    Auxin production in the endosperm drives seed coat development in Arabidopsis

    Duarte D Figueiredo et al.
    Auxin is produced in the endosperm after fertilization and drives the development of the seed coat in Arabidopsis.

    Neck linker docking is critical for Kinesin-1 force generation in cells but at a cost to motor speed and processivity

    Breane G Budaitis et al.
    Force generation by kinesin motor proteins requires formation of both a 2-stranded cover-neck bundle and an asparagine-based latch for transport of membrane-bound cargoes in cells.

    A resource-rational theory of set size effects in human visual working memory

    Ronald van den Berg, Wei Ji Ma
    Set size effects in visual working memory are explained as a resource-rational trade-off between an error-based behavioral cost and a neural encoding cost.

    Trajectories of childhood immune development and respiratory health relevant to asthma and allergy

    Howard HF Tang et al.
    Unsupervised cluster analysis identified similar groups of children in different cohorts, with distinct developmental patterns of immunorespiratory health, asthma and allergy.

    Vessel noise levels drive behavioural responses of humpback whales with implications for whale-watching

    Kate R Sprogis et al.
    Controlled exposure experiments reveal that underwater vessel noise level from a motorised vessel is an adequate driver of behavioural disturbance in humpback whales.

    The anti-tubercular drug delamanid as a potential oral treatment for visceral leishmaniasis

    Stephen Patterson et al.
    Biological and pharmacokinetic studies indicate that the anti-tubercular drug, delamanid, could be repurposed for the treatment of visceral leishmaniasis.

    Acknowledging selection at sub-organismal levels resolves controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms

    Wenying Shou
    Building on previous work (Momeni et al., 2013), it is shown that recognizing the hierarchical organization of biological systems resolves the ongoing controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms.

    A cross-sectional study of functional and metabolic changes during aging through the lifespan in male mice

    Michael A Petr et al.
    A comprehensive cross-sectional assessment reveals functional decline in mice consistent with increased energetic cost of physical activity with age through metabolic rewiring in multiple organs.

    Building customizable auto-luminescent luciferase-based reporters in plants

    Arjun Khakhar et al.
    A fungal bioluminescence pathway can be reconstituted in planta to create luminescence in many plant species without external substrate addition, and be used to design customizable reporters of gene-expression.

    The sterol-responsive RNF145 E3 ubiquitin ligase mediates the degradation of HMG-CoA reductase together with gp78 and Hrd1

    Sam A Menzies et al.
    CRISPR/Cas9 genome-wide screens using sterol-sensitive endogenous HMG-CoA reductase (HMGCR) reporter identify the sterol-responsive RNF145 and gp78 as independently responsible for sterol-accelerated degradation of HMGCR, the rate-limiting enzyme of cholesterol biosynthesis.
