    β-catenin and γ-catenin are dispensable for T lymphocytes and AML leukemic stem cells

    Xin Zhao et al.
    The generation and characterization of true β-catenin null mutant mice conclusively demonstrate that β-catenin is dispensable for T lymphocytes and leukemia stem cells, providing clarifications on a long-standing controversy.
    1. Evolutionary Biology

    Behavioural diversity of bonobo prey preference as a potential cultural trait

    Liran Samuni et al.
    Bonobo groups that share overlapping ranging areas and engage in regular social exchange show "behavioural group identity" of hunting techniques in the absence of local ecological variation.

    Early analysis of the Australian COVID-19 epidemic

    David J Price et al.
    An analysis of Australian case data demonstrates how the combined strategy of border measures, case targeted interventions, and social distancing effectively contained the first epidemic wave of COVID-19.

    Irisin directly stimulates osteoclastogenesis and bone resorption in vitro and in vivo

    Eben G Estell et al.
    The regulation of bone homeostasis by the exercise-induced myokine irisin is in part potentiated by a direct action on osteoclast differentiation and resorption.
    1. Neuroscience

    Rapid stimulus-driven modulation of slow ocular position drifts

    Tatiana Malevich et al.
    Slow, continuous changes in eye position when gaze is fixed, previously believed to be random drifts, are shown to exhibit highly systematic and short-latency response characteristics to visual stimuli.

    Par protein localization during the early development of Mnemiopsis leidyi suggests different modes of epithelial organization in the metazoa

    Miguel Salinas-Saavedra, Mark Q Martindale
    Even though the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi develops polarized epithelial tissues, polarization is not mediated by the conserved mechanisms polarizing bilaterian and cnidarian epithelial cells.

    Stem cell regionalization during olfactory bulb neurogenesis depends on regulatory interactions between Vax1 and Pax6

    Nathalie Coré et al.
    Vax1 suppresses dopaminergic neuron phenotype by inhibiting Pax6 expression in the subventricular zone of the lateral ventricle and is necessary to generate Calbindin interneurons for the postnatal olfactory bulb.

    TBX3 acts as tissue-specific component of the Wnt/β-catenin transcriptional complex

    Dario Zimmerli et al.
    The developmental transcription factor TBX3 co-operates with β-catenin co-factors to operate tissue-specific transcriptional outputs, during forelimb development and colorectal cancer progression.

    A large effective population size for established within-host influenza virus infection

    Casper K Lumby et al.
    Once an influenza infection is established, selection acts efficiently in favouring fitter viral genotypes, its effects being limited only by the short length of a typical infection.

    MARCH8 inhibits viral infection by two different mechanisms

    Yanzhao Zhang et al.
    The host transmembrane protein MARCH8, previously known as an expression regulator of host proteins, is a powerful antiviral host factor with a potentially broad antiviral spectrum through two different mechanisms.
