    Episode 4: September 2013

    In this episode we hear about how flatworms regenerate, the evolution of photosynthesis, social interactions between mice, the properties of undead cells, and how steroids and genes interact.

    The leukocyte non-coding RNA landscape in critically ill patients with sepsis

    Brendon P Scicluna et al.
    Long non-coding RNA profiles as a source of signal in sepsis.
    1. Cell Biology

    Polo-like kinase acts as a molecular timer that safeguards the asymmetric fate of spindle microtubule-organizing centers

    Laura Matellán et al.
    Molecular and cell biology analyses reveal novel roles of Polo-like kinases in establishing non-random segregation patterns of spindle-associated microtubule-organizing centers during mitosis, a phenomenon linked with replicative cell aging.

    Does diversity beget diversity in microbiomes?

    Naïma Madi et al.
    Microbiomediversity favors further diversity in a positive feedback that is strongest in lower-diversity biomes but which plateaus as niches are increasingly filled in higher-diversity biomes.

    Antibody escape by polyomavirus capsid mutation facilitates neurovirulence

    Matthew D Lauver et al.
    Cryo EM and a custom subvolume refinement approach applied to mouse polyomavirus revealed the in vivo impact of polyomavirus capsid mutations on antiviral antibody immunoevasion and neurovirulence.

    A common 1.6 mb Y-chromosomal inversion predisposes to subsequent deletions and severe spermatogenic failure in humans

    Pille Hallast et al.
    In addition to its academic merits, characterizing the genetic determinants of male (in)fertility and identifying clinically actionable genetic variants can lead to improved diagnosis or even treatment of such conditions.
    1. Neuroscience

    Astrocyte morphogenesis is dependent on BDNF signaling via astrocytic TrkB.T1

    Leanne M Holt et al.
    Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)/TrkB.T1 signaling contributes to astrocyte morphological maturation, with implications for neuronal synaptogenesis and function and astrocyte functional maturation.
    1. Neuroscience

    Different theta frameworks coexist in the rat hippocampus and are coordinated during memory-guided and novelty tasks

    Víctor J López-Madrona et al.
    Integration and segregation of information of memory and sensory in the hippocampus could be achieved by the coordination of distinct theta-gamma coding frameworks.

    Multiplexed measurement of variant abundance and activity reveals VKOR topology, active site and human variant impact

    Melissa A Chiasson et al.
    Human vitamin K epoxide reductase (VKOR) has a four transmembrane domain topology that supports the use of a homology model, enabling identification of active site residues and human variant impact.
    1. Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine

    Chemical modulation of transcriptionally enriched signaling pathways to optimize the conversion of fibroblasts into neurons

    Joseph Herdy et al.
    An unbiased RNAseq based strategy to identify targetable pathways and a streamlined lentiviral system provide a state of the art advance on direct fibroblast to neuron conversion.
