    Episode 13: July 2014

    In this episode we hear about using photographs to diagnose rare genetic disorders, an unexpected benefit of exercise, hybridizing fish species, Rett syndrome, and using gene drives to eradicate disease.
  2. Early-career researcher webinars from eLife

    #ECRWednesday webinars

    Curated by Emma Pewsey et al.
    On the last Wednesday of each month, members of the eLife Early-Career Advisory Group invite experts to share their views and advice on subjects pertinent to research careers.
    1. Ecology

    A SLC4 family bicarbonate transporter is critical for intracellular pH regulation and biomineralization in sea urchin embryos

    Marian Y Hu et al.
    Cellular carbon accumulation systems are a fundamental prerequisite for biomineralization to stabilize pH and to supply inorganic carbon for CaCO3 precipitation under changing environmental conditions.
    1. Neuroscience

    A zebrafish and mouse model for selective pruritus via direct activation of TRPA1

    Kali Esancy et al.
    A pain-relaying ion channel on a hypersensitive population of sensory neurons can instead elicit sensations of itch in both fish and mice when directly activated, providing a novel model of itch transduction.
    1. Cell Biology

    Myotubularin related protein-2 and its phospholipid substrate PIP2 control Piezo2-mediated mechanotransduction in peripheral sensory neurons

    Pratibha Narayanan et al.
    Local Mtmr2 activity and PI(3,5)P2 abundance dynamically control Piezo2-dependent mechanotransduction in peripheral sensory neurons.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Glucose inhibits cardiac muscle maturation through nucleotide biosynthesis

    Haruko Nakano et al.
    During cardiogenesis, the major role of glucose is not the catabolic extraction of energy but the anabolic biosynthesis of nucleotides.
    1. Developmental Biology
    2. Plant Biology

    Cell type boundaries organize plant development

    Monica Pia Caggiano et al.
    Leaf position, shape and orientation are pre-patterned by cell type boundaries in the shoot meristem.
    1. Biochemistry and Chemical Biology
    2. Cell Biology

    Proteomic analysis of cell cycle progression in asynchronous cultures, including mitotic subphases, using PRIMMUS

    Tony Ly et al.
    A detailed analysis of protein abundance and phosphorylation changes across mitotic subphases and interphase in asynchronously growing human cells has been enabled by combining FACS with quantitative MS-based proteomics.
    1. Genetics and Genomics

    Firefly genomes illuminate parallel origins of bioluminescence in beetles

    Timothy R Fallon et al.
    The first genomic view of beetle luciferase evolution indicates evolutionary independence of luciferase between fireflies and click-beetles, and provide valuable datasets which will accelerate the discovery of new biotechnological tools.
