    A stable mode of bookmarking by TBP recruits RNA polymerase II to mitotic chromosomes

    Sheila S Teves et al.
    The general transcriptional machinery promotes the efficient reactivation of global transcription following mitosis, and thereby enables maintenance of transcriptional memory through the cell cycle.

    Decoding gripping force based on local field potentials recorded from subthalamic nucleus in humans

    Huiling Tan et al.
    Patterns of coordinated activity in the basal ganglia predict how much force we will use to grip objects, suggesting that individuals with paralysis may ultimately be able to use these signals to control graded responses in robotic devices.

    Characterizing a psychiatric symptom dimension related to deficits in goal-directed control

    Claire M Gillan et al.
    A dimensional approach to psychiatry demonstrates the specificity and generalizability of a neurocognitive marker of compulsive behavior and intrusive thought via large-scale online testing.

    Task-dependent recurrent dynamics in visual cortex

    Satohiro Tajima et al.
    A decoding-based, state-space reconstruction reveals that neurons in macaque IT cortex change the structure of their collective attractor dynamics depending on task contexts.

    Ezrin enrichment on curved membranes requires a specific conformation or interaction with a curvature-sensitive partner

    Feng-Ching Tsai et al.
    Ezrin, an important actin-membrane linker, can zip adjacent membranes, be enriched to positively-curved membranes when phosphorylated and to negatively-curved membranes through a direct interaction with membrane curvature sensor I-BAR domain proteins.

    The major β-catenin/E-cadherin junctional binding site is a primary molecular mechano-transductor of differentiation in vivo

    Jens-Christian Röper et al.
    The primary molecular mechanosensor involved in a physiological process of mechanically induced cell fate differentiation is revealed here for the first time in vivo, highly sensitive and potentially shared by all metazoan epithelia.

    Mechanism of ubiquitin ligation and lysine prioritization by a HECT E3

    Hari B Kamadurai et al.
    Structural studies reveal the mechanism by which a HECT E3 ubiquitin ligase carries out E2-to-E3-to-substrate ubiquitin transfer and prioritizes target lysines for ubiquitination.
    1. Genetics and Genomics

    Simultaneous quantification of mRNA and protein in single cells reveals post-transcriptional effects of genetic variation

    Christian Brion et al.
    A CRISPR-based dual reporter assay enables genetic mapping of DNA variants that specifically affect mRNA or protein levels in trans.

    Early life adversity decreases pre-adolescent fear expression by accelerating amygdala PV cell development

    Gabriela Manzano Nieves et al.
    Early life adversity (ELA) accelerated PV+ interneuron development in BLA and delayed the ability of pre-adolescent mice to express, but not form, an auditory conditioned fear memory in childhood.

    Agonist-mediated switching of ion selectivity in TPC2 differentially promotes lysosomal function

    Susanne Gerndt et al.
    The lysosomal ion channel TPC2 emerges as an example of an ion channel in which ion selectivity is not fixed but rather agonist-selective.
