    Herbivory-induced volatiles function as defenses increasing fitness of the native plant Nicotiana attenuata in nature

    Meredith C Schuman et al.
    A 2-year field study has demonstrated that volatile compounds produced by plants when they are attacked by herbivores act as defenses by attracting predators to the herbivores and increasing the reproduction of the plants.

    The unfolded protein response in fission yeast modulates stability of select mRNAs to maintain protein homeostasis

    Philipp Kimmig et al.
    A unique form of regulation has been observed in the unfolded protein response of S. pombe, along with a novel mechanism of post-transcriptional mRNA processing.

    A bacterial sulfonolipid triggers multicellular development in the closest living relatives of animals

    Rosanna A Alegado et al.
    The development of colonies of cells in choanoflagellates, water-dwelling organisms that feed on bacteria, is triggered by the presence of very low concentrations of a lipid molecule produced by certain types of bacteria.

    Molecular architecture of human polycomb repressive complex 2

    Claudio Ciferri et al.
    Electron microscopy has been used to produce the first three-dimensional image of the PRC2 gene-silencing complex.

    Foggy perception slows us down

    Paolo Pretto et al.
    Virtual reality experiments show that motorists slow down when driving in fog, but they speed up when visibility is reduced equally at all distances.

    Membrane immersion allows rhomboid proteases to achieve specificity by reading transmembrane segment dynamics

    Syed M Moin, Sinisa Urban
    Intramembrane proteases identify target proteins in a different way from other proteases.

    Nascent-Seq reveals novel features of mouse circadian transcriptional regulation

    Jerome S Menet et al.
    Genome-wide measurements on mouse liver cells show that transcription, and a particular key transcription factor, have a smaller than expected influence on the mouse circadian system.

    Sodium taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide is a functional receptor for human hepatitis B and D virus

    Huan Yan et al.
    Biochemical and genetic tests have revealed that a liver protein called NTCP is a functional receptor for hepatitis B and D viruses, which should lead to an improved understanding of the infections caused by these viruses and assist the development of new intervention strategies.

    Elba, a novel developmentally regulated chromatin boundary factor is a hetero-tripartite DNA binding complex

    Tsutomu Aoki et al.
    A chromatin boundary factor that is only active during early embryo development has been discovered in Drosophila.
