    Mating Behavior: When structure meets function

    Sarah A Signor
    A new study upturns the long-held belief that in fruit flies, the yellow gene determines sex-specific behaviors by acting in the brain.

    Development: Transforming a transcription factor

    Robert D Burke
    A transcription factor that regulates skeleton formation in sea urchin embryos has evolved a new domain that is essential for this process.

    Inference and control of the nosocomial transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

    Sen Pei et al.
    The asymptomatic colonization and importation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in hospital settings can be inferred from observed cases using combined model-inference methods and used to inform improved interventions.

    AMPK and vacuole-associated Atg14p orchestrate μ-lipophagy for energy production and long-term survival under glucose starvation

    Arnold Y Seo et al.
    Upon AMPK activation by acute glucose restriction, Atg14p shifts its distribution from ER exit sites to liquid-ordered membrane domains on the vacuolar surface where, together with Atg6p, it facilitates LD-specific autophagy (i.e., microautophagy of lipid droplets) for energy production and long-term survival of starved cells.

    Coordinated neuronal ensembles in primary auditory cortical columns

    Jermyn Z See et al.
    Auditory cortical columns contain small subsets of neurons with highly synchronous activity (cNEs) that create robust sequences of coordinated activity suitable for enhanced information processing and signal transmission beyond the capability of individual neurons.

    Dual interaction of scaffold protein Tim44 of mitochondrial import motor with channel-forming translocase subunit Tim23

    See-Yeun Ting et al.
    The motor that drives preproteins into the mitochondrial matrix is coupled to the translocase by Tim44, a two-domain scaffold protein with an intrinsically disordered "dynamic arm" and a structurally stable anchoring domain.

    Genetic transformation of structural and functional circuitry rewires the Drosophila brain

    Sonia Sen et al.
    Large-scale changes in the brain's functional circuitry can be brought about by simple changes in gene expression in neural stem cells during development.

    Cohabiting family members share microbiota with one another and with their dogs

    Se Jin Song et al.
    Research on humans and dogs reveals that the communities of microorganisms found on the skin, on the tongue and in the intestine are affected differently by age and cohabitation.

    Neuroblast-specific open chromatin allows the temporal transcription factor, Hunchback, to bind neuroblast-specific loci

    Sonia Q Sen et al.
    Spatial factors generate neuroblast-specific open chromatin, thereby biasing the subsequent binding of transcription factors to produce neuroblast-specific neurons.
