    Echolocating toothed whales use ultra-fast echo-kinetic responses to track evasive prey

    Heather Vance et al.
    Echolocating toothed whales can detect and react to sudden prey movements during close approaches with speeds similar to ultra-fast tracking responses in human vision.

    Transcription initiation at a consensus bacterial promoter proceeds via a ‘bind-unwind-load-and-lock’ mechanism

    Abhishek Mazumder et al.
    Single-molecule fluorescence experiments reveal transcription initiation proceeds via a 'bind-unwind-load-and-lock' mechanism where promoter DNA unwinds outside the RNA polymerase (RNAP) cleft, the unwound template-DNA loads into the cleft, and RNAP 'locks' the template-DNA by closing the RNAP clamp module.

    First-principles model of optimal translation factors stoichiometry

    Jean-Benoît Lalanne, Gene-Wei Li
    A parsimonious biophysical model correctly predicts the conserved expression stoichiometry of core bacterial mRNA translation factors, providing intuitive and quantitative design principles for in vivo pathway construction.

    Myogenin controls via AKAP6 non-centrosomal microtubule-organizing center formation at the nuclear envelope

    Robert Becker et al.
    Myogenin promotes centrosome attenuation and establishes the nuclear envelope as the dominant microtubule organization center via the scaffold protein AKAP6, which is required for the recruitment of centrosomal proteins.

    Par3 cooperates with Sanpodo for the assembly of Notch clusters following asymmetric division of Drosophila sensory organ precursor cells

    Elise Houssin et al.
    Baz/Par3 and Sanpdo are required for clustering and activation of Notch receptors to allow intra-lineage private communication following asymmetric division of Drosophila epithelial cells.

    Evolutionary dynamics of circular RNAs in primates

    Gabriela Santos-Rodriguez et al.
    An analysis of the genomic features that distinguish conserved from species-specific circular RNAs reveals that the expansion of the downstream intron by insertion of retrotransposons stabilizes circular RNAs' production across 30+ millions years of evolution.

    Gut bacterial aggregates as living gels

    Brandon H Schlomann, Raghuveer Parthasarathy
    A theory of gut bacterial aggregation produces a cluster size distribution that matches that of several strains observed in zebrafish, suggesting principles generally applicable to the vertebrate gut.

    Mutational analysis to explore long-range allosteric couplings involved in a pentameric channel receptor pre-activation and activation

    Solène N Lefebvre et al.
    A pentameric channel-receptor was studied by combining allosteric mutations, electrophysiology, fluorescent reporters and normal mode analysis, to dissect the long-range allosteric couplings specifically involved in its pre-activation and activation.

    Structural variability and concerted motions of the T cell receptor – CD3 complex

    Prithvi R Pandey et al.
    The orientation of the TCR extracellular domain is highly variable and coupled to characteristic structural changes throughout the TCR - CD3 complex.
