    Active and water-soluble form of lipidated Wnt protein is maintained by a serum glycoprotein afamin/α-albumin

    Emiko Mihara et al.
    Lipidated and highly hydrophobic Wnt ligands form a complex with the serum glycoprotein afamin, and can be purified and stored in a biologically active form without detergents.

    Conformational change of Dishevelled plays a key regulatory role in the Wnt signaling pathways

    Ho-Jin Lee et al.
    The ligand-binding pocket of the Dishevelled PDZ domain can be occupied by Dishevelled's own highly conserved C-terminus, inducing a closed conformation that is ‘opened’ when Wnt signaling stimulates interaction between Frizzled and Dishevelled.

    The Sec14-like phosphatidylinositol transfer proteins Sec14l3/SEC14L2 act as GTPase proteins to mediate Wnt/Ca2+ signaling

    Bo Gong et al.
    Sec14l3/SEC14L2 respond to upstream Wnt/Frizzled/Dvl stimulation to recruit and activate phospholipase Cδ4a (Plcδ4a) to further initiate calcium release.

    Two FGFRL-Wnt circuits organize the planarian anteroposterior axis

    M Lucila Scimone et al.
    Single-cell RNA sequencing identifies an adult regional gene expression map in planarian muscle that includes two FGFRL-Wnt circuits controlling head and trunk tissue pattern.

    miR-142 regulates the tumorigenicity of human breast cancer stem cells through the canonical WNT signaling pathway

    Taichi Isobe et al.
    Insights into the roles and mechanisms of two of the miRNAs upregulated in human breast cancer stem cells in at least some breast cancers are presented.

    An oxygen-insensitive Hif-3α isoform inhibits Wnt signaling by destabilizing the nuclear β-catenin complex

    Peng Zhang et al.
    Hif/Hif-3α has two distinct roles in cells: activating HRE-dependent gene expression and binding to β-catenin to destabilize the nuclear β-catenin complex.

    A locally-blazed ant trail achieves efficient collective navigation despite limited information

    Ehud Fonio et al.
    Ants employ a new kind of trail to resolve group-level navigational difficulties in scenarios where the information available to individuals does not suffice.

    Localized epigenetic silencing of a damage-activated WNT enhancer limits regeneration in mature Drosophila imaginal discs

    Robin E Harris et al.
    Localized silencing of damage-responsive enhancers can block regenerative growth while permitting those same genes to be used for normal development.

    Wnt, Ptk7, and FGFRL expression gradients control trunk positional identity in planarian regeneration

    Rachel Lander, Christian P Petersen
    Signaling molecules expressed in overlapping body-wide transcriptional gradients determine central axis positional identity in whole-body regeneration.

    Spatially resolved RNA-sequencing of the embryonic heart identifies a role for Wnt/β-catenin signaling in autonomic control of heart rate

    Silja Barbara Burkhard, Jeroen Bakkers
    A genome wide transcriptome dataset of the embryonic zebrafish heart with high spatial resolution was established and used to identify a novel mechanism regulating pacemaker function.
