    Modulation of dopamine D1 receptors via histamine H3 receptors is a novel therapeutic target for Huntington's disease

    David Moreno-Delgado et al.
    Progression of Huntington's disease can be slowed by altering dopamine signalling through the Dopamine 1 receptor - Histamine 3 receptor heteromer.

    High-fat diet enhances starvation-induced hyperactivity via sensitizing hunger-sensing neurons in Drosophila

    Rui Huang et al.
    Fruit flies fed with high-fats diets are hyper-sensitive to a hunger hormone AKH and exhibit enhanced food-seeking behavior when starved.

    Circulating myeloid cells invade the central nervous system to mediate cachexia during pancreatic cancer

    Kevin G Burfeind et al.
    Circulating myeloid cells invade the brain during pancreatic cancer, where they accumulate at a unique central nervous system interface and drive anorexia and muscle catabolism.

    Structural basis for the activation of PLC-γ isozymes by phosphorylation and cancer-associated mutations

    Nicole Hajicek et al.
    The high-resolution X-ray crystal structure of PLC-γ1 reveals a unifying model for the regulation of the PLC-γ isozymes.

    Muscle function and homeostasis require cytokine inhibition of AKT activity in Drosophila

    Katrin Kierdorf et al.
    A cytokine partly derived from macrophages is required to promote normal muscle health and metabolism by inhibiting the activity of the insulin signalling pathway in the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster.

    Metabolic signature in nucleus accumbens for anti-depressant-like effects of acetyl-L-carnitine

    Antoine Cherix et al.
    1H-Magnetic resonance spectroscopy at 14T reveals a metabolic signature for anti-depressant-like effects of acetyl-L-carnitine in nucleus accumbens of susceptible mouse.

    Vasohibin1, a new mouse cardiomyocyte IRES trans-acting factor that regulates translation in early hypoxia

    Fransky Hantelys et al.
    In mouse cardiomyocytes, (lymph)angiogenic growth factors are induced during early hypoxia by a translational mechanism involving a new IRES trans-acting factor, vasohibin-1.

    Chronic muscle weakness and mitochondrial dysfunction in the absence of sustained atrophy in a preclinical sepsis model

    Allison M Owen et al.
    Sepsis-induced long-term muscle weakness was reproduced using a refined murine model, which was accompanied by mitochondrial dysfunction in the absence of sustained atrophy, suggesting the promise of mitochondria-targeted post-sepsis therapies.

    Evolutionary loss of foot muscle during development with characteristics of atrophy and no evidence of cell death

    Mai P Tran et al.
    Evolutionary loss of foot muscle in a bipedal rodent shares similarities with skeletal muscle atrophy, which is typically considered a pathological response to injury or disease.

    Obesity-linked suppression of membrane-bound O-acyltransferase 7 (MBOAT7) drives non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

    Robert N Helsley et al.
    Loss of function of membrane-bound O-acyltransferase 7 (MBOAT7), but not transmembrane channel-like 4 (TMC4), promotes hepatic steatosis.
