A MYB-like gene, MSE1, located on the Y chromosome and mutated on the X, acts in sex determination by inducing male-specific anther development in Asparagus officinalis.
- Structural and functional analysis of cyclophilin PpiB mutants supports an in vivo function not limited to prolyl isomerization activity
Aggeliki Skagia, Eleni Vezyri, Markezina Sigala, Areti Kokkinou, Michael Karpusas, Anastasia Venieraki, Panagiotis Katinakis and Maria Dimou
Version of Record online: 21 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/gtc.12452
Combination of enzymatic studies concerning the prolyl isomerase and chaperone activities of various PpiB cyclophilin mutants with structural analyses based on 3D models shows that various structural features, apart from the catalytic pocket, appear to be important for its inhibitory role in motility and biofilm formation.
- Nutrient-dependent increased dendritic arborization of somatosensory neurons
Kaori Watanabe, Yuki Furumizo, Tadao Usui, Yukako Hattori and Tadashi Uemura

Dendritic arbors of Class IV neurons became more complicated when larvae were reared on a low-yeast diet (Fig. 1D). To our knowledge, this is the first finding that dendrite arborization of neurons depends on nutritional status.
- Oligomerization of Hmo1 mediated by box A is essential for DNA binding in vitro and in vivo (pages 1333–1352)
Koji Kasahara, Ayako Higashino, Satoru Unzai, Hirofumi Yoshikawa and Tetsuro Kokubo
Version of Record online: 15 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/gtc.12449
Hmo1 includes two HMG-like motifs, box A and box B, both of which are essential for DNA binding of Hmo1. While box B is a bona fide DNA-binding motif, box A mediates self-assembly of Hmo1, thereby synergistically promoting DNA binding of Hmo1 to the target genes in vivo.
- Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor ensures the elongation of axons and dendrites in the mouse frontal cortex (pages 1365–1379)
Koji Ohba, Kazuhisa Takeda, Tamio Furuse, Tomohiro Suzuki, Shigeharu Wakana, Takashi Suzuki, Hiroaki Yamamoto and Shigeki Shibahara
Version of Record online: 11 NOV 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/gtc.12450
Mitf may ensure the elongation of axons and dendrites by maintaining creatine synthesis in the mouse frontal cortex.
