    Offline impact of transcranial focused ultrasound on cortical activation in primates

    Lennart Verhagen et al.
    A new application of transcranial ultrasound safely modulates brain activation in primates for up to 2 hours after 40 seconds of stimulation.

    Fish-hunting cone snail venoms are a rich source of minimized ligands of the vertebrate insulin receptor

    Peter Ahorukomeye et al.
    The unique modus operandi of cone snail venom insulins provides new insight into insulin receptor activation and informs on the design of insulin analogs for the treatment of diabetes.

    Three F-actin assembly centers regulate organelle inheritance, cell-cell communication and motility in Toxoplasma gondii

    Nicolò Tosetti et al.
    Toxoplasma gondii formins have several non-overlapping roles including generating an apico-basal flux of F-actin that is controlled by phosphorylation and methylation and is essential for motility.

    Individuals physically interacting in a group rapidly coordinate their movement by estimating the collective goal

    Atsushi Takagi et al.
    A computational model of collective physical interaction reveals that individuals infer the collective's movement goal in order to enhance the group's overall performance and coordinate with several partners in seconds.

    Emergence of trait variability through the lens of nitrogen assimilation in Prochlorococcus

    Paul M Berube et al.
    In the context of an organism's ecology, physiology, and macroevolutionary history, inheritance and gene loss can yield emergent patterns of trait variability that give the appearance of gene acquisition.

    Hexameric helicase G40P unwinds DNA in single base pair steps

    Michael Schlierf et al.
    Single-molecule FRET experiments reveal that G40P, a DnaB-like helicase, unwinds double-stranded DNA in single base pair steps and its processivity is enhanced by host primase DnaG.

    TIAM-1/GEF can shape somatosensory dendrites independently of its GEF activity by regulating F-actin localization

    Leo TH Tang et al.
    The DMA-1/LRR-TM cell surface receptor signals through partially redundant pathways to cell-autonomously pattern dendrites, including by directly forming a complex with both the TIAM-1/GEF and ACT-4/Actin.
