    The origins and relatedness structure of mixed infections vary with local prevalence of P. falciparum malaria

    Sha Joe Zhu et al.
    Variation in the rate of mixed infections by malaria parasites and the relatedness structure among infecting strains reveals diversity in local epidemiological processes.

    Exercise-induced enhancement of synaptic function triggered by the inverse BAR protein, Mtss1L

    Christina Chatzi et al.
    Single episodes of voluntary exercise induced a functional increase in hippocampal synapses mediated by activity-dependent expression of the BAR protein Mtss1L, acting as a novel early effector of synapse formation.

    Rapid and iterative genome editing in the malaria parasite Plasmodium knowlesi provides new tools for P. vivax research

    Franziska Mohring et al.
    Optimised genome editing in P. knowlesi enables transgenic expression of a lead P. vivax vaccine candidate, revealing roles in host cell tropisms and providing tools for scalable vaccine efficacy testing.

    The Plasmodium liver-specific protein 2 (LISP2) is an early marker of liver stage development

    Devendra Kumar Gupta et al.
    LISP2 expression marks the beginning of awakening of dormant hypnozoite to developing malaria liver stages, which are susceptible to a novel prophylactic drug, Plasmodium PI4K inhibitor.

    Estimating the burden of α-thalassaemia in Thailand using a comprehensive prevalence database for Southeast Asia

    Carinna Hockham et al.
    The incorporation of as yet underused local epidemiological data on α-thalassaemia in Southeast Asia within a geostatistical model suggests that the burden of severe α-thalassaemia forms may have been underestimated.

    Mapping imported malaria in Bangladesh using parasite genetic and human mobility data

    Hsiao-Han Chang et al.
    Human mobility drives malaria importation within countries and threatens elimination interventions, but can be measured using new approaches that combine parasite genetics, mobile phone data, travel surveys and models.

    Potential herd protection against Plasmodium falciparum infections conferred by mass antimalarial drug administrations

    Daniel M Parker et al.
    Given sufficient population adherence, mass drug administration for falciparum malaria can provide group level benefits, also known as ‘herd effects’.

    A novel L1CAM isoform with angiogenic activity generated by NOVA2-mediated alternative splicing

    Francesca Angiolini et al.
    Endothelial cells express a soluble isoform of the L1CAM cell adhesion molecule that is generated by the splicing factor NOVA2 and induces angiogenesis, with relevant implications for ovarian cancer vascularization.

    Transcriptomic analysis reveals reduced transcriptional activity in the malaria parasite Plasmodium cynomolgi during progression into dormancy

    Nicole L Bertschi et al.
    Transcriptome profiling of malaria liver-stage parasites provides unprecedented knowledge on genes and pathways expressed in truly dormant hypnozoites and indicates that dormancy is associated with a switch in energy metabolism.

    Immune genes are hotspots of shared positive selection across birds and mammals

    Allison J Shultz, Timothy B Sackton
    Pathogens, particularly viruses, target the same genes over deep evolutionary time, resulting in shared signatures of positive selection and transcriptional responses at the same genes.
