    Evolution of the hypoxia-sensitive cells involved in amniote respiratory reflexes

    Dorit Hockman et al.
    Embryonic fate-mapping approaches in zebrafish, Xenopus and lamprey illuminate the evolutionary origins of carotid body glomus cells and pulmonary neuroendocrine cells.

    A synaptic F-actin network controls otoferlin-dependent exocytosis in auditory inner hair cells

    Philippe FY Vincent et al.
    A synaptic F-actin network tightly controls the flow of synaptic vesicles during exocytosis at the inner hair cell ribbons.

    Cell-intrinsic mechanisms of temperature compensation in a grasshopper sensory receptor neuron

    Frederic A Roemschied et al.
    The firing rates of neurons in the grasshopper auditory system are surprisingly robust to changes in temperature, and cell-intrinsic mechanisms are sufficient to explain this temperature insensitivity.

    GIPC proteins negatively modulate Plexind1 signaling during vascular development

    Jorge Carretero-Ortega et al.
    Zebrafish mutants and human endothelial cell experiments reveal that GIPC family endocytic adaptors bind to the Semaphorin receptor PLEXIND1, a critical regulator of vascular development, to negatively modulate its signaling.

    Global biogeographic sampling of bacterial secondary metabolism

    Zachary Charlop-Powers et al.
    Pyro-sequencing of two genes involved in bacterial secondary metabolism provides new insights into the rich reservoir of biologically active small molecules found in environmental bacteria.

    Membrane properties specialize mammalian inner hair cells for frequency or intensity encoding

    Stuart L Johnson
    Mammalian primary sensory inner hair cells play an active role in auditory information processing, such that they show a preference for either timing or intensity coding.
