    Human-specific ARHGAP11B induces hallmarks of neocortical expansion in developing ferret neocortex

    Nereo Kalebic et al.
    Expression of human-specific gene ARHGAP11B in the developing ferret neocortex leads to an increase in abundance of neural progenitor cells, which results in neocortex expansion.

    Mapping influenza transmission in the ferret model to transmission in humans

    Michael G Buhnerkempe et al.
    Influenza transmission among ferrets correlates strongly with transmission among humans, so the ferret model for influenza transmission is a valid tool for pandemic potential in humans.

    Multi-scale mapping along the auditory hierarchy using high-resolution functional UltraSound in the awake ferret

    Célian Bimbard et al.
    Functional UltraSound imaging allows mapping tonotopic organisation in multiple auditory subcortical and cortical brain structures with an unprecedented spatial functional resolution, while giving access to long-distance top-down connectivity pattern from frontal cortex to auditory cortex.

    HA stabilization promotes replication and transmission of swine H1N1 gamma influenza viruses in ferrets

    Meng Hu et al.
    Infection experiments in ferrets reveal swine influenza viruses need their hemagglutinin antigen to become stabilized for transmissibility, adding a new property to consider when triaging field isolates for pandemic potential.

    Interpretive monitoring in the caudate nucleus

    Marianna Yanike, Vincent P Ferrera
    The caudate region of the brain signals the context in which sensory evidence is evaluated, helping animals to adapt their behavior to changing conditions.

    Receptor-mediated dimerization of JAK2 FERM domains is required for JAK2 activation

    Ryan D Ferrao et al.
    An intracellular cytokine receptor 'switch' motif is critical for the dimerization of JAK2 and activation of the JAK2 kinase.

    Transdifferentiation mediated tumor suppression by the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor IRE-1 in C. elegans

    Mor Levi-Ferber et al.
    IRE-1 manipulates tumor cell identity to restore apoptosis sensitivity and suppress an aggressive germline tumor in C. elegans.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The fascinating and secret wild life of the budding yeast S. cerevisiae

    Gianni Liti
    The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has informed our understanding of molecular biology and genetics for decades, and learning more about its natural history could fuel a new era of functional and evolutionary studies of this classic model organism.

    Complexity of frequency receptive fields predicts tonotopic variability across species

    Quentin Gaucher et al.
    The A1 of ferrets and mice show similar tonotopic organizations, with neurons preferring a single frequency being more precisely organized into a tonotopic map than multipeaked neurons.

    Neurodevelopmental Disorders: Beyond protein-coding genes

    Anna Lozano-Ureña, Sacri R Ferrón
    A long non-coding RNA called lnc-NR2F1 regulates several neuronal genes, including some involved in autism and intellectual disabilities.
