    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.

    C-mannosylation supports folding and enhances stability of thrombospondin repeats

    Aleksandra Shcherbakova et al.
    C-mannosylation supports native folding of thrombospondin type 1 repeats in the endoplasmic reticulum and stabilizes the folded proteins by modulating the dynamics of the tryptophan-arginine ladder.

    The cuticular hydrocarbon profiles of honey bee workers develop via a socially-modulated innate process

    Cassondra L Vernier et al.
    Chemical nestmate recognition in honey bee colonies depends on an innate, socially modulated developmental process.

    Functionally defined white matter of the macaque monkey brain reveals a dorso-ventral attention network

    Ilaria Sani et al.
    Primate attention is not limited to a dorsal fronto-parietal network, but includes a ventral temporal node and its dorso-ventral interactions with other attentional areas.

    Entrainment and maintenance of an internal metronome in supplementary motor area

    Jaime Cadena-Valencia et al.
    Temporal rhythms are encoded in the supplementary motor area by firing rate oscillations and rhythmic bursts of gamma-band LFP activity.

    Free-energy simulations reveal molecular mechanism for functional switch of a DNA helicase

    Wen Ma et al.
    Integration of structural bioinformatics and free-energy simulations reveals how a helicase switches its function from unwinding to rezipping DNA, during which a key metastable conformation is predicted and verified by single-molecule measurements.

    Computer-guided design of optimal microbial consortia for immune system modulation

    Richard R Stein et al.
    A computational method is presented that quantifies the effect that specific bacteria in the gut have on the immune system and guides the design of therapeutically potent microbial consortia to cure auto-immune disease.

    Human embryonic lung epithelial tips are multipotent progenitors that can be expanded in vitro as long-term self-renewing organoids

    Marko Z Nikolić et al.
    Improved characterisation of human embryonic lung development highlights human-mouse differences and facilitates the development of defined culture conditions for the expansion of self-renewing, multipotent human lung epithelial progenitor cells.
