Glutamatergic projections from basolateral to central amygdala, implicated in neuropsychiatric disorders, develop rapidly during early postnatal period and their development is modulated via endogenously active kainate receptors.
Global brain transduction of the instability-prone Mecp2 transgene by systemic AAV-PHP.eB administration is safe and effective in protecting male and female Mecp2 mutant mice from the Rett syndrome disease phenotype.
Application of laser-capture microdissection to planarian intestinal tissue provides a new tool for analysis of tissue-specific gene expression in flatworms, and a new resource to advance investigations of gastrointestinal regeneration.
Cryo-EM structures of the ClpXP protease reveal how protein substrates are bound, show how spiral ClpX hexamers bind symmetry-mismatched heptameric ClpP rings, and suggest mechanisms for processive substrate translocation.
Model-based analyses of human behaviour and neural activity show that representations of concurrent task-sets emerge by merging together representations of individual stimulus-response associations that occur in temporal proximity.
Lifelong HAO1 knockout was safe and without clinical phenotype in an identified healthy woman, de-risking a rare disease therapeutic approach through the power of naturally occurring human genetic variation.
