New pre-print in bioRxiv (Jan 2024!)

When salinity and pH levels of the medium are low, ionocyte progenitors invade lateral line sensory organs, where they help with mechanosensory hair cell function. Julia Peloggia, our predoc, explored how these environmental changes trigger signaling pathways and orchestrate this physiological adaptation.
