    Ezrin enrichment on curved membranes requires a specific conformation or interaction with a curvature-sensitive partner

    Feng-Ching Tsai et al.
    Ezrin, an important actin-membrane linker, can zip adjacent membranes, be enriched to positively-curved membranes when phosphorylated and to negatively-curved membranes through a direct interaction with membrane curvature sensor I-BAR domain proteins.

    Detailed analysis of chick optic fissure closure reveals Netrin-1 as an essential mediator of epithelial fusion

    Holly Hardy et al.
    Chick optic fissure closure is a powerful new model system for epithelial fusion and has revealed Netrin-1 as a conserved and essential mediator of tissue fusion in multiple contexts.

    Synergistic integration of Netrin and ephrin axon guidance signals by spinal motor neurons

    Sebastian Poliak et al.
    The Netrin-1 and ephrin-B2 proteins act synergistically in the developing nervous system.

    Ezrin activation by LOK phosphorylation involves a PIP2-dependent wedge mechanism

    Thaher Pelaseyed et al.
    Phosphorylation of ezrin involves an unusual mechanism requiring coincident binding to PIP2 and involvement of the non-catalytic domain to gain access to the phosphorylation site thereby restricting selective phosphorylation to the plasma membrane.

    Patterns of call communication between group-housed zebra finches change during the breeding cycle

    Lisa F Gill et al.
    Call-based vocal communication of individually recorded zebra finches changes in social groups across reproductive stages and is related with successful egg laying.

    Transformation of temporal sequences in the zebra finch auditory system

    Yoonseob Lim et al.
    Songbirds discriminate synthetic sounds composed of temporal patterns of clicks, which they transform into distinct ensemble or spatial patterns in successive stages of neural auditory processing.

    Neuron-wide RNA transport combines with netrin-mediated local translation to spatially regulate the synaptic proteome

    Sangmok Kim, Kelsey C Martin
    The spatial regulation of gene expression within neurons occurs primarily at the level of local translation rather than by stimulus-induced RNA targeting from nucleus to synapse.

    Auditory synapses to song premotor neurons are gated off during vocalization in zebra finches

    Kosuke Hamaguchi et al.
    Intracellular recordings in singing birds and images of synapses in deafened birds provide insights into the neural circuitry that enables songbirds to fine-tune their songs.

    Gradient-reading and mechano-effector machinery for netrin-1-induced axon guidance

    Kentarou Baba et al.
    Shootin1a, through its spatially regulated phosphorylation within growth cones, mediates the gradient reading and mechanoresponse for netrin-1-induced axon guidance.
