    A single regulator NrtR controls bacterial NAD+ homeostasis via its acetylation

    Rongsui Gao et al.
    Functional definition of NrtR and the discovery of its acetylation represents a first paradigm for linking protein acetylation to bacterial central NAD+ metabolism.

    Ctf4 organizes sister replisomes and Pol α into a replication factory

    Zuanning Yuan et al.
    Eukaryotic replisomes are strongly connected together to replicate both sister DNAs produced from a bidirectional origin.

    Plasticity of cell migration resulting from mechanochemical coupling

    Yuansheng Cao et al.
    Computational and experimental studies show that different migration modes of eukaryotic cells are the result of the interplay between signaling waves and cell mechanics.

    A bidirectional network for appetite control in larval zebrafish

    Caroline Lei Wee et al.
    Brain imaging and behavioral analysis reveal two opposing states of hunger, represented by anti-correlated lateral and caudal hypothalamic dynamics that are important for the homeostatic control of feeding in zebrafish.

    Monosynaptic tracing maps brain-wide afferent oligodendrocyte precursor cell connectivity

    Christopher W Mount et al.
    Oligodendrocyte precursor cells receive brain-wide, circuit-specific intracortical, coritcocortical and thalamocortical synaptic inputs.

    Endothelial PKA activity regulates angiogenesis by limiting autophagy through phosphorylation of ATG16L1

    Xiaocheng Zhao et al.
    The cAMP-dependent protein kinase A controls the switch from actively sprouting new blood vessel formation to vessel quiescence by reducing endothelial autophagy through phosphorylation-mediated destabilisation of ATG16L1.
