    Epithelial magnesium transport by TRPM6 is essential for prenatal development and adult survival

    Vladimir Chubanov et al.
    Mice deficient in the TRPM6 channel suffer from impaired prenatal development, shortened lifespan, growth deficit and disturbed energy balance due to a defect in epithelial Mg2+ uptake, thus highlighting a pivotal role of TRPM6 in organismal Mg2+ homeostasis.

    Nuclear export of misfolded SOD1 mediated by a normally buried NES-like sequence reduces proteotoxicity in the nucleus

    Yongwang Zhong et al.
    Cellular and genetic approaches reveal that exposure of a normally buried nuclear export signal (NES)-like sequence mediates export of ALS-linked mutant and misfolded wild-type SOD1 to the cytoplasm by CRM1.

    Internal states drive nutrient homeostasis by modulating exploration-exploitation trade-off

    Verónica María Corrales-Carvajal et al.
    A quantitative video tracking analysis reveals that to gain the nutrients they need, flies change their decisions to exploit foods with different nutrient contents and explore the environment according to their internal amino acid and reproductive states.

    NF-κB oscillations translate into functionally related patterns of gene expression

    Samuel Zambrano et al.
    NF-κB oscillations synchronize to external perturbations as a damped oscillator, producing different transcription dynamics.

    Variation in human herpesvirus 6B telomeric integration, excision, and transmission between tissues and individuals

    Michael L Wood et al.
    Human herpesvirus 6B can transition between telomere-integrated and free viral forms, and frequent telomere-loop-driven partial or complete viral genome excision events create mosaicism in germline carriers of inherited chromosomally integrated HHV-6B.

    Dentate gyrus development requires a cortical hem-derived astrocytic scaffold

    Alessia Caramello et al.
    An astrocytic scaffold that depends on SOX9 guides embryonic neuronal progenitors toward the developing dentate gyrus.
    1. Neuroscience

    Salivary and plasmatic oxytocin are not reliable trait markers of the physiology of the oxytocin system in humans

    Daniel Martins et al.
    Single measurements of baseline salivary and plasmatic oxytocin are not sufficiently reliable to provide valid trait markers of the physiology of the oxytocin system in humans.

    Cytokinin transfer by a free-living mirid to Nicotiana attenuata recapitulates a strategy of endophytic insects

    Christoph Brütting et al.
    Cytokinin-dependent manipulation of plant metabolism is a strategy employed not only by gallers and leaf-miners but also by a free-living insect, Tupiocoris notatus, which directly transfers cytokinins at feeding sites to manipulate its host plant.

    Phenotype inference in an Escherichia coli strain panel

    Marco Galardini et al.
    The mechanistic impact of genetic variants can be combined with previous knowledge on gene function to deliver conditional growth predictions and pave the way for personalized genetic interventions.
