    Risk of motor vehicle collisions after methadone use

    Ya-Hui Yang et al.
    Methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) can alleviate opioid dependence, however, drivers receiving MMT were at high risk of motor vehicle collisions in the present study, particularly the first 90 days of MMT.

    Prenatal methadone exposure disrupts behavioral development and alters motor neuron intrinsic properties and local circuitry

    Gregory G Grecco et al.
    A novel, translational mouse model of prenatal methadone exposure was developed and a longitudinal assessment of offspring revealed impairments in physical, behavioral, and neuronal development.
  1. Meta-Research: The growth of acronyms in the scientific literature

    Adrian Barnett, Zoe Doubleday
    A study of 24 million articles has revealed that scientists have created more than 1 million acronyms since 1950, most of which have been used fewer than 10 times.

    Membrane fluidity is regulated by the C. elegans transmembrane protein FLD-1 and its human homologs TLCD1/2

    Mario Ruiz et al.
    Inhibition of C. elegans FLD-1 or Human TLCD1/2 prevents saturated fat lipotoxicity by allowing increased levels of membrane phospholipids that contain fluidizing long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids.

    Inhibitory peptidergic modulation of C. elegans serotonin neurons is gated by T-type calcium channels

    Kara E Zang et al.
    Genetic analysis of how neuropeptides control C. elegans reproductive behavior shows how T-type calcium channels engage and disengage target neurons from these critical regulators of neural circuits and behavior.

    Transcription-associated topoisomerase 2α (TOP2A) activity is a major effector of cytotoxicity induced by G-quadruplex ligands

    Madeleine Bossaert et al.
    Topoisomerase 2α DNA breaks induced by G-quadruplex ligands are associated with a topological stress resulting from a transcription-dependent mechanism and counteracted by DNA topoisomerase 1 and factors promoting transcription elongation.

    NHR-8 and P-glycoproteins uncouple xenobiotic resistance from longevity in chemosensory C. elegans mutants

    Gabriel A Guerrero et al.
    Separate genetic pathways mediate longevity, pathogen resistance, and cell-nonautonomous regulation of xenobiotic detoxification in chemosensory defective Caenorhabditis elegans mutants.

    Evolutionarily conserved long-chain Acyl-CoA synthetases regulate membrane composition and fluidity

    Mario Ruiz et al.
    Silencing the acyl-coA synthethase ACSL1 protects against saturated fat lipotoxicity by preventing the degradation of polyunsaturated fatty acids, allowing them to be incorporated into phospholipids and improves membrane fluidity.

    Regulation of neuronal axon specification by glia-neuron gap junctions in C. elegans

    Lingfeng Meng et al.
    Genetic study of C. elegans neural development reveals the function of glia-neuron gap junctions in neuronal axon specification, and shows that glial cells regulate neuronal intracellular pathways through gap junctions.

    Short and long sleeping mutants reveal links between sleep and macroautophagy

    Joseph L Bedont et al.
    Unbiased and targeted genetic approaches reveal a link between sleep and autophagy that could be relevant for sleep function, and for understanding pathological consequences of chronic sleep loss.
