Dynamic transcriptome profiles within spermatogonial and spermatocyte populations during postnatal testis maturation revealed by single-cell sequencing

Using a combination of comprehensive germ cell sampling with single-cell-mRNA-sequencing, Grive et al generate a reference dataset of germ cell gene expression. The authors show that discrete developmental stages of spermatogenesis possess significant differences in the transcriptional profiles from neonates compared to juveniles and adults.

Deletion of Cdkn1b in ACI rats leads to increased proliferation and pregnancy-associated changes in the mammary gland due to perturbed systemic endocrine environment

Here, Ding, Shunkwiler et al describe that deletion of the Cdkn1b gene, encoding the p27 cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor in the estrogen-induced mammary tumor-susceptible ACI rat strain, leads to a decrease in the relative frequencies of Cd49b+ mammary luminal epithelial progenitors and pregnancy-related differentiation.

Assembly of a heptameric STRIPAK complex is required for coordination of light-dependent multicellular fungal development with secondary metabolism in Aspergillus nidulans

Eukaryotic striatin forms striatin-interacting phosphatase and kinase (STRIPAK) complexes that control many cellular processes, however, they remain poorly understood. Here, Elramli, Karahoda et al discover six striatin (StrA) interacting proteins (Sips) which form a heptameric complex in the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans.

Rewired cellular signaling coordinates sugar and hypoxic responses for anaerobic xylose fermentation in yeast

In this study, Myers et al use comparative systems biology across strains of yeast with progressive improvements in xylose utilization to understand the metabolic and regulatory logic of anaerobic xylose fermentation, and find that mutations in evolved strains trigger signaling pathways that are normally antagonistic.

Collateral damage and CRISPR genome editing

Mark Thomas and colleagues discuss recent findings on unwanted collateral damage caused by CRISPR-Cas systems and describe best-practice to reduce the risk of unwanted CRISPR damage when using these systems.

Opinion Piece

Outside in

Front Section Editor Jonathan Flint introduces our new article type, Opinion Pieces, with a piece discussing the merits of using an "outside-in" approach to identify the biological mechanisms underlying behaviour.
