    Sexual transmission of murine papillomavirus (MmuPV1) in Mus musculus

    Megan E Spurgeon, Paul F Lambert
    MmuPV1, a papillomavirus that infects laboratory mice (Mus musculus), is discovered to be sexually transmitted, providing a new animal virus model to study sexually transmitted human papillomaviruses (HPVs).

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into mammalian biology from the wild house mouse Mus musculus

    Megan Phifer-Rixey, Michael W Nachman
    Studies of the house mouse Mus musculus have provided important insights into mammalian biology, and efforts to study wild house mice and to create new inbred strains from wild populations have the potential to increase its usefulness as a model system.

    NRF2 regulates core and stabilizing circadian clock loops, coupling redox and timekeeping in Mus musculus

    Ryan S Wible et al.
    NRF2 is the mechanism through which oxidative signals directly input into the circadian clockwork to link metabolism and timekeeping in Mus musculus.

    Genome-wide mapping in a house mouse hybrid zone reveals hybrid sterility loci and Dobzhansky-Muller interactions

    Leslie M Turner, Bettina Harr
    The genomic regions that cause male hybrids between house mouse subspecies to have low fertility have been identified.

    Constraints on neural redundancy

    Jay A Hennig et al.
    The distribution of redundant neural activity is coupled with task-relevant activity, which may limit the extent to which redundancy can be exploited by the brain for computation.

    Functional limb muscle innervation prior to cholinergic transmitter specification during early metamorphosis in Xenopus

    Francois M Lambert et al.
    Molecular labeling, electrophysiology and calcium imaging have revealed a novel switching of neurotransmitter at the frog neuromuscular junction where motoneurons transiently release glutamate before acetylcholine at synapses on developing hindlimb muscles at the onset of metamorphosis.

    The Hippo pathway controls myofibril assembly and muscle fiber growth by regulating sarcomeric gene expression

    Aynur Kaya-Çopur et al.
    Muscle fiber growth during development is controlled by the Hippo pathway that links the assembly state of the contractile sarcomeres with the transcriptional state of the sarcomeric genes.

    Intrinsic control of neuronal diversity and synaptic specificity in a proprioceptive circuit

    Maggie M Shin et al.
    Genetic and anatomical analyses of Hox gene function uncover a limb-independent program of sensory neuron fate specification and connectivity.

    Intracellular calcium leak lowers glucose storage in human muscle, promoting hyperglycemia and diabetes

    Eshwar R Tammineni et al.
    Calcium-driven protein changes, causing glycogenolysis, poor synthesis, and diminished content of glycogen, along with diminished glucose transporters, lead to hyperglycemia in patients prone to calcium leaks from intracellular muscle stores.

    Preserving neuromuscular synapses in ALS by stimulating MuSK with a therapeutic agonist antibody

    Sarah Cantor et al.
    An agonist antibody to MuSK, delivered after disease onset, decreases the loss of neuromuscular synapses, improves motor function and extends the lifespan of ALS mice.
