    Circadian regulation of vertebrate cone photoreceptor function

    Jingjing Zang et al.
    Circadian expression of cone visual transduction genes and corresponding proteins correlates with circadian changes in photoresponse kinetics and visual behavior, linking circadian gene expression with physiological and behavioral rhythmicity.

    Ectocytosis prevents accumulation of ciliary cargo in C. elegans sensory neurons

    Adria Razzauti, Patrick Laurent
    Disposal of ciliary proteins via ectosomes budding from cilia tip or cilia base acts as a safeguard mechanism when cilia trafficking functions are impaired.

    Cell-to-cell heterogeneity in Sox2 and Bra expression guides progenitor motility and destiny

    Michèle Romanos et al.
    Spatial variations of transcription factor expression regulate the choice of progenitors to stay in their niche or to migrate into neural and mesodermal tissues.

    Apical contacts stemming from incomplete delamination guide progenitor cell allocation through a dragging mechanism

    Eduardo Pulgar et al.
    Incomplete delamination serves as a cellular platform for coordinated tissue movements during development, guiding newly formed progenitor cell groups to the differentiation site.

    Translational control of polyamine metabolism by CNBP is required for Drosophila locomotor function

    Sonia Coni et al.
    A decrease of the type 2 myotonic dystrophy gene product CNBP causes an impairment of polyamine metabolism and locomotor dysfunction that can be reverted with polyamine supplementation.

    Linker histone H1.8 inhibits chromatin binding of condensins and DNA topoisomerase II to tune chromosome length and individualization

    Pavan Choppakatla et al.
    Linker histone H1.8 shapes mitotic chromosomes by tuning the number and size of condensin-dependent DNA loops and suppressing condensin and DNA topoisomerase II-dependent individualization.

    Intracellular functions and motile properties of bi-directional kinesin-5 Cin8 are regulated by neck linker docking

    Alina Goldstein-Levitin et al.
    Precise hydrogen-bond stabilization of the neck linker docking onto the catalytic motor domain, is crucial for motor activity and intracellular functions of the bi-directional mitotic kinesin-5 Cin8.

    Gjd2b-mediated gap junctions promote glutamatergic synapse formation and dendritic elaboration in Purkinje neurons

    Sahana Sitaraman et al.
    A protein that is a building block of intercellular bridges between neurons promotes their ability to grow dendrites and make synapses.

    Relish plays a dynamic role in the niche to modulate Drosophila blood progenitor homeostasis in development and infection

    Parvathy Ramesh et al.
    Ecdysone-mediated regulation of Relish expression and activation in the hematopoietic niche is essential for progenitor maintenance in the Drosophila Lymph gland.

    Nucleo-cytoplasmic shuttling of splicing factor SRSF1 is required for development and cilia function

    Fiona Haward et al.
    A mouse model where the splicing factor SRSF1 was prevented from accumulating in the cytoplasm revealed reduced translation of thousands of mRNAs and postnatal phenotypes particularly affecting multiciliated cells.
