    Mapping the dynamics of force transduction at cell–cell junctions of epithelial clusters

    Mei Rosa Ng et al.
    The integrated quantification of spontaneous dynamic cell-cell force transmissions at both multi-cellular and subcellular scales enables spatiotemporal correlations of stress distribution with biomolecules in small cell clusters.

    Efficient mate finding in planktonic copepods swimming in turbulence

    François-Gaël Michalec et al.
    Calanoid copepods achieve efficient mate finding in turbulence through active swimming and turbulence advection, indicating that reproduction is not restricted to spatial and temporal windows of calm hydrodynamic conditions.

    Membrane voltage dysregulation driven by metabolic dysfunction underlies bactericidal activity of aminoglycosides

    Giancarlo Noe Bruni, Joel M Kralj
    Aminoglycosides are a class of antibiotics that can kill Escherichia coli by building up internal voltage through disrupting the normal consumption of ATP.

    Control of brown adipose tissue adaptation to nutrient stress by the activin receptor ALK7

    Patricia Marmol et al.
    The activin receptor ALK7 regulates the adaptation of brown adipose tissue to nutrient availability by preventing over-activation of signaling pathways induced by fasting, allowing appropriate response to cold exposure.

    DASC, a sensitive classifier for measuring discrete early stages in clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Xinxin Wang et al.
    A new user-intervention-free classification, using single-fluorescent markers, measures conventionally unmeasureable phenotypes in early stages during clathrin-mediated endocytosis.

    A model for focal seizure onset, propagation, evolution, and progression

    Jyun-you Liou et al.
    Usage-dependent inhibition breakdown and neural adaptation underpins the key spatiotemporal dynamics of human focal seizures.

    Vocal development in a Waddington landscape

    Yayoi Teramoto et al.
    An integrated landscape framework shows how the coordinated changes in vocal apparatus, muscles, nervous system, and social interaction together influence the trajectory of vocal development.

    Influenza-virus membrane fusion by cooperative fold-back of stochastically induced hemagglutinin intermediates

    Tijana Ivanovic et al.
    Long-lived intermediate states formed by glycoprotein catalysts are an essential part of the process used by influenza virus particles to infect cells.
