    Quantitative insights into the cyanobacterial cell economy

    Tomáš Zavřel et al.
    Phototrophic growth laws are elucidated by combining computational modeling and experiments for quantitative evaluation of cellular physiology, morphology and proteome allocation across a wide range of light conditions.

    Transition between fermentation and respiration determines history-dependent behavior in fluctuating carbon sources

    Bram Cerulus et al.
    Live-cell microscopy and genome-wide screens reveal how slow transitions in metabolism can underlie metabolic memory, providing a model for organisms demonstrating similar history-dependent behaviour and routes to improve industrial microbes.

    Strong inter-population cooperation leads to partner intermixing in microbial communities

    Babak Momeni et al.
    Simulations and experiments on systems containing two different populations of microorganisms show that interactions that benefit at least one of the populations can lead to communities with stable compositions, and that strong cooperation between two populations can lead to communities in which both populations are mixed together.

    Heterogeneous absorption of antimicrobial peptide LL37 in Escherichia coli cells enhances population survivability

    Mehdi Snoussi et al.
    A rapid absorption and retention of antimicrobial peptides by dead Escherichia coli cells can increase the survivability of the cell population in a "cooperative" fashion.

    Transient inhibition of the ERK pathway prevents cerebellar developmental defects and improves long-term motor functions in murine models of neurofibromatosis type 1

    Edward Kim et al.
    Nf1 is required during early, but not late, cerebellar development to facilitate neuronal lamination, providing a potential therapeutic prevention strategy for NF1-associated developmental abnormalities.

    Negative regulation of ABA signaling by WRKY33 is critical for Arabidopsis immunity towards Botrytis cinerea 2100

    Shouan Liu et al.
    A genome-wide view of the gene regulatory network governed by WRKY33 has identified key targets that negatively regulate ABA biosynthesis to provide immunity against infection by a necrotrophic fungus.

    Live tracking of moving samples in confocal microscopy for vertically grown roots

    Daniel von Wangenheim et al.
    A set of tools to image and track growing plant roots in optimized growing conditions within a vertical stage confocal microscope will open up new possibilities in research of root development.

    Blue light-induced LOV domain dimerization enhances the affinity of Aureochrome 1a for its target DNA sequence

    Udo Heintz, Ilme Schlichting
    Light absorption by the algal transcription factor Aureochrome 1a causes dimerization at the light-oxygen-voltage (LOV) sensing domain, which has implications for the design of synthetic photoreceptors for optogenetics.

    Self-establishing communities enable cooperative metabolite exchange in a eukaryote

    Kate Campbell et al.
    A eukaryotic cell model overcomes metabolic deficiencies within a complex, self-establishing community that enables the growth-relevant exchange of metabolic intermediates.
