    9Å structure of the COPI coat reveals that the Arf1 GTPase occupies two contrasting molecular environments

    Svetlana O Dodonova et al.
    A molecular model of the assembled COPI coat, determined by cryo-electron tomography of an in vitro reconstituted budding reaction, reveals details of interactions mediating coat assembly and shows the binding site of ArfGAP2.

    Stochasticity in the miR-9/Hes1 oscillatory network can account for clonal heterogeneity in the timing of differentiation

    Nick E Phillips et al.
    Stochasticity introduced computationally into a gene expression oscillator creates heterogeneity in the time of differentiation of identical cells and offers robustness to the progenitor state and the outcome of cell division.

    The golden mimicry complex uses a wide spectrum of defence to deter a community of predators

    Stano Pekár et al.
    A mimetic complex composed of at least 140 species of ants, wasps, spiders, true bugs and treehoppers, all with conspicuous golden bodies, has been discovered.

    Synaptic plasticity through activation of GluA3-containing AMPA-receptors

    Maria C Renner et al.
    A novel form of hippocampal synaptic plasticity is expressed by a change in channel function of GluA3-containing AMPA-receptors.

    Presynaptic morphology and vesicular composition determine vesicle dynamics in mouse central synapses

    Laurent Guillaud et al.
    In central synapses, the mobility and supply of synaptic vesicles are determined by two independent biological factors: the morphological and structural organization of nerve terminals and the molecular signature of vesicles.

    Targeted degradation of BRD9 reverses oncogenic gene expression in synovial sarcoma

    Gerard L Brien et al.
    BRD9 provides the first actionable therapeutic target in synovial sarcoma tumours that is both biochemically and functionally linked to the SS18-SSX fusion protein which drives disease development.

    The intractable challenge of evaluating cattle vaccination as a control for bovine Tuberculosis

    Andrew James Kerr Conlan et al.
    Natural transmission experiments should be prioritised over risky and expensive field trials, in order to establish the impact of cattle vaccination on the transmission of bovine Tuberculosis.

    Optical electrophysiology for probing function and pharmacology of voltage-gated ion channels

    Hongkang Zhang et al.
    Optogenetic tools enable sophisticated measurements of a voltage-gated sodium channel implicated in pain, as well as high-throughput screening of candidate channel blockers.

    Spatial organization shapes the turnover of a bacterial transcriptome

    Jeffrey R Moffitt et al.
    Transcriptome-scale RNA imaging and lifetime measurements reveal that the E. coli transcriptome is spatially organized and that this organization modulates the post-transcriptional fate of bacterial mRNAs.

    Cooperation of the ER-shaping proteins atlastin, lunapark, and reticulons to generate a tubular membrane network

    Songyu Wang et al.
    Experiments with mammalian cells and Xenopus egg extracts elucidate how three proteins cooperate to shape the reticular endoplasmic reticulum network.
