    Research: NIH peer review percentile scores are poorly predictive of grant productivity

    Ferric C Fang et al.
    Peer review scores were poorly predictive of research project success in this large dataset, suggesting that reviewers cannot reliably predict which meritorious applications are most likely to be productive.

    Gating mechanisms during actin filament elongation by formins

    Fikret Aydin et al.
    Formins slow elongation of actin filament by either sterically blocking the addition of actin subunits or flattening the helical twist of the filament end.

    Co-targeting the tumor endothelium and P-selectin-expressing glioblastoma cells leads to a remarkable therapeutic outcome

    Shiran Ferber et al.
    Treatment with precision nanomedicine in combination with an anti-angiogenic peptide enhance anti-tumor efficacy while minimizing toxicities in a pre-clinical glioblastoma model, making this approach a promising and important therapeutic alternative for patients.

    Kinetic modeling predicts a stimulatory role for ribosome collisions at elongation stall sites in bacteria

    Michael A Ferrin, Arvind R Subramaniam
    Collision between ribosomes can cause dissociation of stalled ribosomes from messenger RNAs during the process of mRNA translation.

    Anatomical organization of presubicular head-direction circuits

    Patricia Preston-Ferrer et al.
    Presubicular head-direction circuits are cell-type specific, with long-range projections reaching the 'grid-cell area' medial entorhinal cortex.

    Proteolytic maturation of α2δ controls the probability of synaptic vesicular release

    Laurent Ferron et al.
    Proteolytic maturation of auxiliary α2δ subunits of voltage-gated calcium channels increases neuronal communication by controlling the synaptic release of neurotransmitter.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The secret lives of Drosophila flies

    Therese Ann Markow
    After decades of intensive research, D. melanogaster and its relatives could provide important tools for investigating future biological questions about human health and environmental change, but only if we better understand their natural history.
