    microRNA-1 regulates sarcomere formation and suppresses smooth muscle gene expression in the mammalian heart

    Amy Heidersbach et al.
    microRNA-1 plays an essential role in the development and functioning of the heart by ensuring that genes for striated, rather than smooth, muscle are expressed there.

    Inferring eye position from populations of lateral intraparietal neurons

    Arnulf BA Graf, Richard A Andersen
    An area of visual-motor cortex called the lateral intraparietal area encodes eye position signals that support visually-guided behaviors and image stabilization.

    Core promoter factor TAF9B regulates neuronal gene expression

    Francisco J Herrera et al.
    An orphan TBP-associated factor, TAF9B, works in conjunction with the histone acetyl-transferase PCAF as transcriptional co-regulators of neuronal differentiation.

    Resting state functional connectivity in the human spinal cord

    Robert L Barry et al.
    Resting state spinal fMRI will be useful in studies of normal spinal cord function and central nervous system disorders.

    The translation elongation factor eEF1A1 couples transcription to translation during heat shock response

    Maria Vera et al.
    Eukaryotic translation elongation factor 1A1 controls the process of heat shock response, from transcriptional activation of the HSP70 gene, to HSP70 mRNA stabilization, nuclear export, and translation.

    Early intrinsic hyperexcitability does not contribute to motoneuron degeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

    Félix Leroy et al.
    Contrary to a long-standing hypothesis, the neuronal death that leads to muscle wastage in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis does not result from overactivity of those neurons during development.

    A stress assembly that confers cell viability by preserving ERES components during amino-acid starvation

    Margarita Zacharogianni et al.
    Amino-acid starvation leads to the formation of a reversible stress assembly, the Sec body, which is a pro-survival reservoir for components of the ER exit sites.

    The small molecule ISRIB reverses the effects of eIF2α phosphorylation on translation and stress granule assembly

    Carmela Sidrauski et al.
    Building on previous work which showed that the small molecule ISRIB potently blocks the integrated stress response (Sidrauski et al., 2013), we report on ISRIB's remarkable specificity and fast action in vivo, underscoring its proposed direct effect on translation.

    Pharmacological dimerization and activation of the exchange factor eIF2B antagonizes the integrated stress response

    Carmela Sidrauski et al.
    A drug-like molecule called ISRIB, which activates the translation initiation factor eIF2B, antagonizes stress responses as diverse as protein misfolding and nutrient deprivation, and restores protein synthesis, enhancing memory.

    The critical role of membralin in postnatal motor neuron survival and disease

    Bo Yang et al.
    Membralin mutant mice manifest a severe and early-onset motor neuron disease with defects in endoplasmic reticulum-associated protein degradation.
