Serial-section electron microscopy uncovers the intricate neural network of the bumblebee central complex, revealing highly conserved projection patterns as well as novel circuit elements potentially unique to bees.
Carriage of MDR S. Typhi H58 sublineages that also cause acute disease provides understanding of the transmission dynamics of typhoid fever and maintenance of local pathogen populations in Kenya children.
Human herpesvirus 6B can transition between telomere-integrated and free viral forms, and frequent telomere-loop-driven partial or complete viral genome excision events create mosaicism in germline carriers of inherited chromosomally integrated HHV-6B.
Respiratory syncytial virus produces filamentous particles that change shape when the viral matrix detaches from the viral membrane, and this change in shape results in enhanced deposition of complement proteins, with potential downstream consequences.
Although cellular organelles show a functional deterioration in aging, genetic loci associated with common age-associated disease instead nominate nuclear transcription factors across several age-related diseases.
