    Disruption of thalamic functional connectivity is a neural correlate of dexmedetomidine-induced unconsciousness

    Oluwaseun Akeju et al.
    Patterns of communication between the thalamus and the cortex are correlated with anesthesia-induced loss of consciousness and recovery.

    An elusive electron shuttle from a facultative anaerobe

    Emily Mevers et al.
    The identification of ACNQ as an extracellular electron shuttle solves a longstanding problem in bacterial physiology and provides new tool for bioenergy development.

    One bout of neonatal inflammation impairs adult respiratory motor plasticity in male and female rats

    Austin D Hocker et al.
    A single neonatal inflammatory event induces long-term impairments in two forms of adult respiratory motor plasticity, an important aspect of the control of breathing for compensation after injury or disease.

    A feedback loop governs the relationship between lipid metabolism and longevity

    Nicole K Littlejohn et al.
    The dual control of adiposity and longevity emerges from a latent intestinal feedback loop which simultaneously augments fat loss and shields lifespan from the deleterious effects of continuous fat oxidation.

    The Warburg Effect and lactate signaling augment Fgf-MAPK to promote sensory-neural development in the otic vesicle

    Husniye Kantarci et al.
    Glycolysis is locally enhanced and redirected in zebrafish to generate lactate, which functions as a signaling molecule to fully activate Fgf target genes required for proper sensory and neural development.

    Drosophila TRIM32 cooperates with glycolytic enzymes to promote cell growth

    Simranjot Bawa et al.
    TRIM32-mediated glycolytic flux generates precursors that are utilized for biomass production in non-dividing muscle, brain and tumor cells, demonstrating a universal metabolic function for TRIM32 in cell growth.

    Opioids depress breathing through two small brainstem sites

    Iris Bachmutsky et al.
    Opioids stop breathing during overdose by silencing two small brain sites, with just 140 neurons in the breathing rhythm generator exerting the key effect.

    A kinase-dependent feedforward loop affects CREBB stability and long term memory formation

    Pei-Tseng Lee et al.
    Through an image and behavioral screen based on MiMIC technology, we identified a novel kinase, CG11221 renamed Meng-Po (MP), and showed that flies that lack MP in mushroom bodies can learn but cannot remember as MP is required for the protein stability of CREBB.

    DUCT reveals architectural mechanisms contributing to bile duct recovery in a mouse model for Alagille syndrome

    Simona Hankeova et al.
    Dual resin casting of multiple lumenized systems followed by microCT allows visualization, digitalization, and quantification of architectural parameters defining the vascular and biliary systems in liver revealing new phenotypes.

    Bid maintains mitochondrial cristae structure and function and protects against cardiac disease in an integrative genomics study

    Christi T Salisbury-Ruf et al.
    An integrative approach, combining genetic mouse and large-scale human genetics studies, was used to reveal a novel role for the Bcl-2 protein Bid in maintenance of mitochondrial function that alters susceptibility to myocardial infarction.
