    Novel transgenic pigs with enhanced growth and reduced environmental impact

    Xianwei Zhang et al.
    Transgenic expression of glucanase, xylanase and phytase in pigs enhances growth performance and reduces nitrogen/phosphorus emission, and offers a very valuable biological strategy for sustainable resource utilization and environmental protection in the pork industry.

    Functionally asymmetric motor neurons contribute to coordinating locomotion of Caenorhabditis elegans

    Oleg Tolstenkov et al.
    The 'missing' class of Caenorhabditis elegans excitatory motor neurons, AS, contribute to propagation and coordination of body waves, integrating information from, and feeding back to premotor interneurons byelectrical signaling.

    BLADE-ON-PETIOLE proteins act in an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex to regulate PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR 4 abundance

    Bo Zhang et al.
    The abundance of the PIF4 transcription factor, central in light and temperature signaling, is controlled by an E3 ligase encoded by BOP proteins.

    Cross-species functional diversity within the PIN auxin efflux protein family

    Devin Lee O'Connor et al.
    Comparative genetics between distant plant species shows that for the PIN auxin transport proteins differential membrane and tissue-level accumulation, transport activity, and interaction result in different functional properties in the shoot post transcription.

    Rhodopsin targeted transcriptional silencing by DNA-binding

    Salvatore Botta et al.
    Photoreceptor genomic binding of a 20 base-pair-long DNA sequence by a synthetic DNA-binding protein turns off Rhodopsin expression.

    HDAC3 restrains CD8-lineage genes to maintain a bi-potential state in CD4+CD8+ thymocytes for CD4-lineage commitment

    Rachael Laura Philips et al.
    CD4 lineage commitment requires HDAC3 to prevent premature upregulation of CD8 lineage genes during T cell development.
