    Serum amyloid A is a retinol binding protein that transports retinol during bacterial infection

    Mehabaw G Derebe et al.
    Serum amyloid A proteins bind retinol with nanomolar affinity, and do so by forming oligomers that create a hydrophobic pocket that shields retinol from the aqueous environment.

    Imaging single-cell blood flow in the smallest to largest vessels in the living retina

    Aby Joseph et al.
    By using a specialized camera that corrects for eye blur, millions of single-blood-cells are imaged, and their speed measured, as they travel through the largest-to-smallest vessels of the retina.

    Contrast sensitivity reveals an oculomotor strategy for temporally encoding space

    Antonino Casile et al.
    Fixational eye movements transform the spatial scene into temporal modulations on the retina, which, together with the known sensitivities of retinal neurons, provide a comprehensive account of human spatial sensitivity.
