    Plasmodium-specific atypical memory B cells are short-lived activated B cells

    Damián Pérez-Mazliah et al.
    Plasmodium-specific atypical memory B cells generated to naturally (mosquito) transmitted rodent malaria infection are short-lived activated B cells, and do not prevent resolution of infection or generation of long-lived memory.

    Response to comment on 'Valid molecular dynamics simulations of human hemoglobin require a surprisingly large box size'

    Krystel El Hage et al.
    We are writing to respond to the comment by Gapsys and de Groot, 2019 on our article about molecular dynamics simulations of human hemoglobin (El Hage et al., 2018).

    Optical detection of three modes of endocytosis at hippocampal synapses

    Natali L Chanaday, Ege T Kavalali
    Single synaptic vesicle imaging shows that kinetically distinct endocytic pathways are differentially regulated by calcium and temperature, and influence the fidelity of synaptic vesicle protein retrieval.

    Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase and COPII generate LC3 lipidation vesicles from the ER-Golgi intermediate compartment

    Liang Ge et al.
    Building on previous work (Ge et al., 2013), it is shown that the ER-Golgi intermediate compartment is a platform for the production of COPII vesicles as precursor membranes for the lipidation of LC3, which is an essential step in autophagosome biogenesis.

    Single synapse evaluation of the postsynaptic NMDA receptors targeted by evoked and spontaneous neurotransmission

    Austin L Reese, Ege T Kavalali
    In a population of mammalian central synapses, spontaneous and evoked neurotransmitter release processes are independently distributed; yet, postsynaptic receptors within a single synapse preferentially receive neurotransmitter from only one mode of release.

    Structure of mouse protocadherin 15 of the stereocilia tip link in complex with LHFPL5

    Jingpeng Ge et al.
    Structures of a mouse PCDH15 and LHFPL5 complex, two proteins involved in converting sound into electrical signals, illuminate how mechanical stimuli are delivered to the membrane of inner ear hair cells.

    Mutations in L-type amino acid transporter-2 support SLC7A8 as a novel gene involved in age-related hearing loss

    Meritxell Espino Guarch et al.
    SLC7A8 a neutral amino acid transporter has a key role in the maintenance of hearing during aging and its absence causes early onset of hearing loss.

    Heat stress promotes longevity in budding yeast by relaxing the confinement of age-promoting factors in the mother cell

    Sandro Baldi et al.
    To promote longevity under heat stress shares yeast aging factors with progeny through a down-regulation of the diffusion barrier in the membranes between the mitotic cells.

    Malaria: Age, exposure and immunity

    Michael White, James Watson
    The acquisition of immunity to malaria by an individual depends on their age and the number of infectious mosquito bites they have received.

    Epigenetic age-predictor for mice based on three CpG sites

    Yang Han et al.
    Site-specific DNA methylation analysis at three CG dinucleotides by pyrosequencing provides a reliable measure for epigenetic aging of mice.
