    Episode 11: April 2014

    In this episode we hear about neuropathic pain, gene therapy, insulin production, aging in worms, and how flatworms grow new body parts.
    1. Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics

    Structural and functional insights into the bona fide catalytic state of Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 HNH nuclease domain

    Zhicheng Zuo et al.
    The catalytic activation of the Cas9 HNH domain involves a unique conformational change in the ββα-metal motif that is collectively driven by the interactions with the metal ions and DNA.
    1. Biochemistry and Chemical Biology

    Rational design of aptazyme riboswitches for efficient control of gene expression in mammalian cells

    Guocai Zhong et al.
    An empirically derived scoring system for identifying optimal communication modules of aptazymes accelerates the development of ligand-responsive RNA genetic switches functional in mammalian cells.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Fringe proteins modulate Notch-ligand cis and trans interactions to specify signaling states

    Lauren LeBon et al.
    Fringe proteins modulate cis inhibitory, same-cell interactions between the Notch receptor and its ligands to control whether, and in which direction, cells can signal to one another.
    1. Biochemistry and Chemical Biology

    Structural basis for AcrVA4 inhibition of specific CRISPR-Cas12a

    Gavin J Knott et al.
    An ancestral helical bundle governs whether the crRNA-processing nuclease of CRISPR-Cas12a is exploited by a phage-encoded allosteric anti-CRISPR.
    1. Neuroscience

    Stretching the skin immediately enhances perceived stiffness and gradually enhances the predictive control of grip force

    Mor Farajian et al.
    Elucidating the contribution of augmented artificial skin-stretch stimulation to the fingertips to the immediate illusion of a higher stiffness and to an increased predictive grip force control.
    1. Neuroscience

    Cellular cartography of the organ of Corti based on optical tissue clearing and machine learning

    Shinji Urata et al.
    A method of generating comprehensive maps of cochlear cells was created and enabled researchers to study characteristics of cellular damage in aged and noise-exposed inner ear.
    1. Neuroscience

    Wireless recording from unrestrained monkeys reveals motor goal encoding beyond immediate reach in frontoparietal cortex

    Michael Berger et al.
    The novel Reach Cage allows neurophysiology studies of structured behavior with unrestrained Rhesus macaques showing that the frontoparietal reach network is selective for reach goals outside the immediately reachable space.

    2. Neuroscience

    Layered roles of fruitless isoforms in specification and function of male aggression-promoting neurons in Drosophila

    Margot Wohl et al.
    Male-type aggressive and courtship behaviors of the fruit flies are differentially specified by two sex-determining genes, providing a substrate for the evolution to sculpt these two behaviors independently.

    An adipokine feedback regulating diurnal food intake rhythms in mice

    Anthony H Tsang et al.
    Adiponectin signaling integrates metabolic state information to regulate circadian clock function in hypothalamic appetite regulating centers, food intake rhythms, and body weight.
