    A prefrontal-bed nucleus of the stria terminalis circuit limits fear to uncertain threat

    Lucas R Glover et al.
    A neural circuit between the prefrontal cortex and bed nucleus of the stria terminalis is shown to limit fear to cues that only partially associate with threat.

    Residue-by-residue analysis of cotranslational membrane protein integration in vivo

    Felix Nicolaus et al.
    The cotranslational membrane integration of three multispanning Escherichia coli inner membrane proteins is followed using force profile analysis, uncovering unexpected complexities in the membrane integration process.

    Adaptive evolution of nontransitive fitness in yeast

    Sean W Buskirk et al.
    A series of selective events, each improving fitness relative to an immediate predecessor, can result in organisms that are less fit compared to a distant ancestor.

    BipA exerts temperature-dependent translational control of biofilm-associated colony morphology in Vibrio cholerae

    Teresa del Peso Santos et al.
    Vibrio cholerae uses a conserved ribosome assembly factor to repress biofilm formation at low temperatures.

    Hormone-sensitive lipase couples intergenerational sterol metabolism to reproductive success

    Christoph Heier et al.
    An ancestral enzyme tailors allocation of essential lipid resources to the progeny and connects maternal and embryonic sterol metabolism for reproductive success.

    Proteomics reveals synergy between biomass degrading enzymes and inorganic Fenton chemistry in leaf-cutting ant colonies

    Morten Schiøtt, Jacobus J Boomsma
    Leaf-cutting ants use their fecal fluid to vector enzymes produced by their fungal symbiont to degrade plant biomass with a combination of degradation enzymes and Fenton chemistry.

    Behavioral role of PACAP signaling reflects its selective distribution in glutamatergic and GABAergic neuronal subpopulations

    Limei Zhang et al.
    Placing the PACAP/PAC1 signaling within glutamate/GABA cell type and subregional contexts in mouse brain reveals its conspicuous role for sensorimotor circuit interaction through modulating neuronal plasticity.
