eLife Science Digests
Cutting jargon and putting research in context,
showcase some of the latest articles published in eLife.
Vascularizing the brain (organoids)
Integrating blood vessels into brain organoids grown in the lab leads to a better recapitulation of brain development.
Untangling sleep spindles
Rhythmic brain waves called ‘sleep spindles’ important for learning and memory occur in more complex patterns than previously thought.
New research sheds light on the mechanisms responsible for the emergence of
Staying in shape
A protein called CAMSAP2 helps form and stabilize the microtubules that give cells their shape in highly polarized cells lacking γ-TuRC, the complex that normally performs these roles.
Recognizing a gap in cancer screening programmes
A woman-centric approach to cervical cancer and bowel cancer screening may encourage more women aged 50–64 to receive these screens.
Antibiotic resistance evolved decades ago in bacteria infecting European livestock and persists when the bacteria jump to humans.
Growing microtubules, losing brain folds
Mutations in tubulin proteins that stabilize structures called microtubules alter how brain cells move, leading to severe malformations that affect the development of ridges and folds in the brain.
Building the nervous system
allows nerve cells and their supporting cells to develop normally by balancing the level of inflammation in zebrafish embryos.
