    Episode 3: August 2013

    In this episode we hear about the cocktail party effect, the role of psuedogene RNA in the immune response, the genetic origins of a common form of blindness, the flu vaccine, and the origins of schistosomiasis.

    Visual projection neurons in the Drosophila lobula link feature detection to distinct behavioral programs

    Ming Wu et al.
    Neurons called lobula columnar cells help fruit flies respond appropriately to specific visual cues, such as those signaling an approaching predator.

    Anatomical and single-cell transcriptional profiling of the murine habenular complex

    Michael L Wallace et al.
    Single-cell transcriptional profiling reveals distinct neuronal subtypes of the lateral habenula differentially target downstream neuronal subtypes in the ventral tegmental area and dorsal raphe nucleus.

    Alpha-satellite RNA transcripts are repressed by centromere–nucleolus associations

    Leah Bury et al.
    Single molecule FISH analysis defines the behavior of centromere-derived alpha-satellite transcripts in intact human cells and reveals a critical role for centromere-nucleolar contacts in repressing alpha-satellite transcription.

    The transcriptomic response of cells to a drug combination is more than the sum of the responses to the monotherapies

    Jennifer EL Diaz et al.
    The transcriptomic profiles of the constituent monotherapies of synergistic drug pairs tend to be correlated and result in novel gene expression in the combinations.

    In vivo proximity labeling identifies cardiomyocyte protein networks during zebrafish heart regeneration

    Mira I Pronobis et al.
    Proximity labeling-based proteomic strategies applied in zebrafish identify new insights into protein network changes in heart muscle cells during regeneration and implicate Rho A as a target of ErbB2 signaling during zebrafish heart regeneration.

    Pervasive duplication of tumor suppressors in Afrotherians during the evolution of large bodies and reduced cancer risk

    Juan M Vazquez, Vincent J Lynch
    Duplication of tumor suppressor genes contributed to the evolution of large, long-lived elephants.

    A Drosophila screen identifies NKCC1 as a modifier of NGLY1 deficiency

    Dana M Talsness et al.
    An ion transporter is hyperglycosylated and 50% less functional in NGLY1-deficient cells, potentially explaining several symptoms of NGLY1 deficiency such as lack of sweat and tears.

    Vanishing white matter disease expression of truncated EIF2B5 activates induced stress response

    Matthew D Keefe et al.
    Neurological pathology and chronic activation of the induced stress response are caused by expression of a truncated EIF2B5 in vanishing white matter disease.

    Male-predominant galanin mediates androgen-dependent aggressive chases in medaka

    Junpei Yamashita et al.
    In medaka fish, galanin-expressing neurons in the medial preoptic area occur nearly exclusively in males and mediate androgen-dependent male–male aggressive chases.
