    Collateral sensitivity associated with antibiotic resistance plasmids

    Cristina Herencias et al.
    Acquisition of antibiotic resistance plasmids induces collateral sensitivity to clinically relevant antibiotics in Escherichia coli, paving the way for targeted 'anti-plasmid' therapies able to preferentially eliminate plasmid-carrying bacteria.

    Assigning mitochondrial localization of dual localized proteins using a yeast Bi-Genomic Mitochondrial-Split-GFP

    Gaétan Bader et al.
    The Bi-Genomic Mitochondrial-Split-GFP, where both fragments of the Split-GFP are expressed by separated translation machineries, shuts off cytosolic fluorescence of dual-localized proteins, allowing visualization of their mitochondrial echoforms.

    Tuberculosis-associated IFN-I induces Siglec-1 on tunneling nanotubes and favors HIV-1 spread in macrophages

    Maeva Dupont et al.
    Type-I interferon enriched microenvironment generated by Mycobacterium tuberculosis induces the Siglec-1 receptor expression in human macrophages, including on tunneling nanotubes, and contributes to the exacerbation of cell-to-cell transfer of HIV-1.

    Temporal transcriptional response to ethylene gas drives growth hormone cross-regulation in Arabidopsis

    Katherine Noelani Chang et al.
    The plant hormone ethylene regulates the expression of multiple genes in the model plant Arabidopsis, including those that respond to other hormones.

    Endogenous opioids in the nucleus accumbens promote approach to high-fat food in the absence of caloric need

    Kevin Caref, Saleem M Nicola
    Activation of mu-opioid receptors in the nucleus accumbens by their endogenous ligands promotes consumption of high-fat food in sated but not hungry rats, via enhancement of a neural signal that promotes cued approach behavior.

    Multiple knockout mouse models reveal lincRNAs are required for life and brain development

    Martin Sauvageau et al.
    Long intergenic noncoding RNA molecules (lincRNAs) are shown to have critical roles in mammalian development and physiology in vivo.

    Bichir external gills arise via heterochronic shift that accelerates hyoid arch development

    Jan Stundl et al.
    Unique heterochrony in the cranial segments in bichirs triggers the early formation of their external gills, and might be informative about developmental mechanisms facilitating increased breathing capacity.

    BAD inactivation exacerbates rheumatoid arthritis pathology by promoting survival of sublining macrophages

    Jie Li et al.
    Phosphorylation-mediated inactivation of pro-apoptotic BCL-2 family protein BAD confers the apoptosis resistance on synovial sublining macrophages, thereby contributing to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.

    Convalescent COVID-19 patients are susceptible to endothelial dysfunction due to persistent immune activation

    Florence WJ Chioh et al.
    COVID-19 survivors, who are at risk for vascular complications, would benefit from close monitoring and preventive therapy.
