    How oscillating aerodynamic forces explain the timbre of the hummingbird’s hum and other animals in flapping flight

    Ben J Hightower et al.
    A first-principles acoustics model reveals how the acoustic spectrum generated by flapping wings originates from oscillating aerodynamic forces, and is validated by in vivo aerodynamic force measurements and acoustic holography.

    Chemical structure-guided design of dynapyrazoles, cell-permeable dynein inhibitors with a unique mode of action

    Jonathan B Steinman et al.
    Analyses of the chemical structure of ciliobrevins led to dynein inhibitors with improved properties and higher potency.

    Bioacoustics: Characterizing the hum of hovering animals

    Robert Niese
    The sounds of flying animals, such as the hum of a hummingbird as it hovers, are influenced by the unique forces generated by the flapping of their wings.

    Quantitative mapping of transcriptome and proteome dynamics during polarization of human iPSC-derived neurons

    Feline W Lindhout et al.
    A dynamic qualitative and quantitative map of human iPSC-derived neuronal stem cells transitioning into polarized neurons with the identification and characterization of a previously unrecognized axon developmental stage.

    Preservation of three-dimensional anatomy in phosphatized fossil arthropods enriches evolutionary inference

    Achim H Schwermann et al.
    X-ray imaging reveals well-preserved internal characters in mineralized arthropods from the Paleogene, urging the reexamination of previously neglected fossil collections.

    Burst muscle performance predicts the speed, acceleration, and turning performance of Anna’s hummingbirds

    Paolo S Segre et al.
    Maneuverability is thought to be limited by either intrinsic constraints or physiological capacity, and automated tracking of flying hummingbirds reveals that muscle capacity explains much of the variation in their flight trajectories.

    A molecular portrait of maternal sepsis from Byzantine Troy

    Alison M Devault et al.
    Mineralized placental tissue from Late Byzantine Troy enables the detailed reconstruction of genomes of mixed bacterial species responsible for maternal sepsis in the ancient world.

    Kinesin-4 KIF21B limits microtubule growth to allow rapid centrosome polarization in T cells

    Peter Jan Hooikaas et al.
    Kinesin-4 KIF21B promotes rapid reorientation of the microtubule network during formation of immunological synapse in T cells by acting as a pausing and catastrophe-inducing factor that keeps microtubules short.

    SLAMF6​ deficiency augments tumor killing and skews toward an effector phenotype revealing it as a novel T cell checkpoint

    Emma Hajaj et al.
    SLAMF6 is an inhibitory checkpoint of T cells, the lack of which leads to better tumor control, suggesting a new immunotherapy target.

    Optogenetic dissection of mitotic spindle positioning in vivo

    Lars-Eric Fielmich et al.
    New germline gene expression, knockout, and optogenetic tools reveal essential roles for Gα-GPR-1,2/Pins as a regulatable membrane anchor and LIN-5/NuMA as an activator of cortical dynein in mitotic spindle positioning.
