    The nucleosomal acidic patch relieves auto-inhibition by the ISWI remodeler SNF2h

    Nathan Gamarra et al.
    Auto-inhibition of ISWI-family ATP-dependent chromatin remodelers is relieved by a conserved feature of the nucleosome.

    Homeostatic reinforcement learning for integrating reward collection and physiological stability

    Mehdi Keramati, Boris Gutkin
    A mathematical model built around the assumption that the desire to maintain internal homeostasis drives the behavior of animals, by affecting their learning processes, can explain many real-world behaviors, including some that might otherwise appear irrational.

    Identification of human TERT elements necessary for telomerase recruitment to telomeres

    Jens C Schmidt et al.
    The TEN-domain of human telomerase mediates the direct interaction with TPP1 to drive telomerase recruitment to telomeres.

    Cell type composition and circuit organization of clonally related excitatory neurons in the juvenile mouse neocortex

    Cathryn R Cadwell et al.
    Excitatory cortical neurons with a shared developmental lineage are transcriptomically diverse and preferentially connect to each other vertically, across cortical layers, but not laterally within the same layer.

    A novel motif of Rad51 serves as an interaction hub for recombination auxiliary factors

    Negar Afshar et al.
    Although Rad51 is the central protein involved in recombinational DNA repair, multiple auxiliary factors potentiate its activity by binding to a single, evolutionarily conserved motif.

    Principal cells of the brainstem’s interaural sound level detector are temporal differentiators rather than integrators

    Tom P Franken et al.
    Principal neurons of the brainstem nucleus comparing sound level at the two ears do not have the slow response properties previously attributed to them, but are instead specialized for fast weighing of excitation and inhibition.

    Active sensing in the categorization of visual patterns

    Scott Cheng-Hsin Yang et al.
    Humans use a near-optimal eye movement strategy to efficiently extract information about high-level visual categories.

    Structural evidence for Scc4-dependent localization of cohesin loading

    Stephen M Hinshaw et al.
    Cohesin loading at centromeres depends on a conserved surface cluster of amino-acid residues on the cohesin loading protein, Scc4.

    Feed-forward recruitment of electrical synapses enhances synchronous spiking in the mouse cerebellar cortex

    Andreas Hoehne et al.
    Transient recruitment of electrical synapses mediates precisely timed excitation and inhibition to enhance synchronized control of cerebellar cortical output.

    Pat1 promotes processing body assembly by enhancing the phase separation of the DEAD-box ATPase Dhh1 and RNA

    Ruchika Sachdev et al.
    The protein Pat1 functions in the assembly of processing bodies, cellular membraneless organelles, by promoting the liquid–liquid phase separation of the DEAD-box ATPase Dhh1 and RNA.
