    BMP7 functions predominantly as a heterodimer with BMP2 or BMP4 during mammalian embryogenesis

    Hyung-Seok Kim et al.
    Endogenous BMP2/7 and BMP4/7 heterodimers form in vivo, and are the predominant functional ligand in many, if not all, tissues of developing mouse embryos.

    Myogenic vasoconstriction requires G12/G13 and LARG to maintain local and systemic vascular resistance

    Ramesh Chennupati et al.
    Genetic mouse models identify a critical mechanism of myogenic vasoconstriction and reveal the in vivo function of myogenic autoregulation in protecting from organ overperfusion and in maintaining vascular resistance.

    NHR-14 loss of function couples intestinal iron uptake with innate immunity in C. elegans through PQM-1 signaling

    Malini Rajan et al.
    Nuclear receptor NHR-14 regulates the subcellular localization of the zinc transcription factor PQM-1 to coordinate innate immunity with iron sequestration during pathogen infection in C. elegans..
