    HIPPO signaling resolves embryonic cell fate conflicts during establishment of pluripotency in vivo

    Tristan Frum et al.
    HIPPO signaling antagonizes the apical domain of polarized cells, driving cell internalization, regulated gene expression, and cell fate change during formation of pluripotent stem cell progenitors in the mouse embryo.

    Acknowledging selection at sub-organismal levels resolves controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms

    Wenying Shou
    Building on previous work (Momeni et al., 2013), it is shown that recognizing the hierarchical organization of biological systems resolves the ongoing controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms.

    Implications of being born late in the active season for growth, fattening, torpor use, winter survival and fecundity

    Britta Mahlert et al.
    Being born late in the active season is associated with a fast life history in a hibernating species, the garden dormouse (Eliomys quercinus).

    Dynamics of the IFT machinery at the ciliary tip

    Alexander Chien et al.
    During intraflagellar transport (IFT), kinesin-II dissociates from IFT trains at the flagellar tip and its diffusion in flagella serves as a negative feedback mechanism that facilitates flagellar length control in Chlamydomonas.

    Arabidopsis plants perform arithmetic division to prevent starvation at night

    Antonio Scialdone et al.
    Plants implement arithmetic division to optimize use of carbohydrate reserves and thus maintain metabolism and growth at night.

    Chemogenetic inhibition of the medial prefrontal cortex reverses the effects of REM sleep loss on sucrose consumption

    Kristopher McEown et al.
    Loss of REM sleep increases sucrose and fat consumption in mice; and inhibiting the prefrontal cortex reverses the increased consumption of sucrose, but not fat, following REM sleep loss.
  1. Point of View: Four erroneous beliefs thwarting more trustworthy research

    Mark Yarborough et al.
    Strategies to improve public trust in biomedical research are being hindered by a scientific mindset that stifles interest in reform.
