    Trithorax maintains the functional heterogeneity of neural stem cells through the transcription factor Buttonhead

    Hideyuki Komori et al.
    The Drosophila equivalent of the human protein Mixed Lineage Leukemia 1n enables neural stem cells to generate neural progenitors through the fly equivalent of the human transcription factor Sp8, thereby contributing to an increased number and diversity of cell types during brain development.

    Firefly genomes illuminate parallel origins of bioluminescence in beetles

    Timothy R Fallon et al.
    The first genomic view of beetle luciferase evolution indicates evolutionary independence of luciferase between fireflies and click-beetles, and provide valuable datasets which will accelerate the discovery of new biotechnological tools.

    The Hippo effector Yorkie activates transcription by interacting with a histone methyltransferase complex through Ncoa6

    Yun Qing et al.
    Elucidating the molecular mechanism by which the Hippo signaling effector Yorkie (Yki) functions as a transcriptional coactivator in growth control reveals the importance of a histone-modifying enzyme for this process.

    HBO1-MLL interaction promotes AF4/ENL/P-TEFb-mediated leukemogenesis

    Satoshi Takahashi et al.
    Interaction of the MLL and HBO1 complexes is a key nexus for leukemic transformation that can serve as a therapeutic target.

    The H3K4 methyltransferase Setd1b is essential for hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homeostasis in mice

    Kerstin Schmidt et al.
    The H3K4 methyltransferase Setd1b is intrinsically required for hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homeostasis and regulates lineage specification in mice.

    Homeostatic plasticity fails at the intersection of autism-gene mutations and a novel class of common genetic modifiers

    Özgür Genç et al.
    Forward genetic screens define a novel genetic landscape by which diverse, unrelated autism risk genes may converge to commonly affect the robustness of synaptic transmission.

    Elba, a novel developmentally regulated chromatin boundary factor is a hetero-tripartite DNA binding complex

    Tsutomu Aoki et al.
    A chromatin boundary factor that is only active during early embryo development has been discovered in Drosophila.

    Atrophin controls developmental signaling pathways via interactions with Trithorax-like

    Kelvin Yeung et al.
    ChIP-seq and phenotypic analyses reveal Atrophin from Drosophila directly regulates Notch and Dpp signaling components, and engrailed gene expression, via interactions with GAGA Factor.

    KDM2B links the Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) to recognition of CpG islands

    Anca M Farcas et al.
    A protein that can recognize regions of DNA with a high proportion of unmethylated CpG dinucleotides, and then recruit polycomb group proteins to these CpG islands, has been identified.
