    High-resolution mapping of fluoroquinolones in TB rabbit lesions reveals specific distribution in immune cell types

    Landry Blanc et al.
    Penetration of the fluoroquinolones in tuberculosis lesions is heterogeneous even in fully cellular areas, is driven by macrophage content and decreases as the distance from lesion outer rim increases.

    The anti-tubercular drug delamanid as a potential oral treatment for visceral leishmaniasis

    Stephen Patterson et al.
    Biological and pharmacokinetic studies indicate that the anti-tubercular drug, delamanid, could be repurposed for the treatment of visceral leishmaniasis.

    ISG15 counteracts Listeria monocytogenes infection

    Lilliana Radoshevich et al.
    The induction of ISG15 during bacterial infection can be independent of Type I Interferons and leads to an increase in the secretion of cytokines known to be critical for bacterial clearance.

    Changes in the genetic requirements for microbial interactions with increasing community complexity

    Manon Morin et al.
    Analysis of the global genetic requirements and gene expression changes in E. coli in the presence of a simple microbiome revealed pairwise and higher-order interactions, and underlying molecular mechanisms.

    Pharmacological inhibition of cystine–glutamate exchange induces endoplasmic reticulum stress and ferroptosis

    Scott J Dixon et al.
    Erastin and sorafenib inhibit system xc- and induce ER stress, suggesting these may be useful tools for probing the functions of system xc- and its role in inducing ER stress and ferroptosis.

    Phosphoprotein SAK1 is a regulator of acclimation to singlet oxygen in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii

    Setsuko Wakao et al.
    SAK1, a novel cytoplasmic phosphoprotein, is a key intermediate component of the retrograde signaling pathway controlling nuclear gene expression during acclimation of Chlamydomonas cells to singlet oxygen stress.

    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.

    Cryo-EM structure of the ATP-sensitive potassium channel illuminates mechanisms of assembly and gating

    Gregory M Martin et al.
    Single-particle cryo-electron microscopy reveals the first subnanometer structure of ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channels, which provides insight into the structural mechanisms of channel assembly and gating.

    Bacterial flagella grow through an injection-diffusion mechanism

    Thibaud T Renault et al.
    Single cell, fluorescent microscopy and mathematical modeling reveal how bacterial flagella dynamically assemble outside the cell.
