- Helios expression coordinates the development of a subset of striatopallidal medium spiny neurons
Summary: The transcription factor Helios regulates G1-S transition to promote neuronal differentiation of a striatopallidal neuronal subpopulation involved in motor skill acquisition.
- Mechanical stress mediated by both endosperm softening and embryo growth underlies endosperm elimination in Arabidopsis seeds
Summary: Elimination of the Arabidopsis endosperm during seed development involves a developmental programmed cell death process requiring cell wall modifications and mechanical stresses imposed by embryo growth.
- Live and let die: a REM complex promotes fertilization through synergid cell death in Arabidopsis
Summary: In the female gametophyte, the synergid cell is required to attract the pollen tube, and then degenerates. Its death, and pollen tube bursting, is controlled by the VDD and VAL transcription factors.
- Semaphorin 3A is a retrograde cell death signal in developing sympathetic neurons
Summary: A Sema3A-initiated apoptotic signaling complex regulates the apoptosis of sympathetic neurons during their period of naturally occurring cell death.
- Jag1b is essential for patterning inner ear sensory cristae by regulating anterior morphogenetic tissue separation and preventing posterior cell death
Summary: Jag1b differentially regulates FGF signaling, cell death and cell differentiation during the patterning of anterior and posterior cristae in the zebrafish inner ear.
