    RAL GTPases mediate EGFR-driven intestinal stem cell proliferation and tumourigenesis

    Máté Nászai et al.
    Combined genetic experiments and cellular trafficking assays in Drosophila and mammalian models uncover a new role of RAS-like GTPases in EGFR signalling activation during tissue regeneration and tumourigenesis through regulation of EGFR internalisation.

    SIRT1 regulates sphingolipid metabolism and neural differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells through c-Myc-SMPDL3B

    Wei Fan et al.
    SIRT1, a cellular metabolic sensor, transcriptionally promotes sphingomyelin degradation in embryonic stem cells, which in turn modulates their membrane fluidity and neural differentiation.

    Wnt- and glutamate-receptors orchestrate stem cell dynamics and asymmetric cell division

    Sergi Junyent et al.
    Receptors for two distinct pathways are linked to choreograph the dynamic interaction of Wnt on the stem cell membrane, which leads to the control of asymmetric cell division.

    The critical role of Hedgehog-responsive mesenchymal progenitors in meniscus development and injury repair

    Yulong Wei et al.
    Meniscal Gli1+ cells are mesenchymal progenitors that contribute to the development and injury repair of meniscus.

    HSPCs display within-family homogeneity in differentiation and proliferation despite population heterogeneity

    Tamar Tak et al.
    Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells are heterogeneous on a population level, while cells derived from a common ancestor have similar division and differentiation patterns, indicating priming towards a certain differentiation/division fate.

    Onset of taste bud cell renewal starts at birth and coincides with a shift in SHH function

    Erin J Golden et al.
    Taste cell renewal begins at birth and is promoted by sonic hedgehog that alters the expression of regulators of cell migration and adhesion that may allow entry of new cells into buds.

    Non-canonical Hedgehog signaling regulates spinal cord and muscle regeneration in Xenopus laevis larvae

    Andrew M Hamilton et al.
    Unlike in early embryonic development, injured spinal cord and muscle in Xenopus laevis larvae recruit non-canonical Hedgehog signaling essential for their regeneration, while repressing Gli transcriptional activity.

    The biphasic and age-dependent impact of klotho on hallmarks of aging and skeletal muscle function

    Zachary Clemens et al.
    Transcriptomic analysis using a novel information-based network entropy approach provides mechanistic insights into the ability of Klotho to successfully ameliorate age-related sarcopenia in old mice, but not oldest-old mice.

    The LINC complex transmits integrin-dependent tension to the nuclear lamina and represses epidermal differentiation

    Emma Carley et al.
    Forces stemming from cell-matrix adhesions, but not cell-cell adhesions, are directly transmitted to the nuclear lamina to regulate epidermal cell fate.

    Generic injuries are sufficient to induce ectopic Wnt organizers in Hydra

    Jack F Cazet et al.
    Injuries activate the oral identity-specifying canonical Wnt signaling pathway in Hydra, which can trigger head regeneration in permissive tissue contexts created by the absence of pre-existing organizers.
