    RNG105/caprin1, an RNA granule protein for dendritic mRNA localization, is essential for long-term memory formation

    Kei Nakayama et al.
    The formation of long-term memory in mice requires an element of RNA granules that localizes messenger RNAs to dendrites.

    Yeast Ded1 promotes 48S translation pre-initiation complex assembly in an mRNA-specific and eIF4F-dependent manner

    Neha Gupta et al.
    Yeast RNA helicase Ded1 stimulates ribosome recruitment of structure-laden native mRNAs in a reconstituted system by interactions between domains in Ded1 and initiation factor eIF4G that stabilizes a Ded1-eIF4F complex.

    Uncovering the computational mechanisms underlying many-alternative choice

    Armin W Thomas et al.
    A comparison of different computational models reveals that looking behavior, during value-based choices from 9, 16, 25, or 36 snack foods, actively influences the subjective values of the available alternatives.

    The modulation of savouring by prediction error and its effects on choice

    Kiyohito Iigaya et al.
    The anticipation of rewards turns out to have its own hedonic value, on top of that of the reward itself; a wide range of behavioral and neurophysiological data suggest that this anticipation is boosted by prediction errors.

    RNA binding protein Caprin-2 is a pivotal regulator of the central osmotic defense response

    Agnieszka Konopacka et al.
    Caprin-2 is up-regulated in the rat hypothalamus by osmotic stress and controls vital homeostatic osmoregulatory mechanisms by altering the length of the poly(A) tail on arginine vasopressin mRNAs.

    Robustness of the microtubule network self-organization in epithelia

    Aleksandra Z Płochocka et al.
    Computational, theoretical, and in vivo studies reveal that in epithelia the self-organization of apical microtubules is robustly determined by cell geometry and minus-end distribution, not organism environment or genetics.

    Memory CD4 T cell subsets are kinetically heterogeneous and replenished from naive T cells at high levels

    Graeme Gossel et al.
    The maintenance of memory CD4 T cells in mice relies on a continual and strikingly high level of replenishment from naive precursors, and older memory T cells may resist the influx of newer ones.

    Quantitative regulation of the dynamic steady state of actin networks

    Angelika Manhart et al.
    Cells are able to control the actin network length and steering by adjusting geometric, structural, or biochemical parameters such as ADF/Cofilin and actin concentrations, and network width.
  1. Annual report: Looking back on 2017

    A reflection on eLife's achievements in 2017, notably in convening and supporting communities, modernising technology for research communication and partnering with early-career researchers.

    The transition state and regulation of γ-TuRC-mediated microtubule nucleation revealed by single molecule microscopy

    Akanksha Thawani et al.
    Four αβ-tubulin dimers associate laterally on γ-TuRC to define the rate-limiting transition state for microtubule nucleation.
