    An actin-related protein that is most highly expressed in Drosophila testes is critical for embryonic development

    Courtney M Schroeder et al.
    Non-canonical ‘testis-specific’ actin-related protein (Arp), Arp53D, is critical for early embryonic development in Drosophila, revealing important roles for lineage-specific, divergent, testis-expressed non-canonical Arps outside the male germline in animals.

    Ct threshold values, a proxy for viral load in community SARS-CoV-2 cases, demonstrate wide variation across populations and over time

    A Sarah Walker et al.
    Wide variation in cycle threshold (Ct) values from SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR tests over calendar time offers the potential for their broader use in public testing programmes as an ‘early-warning’ system for shifts in infectious load and hence transmission.

    A novel mechanosensitive channel controls osmoregulation, differentiation, and infectivity in Trypanosoma cruzi

    Noopur Dave et al.
    Structurally divergent bacterial-like mechanosensitive channels control multiple cellular functions in protozoan parasites.

    Crash landing of Vibrio cholerae by MSHA pili-assisted braking and anchoring in a viscoelastic environment

    Wenchao Zhang et al.

    Identical sequences found in distant genomes reveal frequent horizontal transfer across the bacterial domain

    Michael Sheinman et al.
    Horizontal gene transfer between distantly related bacterial species is frequent and widespread and can be efficiently identified using alignment-free methods.

    Structure and mechanistic features of the prokaryotic minimal RNase P

    Rebecca Feyh et al.
    The novel cryo-electron microscopy structure of a bacterial protein-only RNase P illustrates how a small protein oligomerizes into a dodecameric assembly to catalyze the 5’-end maturation of tRNAs.

    Genetic and pharmacological evidence for kinetic competition between alternative poly(A) sites in yeast

    Rachael Emily Turner et al.
    The natural compounds cordycepin and mycophenolic acid stimulate alternative polyadenylation through opposing effects on transcriptional rate.

    A signal capture and proofreading mechanism for the KDEL-receptor explains selectivity and dynamic range in ER retrieval

    Andreas Gerondopoulos et al.
    KDEL receptor structures with variant HDEL and RDEL signals help decode the cell biological mechanism for the selective retrieval of escaped endoplasmic reticulum luminal proteins.

    Major genetic discontinuity and novel toxigenic species in Clostridioides difficile taxonomy

    Daniel R Knight et al.
    The Clostridioides difficile taxonomy is characterised by major taxonomic incoherence and clear species boundaries.

    Occurrence of foamy macrophages during the innate response of zebrafish to trypanosome infections

    Sem H Jacobs et al.
    Transparent zebrafish, reveal the occurrence of foamy macrophages during an extracellular trypanosome infection and their association with an exacerbated inflammatory response.
