    Ancient DNA reveals the lost domestication history of South American camelids in Northern Chile and across the Andes

    Paloma Diaz-Maroto et al.
    aDNA revealed a model of domestication where an ancient guanaco population no longer exists, the loss of the ancient vicuña genetic variation in the modern populations, and frequently interbreeding practices.

    MERS-CoV spillover at the camel-human interface

    Gytis Dudas et al.
    MERS-CoV infections in the Arabian Peninsula are the result of several hundred spillover events from viruses circulating in camels into the human population.

    Point of View: Europe’s first and last field trial of gene-edited plants?

    Jean-Denis Faure, Johnathan A Napier
    The reclassification of gene editing as "GM" will impact on European plant sciences, making it more difficult to validate new traits in field trials and drive forward innovation.

    The development of Nanosota-1 as anti-SARS-CoV-2 nanobody drug candidates

    Gang Ye et al.
    Potent and low-cost Nanosota-1 drug candidates block SARS-CoV-2 infections in vitro and in animal models and act preventively and therapeutically.

    A toolbox of nanobodies developed and validated for use as intrabodies and nanoscale immunolabels in mammalian brain neurons

    Jie-Xian Dong et al.
    Nanobodies are developed that target neuronal proteins with restricted subcellular distributions and used as intrabodies to deliver cargo to specific sites within neurons and nanoscale immunolabels for improved imaging resolution.

    Protein sequences bound to mineral surfaces persist into deep time

    Beatrice Demarchi et al.
    A chemically unstable ostrich eggshell peptide survives for at least 3.8 million years at the equator, stabilized by strong mineral interactions.

    How lamina-associated polypeptide 1 (LAP1) activates Torsin

    Brian A Sosa et al.
    LAP1 adopts an AAA+ like fold that, while unable to bind nucleotide, can enhance ATPase activity in the neighboring TorsinA protomer in an unusual heterohexameric ring, via an arginine finger.

    The structure of the endogenous ESX-3 secretion system

    Nicole Poweleit et al.
    The structure of the endogenous ESX-3 secretion system reveals a highly coordinated inner membrane complex and suggests a mechanism for the regulated secretion of ESX substrates.
