    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into mammalian biology from the wild house mouse Mus musculus

    Megan Phifer-Rixey, Michael W Nachman
    Studies of the house mouse Mus musculus have provided important insights into mammalian biology, and efforts to study wild house mice and to create new inbred strains from wild populations have the potential to increase its usefulness as a model system.

    Overriding FUS autoregulation in mice triggers gain-of-toxic dysfunctions in RNA metabolism and autophagy-lysosome axis

    Shuo-Chien Ling et al.
    Elevating FUS level by saturating autoregulation loop in mice causes aggressive motor neuron disease via disrupting protein and RNA homeostasis.

    Deletion of Stk11 and Fos in mouse BLA projection neurons alters intrinsic excitability and impairs formation of long-term aversive memory

    David Levitan et al.
    Stk11 and Fos expression plays an important role in CTA long-term memory formation by modulating the intrinsic excitability of BLApn.

    CD95/Fas ligand mRNA is toxic to cells

    Will Putzbach et al.
    The mRNA of the apoptosis inducing death ligand CD95L/FasL kills cancer cells through RNAi after conversion into small RNAs that are loaded into the RNA-induced Silencing Complex.

    NRF2 regulates core and stabilizing circadian clock loops, coupling redox and timekeeping in Mus musculus

    Ryan S Wible et al.
    NRF2 is the mechanism through which oxidative signals directly input into the circadian clockwork to link metabolism and timekeeping in Mus musculus.

    The DREAM complex through its subunit Lin37 cooperates with Rb to initiate quiescence

    Christina FS Mages et al.
    Lin37 is essential for cell-cycle gene repression by the DREAM complex in cellular quiescence and a combined loss of Lin37 and Rb prevents cell-cycle exit in response to growth-limiting signals.

    A cortical disinhibitory circuit for enhancing adult plasticity

    Yu Fu et al.
    Building on previous work (Kaneko and Stryker, 2014), we report that the specific population of inhibitory neurons that increases the responses of neurons in the visual cortex during locomotion will also, when activated or blocked artificially, dramatically alter adult cortical plasticity, revealing that the aerobic exercise of locomotion is not necessary.

    Expression of different L1 isoforms of Mastomys natalensis papillomavirus as mechanism to circumvent adaptive immunity

    Yingying Fu et al.
    Cutaneous papillomaviruses potentially escape humoral immune response by synthesizing an alternative major capsid protein isoform during the initial course of infection that is unable to induce neutralizing antibodies.

    The genome of the Hi5 germ cell line from Trichoplusia ni, an agricultural pest and novel model for small RNA biology

    Yu Fu et al.
    The genome sequence of Trichoplusia ni enables the use of this widespread lepidopteran pest as a model for both the study of small RNA pathways and insecticide resistance.

    Set7 mediated Gli3 methylation plays a positive role in the activation of Sonic Hedgehog pathway in mammals

    Lin Fu et al.
    Methylation of Gli3 by Set7 enhances the activation of Hedgehog signaling and contributes to tumor growth and metastasis in vitro and in vivo.
