    Host sirtuin 2 as an immunotherapeutic target against tuberculosis

    Ashima Bhaskar et al.
    The inhibition of host Sirtuin-2 by AGK2 restricts mycobacterial growth in vivo by modulation of host transcriptome leading to activation of protective immune responses.

    Sleep is bi-directionally modified by amyloid beta oligomers

    Güliz Gürel Özcan et al.
    Amyloid beta, the major component of plaques in Alzheimer's disease, acutely and reversibly signals to modulate sleep as a function of oligomeric length, independently of neuronal loss.

    Droplet-based high-throughput cultivation for accurate screening of antibiotic resistant gut microbes

    William J Watterson et al.
    High-throughput droplet-based cultivation of gut microbes reduces biases of traditional cultivation strategies and thereby enables detection of difficult-to-culture organisms, which is required in applications such as antibiotic screening.

    Resident macrophages acquire innate immune memory in staphylococcal skin infection

    Reinhild Feuerstein et al.
    Resident dermal Mφ are programmed locally, independently of bone-marrow monocytes during Staphylococcus aureus infection, leading to transiently increased resistance, which is limited by a decrease in macrophage life span.

    Evolutionarily conserved regulation of immunity by the splicing factor RNP-6/PUF60

    Chun Kew et al.
    The splicing factor RNP-6/PUF60 suppresses immunity by modulating host splicing and transcriptional responses to infection.

    Targeted surveillance strategies for efficient detection of novel antibiotic resistance variants

    Allison L Hicks et al.
    Sampling informed by pathogen genomic data may facilitate more efficient detection of novel antibiotic resistance than random sampling.

    Slightly beneficial genes are retained by bacteria evolving DNA uptake despite selfish elements

    Bram van Dijk et al.
    Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) helps slightly beneficial genes persist in microbial populations, incentivising cells to invest in costly DNA uptake, even in the presence of harmful selfish genetic elements.

    Predictable properties of fitness landscapes induced by adaptational tradeoffs

    Suman G Das et al.
    Adaptational tradeoffs constrain the evolutionary pathways towards antimicrobial resistance, but highly fit mutants are nevertheless likely to arise at any concentration of the drug.

    FoxO suppresses endoplasmic reticulum stress to inhibit growth of Tsc1-deficient tissues under nutrient restriction

    Avantika Gupta, Hugo Stocker
    Transcriptomic and genetic analyses of FoxO target genes reveal a key function of ER-associated protein degradation in growth regulation of Tsc1-deficient tissues.
