    Sucrose intensity coding and decision-making in rat gustatory cortices

    Esmeralda Fonseca et al.
    The neural representation of perceived sucrose intensity was contained in the firing rate and spike-timing of a 'small' population of neurons distributed across the Insula and Orbitofrontal taste cortices.

    Random-sequence genetic oligomer pools display an innate potential for ligation and recombination

    Hannes Mutschler et al.
    Random sequence RNA pools display an innate capacity for ligation and recombination, enabling them to “bootstrap” themselves towards higher compositional, informational and structural complexity.

    Systematic identification of mutations and copy number alterations associated with cancer patient prognosis

    Joan C Smith, Jason M Sheltzer
    Gene copy number provides more prognostic information than gene mutation status in cancer.

    Tau monomer encodes strains

    Apurwa M Sharma et al.
    Tau monomer from aggregate-containing cell models and tauopathy brains adopts discrete structures that act as templates, dictating the conformation of distinct strains that result from its seeding activity.

    HIPPO signaling resolves embryonic cell fate conflicts during establishment of pluripotency in vivo

    Tristan Frum et al.
    HIPPO signaling antagonizes the apical domain of polarized cells, driving cell internalization, regulated gene expression, and cell fate change during formation of pluripotent stem cell progenitors in the mouse embryo.

    Genome-wide Estrogen Receptor-α activation is sustained, not cyclical

    Andrew N Holding et al.
    Activation of the Estrogen Receptor by estra-2-diol results in sustained binding and the previously described cyclical response kinetics are likely an artefact of observing a highly variable process without replicates.

    Splicing factors Sf3A2 and Prp31 have direct roles in mitotic chromosome segregation

    Claudia Pellacani et al.
    Extensive cytological and biochemical analyses show that the conserved Sf3A2 and Prp31 splicing factors bind microtubules and the Ndc80 complex, playing direct mitotic functions in both Drosophila and human mitosis.

    Subunit exchange enhances information retention by CaMKII in dendritic spines

    Dilawar Singh, Upinder Singh Bhalla
    Due to subunit-exchange, CaMKII can store information at diverse time-scales and might play a central role in the memory maintenance.

    The CryoEM structure of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae ribosome maturation factor Rea1

    Piotr Sosnowski et al.
    The high-resolution structure of Rea1, an essential ribosome maturation factor in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, explains how the ATPase domain is regulated and reveals the linker domain, the mechanical element carrying out ribosome remodeling.
