    The Prop1-like homeobox gene unc-42 specifies the identity of synaptically connected neurons

    Emily G Berghoff et al.
    Circuit transcription factors may define the differentiation and assembly of distinct neurons into functional circuitry.

    A hypothesis on the capacity of plant odorant-binding proteins to bind volatile isoprenoids based on in silico evidences

    Deborah Giordano et al.
    It is hypothesized that volatile organic compounds emitted by plants after stress induction may be sensed by neighboring eavesdropping plants using odorant-binding proteins.

    Organ geometry channels reproductive cell fate in the Arabidopsis ovule primordium

    Elvira Hernandez-Lagana et al.
    In the Arabidopsis ovule primordium, germinal fate plasticity is coupled to the morphogenetic processes shaping the organ.

    Allosteric conformational ensembles have unlimited capacity for integrating information

    John W Biddle et al.
    The effective higher-order binding cooperativities arising from an ensemble of dynamically interchanging conformations are identified and shown to fully describe integration of binding information at thermodynamic equilibrium.

    Short and long sleeping mutants reveal links between sleep and macroautophagy

    Joseph L Bedont et al.
    Unbiased and targeted genetic approaches reveal a link between sleep and autophagy that could be relevant for sleep function, and for understanding pathological consequences of chronic sleep loss.

    Unveiling the sensory and interneuronal pathways of the neuroendocrine connectome in Drosophila

    Sebastian Hückesfeld et al.
    Core of a neuroendocrine synaptic network consists of a parallel set of interneurons that target distinct combinations of neuroendocrine outputs, thus enabling variability and flexibility in selection of physiological activity.

    Starvation-induced regulation of carbohydrate transport at the blood–brain barrier is TGF-β-signaling dependent

    Helen Hertenstein et al.
    Detailed analysis of transporter expression and glucose uptake rates shows that carbohydrate import at the blood–brain barrier is adapted via TGF-βsignaling-dependent transcriptional regulation of carbohydrate transporters to protect the brain form effects of nutrient shortage.

    Mesoscale phase separation of chromatin in the nucleus

    Gaurav Bajpai et al.
    Computer simulations show transitions between novel types of chromatin organization (peripheral, central, conventional) depending on chromatin interactions with itself, the lamin and nuclear hydration, measured in recent experiments.

    Thirst interneurons that promote water seeking and limit feeding behavior in Drosophila

    Dan Landayan et al.
    Thirsty seeking interneurons in Drosophila differentially regulate water intake and feeding behavior.

    Cell-scale biophysical determinants of cell competition in epithelia

    Daniel Gradeci et al.
    Mechanical competition is controlled by biophysical parameters that regulate cellular homeostatic density, while biochemical competition is regulated by parameters that influence the organisation of cells in a tissue.
