cell adhesion

    Gareth W Fearnley et al.
    Systematic proteomic approaches identify several cell junction regulators as substrates for the homophilic receptor tyrosine phosphatase PTPRK and implicate its pseudophosphatase domain in substrate recognition.

    LRRC8A is essential for hypotonicity-, but not for DAMP-induced NLRP3 inflammasome activation

    Jack P Green et al.
    Depletion of LRRC8A provides genetic evidence for the importance of Cl- channels in NLRP3 activation.

    Vibrio deploys type 2 secreted lipase to esterify cholesterol with host fatty acids and mediate cell egress

    Suneeta Chimalapati et al.
    Considering the course of a pathogen's evolution, there appears to be interplay between secretion systems, providing unique, synergistic mechanisms to support a successful lifestyle for possibly pathogenesis, symbiosis and/or parasitosis.

    Lack of airway submucosal glands impairs respiratory host defenses

    Lynda S Ostedgaard et al.
    Submucosal glands are critical for two key respiratory host defenses, bactericidal activity and mucociliary transport, in an animal model that has lungs like humans.

    Cyclin-dependent kinase control of motile ciliogenesis

    Eszter K Vladar et al.
    Cyclin-dependentkinase 2 (Cdk2), the master regulator of S phase events during the cell cycle, controls the earliest step in the motile ciliogenesis pathway in quiescent multiciliatedairway epithelial cells.

    Biochemical adaptations of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium support a metabolic ecosystem in the vertebrate eye

    Mark A Kanow et al.
    Metabolic relationships between cells in the retina and retinal pigment epithelium are fundamental to retinal function, retinal disease and age-related vision loss and they may provide strategies for metabolism-based therapies.
