    Individual crop loads provide local control for collective food intake in ant colonies

    Efrat Esther Greenwald et al.
    Colony satiation level determines the unloading rate of laden foragers, which, in turn, rely on their own food load to adjust their foraging effort.

    MreB filaments align along greatest principal membrane curvature to orient cell wall synthesis

    Saman Hussain et al.
    MreB filaments bind, orient, and move along the direction of greatest membrane curvature, thus orienting the insertion of new glycan strands around the cell circumference in a manner that may help establish and maintain rod shape.

    Global morphogenetic flow is accurately predicted by the spatial distribution of myosin motors

    Sebastian J Streichan et al.
    Epithelial tissue remodeling during Drosophila embryonic development is quantitatively described by a simple law relating myosin activity and cell flow.

    Why plants make puzzle cells, and how their shape emerges

    Aleksandra Sapala et al.
    Puzzle-shape cells in the epidermis of many plants form due to a development constraint based on mechanical forces.

    A spatial memory signal shows that the parietal cortex has access to a craniotopic representation of space

    Mulugeta Semework et al.
    Neural recordings and analyses illustrate a unique lateral intraparietal area (LIP) response that may contribute to how primates can establish a memory of the environment in a useful coordinate frame, and maintain this representation of the environment over time.

    Bipolar filaments of human nonmuscle myosin 2-A and 2-B have distinct motile and mechanical properties

    Luca Melli et al.
    Individual nonmuscle myosin 2 filaments in cells may differ their mechanical and kinetic properties depending on the myosin paralog composition giving the cells a mechanism for fine tuning the output of a given nonmuscle myosin filament.

    SAC1 degrades its lipid substrate PtdIns4P in the endoplasmic reticulum to maintain a steep chemical gradient with donor membranes

    James P Zewe et al.
    SAC1 is unable to adopt an efficient "trans" mode of action in living cells.
  1. Episode 45: February 2018

    In this episode, we hear about disease control in insects, placental development, post-traumatic stress disorder, the mission to create a human cell atlas and how crickets amplify their song.

    Spatial structure of disordered proteins dictates conductance and selectivity in nuclear pore complex mimics

    Adithya N Ananth et al.
    Biomimetic nanopores reveal that the sequence-dependent spatial distribution of intrinsically disordered proteins plays a crucial role in establishing the selective permeability barrier of the nuclear pore complex.

    Impact of the scale-up of piped water on urogenital schistosomiasis infection in rural South Africa

    Frank Tanser et al.
    Scale-up of safe water supplies decreases a child's risk of urogenital schistosomiasis infection by eight-fold in a typical rural African population.
