    Bacterial death and TRADD-N domains help define novel apoptosis and immunity mechanisms shared by prokaryotes and metazoans

    Gurmeet Kaur et al.
    Prokaryotic TRADD-N and Death-like adaptor domains in diverse predicted apoptosis and immune systems from multicellular prokaryotes and metazoans indicate the common origin of key apoptosis mechanisms required for the stabilization of multicellularity.

    Alcohol consumption in the general population is associated with structural changes in multiple organ systems

    Evangelos Evangelou et al.
    The results imply that there is not a safe threshold below which there are no toxic effects of alcohol.

    Allosteric conformational ensembles have unlimited capacity for integrating information

    John W Biddle et al.
    The effective higher-order binding cooperativities arising from an ensemble of dynamically interchanging conformations are identified and shown to fully describe integration of binding information at thermodynamic equilibrium.

    Presynaptic NMDA receptors facilitate short-term plasticity and BDNF release at hippocampal mossy fiber synapses

    Pablo J Lituma et al.
    By facilitating glutamate and BDNF release, presynaptic NMDA receptors may control information transfer from the dentate gyrus to the CA3 area of the hippocampus.

    The organizational principles of de-differentiated topographic maps in somatosensory cortex

    Peng Liu et al.
    SI topographic finger maps of older adults show signs of cortical aging but do not show classical hallmarks of cortical de-differentiation.

    Corticothalamic gating of population auditory thalamocortical transmission in mouse

    Baher A Ibrahim et al.
    Sensory stimulation produces stochastic population responses in the cortex that are governed by layer 6 cortico-reticular projections that modulate thalamic synchrony.

    The push-to-open mechanism of the tethered mechanosensitive ion channel NompC

    Yang Wang et al.
    A pushing force on the ankyrin repeat region of NompC leads to the gating of the mechanosensitive ion channel, which may enable cells to feel compression and shrinkage.

    Pore mutation N617D in the skeletal muscle DHPR blocks Ca2+ influx due to atypical high-affinity Ca2+ binding

    Anamika Dayal et al.
    Characterization of Ca2+ selectivity and non-conductance mechanism induced by pore mutation N617D in the skeletal muscle DHPR.

    Asymptomatic Bordetella pertussis infections in a longitudinal cohort of young African infants and their mothers

    Christopher J Gill et al.
    Longitudinal qPCR-based pertussis surveillance of a low-resource African cohort reveals frequent asymptomatic pertussis infections in both young infants and mothers and suggests possible early warning signals for epidemic outbreaks.
