    A covariation analysis reveals elements of selectivity in quorum sensing systems

    Samantha Wellington Miranda et al.
    The extension of covariation analyses to proteins that coevolve but do not physically interact enabled identification of selectivity residues in quorum sensing proteins, providing insight into the evolution of signaling systems.

    A novel decoy strategy for polymyxin resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii

    Jaeeun Park et al.
    Outer membrane vesicles serve as decoys to reduce the chance of direct polymyxin B (PMB) binding to cells, which partly explains why many clinical isolates and microbial communities can be protected against PMB treatment.

    Neuropeptide ACP facilitates lipid oxidation and utilization during long-term flight in locusts

    Li Hou et al.
    CRISPR/Cas 9 technology and multiple-omics study reveal an essential regulatory role of neuropeptide ACP in lipid utilization related to prolonged flight of locusts.

    Structurally distributed surface sites tune allosteric regulation

    James W McCormick et al.
    Deep mutational scanning of a synthetic allosteric chimera revealed that a sparse set of mutations on the protein surface improved regulation.

    Fast and flexible estimation of effective migration surfaces

    Joseph Marcus et al.
    Fast and flexible estimation of effective migration surfaces (FEEMS) is a new statistical method that can quickly infer and visualize patterns of migration from genetic data with spatial coordinates.

    Sensory coding and the causal impact of mouse cortex in a visual decision

    Peter Zatka-Haas et al.
    Local sensory signals in visual and frontal cortex play a causal role in task performance, while widespread dorsal cortical signals correlating with movement reflect processes that do not.

    Distinct forms of synaptic plasticity during ascending vs descending control of medial olivocochlear efferent neurons

    Gabriel E Romero, Laurence O Trussell
    In a fast brainstem relay controlling hearing sensitivity, descending synaptic control from midbrain provides the dominant source of excitation, due to a distinct form of synaptic plasticity.

    Plasmodium falciparum K13 mutations in Africa and Asia impact artemisinin resistance and parasite fitness

    Barbara H Stokes et al.
    Plasmodium falciparum K13 mutations confer resistance to the antimalarial artemisinin in Asian and African parasites, with most gene-edited mutant K13 African parasite lines showing a fitness cost that may predict slow dissemination of artemisinin resistance in high-transmission settings.
