    Achieving functional neuronal dendrite structure through sequential stochastic growth and retraction

    André Ferreira Castro et al.
    An optimal wire and function trade-off emerges from noisy growth and stochastic retraction during Drosophila class I ventral posterior dendritic arborisation (c1vpda) dendrite development.

    Cold-induced hyperphagia requires AgRP neuron activation in mice

    Jennifer D Deem et al.
    A combination of neuroscience approaches and indirect calorimetry demonstrate a physiological role for AgRP neurons in cold-induced hyperphagia and strongly suggest temperature is an important regulator of AgRP neuron activity.

    Epigenetic regulation of Wnt7b expression by the cis-acting long noncoding RNA Lnc-Rewind in muscle stem cells

    Andrea Cipriano et al.
    The epigenetic regulation of adult muscle stem cell fate by lnc-Rewind relies on the RNA-mediated recruitment of G9a methyltransferase on the Wnt7b genomic locus.

    Collateral sensitivity associated with antibiotic resistance plasmids

    Cristina Herencias et al.
    Acquisition of antibiotic resistance plasmids induces collateral sensitivity to clinically relevant antibiotics in Escherichia coli, paving the way for targeted 'anti-plasmid' therapies able to preferentially eliminate plasmid-carrying bacteria.

    A transcriptomic taxonomy of Drosophila circadian neurons around the clock

    Dingbang Ma et al.
    Drosophila clock neurons manifest remarkable heterogeneity, which might be generally true and help explain why Drosophila has a sophisticated behavioral repertoire despite a tiny brain of about 100,000 neurons.

    Deleting Mecp2 from the cerebellum rather than its neuronal subtypes causes a delay in motor learning in mice

    Nathan P Achilly et al.
    The loss of Mecp2 results in cerebellar dysfunction that contributes to the motor deficits in Rett syndrome.

    A dietary sterol trade-off determines lifespan responses to dietary restriction in Drosophila melanogaster females

    Brooke Zanco et al.
    Micronutrients, not macronutrients, regulate lifespan.

    Data-driven reduction of dendritic morphologies with preserved dendro-somatic responses

    Willem AM Wybo et al.
    A flexible and accurate methodology to fit reduced compartmental models to dendritic morphologies shows that models with very few compartments can capture many dendritic computations.

    A live attenuated-vaccine model confers cross-protective immunity against different species of the Leptospira genus

    Elsio A Wunder et al.
    A single dose of a characterized motility-deficient mutant was sufficient to induce robust anti-protein antibodies' response and cross-protective immunity against death and colonization in two different animal models of leptospirosis.

    Thermal acclimation of tropical coral reef fishes to global heat waves

    Jacob L Johansen et al.
    The ability of animals to adjust to thermal stress is critical for survival under global warming, yet the adjustment process and scope have (until now) remained obscure in marine fishes.
