    Cellular, circuit and transcriptional framework for modulation of itch in the central amygdala

    Vijay K Samineni et al.
    Circuit and transcriptional analysis shows that genetically defined central amygdala neurons and their projections to the ventral periaqueductal gray mediate behavioral and affective responses to pruritus.

    The crystal structure of bromide-bound GtACR1 reveals a pre-activated state in the transmembrane anion tunnel

    Hai Li et al.
    Substrate-induced structural changes in GtACR1 provide new insight into the chemical mechanism of natural light-gated anion conductance and facilitate its optimization for photoinhibition of neuron firing in optogenetics.

    Bundle-specific associations between white matter microstructure and Aβ and tau pathology in preclinical Alzheimer’s disease

    Alexa Pichet Binette et al.
    White matter microstructure alterations in key bundles affected in Alzheimer's disease are related to amyloid and tau pathology in the preclinical phase of sporadic and autosomal-dominant Alzheimer's disease.

    Autism-associated SHANK3 missense point mutations impact conformational fluctuations and protein turnover at synapses

    Michael Bucher et al.
    Autism-associated SHANK3 missense mutations result in differential protein folding, stability, and intramolecular dynamics affecting its turnover at the synapse.

    HIV-1 uncoating by release of viral cDNA from capsid-like structures in the nucleus of infected cells

    Thorsten G Müller et al.
    HIV-1 capsids enter the host cell nucleus, where they are partially disrupted to release the viral genome upon completion of reverse transcription.

    Targeting a cell surface vitamin D receptor on tumor-associated macrophages in triple-negative breast cancer

    Fernanda I Staquicini et al.
    A peptide motif targeting tumor-infiltrating macrophage in triple-negative breast cancer delays tumor growth and favors an antitumor immune response.

    Mapping the endemicity and seasonality of clinical malaria for intervention targeting in Haiti using routine case data

    Ewan Cameron et al.
    A demonstration of the power of routine case data and statistical modelling to guide the allocation of anti-malarial interventions in a resource-constrained setting.

    Distinct expression requirements and rescue strategies for BEST1 loss- and gain-of-function mutations

    Qingqing Zhao et al.
    BEST1 autosomal dominant loss-of-function mutations surprisingly behave in a dominant-negative manner, whereas gain-of-function mutations exhibit a strong dominant effect that necessitates CRISPR/Cas9-mediated suppression of the endogenous mutant allele in gene therapy.

    Presynaptic inhibition of dopamine neurons controls optimistic bias

    Nobuhiro Yamagata et al.
    The subcellular activity of presynaptic terminals of dopamine neurons shapes the reward magnitude and memory specificity.

    A non-genetic, cell cycle-dependent mechanism of platinum resistance in lung adenocarcinoma

    Alvaro Gonzalez Rajal et al.
    Platinum chemotherapy resistance is a complex process involving multiple signalling pathways and a novel, non-genetic, cell cycle-dependent mechanism that promotes tumour regrowth and highlights potential complications for combination therapies in human lung adenocarcinoma.
