    Preserving neuromuscular synapses in ALS by stimulating MuSK with a therapeutic agonist antibody

    Sarah Cantor et al.
    An agonist antibody to MuSK, delivered after disease onset, decreases the loss of neuromuscular synapses, improves motor function and extends the lifespan of ALS mice.

    Rab5 and Alsin regulate stress-activated cytoprotective signaling on mitochondria

    FoSheng Hsu et al.
    Oxidative stress leads to the translocation of Rab5 from endosome to mitochondria, regulated by ALS/Alsin, a component associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, leading to mitochondrial-endosomal physical contacts and a cytoprotective response.

    Transcriptional activator TAp63 is upregulated in muscular atrophy during ALS and induces the pro-atrophic ubiquitin ligase Trim63

    Yannick von Grabowiecki et al.
    Atrophic muscles of patients and animal models developing amyotrophic lateral sclerosis show an upregulation of TAp63 that stimulates the expression of a pro-atrophic ubiquitin ligase.

    Multiplex image-based autophagy RNAi screening identifies SMCR8 as ULK1 kinase activity and gene expression regulator

    Jennifer Jung et al.
    An image-based multiplex autophagosome RNAi screen targeting all Rab GTPases as well as their GAPs and GEFs identifies the Rab GEF SMCR8 as multifaceted autophagy modulator, which regulates kinase activity and gene expression of ULK1.

    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.

    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.

    Neural population dynamics in human motor cortex during movements in people with ALS

    Chethan Pandarinath et al.
    Neural ensemble activity in the human motor cortex contains dynamical structure that is independent of movement parameters and is not well-explained by current models.
