    The biphasic and age-dependent impact of klotho on hallmarks of aging and skeletal muscle function

    Zachary Clemens et al.
    Transcriptomic analysis using a novel information-based network entropy approach provides mechanistic insights into the ability of Klotho to successfully ameliorate age-related sarcopenia in old mice, but not oldest-old mice.

    Selection for increased tibia length in mice alters skull shape through parallel changes in developmental mechanisms

    Colton M Unger et al.
    Artificial selection for increased tibia length in mice made their skulls longer, narrower, and flatter, suggesting that even distant skeletal regions can evolve as correlated responses to selection acting locally.

    UBTD1 regulates ceramide balance and endolysosomal positioning to coordinate EGFR signaling

    Stéphanie Torrino et al.
    UBTD1 coordinates EGFR signaling by modulating ceramides level through ASAH1 ubiquitination and EGFR degradation through SQSTM1/p62 ubiquitination, which together impact cell proliferation.

    Insights from a Pan India Sero-Epidemiological survey (Phenome-India Cohort) for SARS-CoV2

    Salwa Naushin et al.
    Widespread asymptomatic SARS-CoV2 infection affected nearly 100 million Indians by September 2020 with a subsequent decline in new cases, which may be attributable to increased population immunity, albeit seeing reduced neutralization activity at 6 months this respite may be temporary.

    Propensity for somatic expansion increases over the course of life in Huntington disease

    Radhia Kacher et al.
    Somatic instability of the CAG repeat increases progressively with age and disease progression in Huntington disease mutation carriers, starting with low levels in fetal brain tissues.

    Permeabilization-free en bloc immunohistochemistry for correlative microscopy

    Kara A Fulton, Kevin L Briggman
    Immunohistochemical labeling of antigens deep within mouse brain tissue sections was achieved without the need for lipid permeabilization, thereby preserving tissue ultrastructure and enabling correlative light and electron microscopy studies.
