    Different promoter affinities account for specificity in MYC-dependent gene regulation

    Francesca Lorenzin et al.
    Differences in promoter affinity and MYC levels explain distinct expression profiles induced by physiological and oncogenic MYC.

    Re-examining the role of Drosophila Sas-4 in centrosome assembly using two-colour-3D-SIM FRAP

    Paul T Conduit et al.
    Building on previous work (Conduit et al., 2014), and contrary to what was previously thought, it is shown that key centrosomal proteins are not recruited to centrosomes as part of large multi-protein assemblies.

    Human kinetochores are swivel joints that mediate microtubule attachments

    Chris A Smith et al.
    The outer domain of the kinetochore can rotate (swivel) around the centromere, and this rather than intra-kinetochore stretching is coupled to anaphase onset.

    A hyperspectral method to assay the microphysiological fates of nanomaterials in histological samples

    Elliott D SoRelle et al.
    A new technique for biodistribution and targeted uptake studies of nanoparticle imaging agents is demonstrated and used to achieve levels of detail that are inaccessible through existing methods.

    The CNS connectome of a tadpole larva of Ciona intestinalis (L.) highlights sidedness in the brain of a chordate sibling

    Kerrianne Ryan et al.
    Serial-section EM analysis uncovers the CNS connectome of a Ciona larva, the second of any entire nervous system, and exposes left-right asymmetries in its synaptic circuits.

    Spontaneous mutations and the origin and maintenance of quantitative genetic variation

    Wen Huang et al.
    Whole genome DNA sequence analysis, genome wide gene expression and complex organismal phenotypes in Drosophila mutation accumulation lines provide a robust estimate of the spontaneous mutation rate and mutational effects.

    Large domains of heterochromatin direct the formation of short mitotic chromosome loops

    Maximilian H Fitz-James et al.
    Large regions of foreign DNA inserted into mammalian chromosomes assemble into H3K9me3-heterochromatin and result in increased condensin loading with organisation into shorter mitotic chromosome loops than endogenous DNA.

    Caenorhabditis elegans nuclear RNAi factor SET-32 deposits the transgenerational histone modification, H3K23me3

    Lianna Schwartz-Orbach et al.
    H3K23me3 is a RNAi-mediated transgenerationally heritable heterochromatin mark in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Regulation of subcellular dendritic synapse specificity by axon guidance cues

    Emily C Sales et al.
    Axon guidance cues restrict sensory neuron synapse formation to a subset of equally acceptable interneuronal dendritic arbors during Drosophila locomotor circuit assembly.

    Fast-backward replay of sequentially memorized items in humans

    Qiaoli Huang et al.
    Serially remembered items are successively reactivated during memory maintenance in the human brain, and replay profiles, temporally compressed and reverse in order, are associated with recency effect in behavioral performance.
