    Maternally inherited piRNAs direct transient heterochromatin formation at active transposons during early Drosophila embryogenesis

    Martin H Fabry et al.
    Maternally deposited Piwi-piRNA complexes co-transcriptionally repress transposable elements that transiently become active in somatic cells of the developing Drosophila embryo.

    Novel LOTUS-domain proteins are organizational hubs that recruit C. elegans Vasa to germ granules

    Patricia Giselle Cipriani et al.
    Two novel LOTUS-domain proteins are core germ granule components that directly recruit Caenorhabditis elegans Vasa, regulate germ granule size and localization, and provide an organizational framework for ribonucleoprotein complexes.

    Epi-mutations for spermatogenic defects by maternal exposure to di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate

    Yukiko Tando et al.
    Gene analyses reveal the abnormal DNA methylation and expression of the genes essential for spermatogenesis as a cause of spermatogenic defects in offspring induced by maternal exposure of a chemical.

    Somatic aging pathways regulate reproductive plasticity in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Maria C Ow et al.
    Somatic aging and germline RNAi pathways promote inheritance of ancestral starvation memory through reallocation of fat storage in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    HDAC1 SUMOylation promotes Argonaute-directed transcriptional silencing in C. elegans

    Heesun Kim et al.
    HDAC SUMOylation promotes the association of other chromatin remodeling factors with the nuclear Argonaute WAGO-9, which is required for de novo heterochromatin silencing.

    Male pheromones modulate synaptic transmission at the C. elegans neuromuscular junction in a sexually dimorphic manner

    Kang-Ying Qian et al.
    Male pheromone environment increases the cholinergic synaptic transmission at the neuromuscular junction in Caenorhabditis elegans hermaphrodites during development, decreasing hermaphrodites' locomotion activity and promoting mating efficiency.

    Paternal multigenerational exposure to an obesogenic diet drives epigenetic predisposition to metabolic diseases in mice

    Georges Raad et al.
    Predisposition to obesity-associated diseases is dependent on the ancestors' diet.

    Stress resets ancestral heritable small RNA responses

    Leah Houri-Zeevi et al.
    Various types of stress reset heritable small RNA responses through the function of the p38 MAPK pathway, the transcription factor SKN-1/Nrf2, and the MET-2/SETDB1 putative histone methyltransferase.

    SNPC-1.3 is a sex-specific transcription factor that drives male piRNA expression in C. elegans

    Charlotte P Choi et al.
    snpc-1.3 specifies male piRNA transcription and is regulated by the sex determination pathway.
