    An arbitrary-spectrum spatial visual stimulator for vision research

    Katrin Franke et al.
    Towards a community effort, we here present a flexible yet standardised visual stimulator design based on open hardware and software.

    A β-carotene-binding protein carrying a red pigment regulates body-color transition between green and black in locusts

    Meiling Yang et al.
    Body color change of locusts reveals a new 'palette effect' mechanism by which the red βCBP–β-carotene pigment complex acts as a switch to coordinate between black and green coloration.

    Rod nuclear architecture determines contrast transmission of the retina and behavioral sensitivity in mice

    Kaushikaram Subramanian et al.
    Establishing retinal contrast transmission as a novel determinant of mammalian fitness, this research adds functional significance to a prominent exception of nuclear organization, previously described in nocturnal rod photoreceptor cells.

    Live-cell imaging reveals enhancer-dependent Sox2 transcription in the absence of enhancer proximity

    Jeffrey M Alexander et al.
    Sox2 transcription is not correlated with spatial proximity of its essential regulatory enhancer in embryonic stem cells, suggesting gene transcription is not limited to periods of direct enhancer-promoter contact.

    Mitotic fidelity requires transgenerational action of a testis-restricted HP1

    Mia T Levine et al.
    Analysis of a spermiogenesis protein reveals a new chromatin requirement for synchrony between maternal DNA packaged in the egg and sperm-packaged paternal DNA in the first embryonic mitosis in Drosophila melanogaster.

    Visualizing the functional architecture of the endocytic machinery

    Andrea Picco et al.
    A combination of light and electron microscopy data provide new insights into the dynamic architecture and the function of the endocytic protein machinery in relation to membrane shape changes in vivo.
    1. Neuroscience

    Visual mode switching learned through repeated adaptation to color

    Yanjun Li et al.
    The visual system can learn to rapidly adjust itself through experience, switching modes to stabilize vision perception and optimize perceptual processes.

    Extended field-of-view ultrathin microendoscopes for high-resolution two-photon imaging with minimal invasiveness

    Andrea Antonini et al.
    Aberration correction using 3D microprinting in ultrathin microendoscopes allows two-photon imaging of large neuronal networks with homogeneously high spatial resolution and minimal invasiveness in the deep mouse brain.

    Complementary shifts in photoreceptor spectral tuning unlock the full adaptive potential of ultraviolet vision in birds

    Matthew B Toomey et al.
    Birds that see ultraviolet light tune the sensitivity of their short-wavelength photoreceptors with colored filters to maximize the number of colors they can see.

    A new role for histone demethylases in the maintenance of plant genome integrity

    Javier Antunez-Sanchez et al.
    Plants reset chromatin marks during sexual reproduction to safeguard the stability of the genome.
