    The IRE1/XBP1 signaling axis promotes skeletal muscle regeneration through a cell non-autonomous mechanism

    Anirban Roy et al.
    The IRE1/XBP1 signaling in myofibers is essential for robust skeletal muscle regeneration in response to injury.

    Human Erbb2-induced Erk activity robustly stimulates cycling and functional remodeling of rat and human cardiomyocytes

    Nicholas Strash et al.
    Comparative analysis of cardiac mitogenic pathways identified a potent human gene that is effective at driving in vitro cell cycle activation across species and cell culture systems.

    Adult stem cells and niche cells segregate gradually from common precursors that build the adult Drosophila ovary during pupal development

    Amy Reilein et al.
    Somatic stem and niche cells in the Drosophila ovary develop from common precursors through regulated proliferative expansion, followed by acquisition of position-specific behaviors, rather than through rigid early specification events.

    Retinoic acid signaling is directly activated in cardiomyocytes and protects mouse hearts from apoptosis after myocardial infarction

    Fabio Da Silva et al.
    Lineage tracing and genetic experiments resolve a long-standing controversy by showing that retinoic acid signaling is active in cardiomyocytes, both during development and after myocardial infarction, and protects damaged hearts from apoptosis.

    Multiscale analysis reveals that diet-dependent midgut plasticity emerges from alterations in both stem cell niche coupling and enterocyte size

    Alessandro Bonfini et al.
    The nutrient composition of food alters both the size of gut epithelial cells and the ability of the stem cell niche to control tissue turnover, resulting in changes in size at the organ level.

    Filopodia powered by class x myosin promote fusion of mammalian myoblasts

    David W Hammers et al.
    Filopodia driven by class X myosin promote the fusion of mammalian myoblasts in the development of skeletal muscle and are important for the regeneration of skeletal muscle following muscle injury.
