    Active presynaptic ribosomes in the mammalian brain, and altered transmitter release after protein synthesis inhibition

    Matthew S Scarnati et al.
    Local presynaptic protein synthesis occurring at established nerve terminals in the mammalian brain provides a mechanism for rapidly controlling or restoring presynaptic proteins that affect neurotransmitter release and presynaptic efficiency.

    Crystal structures of DNA polymerase I capture novel intermediates in the DNA synthesis pathway

    Nicholas Chim et al.
    Insight into the mechanism of DNA synthesis is provided by the crystal structures of DNA polymerase intermediates.

    Fast-backward replay of sequentially memorized items in humans

    Qiaoli Huang et al.
    Serially remembered items are successively reactivated during memory maintenance in the human brain, and replay profiles, temporally compressed and reverse in order, are associated with recency effect in behavioral performance.

    Chromatin accessibility dynamics across C. elegans development and ageing

    Jürgen Jänes et al.
    Profiling chromatin accessibility and nuclear transcription across Caenorhabditis elegans development and ageing generated the first map of transcriptional regulatory elements and their activities across an animal's life.

    Maturing Mycobacterium smegmatis peptidoglycan requires non-canonical crosslinks to maintain shape

    Catherine Baranowski et al.
    Polar elongating mycobacteria (Mycobacterium smegmatis) require specific cell wall chemistries, those catalyzed by targets of critical antibiotics, to maintain rod shape at aging sites of the bacillus.

    Cerebellar learning using perturbations

    Guy Bouvier et al.
    A proposal for a complete cellular/network implementation of trial-and-error motor learning in the olivo-cerebellar system.

    Global warming reduces leaf-out and flowering synchrony among individuals

    Constantin M Zohner et al.
    Individuals differ in how their leaf-out and flowering are regulated by abiotic stimuli and, under climate warming, this leads to reduced within-population phenological synchrony, impacting mutualistic and antagonistic community interactions.

    Structures of translationally inactive mammalian ribosomes

    Alan Brown et al.
    Mining electron cryomicroscopy data reveals new ribosomal interactions that preclude translation to potentially regulate gene expression.
