  1. A seed next to a sign saying "nothing to declare"

    Episode 64: February 2020

    In this episode we hear about genetic privacy, plants with three parents, using cannabis to treat endometriosis, a new type of hearing test and how we can enjoy a cuddle.

    Chromatinization of Escherichia coli with archaeal histones

    Maria Rojec et al.
    Escherichia coli is surprisingly tolerant to chromatinization by archaeal histones, suggesting that histones can become established as ubiquitous chromatin proteins without interfering critically with some key DNA-templated processes.

    ESCRTs function directly on the lysosome membrane to downregulate ubiquitinated lysosomal membrane proteins

    Lu Zhu et al.
    The lysosome membrane is a new functional location for the ESCRTs in yeast.

    Organization and function of Drosophila odorant binding proteins

    Nikki K Larter et al.
    A genetic analysis reveals that some olfactory sensilla of Drosophila do not require an abundant odorant binding protein and that one such protein may act in gain control.

    Early structural and functional plasticity alterations in a susceptibility period of DYT1 dystonia mouse striatum

    Marta Maltese et al.
    Structural and functional striatal synaptic plasticity abnormalities occur early in a sensitive developmental period, representing a potential unique endophenotypic traits that increase the risk of manifesting clinical symptoms in DYT1 mutation carriers.

    The asymmetry of female meiosis reduces the frequency of inheritance of unpaired chromosomes

    Daniel B Cortes et al.
    Female meiotic spindles correct trisomy by expelling extra chromosomes into the first polar body.

    Sub-second dynamics of theta-gamma coupling in hippocampal CA1

    Lu Zhang et al.
    A combination of signal processing and machine learning form a new approach to classify oscillatory coupling in single cycles without averaging over time and to capture cycle-by-cycle changes in coupling.

    Arcuate hypothalamic AgRP and putative POMC neurons show opposite changes in spiking across multiple timescales

    Yael Mandelblat-Cerf et al.
    Gradual changes in the firing of specific hypothalamic neurons over many hours signal falling energy levels, while short-lived changes over seconds and minutes signal the availability of food.

    HAT cofactor TRRAP modulates microtubule dynamics via SP1 signaling to prevent neurodegeneration

    Alicia Tapias et al.
    The Trrap-HAT-Sp1 axis operates a conserved transcriptional program to control proper microtubule dynamics in brain homeostasis and prevents neurodegeneration.
