    Fibrinogen αC-subregions critically contribute blood clot fibre growth, mechanical stability, and resistance to fibrinolysis

    Helen R McPherson et al.
    Fibrinogen, a key protein involved in blood coagulation, contains a disordered and previously poorly characterised region called αC that plays a critical role in fibrin fibre growth and clot stability.

    SLC1A5 provides glutamine and asparagine necessary for bone development in mice

    Deepika Sharma et al.
    Osteoblasts utilize an elegant mechanism by which they obtain and subsequently synthesize the requisite amino acids to support osteoblast differentiation and bone formation.

    6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGD), a key checkpoint in reprogramming of regulatory T cells metabolism and function

    Saeed Daneshmandi et al.
    6-Phosphogluconate dehydrogenase controls regulatory T cells metabolism with shifts to Th1, Th2, and Th17 phenotypes.

    Pathogenic LRRK2 control of primary cilia and Hedgehog signaling in neurons and astrocytes of mouse brain

    Shahzad S Khan et al.
    Striatal cholinergic interneurons and astrocytes lose cilia and show dysregulation of Hedgehog signaling in mice with a Parkinson's disease-associated, G2019S LRRK2 mutation or upon loss of PPM1H phosphatase specific for LRRK2-phosphorylated Rab GTPases.

    Excitatory and inhibitory receptors utilize distinct post- and trans-synaptic mechanisms in vivo

    Taisuke Miyazaki et al.
    Excitatory and inhibitory postsynaptic receptors are maintained at corresponded postsynaptic sites with the different dependency of presynaptic neurons in the mature mammalian brain.

    NHE6 depletion corrects ApoE4-mediated synaptic impairments and reduces amyloid plaque load

    Theresa Pohlkamp et al.
    Genetic disruption of sodium-hydrogen exchanger 6 (NHE6) reduces amyloid plaques in humanized Alzheimer's disease mouse models and restores normal synaptic responses to neuromodulatory input in humanized ApoE4-expressing animals.

    Myopalladin knockout mice develop cardiac dilation and show a maladaptive response to mechanical pressure overload

    Maria Carmela Filomena et al.
    Ablation of the sarcomeric protein myopalladin (MYPN), associated with human cardiomyopathies, results in dilated cardiomyopathy, which is severely aggravated by biomechanical stress, suggesting that skeletal myopathy patients carrying MYPN loss-of-function mutations may develop cardiomyopathy under conditions of cardiac stress.

    Electron cryo-tomography reveals the subcellular architecture of growing axons in human brain organoids

    Patrick C Hoffmann et al.
    Combining cerebral organoid technology with cryo-correlative microscopy reveals the organization of cytoskeleton, membrane compartments, and protein synthesis machinery contributing to the rapid expansion of developing human axons.

    Visual pursuit behavior in mice maintains the pursued prey on the retinal region with least optic flow

    Carl D Holmgren et al.
    Digital reconstruction of environment combined with eye and head-tracking enabled the process of prey-detection and capture to be seen from the freely moving mouse’s point-of-view and shows the exact visual-field and retinal location mice use when chasing prey and the advantage.

    Stimulation of hypothalamic oxytocin neurons suppresses colorectal cancer progression in mice

    Susu Pan et al.
    Assessments using chemogenetic and pharmacological approaches reveal that modulation of the activities of oxytocin neurons in the hypothalamus of the central nervous system could inhibit colorectal cancer progression in mice.
