    Pathogenic LRRK2 control of primary cilia and Hedgehog signaling in neurons and astrocytes of mouse brain

    Shahzad S Khan et al.
    Striatal cholinergic interneurons and astrocytes lose cilia and show dysregulation of Hedgehog signaling in mice with a Parkinson's disease-associated, G2019S LRRK2 mutation or upon loss of PPM1H phosphatase specific for LRRK2-phosphorylated Rab GTPases.

    A MET-PTPRK kinase-phosphatase rheostat controls ZNRF3 and Wnt signaling

    Minseong Kim et al.
    HGF-MET signaling phosphorylates- and PTPRK dephosphorylates ZNRF3 to regulate ZNRF3 internalization, functioning as a rheostat for Wnt signaling.

    SARS-CoV-2 shedding dynamics across the respiratory tract, sex, and disease severity for adult and pediatric COVID-19

    Paul Z Chen et al.
    COVID-19 severity, rather than sex or age, predicts SARS-CoV-2 kinetics, and SARS-CoV-2 viral load from lower respiratory tract specimens may predict severe disease days before clinical deterioration for COVID-19 patients.

    microRNA-mediated regulation of microRNA machinery controls cell fate decisions

    Qiuying Liu et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analyses reveal that two stem-cell-specific microRNAs control stem cell fate decisions between pluripotency and differentiation through repressing Ago2, a key component of the microRNA machinery.

    Telomere length is associated with growth in children in rural Bangladesh

    Audrie Lin et al.
    In a rural, low-income setting in Bangladesh, early-life telomere length was associated with concurrent growth.

    Structural characterization of NrnC identifies unifying features of dinucleotidases

    Justin D Lormand et al.
    Dinucleotidases, specialized enzymes that catalyze the final step in RNA degradation, have evolved independently and repeatedly to fulfill essential roles in cell growth.

    Whole-organism 3D quantitative characterization of zebrafish melanin by silver deposition micro-CT

    Spencer R Katz et al.
    Melanin staining for micro-CT imaging, using a novel application of ionic silver deposition, enables qualitative and quantitative 3D analysis of zebrafish pigmentation and reveals subtle phenotypes missed by light microscopy.

    Neuronal regulated ire-1-dependent mRNA decay controls germline differentiation in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Mor Levi-Ferber et al.
    Neuronal circuits can be disrupted by ire-1-dependent mRNA decay to affect germline tumor cell identity by regulating cross-tissue communication in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    The roles of history, chance, and natural selection in the evolution of antibiotic resistance

    Alfonso Santos-Lopez et al.
    Selection imposed by antibiotics may dominate evolutionary forces acting on opportunistic pathogens like Acinetobacter baumannii, yet chance effects and a prior history in biofilm may constrain resistance and impose collateral sensitivities.
