    Dissection of zebrafish shha function using site-specific targeting with a Cre-dependent genetic switch

    Kotaro Sugimoto et al.
    A versatile invertible gene trap vector is generated and inserted into a defined genomic locus in zebrafish via homologous recombination, demonstrating an efficient genetic approach to performing conditional knockout analysis.

    Salicylate, diflunisal and their metabolites inhibit CBP/p300 and exhibit anticancer activity

    Kotaro Shirakawa et al.
    Salicylic acid, the precursor to aspirin, is an anti-tumor agent that blocks protein acetylation.

    Increasing plant diversity with border crops reduces insecticide use and increases crop yield in urban agriculture

    Nian-Feng Wan et al.
    Plant diversification can make an important contribution to ecological intensification and the sustainable use of associated ecosystem services in an urban ecosystem.

    Neural precursors of decisions that matter—an ERP study of deliberate and arbitrary choice

    Uri Maoz et al.
    The readiness potential—a long-established neural precursor of voluntary action claimed to precede the onset of the conscious decision to move—is absent, or at least significantly reduced, for deliberate decisions.

    SEC24A deficiency lowers plasma cholesterol through reduced PCSK9 secretion

    Xiao-Wei Chen et al.
    COPII vesicles regulate the metabolism of cholesterol through the selective transport of secretory proteins.

    Elevated synaptic vesicle release probability in synaptophysin/gyrin family quadruple knockouts

    Mathan K Raja et al.
    Synaptophysins and gyrins dampen synaptic strength selectively at low frequencies, hinting that synaptic transmission may play a frequency filtering role in biological computation that is more general than currently envisioned.

    The ion selectivity filter is not an activation gate in TRPV1-3 channels

    Andrés Jara-Oseguera et al.
    The TRPV1, TRPV2 and TRPV3 channels are gated on the cytosolic side of the pore, whereas structural changes in the ion selectivity filter associated with activation don't control cation access.

    SENP8 limits aberrant neddylation of NEDD8 pathway components to promote cullin-RING ubiquitin ligase function

    Kate E Coleman et al.
    Aberrant neddylation of non-cullin substrates disrupts normal cell cycle progression.

    ERK8 is a negative regulator of O-GalNAc glycosylation and cell migration

    Joanne Chia et al.
    The ERK8 kinase blocks the export of glycosyl-tranferases from the Golgi to the endoplasmic reticulum, and thus subsequent O-glycosylation of proteins that otherwise enhance cell motility and tissue invasion.
