    Aberrant calcium channel splicing drives defects in cortical differentiation in Timothy syndrome

    Georgia Panagiotakos et al.
    The Timothy syndrome mutation in Cav1.2 gives rise to defects in neuronal differentiation by preventing a developmental switch in channel splicing and elevating calcium signaling in differentiating cells.

    Midkine is a dual regulator of wound epidermis development and inflammation during the initiation of limb regeneration

    Stephanie L Tsai et al.
    Elucidation of the molecular basis of early wound epidermis dependence during salamander limb regeneration reveals midkine as a key modulator of wound epidermis development and wound-healing resolution.

    The follicle epithelium in the Drosophila ovary is maintained by a small number of stem cells

    Jocelyne Fadiga, Todd G Nystul
    Just 2-4 follicle stem cells maintain each follicle epithelium in the Drosophila ovary, and they reside within a single ring at the anterior edge of the tissue.

    Persistent epigenetic memory impedes rescue of the telomeric phenotype in human ICF iPSCs following DNMT3B correction

    Shir Toubiana et al.
    Correction of the DNA methyltransferase 3B gene in ICF1 syndrome fails to rescue the abnormal DNA hypomethylation at subtelomeric regions due to accompanied epigenetic abnormalities in these regions.

    Late developing cardiac lymphatic vasculature supports adult zebrafish heart function and regeneration

    Michael RM Harrison et al.
    Zebrafish develop cardiac lymphatic vessels along coronary arteries and this vasculature supports scar reduction following severe damage to the myocardium.

    Screening identifies small molecules that enhance the maturation of human pluripotent stem cell-derived myotubes

    Sridhar Selvaraj et al.
    Treatment of human pluripotent stem cell-derived myotubes with a cocktail of small molecules induces their maturation, as shown by gene expression, biochemical and functional assays.

    Regeneration: Lymphatic vessels help mend broken hearts

    Catherine Pfefferli, Anna Jaźwińska
    Experiments on zebrafish show that the regeneration of the heart after an injury depends on lymphatic vessels.
