    The actin-modulating protein synaptopodin mediates long-term survival of dendritic spines

    Kenrick Yap et al.
    Long-term imaging of dentate granule cells reveals that the presence of synaptopodin within large spines, rather than their size, conveys long-term stability to large spines.

    The energy savings-oxidative cost trade-off for migratory birds during endurance flight

    Scott McWilliams et al.
    Migratory birds with fuel stores composed of more omega-6 fats saved energy during long-duration flights, but this short-term energy saving came at the long-term cost of higher oxidative damage.

    Removing unwanted variation with CytofRUV to integrate multiple CyTOF datasets

    Marie Trussart et al.
    CytofRUV is a computational algorithm that effectively enables batch effect reduction in multiple CyTOF batches with an adaptable normalisation method and an R-Shiny application with diagnostics plots.

    New capsaicin analogs as molecular rulers to define the permissive conformation of the mouse TRPV1 ligand-binding pocket

    Simon Vu et al.
    Novel capsaicin analogs with conserved chemistry but varying sizes were used as molecular rulers to investigate energetics of conformational changes in the ligand-binding pocket and mechanisms of TRPV1 ligand-gating.

    Early prediction of level-of-care requirements in patients with COVID-19

    Boran Hao et al.
    Using data for 2566 COVID-19 patients from five hospitals, models are developed to predict for each patient hospitalization and critical care needs, based on demographics, comorbidities, medications, and laboratory findings.

    Transparent soil microcosms for live-cell imaging and non-destructive stable isotope probing of soil microorganisms

    Kriti Sharma et al.
    Two optically transparent substrates enable the exploration of the ecophysiology and spatiotemporal organization and activities of bacteria and fungi within heterogeneous soil-like environments.

    The histone modification reader ZCWPW1 links histone methylation to PRDM9-induced double-strand break repair

    Tao Huang et al.
    ZCWPW1 is a histone modification reader that localizes to DMC1-labelled double-strand break hotspots in a largely PRDM9-dependent manner, where it facilitates completion of synapsis by mediating DSB repair process.

    Defining the function of OmpA in the Rcs stress response

    Kilian Dekoninck et al.
    In vivo and in vitro approaches uncover a new function for the β-barrel OmpA and reveal how it interacts with the stress sensor lipoprotein RcsF.
