    Episode 67: June 2020

    In this episode, we hear about a controversial claim in plant science, why we cannot get enough of chocolate, HIV in women, sex as a biological variable, and why not all zebrafish like to mingle.

    The effect of hybridization on transposable element accumulation in an undomesticated fungal species

    Mathieu Hénault et al.
    Transposable elements are not reactivated in natural hybrids of the yeast Saccharomyces paradoxus, but their accumulation is genotype-specific and is not predicted by the evolutionary divergence between a hybrid's parents.

    Human biallelic MFN2 mutations induce mitochondrial dysfunction, upper body adipose hyperplasia, and suppression of leptin expression

    Nuno Rocha et al.
    Specific human mitofusin 2 mutations induce selective upper body obesity with suppressed leptin expression and severe adipose mitochondrial dysfunction.

    Locus coeruleus to basolateral amygdala noradrenergic projections promote anxiety-like behavior

    Jordan G McCall et al.
    Selective activation of locus coeruleus noradrenergic terminals drives anxiety-like behaviors through activation of β-adrenergic receptors in the basolateral amygdala.

    Presynaptic developmental plasticity allows robust sparse wiring of the Drosophila mushroom body

    Najia A Elkahlah et al.
    Sensory innervation density in the insect associative learning center is set by postsynaptic cells and accomplished by flexible allocation of processes by presynaptic cells.

    Seipin is required for converting nascent to mature lipid droplets

    Huajin Wang et al.
    Seipin oligomers dynamically interact with small, nascent lipid droplets near the endoplasmic reticulum to convert them into larger, mature lipid droplets in a newly identified step of lipid droplet formation.

    Structural basis for the reaction cycle of DASS dicarboxylate transporters

    David B Sauer et al.
    Structures of multiple states of two dicarboxylate transporters explain the conformational changes needed for substrate import.

    In vivo detection of optically-evoked opioid peptide release

    Ream Al-Hasani et al.
    In vivo detection of optically evoked endogenous opioid peptides reveals anatomically distinct release profiles.

    Neural ensemble dynamics in dorsal motor cortex during speech in people with paralysis

    Sergey D Stavisky et al.
    Neurons in human dorsal motor cortex, an area involved in controlling arm and hand movements, are also active – and show similar ensemble dynamics – during speaking.
