    A universal vector concept for a direct genotyping of transgenic organisms and a systematic creation of homozygous lines

    Frederic Strobl et al.
    In transgenesis assays involving diploid model organisms, two clearly distinguishable transformation markers embedded in interweaved, but incompatible Lox site pairs allow the systematic creation of homozygous transgenic lines and minimize the number of wasted animals.

    An in vivo reporter for tracking lipid droplet dynamics in transparent zebrafish

    Dianne Lumaquin et al.
    A novel transgenic lipid droplet reporter in transparent casper zebrafish allows direct visualization of individual lipid droplets in a living animal.

    Transgenic shRNA pigs reduce susceptibility to foot and mouth disease virus infection

    Shengwei Hu et al.
    A transgenic small hairpin RNA can provide a viable tool for enhancing resistance to viral infection in livestock and improve animal well-being.

    Rigid firing sequences undermine spatial memory codes in a neurodegenerative mouse model

    Jingheng Cheng, Daoyun Ji
    In a mouse model of neurodegeneration, hippocampal firing sequences that normally encode spatial memories become disengaged from external space.

    Tracing neuronal circuits in transgenic animals by transneuronal control of transcription (TRACT)

    Ting-hao Huang et al.
    A new method that will allow researchers to visualize and genetically manipulate synaptically connected neurons in a brain circuit.

    Neuropeptide VF neurons promote sleep via the serotonergic raphe

    Daniel A Lee et al.
    Experiments using zebrafish identify a novel sleep-promoting neuronal circuit in which hypothalamic NPVF neurons promote sleep via the hindbrain serotonergic raphe nuclei, which promote sleep in both zebrafish and mice.

    Genetic transformation of Spizellomyces punctatus, a resource for studying chytrid biology and evolutionary cell biology

    Edgar M Medina et al.
    Spizellomycespunctatusis a genetically tractable chytrid and model organism for comparative cell biology for understanding evolution of the cell cycle, actin dynamics, and cellularization in fungi and early eukaryotes.

    Large-scale cell-type-specific imaging of protein synthesis in a vertebrate brain

    Or David Shahar, Erin Margaret Schuman
    The development of a transgenic zebrafish allows for cell-type-specific labeling of neuronal protein synthesis, enabling brain-wide visualization and quantification of protein synthesis and demonstrating region-specific increases following elevated brain activity.

    Transgenesis and web resources in quail

    Olivier Serralbo et al.
    Transfection of quail primordial germ cells considerably expands the possibilities of genome modifications in birds, elevating the quail to the rank of genetic laboratory animal models of reference.

    Vascular dimorphism ensured by regulated proteoglycan dynamics favors rapid umbilical artery closure at birth

    Sumeda Nandadasa et al.
    Morphologic, molecular, biomechanical and computational analyses show that the specialized extracellular matrix architecture of the umbilical artery contributes to its rapid closure at birth and regulates smooth muscle cell differentiation.
