    Pathogen clonal expansion underlies multiorgan dissemination and organ-specific outcomes during murine systemic infection

    Karthik Hullahalli, Matthew K Waldor
    During Escherichia coli systemic infection, the replication of a minuscule fraction of the inoculum drives organ-specific clearance failures, systemic dissemination, and stochastic infection outcomes.

    Learning differentially shapes prefrontal and hippocampal activity during classical conditioning

    Jan L Klee et al.
    CA1 and PFC bridge the temporal gap between cue and reward delivery during trace conditioning according to different underlying coding principles and task-related activity is reactivated during awake Sharp-Wave Ripples.

    mRNA vaccine-induced T cells respond identically to SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern but differ in longevity and homing properties depending on prior infection status

    Jason Neidleman et al.
    COVID-19 mRNA vaccine-elicited T cells recognize variants of concern and phenotypically differ depending on number of vaccine doses and prior SARS-CoV-2 infection status.

    Impaired mRNA splicing and proteostasis in preadipocytes in obesity-related metabolic disease

    Julia Sánchez-Ceinos et al.
    Alternative splicing and the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-associated protein degradation (ERAD) system represent essential, fat depot-specific components of the adipogenesis that are altered in preadipocytes from obese individuals with metabolic disease.

    The Lon protease temporally restricts polar cell differentiation events during the Caulobacter cell cycle

    Deike J Omnus et al.
    A proteomics-based approach identifies novel substrate proteins of the Lon protease in Caulobacter crescentus and reveals a critical role of Lon in regulating flagella assembly and stalk biogenesis during the cell cycle.

    Effect of SARS-CoV-2 proteins on vascular permeability

    Rossana Rauti et al.
    A specific SARS-CoV-2 proteins that affect the vascular permeability and impairs the functionality of other significant organs has been identified.

    Stimulation of hypothalamic oxytocin neurons suppresses colorectal cancer progression in mice

    Susu Pan et al.
    Assessments using chemogenetic and pharmacological approaches reveal that modulation of the activities of oxytocin neurons in the hypothalamus of the central nervous system could inhibit colorectal cancer progression in mice.

    Little evidence that Eurasian jays protect their caches by responding to cues about a conspecific’s desire and visual perspective

    Piero Amodio et al.
    Across five experiments, Eurasian jays’ caching behaviour provides little evidence of the ability to integrate cues about a potential pilferer’s visual perspective and desire and, challenging previous findings, to respond to either of the two social cues independently.
