    Temperature compensation in a small rhythmic circuit

    Leandro M Alonso, Eve Marder
    Computational models demonstrate that circuit resilience to temperature perturbations are associated with smooth transitions between cellular mechanisms as the contributions of different currents are altered while activity is maintained.

    The His-Gly motif of acid-sensing ion channels resides in a reentrant ‘loop’ implicated in gating and ion selectivity

    Nate Yoder, Eric Gouaux
    The amino terminus of acid-sensing ion channel 1a forms a reentrant 'loop' that frames the lower pore and harbors a conserved 'His-Gly' motif implicated in gating and ion selectivity mechanisms.
  1. Webinar Report: Reforming academic conferences

    In this month’s webinar our speakers discussed what can be done to reform the conference experience for both organisers and participants.

    Lin28a/let-7 pathway modulates the Hox code via Polycomb regulation during axial patterning in vertebrates

    Tempei Sato et al.
    Genetic analyses reveal that the loss of Lin28a causes axial shortening with mild skeletal transformations via decreased PRC1 at Hox genes, establishing a new pathway in the “Hox code.”.

    A CLC-ec1 mutant reveals global conformational change and suggests a unifying mechanism for the CLC Cl/H+ transport cycle

    Tanmay S Chavan et al.
    Crystallography together with electron-resonance spectroscopy, molecular-dynamics simulations, and transport measurements reveal the molecular details of protein conformational change, and how this change contributes to function in a CLC-type chloride/proton exchanger.

    Multi-state recognition pathway of the intrinsically disordered protein kinase inhibitor by protein kinase A

    Cristina Olivieri et al.
    A combination of NMR, fluorescence, and molecular dynamics simulations reveals the recognition mechanism for the intrinsically disordered regulator of protein kinase A, highlighting the enzyme's nuclear export process.

    Polar pattern formation induced by contact following locomotion in a multicellular system

    Masayuki Hayakawa et al.
    Transient cell-cell contact of eukaryotic cells, called contact following locomotion, causes cell density segregation, and its high-density region traveled as a band within the disordered background.

    Independent evolution of ancestral and novel defenses in a genus of toxic plants (Erysimum, Brassicaceae)

    Tobias Züst et al.
    A gain-of-function in a new chemical defense resulted in no trade-offs and and independent evolution between novel and ancestral defenses, suggesting low redundancy among different defensive chemicals.

    Determining the scale at which variation in a single gene changes population yields

    Erica McGale et al.
    Variation in the gene NaMPK4 in plant populations increases reproductive yield, an effect which appears to be independent of soil water availability, neighbor-scale interactions and associations with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.

    A model for focal seizure onset, propagation, evolution, and progression

    Jyun-you Liou et al.
    Usage-dependent inhibition breakdown and neural adaptation underpins the key spatiotemporal dynamics of human focal seizures.
