    Light-at-night exposure affects brain development through pineal allopregnanolone-dependent mechanisms

    Shogo Haraguchi et al.
    Diurnal variation loss of pineal allopregnanolone synthesis by light-at-night induces pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) reduction and transcriptional PACAP repression in the cerebellum, with subsequent Purkinje cell death.

    Observation of long-range tertiary interactions during ligand binding by the TPP riboswitch aptamer

    Van K Duesterberg et al.
    The combined use of optical trapping and single-molecule FRET permits the study of riboswitch structure formation and conformational dynamics at the same time.

    Specificity in endoplasmic reticulum-stress signaling in yeast entails a step-wise engagement of HAC1 mRNA to clusters of the stress sensor Ire1

    Eelco van Anken et al.
    Selective docking of HAC1 mRNA on Ire1 clusters at a site separate from the Ire1 RNase domain is key for endoplasmic reticulum stress signaling.

    Stress-induced Cdk5 activity enhances cytoprotective basal autophagy in Drosophila melanogaster by phosphorylating acinus at serine437

    Nilay Nandi et al.
    Cdk5-mediated stabilization of Acinus in postmitotic neurons promotes autophagy and the removal of protein aggregates linked to neurodegeneration in Drosophila melanogaster.

    A new family of StART domain proteins at membrane contact sites has a role in ER-PM sterol transport

    Alberto T Gatta et al.
    A new family of sterol-specific lipid transfer proteins has been found that anchors in the endoplasmic reticulum; some of these proteins stretch across membrane contacts and mediate sterol traffic from the plasma membrane.

    Comment on 'Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age'

    Philip Dammann et al.
    We are writing to comment on the article by Ruby et al., 2018 about aging in naked mole-rats.

    Oxytocin functions as a spatiotemporal filter for excitatory synaptic inputs to VTA dopamine neurons

    Lei Xiao et al.
    Oxytocin, a peptide linked to the processing of socially meaningful stimuli, modulates excitatory synaptic transmission in dopaminergic neurons of ventral tegmental area via retrograde endocannabinoid signaling, acting as a pathway-specific temporal filter for synaptic inputs.

    Response to comment on 'Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age'

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    We are writing to respond to the comment by Dammann et al., 2019 on our article about aging in naked mole-rats (Ruby et al., 2018).

    Analysis of the genomic architecture of a complex trait locus in hypertensive rat models links Tmem63c to kidney damage

    Angela Schulz et al.
    Genetic and functional studies reveal a previously unrecognized role for a transmembrane protein in glomerular filtration barrier function.

    Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    Unlike all other mammals studied to date, the age-specific risk of mortality for naked mole-rats did not increase over decades of life, identifying this species as a non-aging mammal.
