    Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    Unlike all other mammals studied to date, the age-specific risk of mortality for naked mole-rats did not increase over decades of life, identifying this species as a non-aging mammal.

    TP53 copy number expansion is associated with the evolution of increased body size and an enhanced DNA damage response in elephants

    Michael Sulak et al.
    Elephants escaped enhanced cancer susceptibility by evolving more master tumor suppressor genes.

    Subterranean mammals show convergent regression in ocular genes and enhancers, along with adaptation to tunneling

    Raghavendran Partha et al.
    Repeated evolution of eye regression in subterranean mammals helps identify genes and regulatory elements involved in visual perception and development of the eye, and predicts candidate sequences with a potential role in ocular disorders.

    Identification of TMEM206 proteins as pore of PAORAC/ASOR acid-sensitive chloride channels

    Florian Ullrich et al.
    TMEM206 proteins are identified as constituting the pore of the widely expressed acid-activated chloride channel PAORAC/ASOR, which is important in acid toxicity.

    Response to comment on 'Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age'

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    We are writing to respond to the comment by Dammann et al., 2019 on our article about aging in naked mole-rats (Ruby et al., 2018).

    NOCA-1 functions with γ-tubulin and in parallel to Patronin to assemble non-centrosomal microtubule arrays in C. elegans

    Shaohe Wang et al.
    The C. elegans ninein homolog NOCA-1 is important for the assembly of non-centrosomal microtubule arrays required for embryo production, nuclear positioning and larval development.
