  1. Research Culture: A Selection of Articles

    Edited by Julia Deathridge
    Research culture needs to be improved for the benefit of science and scientists.
  2. Episode 69: September 2020

    In this episode, we hear about prostate cancer, cultural diversity in bonobos, blood fat imbalances in Latin America and the Caribbean, insect behaviour, and how astrocytes can form new neurons.

    Sexual dimorphism in trait variability and its eco-evolutionary and statistical implications

    Susanne RK Zajitschek et al.
    Sex differences in trait variability imply that both sexes should be included in biomedical trials, using sex-specific statistical power calculations.
    1. Neuroscience

    TrpML-mediated astrocyte microdomain Ca2+ transients regulate astrocyte–tracheal interactions

    Zhiguo Ma, Marc R Freeman
    Astrocyte microdomain calcium transients are mediated by TrpML, stimulated by ROS and tyramine, and mediate astrocyte–tracheal interactions in CNS gas exchange.
    1. Neuroscience

    Preserving inhibition with a disinhibitory microcircuit in the retina

    Qiang Chen et al.
    A disinhibitory motif in the retina mediates noise resilience of motion detection using an inverted algorithm of disinhibition due to the interplay between network activity and synaptic plasticity.

    Optimized Vivid-derived Magnets photodimerizers for subcellular optogenetics in mammalian cells

    Lorena Benedetti et al.
    eMags is an engineered photodimerizer pair for optogenetic modulation in mammalian cells that is especially suited for the manipulation of intracellular processes occurring in small volumes or subcellular organelles.

    Investigating the trade-off between folding and function in a multidomain Y-family DNA polymerase

    Xiakun Chu et al.
    The physical interaction network encoded in the multi-domain protein native structure handles the trade-off between the fast, stable folding and the efficient, reliable function.
    1. Microbiology and Infectious Disease

    Defining the function of OmpA in the Rcs stress response

    Kilian Dekoninck et al.
    In vivo and in vitro approaches uncover a new function for the β-barrel OmpA and reveal how it interacts with the stress sensor lipoprotein RcsF.
    1. Neuroscience

    Properties of multivesicular release from mouse rod photoreceptors support transmission of single-photon responses

    Cassandra L Hays et al.
    To improve the reliability of transmitting small single-photon voltage responses, rod photoreceptor cells release synaptic vesicles in regularly timed multivesicular events that are exquisitely sensitive to small voltage changes.

    The allosteric modulation of complement C5 by knob domain peptides

    Alex Macpherson et al.
    Structural and functional analysis of a new class of low-molecular-weight antibody fragments, derived from bovine immunoglobulins, reveals their therapeutic potential against C5, a target for refractory inflammatory diseases.
