    A Non-stop identity complex (NIC) supervises enterocyte identity and protects from premature aging

    Neta Erez et al.
    A nuclear Non-stop identity complex (NIC) supervises enterocyte (EC) identity, preserves tissue homeostasis, and prevents premature aging by maintaining EC-specific gene expression, silencing non-relevant programs, and safeguarding large-scale nuclear organization.

    Ablation of SNX6 leads to defects in synaptic function of CA1 pyramidal neurons and spatial memory

    Yang Niu et al.
    SNX6 regulates the distribution of a protein called Homer1b/c to distal dendrites, enabling the latter to stabilize the synapses and thereby support memory formation.

    Signed and unsigned reward prediction errors dynamically enhance learning and memory

    Nina Rouhani, Yael Niv
    Throughout learning, both unexpected outcomes and the predictive value of cues modulate learning rate and episodic memory, thereby supporting two seemingly opposing theories of associative learning.

    Dissecting transcriptional amplification by MYC

    Zuqin Nie et al.
    Synthetic biology experiments show that MYC is a general transcription amplifier acting at two or more sites in the transcription-cycle and that MYC-turnover contributes to its activity.

    Super-resolution imaging of a 2.5 kb non-repetitive DNA in situ in the nuclear genome using molecular beacon probes

    Yanxiang Ni et al.
    Molecular beacon based FISH shows the capability of visualizing a 2.5 kb non-repetitive genomic DNA sequence in situ in human or mouse nuclear genome at super resolution.

    Premature polyadenylation of MAGI3 produces a dominantly-acting oncogene in human breast cancer

    Thomas K Ni, Charlotte Kuperwasser
    The study of a recurrent breast cancer MAGI3 truncation reveals the role of MAGI3 in regulating the Hippo effector YAP and highlights premature mRNA cleavage and polyadenylation as a mechanism underlying cancer development.

    Slo2 potassium channel function depends on RNA editing-regulated expression of a SCYL1 protein

    Long-Gang Niu et al.
    The pseudokinase protein SCYL1 is an evolutionarily conserved enhancer of Slo2 potassium channel activity.

    Inequalities in the distribution of National Institutes of Health research project grant funding

    Michael S Lauer, Deepshikha Roychowdhury
    Funding inequalities for NIH-supported research project grant investigators and organizations have increased over the past 25 years, but have modestly decreased over the past 3 years.
  1. Point of View: The NIH must reduce disparities in funding to maximize its return on investments from taxpayers

    Wayne P Wahls
    A more balanced distribution of NIH grant funding among investigators would strengthen the diversity of the research enterprise, increase the likelihood of scientific breakthroughs, and lead to a greater return on taxpayers' investments.
