    C. elegans orthologs MUT-7/CeWRN-1 of Werner syndrome protein regulate neuronal plasticity

    Tsung-Yuan Hsu et al.
    The olfactory learning of Caenorhabditis elegans shows that the exonuclease and helicase domains of human Werner syndrome protein (WRN) coordinately regulate the biogenesis of small interfering RNAs to promote neuronal plasticity.

    Actomyosin regulation by Eph receptor signaling couples boundary cell formation to border sharpness

    Jordi Cayuso et al.
    Boundary cell identity and sharpening of borders are coupled in hindbrain development since both are regulated by mechanical tension.

    A single-parasite transcriptional atlas of Toxoplasma Gondii reveals novel control of antigen expression

    Yuan Xue et al.
    Single-cell RNA-sequencing resolves the transcriptional landscape of asexual development in Toxoplasma gondii, revealing concerted genetic programs to Plasmodiumfalciparum and a novel transcriptional factor that controls antigen switching.

    Nutritional control of body size through FoxO-Ultraspiracle mediated ecdysone biosynthesis

    Takashi Koyama et al.
    In Drosophila melanogaster, nutrition controls body size by acting through the Forkhead Box class O (FoxO)/Ultraspiracle complex to regulate nutrition-sensitive ecdysone biosynthesis, thereby controlling the switch to stop growth.

    Protein-mediated RNA folding governs sequence-specific interactions between rotavirus genome segments

    Alexander Borodavka et al.
    In rotaviruses, the selective packaging of eleven distinct genomic RNA segments requires virus-encoded protein NSP2 to alter the RNA structures, facilitating their interactions with each other.

    Cardiac pathologies in mouse loss of imprinting models are due to misexpression of H19 long noncoding RNA

    Ki-Sun Park et al.
    Maternal loss of imprinting at the Igf2/H19 locus reduces expression of H19 lncRNA and thereby leads to progressive cardiac pathologies in a mouse Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome model.

    PAX3-FOXO1 transgenic zebrafish models identify HES3 as a mediator of rhabdomyosarcoma tumorigenesis

    Genevieve C Kendall et al.
    The basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor, HES3, acts downstream of the PAX3-FOXO1 fusion oncogene to impair muscle differentiation and promote tumorigenesis in rhabdomyosarcoma, a childhood muscle cancer.

    Programmed knockout mutation of liver fluke granulin attenuates virulence of infection-induced hepatobiliary morbidity

    Patpicha Arunsan et al.
    Gene knockout of liver fluke granulin by CRISPR/Cas9 attenuates the virulence of infection with a carcinogenic liver fluke.

    A novel GSK3-regulated APC:Axin interaction regulates Wnt signaling by driving a catalytic cycle of efficient βcatenin destruction

    Mira I Pronobis et al.
    A new dynamic mechanistic model explains how the destruction complex negatively regulates Wnt signaling in development and oncogenesis.

    Innovation of heterochromatin functions drives rapid evolution of essential ZAD-ZNF genes in Drosophila

    Bhavatharini Kasinathan et al.
    Heterochromatic sequences evolve rapidly, as do ZAD-ZNF genes-encoding proteins involved in heterochromatin functions, explaining why evolutionarily dynamic ZAD-ZNF genes are more likely to be essential in Drosophila.
