    Cryo-EM of dynein microtubule-binding domains shows how an axonemal dynein distorts the microtubule

    Samuel E Lacey et al.
    Relion was used to solve structures of microtubules decorated with dynein microtubule-binding domains revealing that an axonemal dynein distorts the microtubule cross-sectional curvature.

    Vasoactive intestinal peptide-expressing interneurons are impaired in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome

    Kevin M Goff, Ethan M Goldberg
    Vasoactive intestinal peptide-expressing GABAergic interneurons in cerebral cortex express the sodium channel subunit Nav1.1, and a defined subset of VIP interneurons are dysfunctional in a mouse model of Dravet syndrome.

    The genomes of polyextremophilic cyanidiales contain 1% horizontally transferred genes with diverse adaptive functions

    Alessandro W Rossoni et al.
    Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) analysis in polyextremophile red algae (Cyanidiales) provides explanations for the nonexistence of cumulative effects and eukaryotic pangenomes, and highlights differences between HGT and native genes.
    1. Neuroscience

    Impact of precisely-timed inhibition of gustatory cortex on taste behavior depends on single-trial ensemble dynamics

    Narendra Mukherjee et al.
    Primary taste cortex does far more than code tastes by turning taste codes into motor commands via population dynamics.

    The Caenorhabditis elegans Tubby homolog dynamically modulates olfactory cilia membrane morphogenesis and phospholipid composition

    Danielle DiTirro et al.
    A Tubby protein regulates ciliary membrane morphology and phosphoinositide composition in a context-dependent manner.

    The C-terminal tail of the bacterial translocation ATPase SecA modulates its activity

    Mohammed Jamshad et al.
    The interaction of SecA with its substrate proteins is regulated by its evolutionarily conserved C-terminal tail, which autoinhibits SecA unless SecA binds to the ribosome.

    Genetic interactions of G-quadruplexes in humans

    Katherine G Zyner et al.
    For the first time, the spectrum of genes and pathways interacting with alternative DNA structures called G-quadruplexes in humans is revealed highlighting new possibilities for the pursuit of cancer therapies.

    KHNYN is essential for the zinc finger antiviral protein (ZAP) to restrict HIV-1 containing clustered CpG dinucleotides

    Mattia Ficarelli et al.
    KHNYN, a putative endoribonuclease, interacts with the zinc-finger antiviral protein (ZAP) and is required for the inhibition of HIV replication and RNA abundance by CpG dinucleotides.

    Cryo-EM structures of remodeler-nucleosome intermediates suggest allosteric control through the nucleosome

    Jean Paul Armache et al.
    Cryo-EM structures capture different conformational states of chromatin remodeler-nucleosome complexes.
