    Discovery of methylfarnesoate as the annelid brain hormone reveals an ancient role of sesquiterpenoids in reproduction

    Sven Schenk et al.
    A small brain-derived lipid prevents bristle worms from entering maturation and death, challenging current views of hormone evolution and pesticide specificity.

    Endocrine remodelling of the adult intestine sustains reproduction in Drosophila

    Tobias Reiff et al.
    A hormone released after mating acts directly on adult intestinal progenitors and differentiated epithelial cells in Drosophila to change their homeostatic setpoint and maximise fecundity.

    Action potential-coupled Rho GTPase signaling drives presynaptic plasticity

    Shataakshi Dube O'Neil et al.
    Proteomic and genetic analysis discovers a new cytoskeletal mechanism of presynaptic short-term plasticity common across neuronal cell types.

    Peroxisomal lactate dehydrogenase is generated by translational readthrough in mammals

    Fabian Schueren et al.
    Whole-genome in silico screening for stop codon contexts that produce elevated translational readthrough and peroxisome targeting reveals that in mammals, the amount of lactate dehydrogenase in the peroxisome is controlled by translational readthrough.

    Ribosome profiling reveals pervasive and regulated stop codon readthrough in Drosophila melanogaster

    Joshua G Dunn et al.
    Ribosomes translate through stop codons far more often than previously thought, yielding C-terminally extended proteins in a variety of eukaryotes.

    Point of View: Hypothesis, analysis and synthesis, it's all Greek to me

    Ioannis Iliopoulos et al.
    Many scientific terms have been borrowed from ancient languages, but their modern usage often overlooks their etymology, as do many new terms coined by scientists.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The unexhausted potential of E. coli

    Zachary D Blount
    A better understanding of the remarkable diversity, natural history and complex ecology of E. coli in the wild could shed new light on its biology and role in disease, and further expand its many uses as a model organism.

    Synergy between Wsp1 and Dip1 may initiate assembly of endocytic actin networks

    Connor J Balzer et al.
    An activator of branching nucleation by Arp2/3 complex directly synergizes with an activator of linear filament nucleation to initiate assembly of actin networks that drive endocytosis.

    DeepFRET, a software for rapid and automated single-molecule FRET data classification using deep learning

    Johannes Thomsen et al.
    An open-source user-friendly toolbox implementing machine learning for single-molecule FRET analysis enabling experts and non-experts to reproducibly provide dynamic structural biology insights.
