    Par3 cooperates with Sanpodo for the assembly of Notch clusters following asymmetric division of Drosophila sensory organ precursor cells

    Elise Houssin et al.
    Baz/Par3 and Sanpdo are required for clustering and activation of Notch receptors to allow intra-lineage private communication following asymmetric division of Drosophila epithelial cells.

    Evolutionary dynamics of circular RNAs in primates

    Gabriela Santos-Rodriguez et al.
    An analysis of the genomic features that distinguish conserved from species-specific circular RNAs reveals that the expansion of the downstream intron by insertion of retrotransposons stabilizes circular RNAs' production across 30+ millions years of evolution.

    An XRCC4 mutant mouse, a model for human X4 syndrome, reveals interplays with Xlf, PAXX, and ATM in lymphoid development

    Benoit Roch et al.
    A viable separation of function XRCC4 knock-in mutant mouse model recapitulates some aspects of XRCC4 deficiency in humans, notably the absence of immune deficiency.

    The cell adhesion molecule Sdk1 shapes assembly of a retinal circuit that detects localized edges

    Pierre-Luc Rochon et al.
    A novel retinal ganglion cell requires a cell adhesion molecule to grow its dendrites, collect synaptic inputs, and become selective to edges placed in its receptive field.

    The LRRK2 G2019S mutation alters astrocyte-to-neuron communication via extracellular vesicles and induces neuron atrophy in a human iPSC-derived model of Parkinson’s disease

    Aurelie de Rus Jacquet et al.
    Extracellular vesicles are proposed as novel, non-cell-autonomous mediators of neuronal atrophy in Parkinson's disease.

    HspB8 prevents aberrant phase transitions of FUS by chaperoning its folded RNA-binding domain

    Edgar E Boczek et al.
    Quantitative time-resolved crosslinking mass spectrometry is developed to monitor protein interactions and dynamics inside molecular condensates and used to identify misfolding of the RNA-binding domain of FUS as a key driver of condensate-aging.

    ASIC1a is required for neuronal activation via low-intensity ultrasound stimulation in mouse brain

    Jormay Lim et al.
    Mouse brain neurons response to transcranial ultrasound at the energy level of 5 mW/cm2 and repeated stimulations lead to neurogenesis while ASIC1a is required both in vitro and in vivo as one of the mechanoreceptors.

    Secondary metabolites of Hülle cells mediate protection of fungal reproductive and overwintering structures against fungivorous animals

    Li Liu et al.
    Xanthones produced by the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans protect its sexual structures from predation by arthropods.

    Mutational analysis to explore long-range allosteric couplings involved in a pentameric channel receptor pre-activation and activation

    Solène N Lefebvre et al.
    A pentameric channel-receptor was studied by combining allosteric mutations, electrophysiology, fluorescent reporters and normal mode analysis, to dissect the long-range allosteric couplings specifically involved in its pre-activation and activation.

    A beta-glucosidase of an insect herbivore determines both toxicity and deterrence of a dandelion defense metabolite

    Meret Huber et al.
    An insect digestive enzyme metabolizes a plant defense compound and thereby modulates herbivore performance and host plant choice, which in turn may alter plant defense evolution in nature.
