    Cadherin preserves cohesion across involuting tissues during C. elegans neurulation

    Kristopher M Barnes et al.
    A coordinated tissue movement during C. elegans central nervous system internalization reveals a novel role for HMR-1/cadherin in maintaining cohesion, and extends the concept of neurulation beyond vertebrates.

    PLK-1 promotes the merger of the parental genome into a single nucleus by triggering lamina disassembly

    Griselda Velez-Aguilera et al.
    The polo-like kinase (Plk1) phophorylates the C. elegans lamin LMN-1 to promote timely lamina disassembly, which is essential for the merging of the parental chromosomes at the beginning of life.

    PTPRG is an ischemia risk locus essential for HCO3-dependent regulation of endothelial function and tissue perfusion

    Kristoffer B Hansen et al.
    HCO3-sensitive regulation of endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation by receptor-type tyrosine-protein phosphatase RPTPγ provides a novel mechanism for acid-base-mediated coordination of cerebrovascular perfusion during increased local metabolism and for protection against ischemia.

    Breakage of the oligomeric CaMKII hub by the regulatory segment of the kinase

    Deepti Karandur et al.
    Activation and autophosphorylation of CaMKII releases the regulatory segment, which can then bind to and destabilize the hub assembly by trapping large fluctuations in the hub architecture.

    Serine phosphorylation regulates the P-type potassium pump KdpFABC

    Marie E Sweet et al.
    Phosphorylation of a highly conserved serine residue is a physiological response of Escerichia coli to environmental potassium levels that inhibits transport by KdpFABC to maintain cellular homeostasis.
  1. Meta-Research: Evaluating the impact of open access policies on research institutions

    Chun-Kai (Karl) Huang et al.
    A longitudinal study of open access levels at 1,207 research institutions worldwide reveals high performing institutions in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

    M2 cortex-dorsolateral striatum stimulation reverses motor symptoms and synaptic deficits in Huntington’s disease

    Sara Fernández-García et al.
    M2 cortex-dorsolateral striatum circuit is functionally altered in Huntington's disease and, by boosting its activity, we reverse symptoms at behavioral, physiological, and morphological level in symptomatic mice.

    Anatomy of nerve fiber bundles at micrometer-resolution in the vervet monkey visual system

    Hiromasa Takemura et al.
    Polarized light imaging demonstrates detailed organization of projection, callosal, longitudinal association and short association fibers in the primate visual system at micrometer-resolution.

    A single-cell atlas of the mouse and human prostate reveals heterogeneity and conservation of epithelial progenitors

    Laura Crowley et al.
    Single-cell analyses identify distinct epithelial populations that are conserved between the adult mouse and human prostate, including populations with properties of multipotent progenitors in organoid formation and tissue reconstitution assays.

    Ordered dephosphorylation initiated by the selective proteolysis of cyclin B drives mitotic exit

    James Holder et al.
    Selective APC/C-mediated proteolysis of cyclin B drives progression through the metaphase-anaphase transition whilst wide-spread waves of dephosphorylation co-ordinate the subsequent events of mitotic exit.
