    Sex-based differences in clearance of chronic Plasmodium falciparum infection

    Jessica Briggs et al.
    Lower malaria prevalence in females does not appear to be due to lower rates of infection but rather due to faster clearance of asymptomatic infections.

    Frontal beta-theta network during REM sleep

    Sujith Vijayan et al.
    Two regions of the frontal lobe – the anterior cingulate cortex and, unexpectedly, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex – show coordinated rhythmic activity during REM sleep.

    Cis and trans RET signaling control the survival and central projection growth of rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors

    Michael S Fleming et al.
    Cis and trans activation of the receptor tyrosine kinase RET lead to similar biological outcomes in rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors in vivo.

    RNA-guided assembly of Rev-RRE nuclear export complexes

    Yun Bai et al.
    Tertiary folding of the Rev-response element (RRE) in HIV RNA ensures the rapid formation of the Rev-RRE viral ribonucleoprotein particle via a two-step process.

    Identification of octopaminergic neurons that modulate sleep suppression by male sex drive

    Daniel R Machado et al.
    The balance between sleep and sex drives determines whether male flies sleep or court, and a subset of octopaminergic neurons interact with the Fruitless-expressing courtship circuit to suppress sleep for sustained courtship.

    Piezo1 links mechanical forces to red blood cell volume

    Stuart M Cahalan et al.
    In red blood cells, the Piezo1 protein is responsible for sensing mechanical forces and volume regulation.

    Sox8 and Sox9 act redundantly for ovarian-to-testicular fate reprogramming in the absence of R-spondin1 in mouse sex reversals

    Nainoa Richardson et al.
    Sox8 can induce female-to-male sex reversal of the R-spondin1 loss-of-function mouse mutants in the absence of Sox9..

    Oxygen isotopes suggest elevated thermometabolism within multiple Permo-Triassic therapsid clades

    Kévin Rey et al.
    Two therapsid clades, dicynodonts and cynodonts, independently acquired and developed an endotherm-like thermoregulation during the Late Permian period, that probably helped them to survive the major global climate and environmental fluctuations of the end-Permian.

    Sexual dimorphism in trait variability and its eco-evolutionary and statistical implications

    Susanne RK Zajitschek et al.
    Sex differences in trait variability imply that both sexes should be included in biomedical trials, using sex-specific statistical power calculations.

    Addressing shortfalls of laboratory HbA1c using a model that incorporates red cell lifespan

    Yongjin Xu et al.
    The person-specific adjusted HbA1c addresses non-glycaemic variation in laboratory HbA1c due to red blood cell lifespan differences, potentially providing a better marker to predict diabetes complications and guide glycaemic management.
