    Human macular Müller cells rely more on serine biosynthesis to combat oxidative stress than those from the periphery

    Ting Zhang et al.
    The important role of serine biosynthesis in Müller cells may explain why the macula is so much more prone to developing disease than the rest of the retina.

    Physiological and pathophysiological control of synaptic GluN2B-NMDA receptors by the C-terminal domain of amyloid precursor protein

    Paula A Pousinha et al.
    The APP intracellular domain (AICD) physiologically regulates synaptic GluN2B-containing NMDA receptor current, a process that could contribute to pathological Alzheimer's disease-related synaptic failure upon increase of AICD levels in adult neurons.

    EGF receptor signaling, phosphorylation, ubiquitylation and endocytosis in tumors in vivo

    Itziar Pinilla-Macua et al.
    A small pool of active epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptors, which are capable of ubiquitylation and efficient endocytosis in vivo, is sufficient to support EGF-receptor-dependent tumor growth by signaling primarily through the Ras-MAPK pathway.

    A single pair of neurons links sleep to memory consolidation in Drosophila melanogaster

    Paula R Haynes et al.
    Dorsal paired medial neurons, which are required for memory consolidation, promote sleep by inhibiting the excitation of mushroom body neurons.

    Impaired ABCA1/ABCG1-mediated lipid efflux in the mouse retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) leads to retinal degeneration

    Federica Storti et al.
    Lipid efflux by the retinal pigment epithelium is crucial for proper retinal integrity and function, and its impairment may contribute to diseases like age-related macular degeneration.

    Absence of TGFβ signaling in retinal microglia induces retinal degeneration and exacerbates choroidal neovascularization

    Wenxin Ma et al.
    TGFβ signaling to retinal microglia is central to the regulation of neuroinflammatory responses relevant to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in the developed world.

    Tropical Diseases: Can CRISPR help in the fight against parasitic worms?

    Paul McVeigh, Aaron G Maule
    The first reports of CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing in flatworms could usher in a new era of research on these dangerous human parasites.

    Social Psychology: A mathematical look at empathy

    Naoki Masuda, Francisco C Santos
    When an individual makes a judgement about the actions of another individual, taking the latter's viewpoint into consideration enhances cooperation in society at large.

    Global reorganisation of cis-regulatory units upon lineage commitment of human embryonic stem cells

    Paula Freire-Pritchett et al.
    Promoter interactome maps in human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and ESC-derived early neuroectodermal progenitors link distal enhancers to putative target genes, reveal lineage-specific cis-regulatory architecture and shed light on the logic of gene regulation by multiple enhancers.
