    The paraventricular thalamus is a critical mediator of top-down control of cue-motivated behavior in rats

    Paolo Campus et al.
    A top-down circuit generating from the prelimbic cortex and projecting to the paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus mediates individual differences in cue-elicited responding by affecting subcortical dopamine-dependent incentive learning.

    Continuous lateral oscillations as a core mechanism for taxis in Drosophila larvae

    Antoine Wystrach et al.
    Analysis of crawling Drosophila larva and agent based simulations suggest that an intrinsic rhythm rather than distinct actions underlie taxis behaviour, providing a core mechanism on which both sensory and memory pathways can converge.

    Brood care in a 100-million-year-old scale insect

    Bo Wang et al.
    The discovery of the earliest direct evidence of brood care in insects demonstrates a remarkably conserved egg-brooding reproductive strategy within scale insects in stasis for nearly 100 million years.

    Microtubules provide directional information for core PCP function

    Maja Matis et al.
    The Fat/Dachsous/Four-jointed (Ft/Ds/Fj) system provides a spatial signal to organize core PCP proteins via the polarization of microtubules.

    Importin-9 wraps around the H2A-H2B core to act as nuclear importer and histone chaperone

    Abhilash Padavannil et al.
    In an unusual complex that is not dissociated by RanGTP alone, Importin-9 sequesters the H2A-H2B core from promiscuous interactions.

    A recombinant BBSome core complex and how it interacts with ciliary cargo

    Björn Udo Klink et al.
    Six BBS proteins form a core BBSome transport vehicle, which is sufficient for recognizing membrane proteins for transport into the ciliary compartment.

    The structure of the core NuRD repression complex provides insights into its interaction with chromatin

    Christopher J Millard et al.
    An extensive interface between the proteins RBBP4 and MTA1 defines the three-dimensional architecture of the core NuRD complex and determines the recruitment of the complex to chromatin.
  1. Point of View: Competency-based assessment for the training of PhD students and early-career scientists

    Michael F Verderame et al.
    A method to assess the training of scientists, based on a set of 10 core competencies, is proposed.

    Cytokine receptor-Eb1 interaction couples cell polarity and fate during asymmetric cell division

    Cuie Chen et al.
    A separation-of-function mutation reveals that a niche ligand receptor Dome functions in spindle orientation during asymmetric stem cell division by directly binding to Eb1, independent of its role in downstream JAK-STAT signaling.
