    Synergy between RecBCD subunits is essential for efficient DNA unwinding

    Rani Zananiri et al.
    A new optical tweezers assay sheds light on the mechanism of cooperation and force generation by the subunits of RecBCD, critical for the repair of double strand breaks in bacteria.

    The inhibitory microcircuit of the substantia nigra provides feedback gain control of the basal ganglia output

    Jennifer Brown et al.
    Negative feedback signals within the substantia nigra regulate the output of the basal ganglia, with implications for disorders such as Parkinson's disease.

    Conformational and dynamic plasticity in substrate-binding proteins underlies selective transport in ABC importers

    Marijn de Boer et al.
    Selective import via bacterial ABC importers is facilitated by a hitherto unrecognized complexity in the conformational dynamics of the substrate-binding proteins.

    Dipolar extracellular potentials generated by axonal projections

    Thomas McColgan et al.
    Action potentials propagating in axon bundles with bifurcating and terminating fibers cause strong and far-reaching extracellular potentials.

    Global morphogenetic flow is accurately predicted by the spatial distribution of myosin motors

    Sebastian J Streichan et al.
    Epithelial tissue remodeling during Drosophila embryonic development is quantitatively described by a simple law relating myosin activity and cell flow.

    Atypical calcium regulation of the PKD2-L1 polycystin ion channel

    Paul G DeCaen et al.
    Outward calcium ion currents desensitize the human PKD2-L1 ion channel via a mechanism that is independent of cytosolic motifs.

    The modulation of neural gain facilitates a transition between functional segregation and integration in the brain

    James M Shine et al.
    The flexible network architecture of the brain is sensitive to the modulation of neural gain, which may be mediated by ascending arousal nuclei, such as the noradrenergic locus coeruleus.

    Building accurate sequence-to-affinity models from high-throughput in vitro protein-DNA binding data using FeatureREDUCE

    Todd R Riley et al.
    A biophysically principled algorithm can build quantitative models of protein-DNA binding specificity of unprecedented accuracy from a leading type of high-throughput in vitro binding data.
