    Personality links with lifespan in chimpanzees

    Drew M Altschul et al.
    Among captive chimpanzees, higher agreeableness males and higher openness females survive longer.

    Deep transcriptome annotation enables the discovery and functional characterization of cryptic small proteins

    Sondos Samandi et al.
    Conventional annotations of coding sequences have missed thousands of short open-reading frames encoding proteins that are conserved and with specific functions.

    Intracellular cholesterol trafficking is dependent upon NPC2 interaction with lysobisphosphatidic acid

    Leslie A McCauliff et al.
    Sterol kinetics and cell-based assays reveal a heretofore unknown step in cholesterol trafficking through the endolysosomal compartment, involving a direct functional interaction between NPC2 and lysosbisphosphatidic acid.

    MicroRNA-934 is a novel primate-specific small non-coding RNA with neurogenic function during early development

    Kanella Prodromidou et al.
    Primate-specific miR-934 mediates neurogenesis and downstream neuronal differentiation processes, modulating the expression of genes associated with the subplate, a region most prominent in primates, emerging during early cortical development.

    Effects of domestication on the gut microbiota parallel those of human industrialization

    Aspen T Reese et al.
    Gut microbial signatures of domestication parallel those of industrialization, implicating shared ecological drivers.

    Early maternal loss leads to short- but not long-term effects on diurnal cortisol slopes in wild chimpanzees

    Cédric Girard-Buttoz et al.
    Wild chimpanzees contrast to humans since adult male chimpanzees do not exhibit physiological indicators of biological embedding of the stress associated to maternal loss early in life.

    The evolution of the vestibular apparatus in apes and humans

    Alessandro Urciuoli et al.
    The morphology of the inner ear distinguishes major anthropoid clades and enables the proposal of various shared-derived features for apes as a whole, lesser apes, and great apes and humans.

    A panel of induced pluripotent stem cells from chimpanzees: a resource for comparative functional genomics

    Irene Gallego Romero et al.
    A panel of chimpanzee induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) will help realise the potential of iPSCs in primate studies, and in combination with genomic technologies, transform studies of comparative evolution.

    Neighboring communities of bonobos hunt different prey species

    Social Learning: Does culture shape hunting behavior in bonobos?

    Andrew Whiten
    New evidence that neighboring communities of bonobos hunt different prey species, despite extensive overlaps in where they live and hunt, is difficult to explain without invoking cultural factors.
