    Impact of precisely-timed inhibition of gustatory cortex on taste behavior depends on single-trial ensemble dynamics

    Narendra Mukherjee et al.
    Primary taste cortex does far more than code tastes by turning taste codes into motor commands via population dynamics.

    Hepatic NF-kB-inducing kinase (NIK) suppresses mouse liver regeneration in acute and chronic liver diseases

    Yi Xiong et al.
    Genetic mouse models show that hepatic NIK and IKKα inhibit hepatocyte proliferation and liver regeneration in part by inhibiting the JAK2/STAT3 pathway.

    Representation of time interval entrained by periodic stimuli in the visual thalamus of pigeons

    Yan Yang et al.
    The experience-dependent representation of time interval in the seconds-to-minutes range occurs as early as at the thalamic level in the brain.

    The mechanosensitive Piezo1 channel is required for bone formation

    Weijia Sun et al.
    Piezo1 functions as a key mechanotransducer for conferring mechanosensitivity to osteoblasts and determining mechanical-load-dependent bone formation, and represents a novel therapeutic target for treating osteoporosis or unloading-induced severe bone loss.

    Structural basis for subtype-specific inhibition of the P2X7 receptor

    Akira Karasawa, Toshimitsu Kawate
    Crystal structures of a mammalian P2X7 receptor and structure-based functional studies reveal a novel drug-binding site and subtype-specific conformational rearrangements required for channel opening.

    A deleterious Nav1.1 mutation selectively impairs telencephalic inhibitory neurons derived from Dravet Syndrome patients

    Yishan Sun et al.
    A human cellular model of a prototypical form of intractable childhood epilepsy supports selective impairment of inhibitory neurons as a key pathophysiological mechanism.

    Climate-mediated cooperation promotes niche expansion in burying beetles

    Syuan-Jyun Sun et al.
    Cooperation enables burying beetles to outcompete flies and adapt to a wider range of temperatures as thermal generalists.

    Dynamically evolving novel overlapping gene as a factor in the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic

    Chase W Nelson et al.
    A novel, overlapping, putatively functional gene in SARS-CoV-2, ORF3d, is absent from close relatives of SARS-CoV-2 and may have contributed to the biology, emergence, or spread of the virus.

    Skd3 (human ClpB) is a potent mitochondrial protein disaggregase that is inactivated by 3-methylglutaconic aciduria-linked mutations

    Ryan R Cupo, James Shorter
    Skd3 (human ClpB) is a potent ATP-dependent mitochondrial protein disaggregase that is activated by the rhomboid protease, PARL, and inactivated by MGCA7-linked mutations.

    Multimeric single-domain antibody complexes protect against bunyavirus infections

    Paul J Wichgers Schreur et al.
    Llama-derived single-domain antibodies, formatted as bispecific antibodies with human Fc domains, reduce and prevent bunyavirus-induced morbidity and mortality in mice upon prophylactic and therapeutic administration.
