    Deleting Mecp2 from the cerebellum rather than its neuronal subtypes causes a delay in motor learning in mice

    Nathan P Achilly et al.
    The loss of Mecp2 results in cerebellar dysfunction that contributes to the motor deficits in Rett syndrome.

    A dietary sterol trade-off determines lifespan responses to dietary restriction in Drosophila melanogaster females

    Brooke Zanco et al.
    Micronutrients, not macronutrients, regulate lifespan.

    Data-driven reduction of dendritic morphologies with preserved dendro-somatic responses

    Willem AM Wybo et al.
    A flexible and accurate methodology to fit reduced compartmental models to dendritic morphologies shows that models with very few compartments can capture many dendritic computations.

    Release probability increases towards distal dendrites boosting high-frequency signal transfer in the rodent hippocampus

    Dmitri A Rusakov et al.
    Excitatory synapses that occur further away from the postsynaptic cell soma exhibit greater neurotransmitter release probability, which appears to improve signal transfer fidelity for high-frequency afferent firing.

    Differential impact of BTK active site inhibitors on the conformational state of full-length BTK

    Raji E Joseph et al.
    The first-in-class kinase inhibitor, Ibrutinib, destabilizes its autoinhibited Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) target, and a remote resistance mutation causes global structural changes that activate BTK catalytic activity.

    Asymmetric random walks reveal that the chemotaxis network modulates flagellar rotational bias in Helicobacter pylori

    Jyot D Antani et al.
    Asymmetric forward and backward swimming speeds reveal that the rotational bias, and not reversal frequencies, is an appropriate measure of chemotaxis signaling in Helicobacter pylori..

    A novel motif of Rad51 serves as an interaction hub for recombination auxiliary factors

    Negar Afshar et al.
    Although Rad51 is the central protein involved in recombinational DNA repair, multiple auxiliary factors potentiate its activity by binding to a single, evolutionarily conserved motif.

    Ral GTPases promote breast cancer metastasis by controlling biogenesis and organ targeting of exosomes

    Shima Ghoroghi et al.
    A combination of animal models reveal how the molecular mechanisms of exosome secretion (RalA/B-dependent) are linked to their cargo content and their function in breast cancer pre-metastatic niche formation.

    Universal and taxon-specific trends in protein sequences as a function of age

    Jennifer E James et al.
    Ancient protein domains remain shaped by amino acid availability during early life, while young animal proteins are shaped by a need for high intrinsic structural disorder.

    Subcellular sequencing of single neurons reveals the dendritic transcriptome of GABAergic interneurons

    Julio D Perez et al.
    Single somata and dendrites of individual rat neurons were laser-captured and sequenced to discover and compare the subcellular transcriptomes, identifying over 4000 mRNAs in GABAergic dendrites.
