    Genetic and environmental perturbations lead to regulatory decoherence

    Amanda Lea et al.
    Infection and metabolic syndrome lead to a loss of molecular regulation, and changes in molecular correlations are under genetic control as revealed by the presence of correlation quantitative trait loci.

    TMC1 is an essential component of a leak channel that modulates tonotopy and excitability of auditory hair cells in mice

    Shuang Liu et al.
    Other than its function in mechanotransduction, TMC1 is indispensable for action potential firing of auditory hair cells by mediating a leak conductance that alters tonotopically along the cochlea coil.

    LEAFY maintains apical stem cell activity during shoot development in the fern Ceratopteris richardii 

    Andrew RG Plackett et al.
    Transgenic analysis reveals a role for LEAFY in ferns that supports a trajectory from general to floral meristem-specific function as land plants evolved.

    Gi/o protein-coupled receptors in dopamine neurons inhibit the sodium leak channel NALCN

    Fabian Philippart, Zayd M Khaliq
    The sodium leak NALCN channel functions as a core effector of GABA-B and D2 receptors that is used along with GIRK channels to regulate action potential firing in dopamine neurons.

    The leak channel NALCN controls tonic firing and glycolytic sensitivity of substantia nigra pars reticulata neurons

    Andrew Lutas et al.
    Basal ganglia output neurons use the NALCN leak channel to maintain their characteristic tonic firing, and this channel is important for the modulation of firing by metabolic or receptor-mediated signals.

    Global warming reduces leaf-out and flowering synchrony among individuals

    Constantin M Zohner et al.
    Individuals differ in how their leaf-out and flowering are regulated by abiotic stimuli and, under climate warming, this leads to reduced within-population phenological synchrony, impacting mutualistic and antagonistic community interactions.

    Quantitative analysis of auxin sensing in leaf primordia argues against proposed role in regulating leaf dorsoventrality

    Neha Bhatia et al.
    Top-bottom patterning of leaves is not specified by an asymmetry in the distribution of the plant hormone auxin, in contrast to a previous proposal.

    Active suppression of a leaf meristem orchestrates determinate leaf growth

    John Paul Alvarez et al.
    A meristem acting at the margins of Arabidopsis leaves is suppressed by factors acting primarily in leaves and other determinate organs.

    Intracellular calcium leak lowers glucose storage in human muscle, promoting hyperglycemia and diabetes

    Eshwar R Tammineni et al.
    Calcium-driven protein changes, causing glycogenolysis, poor synthesis, and diminished content of glycogen, along with diminished glucose transporters, lead to hyperglycemia in patients prone to calcium leaks from intracellular muscle stores.

    ABC transporter functions as a pacemaker for sequestration of plant glucosides in leaf beetles

    Anja S Strauss et al.
    A transport protein enables leaf beetle larvae to take up and store plant toxins and use them as part of their own defense strategy.
