    Coronary arterial development is regulated by a Dll4-Jag1-EphrinB2 signaling cascade

    Stanislao Igor Travisano et al.
    Notch ligands Jag1 and Dll4 and their effector Ephb2 are required in sinus venosus endocardium for primitive coronary vasculature formation and later for arterial differentiation and maturation of coronary endothelium.

    Microsaccadic sampling of moving image information provides Drosophila hyperacute vision

    Mikko Juusola et al.
    New experiments and theory reveal how the ability to see image details depends upon photoreceptor function and eye movements, and how fruit flies (Drosophila) see spatial details beyond the optical limit of their compound eyes.

    Cell Cycle: Micromanaging checkpoint proteins

    Andrea Ciliberto, Silke Hauf
    The kinase Mps1, long known to be the 'boss' in mitotic checkpoint signaling, phosphorylates multiple proteins in the checkpoint signaling cascade.

    Ongoing, rational calibration of reward-driven perceptual biases

    Yunshu Fan et al.
    The rational application of heuristic learning strategies and satisficing goals accounted for near-optimal decisions that combined reward and noisy visual information by well-trained monkeys.

    Crenactin forms actin-like double helical filaments regulated by arcadin-2

    Thierry Izoré et al.
    Close evolutionary relationship between eukaryotic F-actin and crenarchaeal crenactin protein is supported by a near-atomic cryoEM structure of double helical filaments, that are inhibited by arcadin-2 through binding to crenactin's hydrophobic groove.

    Synthetic single domain antibodies for the conformational trapping of membrane proteins

    Iwan Zimmermann et al.
    Synthetic single domain antibody libraries and a binder selection cascade encompassing ribosome and phage display enable the selection of conformation-specific binders against previously intractable membrane proteins within three weeks.

    The coordinated action of the MVB pathway and autophagy ensures cell survival during starvation

    Martin Müller et al.
    A catabolic cascade is essential to enter a stable G1/G0 quiescent state and survive extended periods of starvation.

    Genetic specification of left–right asymmetry in the diaphragm muscles and their motor innervation

    Camille Charoy et al.
    Analysis of embryonic mouse diaphragm reveals muscle and nerve left–right asymmetries set by a Nodal-dependent genetic cascade, which imprints different molecular signatures to left and right motoneurons that shape their innervation pattern.

    Intracellular growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis after macrophage cell death leads to serial killing of host cells

    Deeqa Mahamed et al.
    The rapid killing of macrophages by Mycobacterium tuberculosis aggregates, and the subsequent proliferation of the bacteria inside the dead cell, leads to a cell death cascade and explains the coupling of necrosis and pathogen growth observed in active disease.
