    Modular, cascade-like transcriptional program of regeneration in Stentor

    Pranidhi Sood et al.
    Regeneration of single Stentor coeruleus cells is accompanied by a program of gene expression that can be decomposed into distinct modules, showing a cascade-like organization, and involving genes with conserved function in development and cell cycle control.

    Full spectrum flow cytometry reveals mesenchymal heterogeneity in first trimester placentae and phenotypic convergence in culture, providing insight into the origins of placental mesenchymal stromal cells

    Anna Leabourn Boss et al.
    Full spectrum flow cytometry reveals a high degree of placental mesenchymal cell heterogeneity, which is lost with culture, highlighting the importance of detailed ex vivo phenotyping to optimise the use of these cells in downstream applications.

    Three-dimensional structure of kinetochore-fibers in human mitotic spindles

    Robert Kiewisz et al.
    Comprehensive 3D electron tomography reconstructions of metaphase spindles in human tissue culture cells reveal that kinetochore-fibers broaden as they extend polewards, forming semi-direct connections to the pole, where they preferentially interact with the spindle network.

    Lactate receptor HCAR1 regulates neurogenesis and microglia activation after neonatal hypoxia-ischemia

    Lauritz Kennedy et al.
    HCAR1 knockout mice are unable to initiate brain tissue repair after a hypoxic-ischemic injury.

    Banp regulates DNA damage response and chromosome segregation during the cell cycle in zebrafish retina

    Swathy Babu et al.
    Banp is a transcription activator of cell cycle genes like cenpt, ncapg, and wrnip1 to prevent genotoxic stress during rapid cell division and its repercussions on development and disease.

    Isoform-specific mutation in Dystonin-b gene causes late-onset protein aggregate myopathy and cardiomyopathy

    Nozomu Yoshioka et al.
    Dystonin-b-specific mutant mice exhibit late-onset myopathy and cardiomyopathy.

    Septin7 is indispensable for proper skeletal muscle architecture and function

    Mónika Gönczi et al.
    Septin7 is described as a novel component of skeletal muscle cytoskeleton with essential roles in muscle development and the proper organization of the myofilaments and the mitochondrial network while its absence leeds to reduced force and skeletal deformities.
