The rhoptry protein RhopH3 is crucial for the invasion and growth of the malaria parasite and disruption of it provides insight into the binding of the parasite to the host red blood cell and into the formation of new import pathways.
The modularity and unequivocal input/response of Notch signaling are harnessed to measure cell-surface shedding of diverse transmembrane receptors to identify new proteolytic switches and detect modulation of proteolysis by therapeutics.
Aβ inhibitors effectively block its aggregation, while also reducing seeding of tau aggregation from Aβ, tau, and AD derived fibrils, suggesting the two share a structurally related disease relevant interface.
Broader case variation in respiratory viral load, and in shedding virus via droplets and aerosols, for SARS-CoV-2 than influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 facilitates greater transmission heterogeneity in the COVID-19 pandemic than the 2009 flu pandemic.
A distinctive recurrent network motif in the Drosophila central brain enables neurons that encode angular velocity to shift population activity in compass neurons, thereby updating their heading representation whenever the fly turns.
