    Characterization of the finch embryo supports evolutionary conservation of the naive stage of development in amniotes

    Siu-Shan Mak et al.
    Finch embryos are laid at an earlier stage than other avian embryos and contain cells with similar properties to pluripotent embryonic stem cells from mice.

    Dynamic enhancer partitioning instructs activation of a growth-related gene during exit from naïve pluripotency

    Maxim Greenberg et al.
    Three-dimensional chromatin architecture facilitates a promoter switch in order to ensure maintained expression of a gene involved in growth during embryonic stem cell differentiation.

    Zfp281 is essential for mouse epiblast maturation through transcriptional and epigenetic control of Nodal signaling

    Xin Huang et al.
    Post-implantation epiblast maturation and patterning of anterior-posterior axis in mouse embryonic development are mediated by pluripotency transcription factor Zfp281 through transcriptional and epigenetic control of Nodal signaling.
  1. Meta-Research: The growth of acronyms in the scientific literature

    Adrian Barnett, Zoe Doubleday
    A study of 24 million articles has revealed that scientists have created more than 1 million acronyms since 1950, most of which have been used fewer than 10 times.
  2. Research: The readability of scientific texts is decreasing over time

    Pontus Plavén-Sigray et al.
    Scientific abstracts have become less readable over the past 130 years, in part because recent texts include more general scientific jargon than older texts.

    Research: Titles and abstracts of scientific reports ignore variation among species

    Barbara R Migeon
    Ignoring the probability of species variation when reporting observations about biological processes leads to misinterpretation of the experimental data.

    Tracing a protein’s folding pathway over evolutionary time using ancestral sequence reconstruction and hydrogen exchange

    Shion An Lim et al.
    Pulsed-labeling hydrogen exchange on the ribonuclease H family show that the major folding intermediate is conserved over three billion years of evolution, but the path leading to this intermediate varies.

    Multiple kinesins induce tension for smooth cargo transport

    Marco Tjioe et al.
    After developing a force-gliding assay with nanometer and piconewton precision, it is concluded that multiple kinesins driving a single cargo induces tension, resulting in smooth cargo transport, even with roadblocks.

    Functional synergy between the Munc13 C-terminal C1 and C2 domains

    Xiaoxia Liu et al.
    Munc13 C-terminal domains synergize to coordinate synaptic vesicle docking, priming and fusion.

    Activated αIIbβ3 on platelets mediates flow-dependent NETosis via SLC44A2

    Adela Constantinescu-Bercu et al.
    The interaction between activated αIIbβ3 on platelets and SLC44A2 on circulating neutrophils facilitates neutrophil capture and drives flow-dependent NETosis.
