Development of a cypovirus protein microcrystal-encapsulated Bacillus thuringiensis UV-tolerant and mosquitocidal δ-endotoxin
Summary:Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis delta-endotoxin activity domain-encapsulated polyhedra could be a proteinaceous pesticide applicable for mosquito control under outdoor conditions.
Summary: In this paper, we show that ectopic sources of FGF-10 induce epithelial buckling and initiate the formation of new branches in cultured embryonic lungs.
Autism-associated CHD8 keeps proliferation of human neural progenitors in check by lengthening the G1 phase of the cell cycle
Summary: Neuronal precursor cells with genetic deletion of one copy of autism-associated CHD8 show marked decrease in duration of the G1 phase of the cell cycle.
Drosophila CRISPR/Cas9 mutants as tools to analyse cardiac filamin function and pathogenicity of human FLNC variants
Summary: CRISPR mutants of Drosophila filamin, shown here to be required for adult cardiac function and sarcomeric integrity, revealed that the C-term region is dispensable and opens ways to study human variants.
Hepatic leukemia factor-expressing paraxial mesoderm cells contribute to the developing brain vasculature
Summary: Genetic lineage tracing reveals that a transient expression of hepatic leukemia factor (Hlf) marks angiogenic cephalic paraxial mesenchyme, which mainly contributes to the developing brain vasculature.
Summary: In human rhabdomyosarcoma cells, EV71 uncoating takes place in mature late endosomes and relies on CD-M6PR.
HepT1-derived murine models of high-risk hepatoblastoma display vascular invasion, metastasis, and circulating tumor cells
Summary: In this work, we developed and thoroughly characterized several unique models of hepatoblastoma derived from the HepT1 cell line that show high-risk features.
Suction feeding of West African lungfish (Protopterus annectens): An XROMM analysis of jaw mechanics, cranial kinesis, and hyoid mobility
Summary: Three-dimensional hyoid movements and clavicle retraction generate suction during the relatively slow, but successful, feeding strikes of the West African lungfish (Protopterus annectens).
