    Probabilistic, spinally-gated control of bladder pressure and autonomous micturition by Barrington’s nucleus CRH neurons

    Hiroki Ito et al.
    Ponto-spinal CRH neurons in Barrington’s nucleus are a core component of an inferential circuit that regulates autonomous micturition and generates voids when the bladder is full.

    CRISPR/Cas9 and active genetics-based trans-species replacement of the endogenous Drosophila kni-L2 CRM reveals unexpected complexity

    Xiang-Ru Shannon Xu et al.
    Dissection of a cis-regulatory element (CRM) in its native chromosomal context using CRISPR/Cas9 editing and novel 'Active Genetics' reveals new features of CRM function and insights into how such regulatory elements change during evolution.

    Condensin I subunit Cap-G is essential for proper gene expression during the maturation of post-mitotic neurons

    Amira Hassan et al.
    The condensin I subunit Cap-G is expressed in post-mitotic neurons and its removal, especially from less mature neurons, results in gene expression changes, reduced survival and behavioural defects in Drosophila.

    Crk proteins transduce FGF signaling to promote lens fiber cell elongation

    Tamica N Collins et al.
    Crk proteins are critical mediators of FGF signaling to control cell shape changes.

    The size of the EB cap determines instantaneous microtubule stability

    Christian Duellberg et al.
    The EB binding region defines the length of the protective cap that stabilizes growing microtubules.

    A new synthetic biology approach allows transfer of an entire metabolic pathway from a medicinal plant to a biomass crop

    Paulina Fuentes et al.
    A combination of chloroplast transformation with nuclear transformation and large-scale metabolic screening of supertransformed plant lines has enabled an entire biochemical pathway to be transferred from a medicinal plant to a high-biomass crop.

    Cortical anchoring of the microtubule cytoskeleton is essential for neuron polarity

    Liu He et al.
    UNC119 complexes the microtubule binding CRMP to the cortical Ankyrin to immobilize the microtubule cytoskeleton in Caenorhabditis elegans neurons.

    Hidden shift of the ionome of plants exposed to elevated CO2 depletes minerals at the base of human nutrition

    Irakli Loladze
    Increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide reduce the mineral content but increase the levels of starch and sugars found in crop plants; which could exacerbate both obesity and malnutrition in some human populations.
