    A non-mosaic transchromosomic mouse model of Down syndrome carrying the long arm of human chromosome 21

    Yasuhiro Kazuki et al.
    TcMAC21 is an appropriate “next gen” mouse model for DS research, and provides a proof of concept of using artificial chromosomes to generate non-mosaic humanized animal models of chromosome disorders.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Genetic dissection of Down syndrome-associated congenital heart defects using a new mouse mapping panel

    Eva Lana-Elola et al.
    A panel of seven new mouse strains with chromosomal duplications is used to identify a minimal genetic region required in three copies to cause congenital heart defects typical of human Down syndrome.

    Arabidopsis FORGETTER1 mediates stress-induced chromatin memory through nucleosome remodeling

    Krzysztof Brzezinka et al.
    Environmentally-mediated gene induction is extended beyond the duration of an external cue by sustaining a nucleosome-depleted chromatin structure.
    1. Computational and Systems Biology

    A computational interactome and functional annotation for the human proteome

    José Ignacio Garzón et al.
    A machine-learning approach is used to predict 1.35 million interactions for 85% of the human proteome.
    1. Neuroscience

    Intramuscular Neurotrophin-3 normalizes low threshold spinal reflexes, reduces spasms and improves mobility after bilateral corticospinal tract injury in rats

    Claudia Kathe et al.
    Delayed intramuscular gene therapy with neurotrophin-3 after corticospinal tract injury reduces spasticity and improves locomotion by treating underlying causes of spasticity.
    1. Neuroscience

    Alterations of in vivo CA1 network activity in Dp(16)1Yey Down syndrome model mice

    Matthieu Raveau et al.
    CA1 physiology is altered in the hippocampus of Down syndrome mice during both spatial exploration and rest, paralleled by an increase in populations of interneurons responsible for single cell and network synchronization.
    1. Neuroscience

    A Mammalian enhancer trap resource for discovering and manipulating neuronal cell types

    Yasuyuki Shima et al.
    A novel transposon-based enhancer trap screen in mice permits high throughput development of highly restricted driver strains targeting specific neuronal cell types.

    Serum amyloid A is a retinol binding protein that transports retinol during bacterial infection

    Mehabaw G Derebe et al.
    Serum amyloid A proteins bind retinol with nanomolar affinity, and do so by forming oligomers that create a hydrophobic pocket that shields retinol from the aqueous environment.

    Evidence for evolutionary divergence of activity-dependent gene expression in developing neurons

    Jing Qiu et al.
    The transcriptional response of human neurons to calcium ion signals shows evolutionary divergence from those responses elicited in mouse neurons, providing evidence in favour of using human systems to study neuronal responses to external stimuli.

    Synergy between serum amyloid A and secretory phospholipase A2

    Shobini Jayaraman et al.
    SAA removes toxic products of lipolysis of the cell membrane by sPLA2, indicating that SAA and sPLA2 act synergistically to clear debris from injured sites, as required for tissue healing.
