    Integrated culturing, modeling and transcriptomics uncovers complex interactions and emergent behavior in a three-species synthetic gut community

    Kevin D'hoe et al.
    Human gut bacteria alter their metabolism in response to each other's presence, which causes their community dynamics to deviate from predictions that are based on mono-culture data.
  1. Episode 51: November 2018

    In this episode, we hear about mammals moving to the suburbs, LSD and the brain, publication bias, contagious cancers, and the effect of climate change on mosquito-borne diseases.

    OSCA/TMEM63 are an evolutionarily conserved family of mechanically activated ion channels

    Swetha E Murthy et al.
    A family of proteins (OSCA/TMEM63) that encode mechanosensitive ion channels has been characterized in plants, flies, and mammals.

    Shear-induced damped oscillations in an epithelium depend on actomyosin contraction and E-cadherin cell adhesion

    Ehsan Sadeghipour et al.
    Cell movement toward and away from the midline of an epithelium over tens of hours are caused by spontaneous or externally-applied shear forces to eliminate force imbalances within the tissue.

    Dynamic neuromuscular remodeling precedes motor-unit loss in a mouse model of ALS

    Éric Martineau et al.
    Motor axons undergo dynamic branch-specific changes for weeks before complete neuronal degeneration in a model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, highlighting the importance of peripheral factors, intrinsic and extrinsic to motoneurons.

    Multiple tumor suppressors regulate a HIF-dependent negative feedback loop via ISGF3 in human clear cell renal cancer

    Lili Liao et al.
    Major secondary tumor suppressors in kidney cancer are required to maintain the activity of a tumor suppressive transcription factor after the loss of the primary tumor suppressor VHL.

    Epitope resurfacing on dengue virus-like particle vaccine preparation to induce broad neutralizing antibody

    Wen-Fan Shen et al.
    Despite size heterogeneity, an epitope-resurfaced mature-form dengue VLP has the potential to induce quaternary structure-recognizing broad cross-reactive neutralizing antibodies.

    Bid maintains mitochondrial cristae structure and function and protects against cardiac disease in an integrative genomics study

    Christi T Salisbury-Ruf et al.
    An integrative approach, combining genetic mouse and large-scale human genetics studies, was used to reveal a novel role for the Bcl-2 protein Bid in maintenance of mitochondrial function that alters susceptibility to myocardial infarction.

    Decoupling from yolk sac is required for extraembryonic tissue spreading in the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita

    Francesca Caroti et al.
    Extraembryonic tissue spreading in the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita requires mechanical decoupling from the underlying yolk sac.
