  1. Point of View: Making science count in government

    Ian Boyd
    Science is an essential component of policy-making in most areas of government, but the scientific community does not always understand its role in this process.
  2. Scientist and Parent: Looking for the best of both worlds

    Bridget M Kuehn
    Research institutions could do more to support scientists who are pregnant or have young children.

    Point of View: Europe’s first and last field trial of gene-edited plants?

    Jean-Denis Faure, Johnathan A Napier
    The reclassification of gene editing as "GM" will impact on European plant sciences, making it more difficult to validate new traits in field trials and drive forward innovation.

    The intractable challenge of evaluating cattle vaccination as a control for bovine Tuberculosis

    Andrew James Kerr Conlan et al.
    Natural transmission experiments should be prioritised over risky and expensive field trials, in order to establish the impact of cattle vaccination on the transmission of bovine Tuberculosis.

    Phosphorylation of β-arrestin2 at Thr383 by MEK underlies β-arrestin-dependent activation of Erk1/2 by GPCRs

    Elisabeth Cassier et al.
    Phosphoproteomics identifies β-arrestin 2 phosphorylation at Thr383 by MEK as a key step of GPCR-induced Erk½ activation, thus providing new insight into the molecular mechanism underlying β-arrestin-dependent GPCR-operated signaling.

    Rv3723/LucA coordinates fatty acid and cholesterol uptake in Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Evgeniya V Nazarova et al.
    The integral membrane protein LucA facilitates fatty acid and cholesterol uptake into Mycobacterium tuberculosis by stabilizing the Mce1 and Mce4 transporters, respectively, and Mce1 functions as a fatty acid transporter in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

    Viral GPCR US28 can signal in response to chemokine agonists of nearly unlimited structural degeneracy

    Timothy F Miles et al.
    Numerous chemokine variants bearing no sequence resemblance elicit similar signaling behavior from the viral GPCR US28, suggesting a mechanism for receptor activation that accommodates extensive ligand degeneracy.
