    Encoding and control of orientation to airflow by a set of Drosophila fan-shaped body neurons

    Timothy A Currier et al.
    Electrophysiology identifies a population of fan-shaped body neurons that encode airflow in two directions relative to the fly midline and whose silencing disrupts proper orientation to airflow.

    MYC regulates ribosome biogenesis and mitochondrial gene expression programs through its interaction with host cell factor–1

    Tessa M Popay et al.
    Interaction of oncoprotein transcription factor MYC with chromatin-associated protein host cell factor–1 controls expression of genes important for ribosome biogenesis and mitochondrial vigor, loss of which promotes tumor regression.

    Structure of bacterial phospholipid transporter MlaFEDB with substrate bound

    Nicolas Coudray et al.
    Structure of MlaFEDB ABC transporter with substrate bound in the outward-open pocket of MlaE provides mechanistic insights into lipid transport within the Gram-negative bacterial cell envelope.

    Correlating STED and synchrotron XRF nano-imaging unveils cosegregation of metals and cytoskeleton proteins in dendrites

    Florelle Domart et al.
    The development of high-resolution correlative imaging of metals and proteins reveals the interaction of copper and zinc with the synaptic architecture of neurons.

    Bacterial symbiont subpopulations have different roles in a deep-sea symbiosis

    Tjorven Hinzke et al.
    Physiological differentiation during symbiosis leads to division of labor between smaller and larger cells in an uncultured bacterial tubeworm symbiont population and results in remarkable metabolic diversity and complexity.

    Structural and mechanistic basis of the EMC-dependent biogenesis of distinct transmembrane clients

    Lakshmi E Miller-Vedam et al.
    Structure-function characterization of the EMC's cytoplasmic, transmembrane, and lumenal domains reveal features critical for terminal helix insertion and a specialized role for the lumenal domain in polytopic membrane protein biogenesis.

    Constitutive activation of cellular immunity underlies the evolution of resistance to infection in Drosophila

    Alexandre B Leitão et al.
    Single-cell transcriptomics of immune cells demonstrates that populations evolve inducible defences when infection rates are low and constitutive defences when infection is common.

    Mechanistic insights into volatile anesthetic modulation of K2P channels

    Aboubacar Wague et al.
    The volatile anesthetic isoflurane directly binds to the transmembrane domains of the TREK1 channel to allosterically modulate its function.

    Graded titin cleavage progressively reduces tension and uncovers the source of A-band stability in contracting muscle

    Yong Li et al.
    Elastic forces generated by the giant protein titin define both passive and active tension of skeletal muscle fibers and protect the sarcomeric myosin filaments from severe disruption during contraction.

    Dynamics of diffusive cell signaling relays

    Paul B Dieterle et al.
    The collective dynamics of cell signaling relays are at once dramatically sensitive to the system dimensionality and insensitive to many biological details.
