    Talin-activated vinculin interacts with branched actin networks to initiate bundles

    Rajaa Boujemaa-Paterski et al.
    At adhesion sites, talin-activated vinculin promotes interactions with the actin network that initiates bundles.

    Structural rearrangement of amyloid-β upon inhibitor binding suppresses formation of Alzheimer’s disease related oligomers

    Tobias Lieblein et al.
    Monitoring the formation of two distinct arrangements in early amyloid-ß aggregation by mass spectrometry and ion mobility allows determination of the effect of potential drug candidates.

    Genetic timestamping of plasma cells in vivo reveals tissue-specific homeostatic population turnover

    An Qi Xu et al.
    A new system to genetically label and manipulate plasma cells in vivo in their microenvironment resolves current technical limitations and reveals tissue-specific homeostatic population turnover.

    Altered hippocampal-prefrontal communication during anxiety-related avoidance in mice deficient for the autism-associated gene Pogz

    Margaret M Cunniff et al.
    In POGZ heterozygous mice, reduced anxiety-related avoidance is associated with decreased feedforward inhibition and theta synchrony in the hippocampal-prefrontal pathway.

    Mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells mediate protective host responses in sepsis

    Shubhanshi Trivedi et al.
    Mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells, highly activated and dysfunctional in sepsis patients, contribute to tissue-specific cytokine responses that are protective against mortality during experimental sepsis.

    Defective memory engram reactivation underlies impaired fear memory recall in Fragile X syndrome

    Jie Li et al.
    Activity-dependent genetic labeling during behavioral learning shows Fragile-X syndrome model mice exhibit impaired hippocampal engram reactivation, and that enriched environment experience improves fear memory retrieval by enhancing engram reactivation efficacy.

    Repression of interrupted and intact rDNA by the SUMO pathway in Drosophila melanogaster

    Yicheng Luo et al.
    SUMO-dependent pathway is responsible for selective repression of damaged rDNA and silencing of intact surplus units revealing an epigenetic mechanism that controls the differential expression of identical sequences in the same cell.

    Robo functions as an attractive cue for glial migration through SYG-1/Neph

    Zhongwei Qu et al.
    An extracellular cleavage fragment of Robo released from neurons can bind to glia-expressed SYG-1 to guide glia migration.

    The genetic architecture of host response reveals the importance of arbuscular mycorrhizae to maize cultivation

    M Rosario Ramírez-Flores et al.
    Heritable variation in the benefit maize plants receive from arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi supports the feasibility of breeding crops to optimize use of this ancient symbiosis.

    Bayesian inference for biophysical neuron models enables stimulus optimization for retinal neuroprosthetics

    Jonathan Oesterle et al.
    Bayesian simulator-based inference is used to infer the parameters of complex multicompartment models of retinal neurons from two-photon imaging data.
