Functional and mechanistic analyses of cancer cells containing homozygous deletion of TP53 and FXR2 reveal that inhibition of FXR1 blocks cell proliferation in a collateral lethality manner, opening an avenue to develop therapies targeting such cancers.
Computational modeling and analysis of mouse neural population data finds that the excitation/inhibition imbalance theory of brain disorders is too limited to account for key changes in neural activity statistics.
Identifying FMRP-bound mRNAs in hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons reveals cell-type specific regulation of autism-candidate and circadian mRNAs and FMRP-mediated control of memory across the circadian cycle.
The development of a novel, high throughput method for the sub-synaptic analysis of protein localization in molecularly classified synapse classes allows sub-compartment, multiplexed detection of proteins in synapses using wide-field microscopes.
Activity-dependent genetic labeling during behavioral learning shows Fragile-X syndrome model mice exhibit impaired hippocampal engram reactivation, and that enriched environment experience improves fear memory retrieval by enhancing engram reactivation efficacy.
The regulatory switch from protection to assimilation, which plants use to exploit natural, fluctuating light, involves movement of the enzyme ferredoxin:NADP(H) oxidoreductase between chloroplast membrane complexes.
Animal studies of fatty liver disease over-estimate the benefit of drugs due to publication bias and are confounded by off-target weight loss, illustrating the challenge of successful translational across species.
