    Body size-dependent energy storage causes Kleiber’s law scaling of the metabolic rate in planarians

    Albert Thommen et al.
    A combination of experimental and theoretical analysis identifies body size-dependent energy storage as the physiological cause of 3/4-power law scaling of the metabolic rate in planarians.

    Maturation of metabolic connectivity of the adolescent rat brain

    Hongyoon Choi et al.
    Rat brains mature to increase metabolic connectivity between network components and establish energy efficiency in the midline structures from childhood to early adulthood.

    Tandem riboswitches form a natural Boolean logic gate to control purine metabolism in bacteria

    Madeline E Sherlock et al.
    A riboswitch class has been discovered for phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate, the biochemical precursor of nucleotides, and this novel RNA sensor commonly operates in tandem with a guanine aptamer to function like a Boolean logic gate.

    Reduced metabolism supports hypoxic flight in the high-flying bar-headed goose (Anser indicus)

    Jessica U Meir et al.
    Measurements of bar-headed geese flying in a wind tunnel in hypoxia reveal that these birds sustain aerobic flight at high altitude via a reduction in metabolism.

    Involvement of the Acyl-CoA binding domain containing 7 in the control of food intake and energy expenditure in mice

    Damien Lanfray et al.
    The Acyl-CoA binding domain-containing 7 (Acbd7) gene is expressed in the hypothalamus, encodes a peptide that suppresses appetite, increases metabolic rate and interacts with the leptin-melanocortin system.

    Rhodoquinone biosynthesis in C. elegans requires precursors generated by the kynurenine pathway

    Samantha Del Borrello et al.
    Parasitic helminths infect over a billion humans and use unusual anaerobic metabolism that needs a rare electron carrier, Rhodoquinone (RQ), whose synthesis requires the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation.

    Saccharomyces cerevisiae goes through distinct metabolic phases during its replicative lifespan

    Simeon Leupold et al.
    With replicative age, S. cerevisiae shifts from a fermentative towards an unusual respiratory metabolism, accompanied by a decrease in growth and glucose uptake rate.
