    Cell-intrinsic and -extrinsic mechanisms promote cell-type-specific cytokinetic diversity

    Tim Davies et al.
    Functional molecular analysis of cytokinesis in Caenorhabditis elegans four-cell embryos reveals cell-type-specific variation in the fundamental dependence on a robust f-actin cytoskeleton for successful cell division, mediated by both cell-intrinsic and -extrinsic pathways.

    Low-noise encoding of active touch by layer 4 in the somatosensory cortex

    Samuel Andrew Hires et al.
    Touch information is represented with minimal noise in the somatosensory cortex during tactile exploration.

    Variation of connectivity across exemplar sensory and associative thalamocortical loops in the mouse

    Arghya Mukherjee et al.
    Compared to a sensory thalamocortical circuit, the mediodorsal thalamus preferentially innervates prefrontal cortical interneurons, and enhancing excitability of this thalamic structure drives prefrontal activity patterns that are dominated by inhibition.

    Mobilization of LINE-1 retrotransposons is restricted by Tex19.1 in mouse embryonic stem cells

    Marie MacLennan et al.
    Post-translational regulation of retrotransposons plays a key role in preventing retrotransposon mobilization in the epigenetically dynamic mouse germline.

    Plasmodium P36 determines host cell receptor usage during sporozoite invasion

    Giulia Manzoni et al.
    Host CD81 and Scavenger Receptor BI operate independently to mediate invasion of hepatocytes by different species of Plasmodium sporozoites, which use the parasite protein P36 as a key determinant of the entry route.

    Using an achiasmic human visual system to quantify the relationship between the fMRI BOLD signal and neural response

    Pinglei Bao et al.
    The lower-level retinotopic visual cortex of humans born without the optic chiasm comprises two independent neuronal populations and forms a versatile model for quantifying the relationship between the fMRI BOLD signal and neural response.

    Neuronal regulated ire-1-dependent mRNA decay controls germline differentiation in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Mor Levi-Ferber et al.
    Neuronal circuits can be disrupted by ire-1-dependent mRNA decay to affect germline tumor cell identity by regulating cross-tissue communication in Caenorhabditis elegans.
