    Cell-type diversity and regionalized gene expression in the planarian intestine

    David J Forsthoefel et al.
    Application of laser-capture microdissection to planarian intestinal tissue provides a new tool for analysis of tissue-specific gene expression in flatworms, and a new resource to advance investigations of gastrointestinal regeneration.

    SARS-CoV-2 entry into human airway organoids is serine protease-mediated and facilitated by the multibasic cleavage site

    Anna Z Mykytyn et al.
    Whereas SARS-CoV-2 utilizes cathepsins to enter most cell lines, human airway organoids revealed that entry into relevant cells is dependent on serine proteases, which can be targeted for treatment.

    Wnt3 distribution in the zebrafish brain is determined by expression, diffusion and multiple molecular interactions

    Sapthaswaran Veerapathiran et al.
    Wnt3 accomplishes long-range distribution by extracellular diffusion controlled by expression, tissue morphology, interactions with heparan sulfate proteoglycans, and co-receptor-mediated receptor binding to regulate brain development in zebrafish embryos.

    Meiotic cellular rejuvenation is coupled to nuclear remodeling in budding yeast

    Grant A King et al.
    A meiotic nuclear remodeling event mediates cellular rejuvenation through elimination of senescence factors.

    Megakaryocyte emperipolesis mediates membrane transfer from intracytoplasmic neutrophils to platelets

    Pierre Cunin et al.
    In a novel cell-in-cell interaction termed emperipolesis, neutrophils routinely transit through the cytoplasm of bone marrow megakaryocytes to pass surface membrane to newly-generated hybrid platelets.

    Inducible mechanisms of disease tolerance provide an alternative strategy of acquired immunity to malaria

    Wiebke Nahrendorf et al.
    Malaria remodels the spleen to imprint tolerance and reduce pathology in subsequent infections.

    Identification and functional characterization of muscle satellite cells in Drosophila

    Dhananjay Chaturvedi et al.
    Modeling adult muscle homeostasis, maintenance and repair will now be possible in Drosophila with the discovery of satellite cells equivalents in flight muscles.

    Heparan sulfates are critical regulators of the inhibitory megakaryocyte-platelet receptor G6b-B

    Timo Vögtle et al.
    Heparan sulfates in the vessel wall bind and regulate signaling from the megakaryocyte/platelet-specific inhibitory receptor G6b-B, a critical regulator of platelet homeostasis.

    Molecular conservation of marsupial and eutherian placentation and lactation

    Michael W Guernsey et al.
    The short-lived tammar wallaby placenta expresses genes resembling eutherian placentas, establishing marsupials as "placental mammals", further, dynamic lactation allows marsupials to compensate for short placentation by expressing key placental genes in the mammary gland.
