    Epithelial geometry regulates spindle orientation and progenitor fate during formation of the mammalian epidermis

    Kimberly Box et al.
    Early in mammalian epidermal development, basal epidermal progenitor cells utilize packing and three-dimensional geometry, rather than cortical polarity cues, to inform division orientation and progenitor cell fate.

    Nuclear receptor NR4A is required for patterning at the ends of the planarian anterior-posterior axis

    Dayan J Li et al.
    NR4A is a broadly conserved transcription factor that is required for concordance of patterning information and anatomy at both ends of the planarian anterior-posterior axis.

    Stem cell topography splits growth and homeostatic functions in the fish gill

    Julian Stolper et al.
    The fish gill, an ever-growing organ with fast turnover rate, displays dedicated stem-cell populations for growth and homeostasis that are interchangeable upon external challenges.

    Chemical modulation of transcriptionally enriched signaling pathways to optimize the conversion of fibroblasts into neurons

    Joseph Herdy et al.
    An unbiased RNAseq based strategy to identify targetable pathways and a streamlined lentiviral system provide a state of the art advance on direct fibroblast to neuron conversion.

    A 3D culture model of innervated human skeletal muscle enables studies of the adult neuromuscular junction

    Mohsen Afshar Bakooshli et al.
    Human skeletal muscle progenitors and motor neurons self-organize in three-dimensional co-culture to form functional neuromuscular junctions that developmentally mature from the embryonic to the adult state.

    Myonuclear accretion is a determinant of exercise-induced remodeling in skeletal muscle

    Qingnian Goh et al.
    Fusion of muscle progenitors drives continuous myonuclear accretion during exercise and impacts various adaptations in skeletal muscle including response to injury and hypertrophy.

    Sox9+ messenger cells orchestrate large-scale skeletal regeneration in the mammalian rib

    Stephanie T Kuwahara et al.
    Large-scale skeletal regeneration requires Hh signaling in Sox9+ lineage cells to coordinate callus formation and bone repair.
