    Quantification of the pace of biological aging in humans through a blood test, the DunedinPoAm DNA methylation algorithm

    Daniel W Belsky et al.
    Methylation pace of aging is a novel measure requiring only a blood sample that clinical-trial and observational studies can use to test if treatments modify how fast participants are aging.

    Endoplasmic reticulum stress-independent activation of unfolded protein response kinases by a small molecule ATP-mimic

    Aaron S Mendez et al.
    A rationally designed small molecule ATP-mimetic activates IRE1 and PERK signaling in cells by inducing conformational changes that template the assembly of higher-order enzymatically active structures.

    MUL1 acts in parallel to the PINK1/parkin pathway in regulating mitofusin and compensates for loss of PINK1/parkin

    Jina Yun et al.
    By reducing mitochondrial fusion, MUL1 compensates for the mutations in PINK1 or parkin that underlie certain cases of Parkinson's disease.

    Bottom-up and top-down influences at untrained conditions determine perceptual learning specificity and transfer

    Ying-Zi Xiong et al.
    Perceptual learning is specific because of the absence of bottom-up stimulation and top-down modulation at the untrained conditions.
