    Episode 36: February 2017

    In this episode we hear about epilepsy, the sushi-belt model of transport in neurons, a mother in ancient Troy, the Amazon rainforest and bias in scientific reporting.
  3. Episode 51: November 2018

    In this episode, we hear about mammals moving to the suburbs, LSD and the brain, publication bias, contagious cancers, and the effect of climate change on mosquito-borne diseases.

    Acute intermittent hypoxia enhances corticospinal synaptic plasticity in humans

    Lasse Christiansen et al.
    Acute intermittent hypoxia is a noninvasive approach that enhances corticospinal function in humans, likely through alterations in corticospinal-motoneuronal synaptic transmission.

    Principles of cellular resource allocation revealed by condition-dependent proteome profiling

    Eyal Metzl-Raz et al.
    Steadily growing cells prepare for conditions that demand increased translation by producing excess ribosomes, at the expense of lower steady-state growth rate.

    Myosin V functions as a vesicle tether at the plasma membrane to control neurotransmitter release in central synapses

    Dario Maschi et al.
    Synaptic vesicles undergo reversible tethering at the plasma membrane which is activity- and myosin V- dependent.

    Germ layer-specific regulation of cell polarity and adhesion gives insight into the evolution of mesoderm

    Miguel Salinas-Saavedra et al.
    The expression of 'bilaterian-mesodermal’ genes changes the epithelial properties of the endomesoderm during the embryogenesis of the cnidarian Nematostella vectensis.

    Transcription factor TFCP2L1 patterns cells in the mouse kidney collecting ducts

    Max Werth et al.
    A combination of genetic and molecular assays revealed that transcription factor Tfcp2l1 provides the basis for cell patterning and physiologic coordination in kidney collecting ducts.

    On the mechanistic nature of epistasis in a canonical cis-regulatory element

    Mato Lagator et al.
    Thermodynamic framework accurately predicts the sign of epistasis and its environment dependence for a canonical cis-regulatory element.

    A lncRNA fine tunes the dynamics of a cell state transition involving Lin28, let-7 and de novo DNA methylation

    Meng Amy Li et al.
    A novel lncRNA (Ephemeron) is connected to known post-transcriptional and epigenetic regulators as part of an integrated machinery, which controls the timely exit from the naïve state of mouse embryonic stem cells.
