    Comment on ‘Orthogonal lipid sensors identify transbilayer asymmetry of plasma membrane cholesterol’

    Kevin C Courtney et al.
    We challenge a recent report that most of the cholesterol in the plasma membrane of mammalian cells is in the exofacial leaflet.

    Comment on ‘YcgC represents a new protein deacetylase family in prokaryotes’

    Magdalena Kremer et al.
    We applied a combined synthetic biological, biochemical and mass-spectrometric approach to show that YcgC is not a member of a novel lysine deacetylase class in prokaryotes.

    Comment on "Magnetosensitive neurons mediate geomagnetic orientation in Caenorhabditis elegans"

    Lukas Landler et al.
    Employing blinded controlled methodology we find no evidence for a magnetic sense in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Response to comment on "Magnetosensitive neurons mediate geomagnetic orientation in Caenorhabditis elegans"

    Andres Vidal-Gadea et al.
    A reanalysis of data from a challenge by Landler et al. (2018) and our Vidal-Gadea et al. (2015) study reinforce our original finding that C. elegans is a suitable model system to study magnetoreception.
