    Evolution of irreversible somatic differentiation

    Yuanxiao Gao et al.
    Irreversible differentiation into somatic cells is evolutionarily optimal if changing cell phenotype is costly, a few somatic cells already improve the organism's performance, and the organism is large enough.

    Switch-like and persistent memory formation in individual Drosophila larvae

    Amanda Lesar et al.
    A new computer controlled behavioral assay and integrated training chamber for individual Drosophila larvae shows that larvae learn all at once and create long-term memories that last overnight.

    A projectome of the bumblebee central complex

    Marcel Ethan Sayre et al.
    Serial-section electron microscopy uncovers the intricate neural network of the bumblebee central complex, revealing highly conserved projection patterns as well as novel circuit elements potentially unique to bees.

    A beta-glucosidase of an insect herbivore determines both toxicity and deterrence of a dandelion defense metabolite

    Meret Huber et al.
    An insect digestive enzyme metabolizes a plant defense compound and thereby modulates herbivore performance and host plant choice, which in turn may alter plant defense evolution in nature.

    Autonomous clocks that regulate organelle biogenesis, cytoskeletal organization, and intracellular dynamics

    Mohammad Mofatteh et al.
    Latest advances in biological timing studies substantiate an emerging concept of autonomous clocks that are normally entrained by the cell cycle and/or the circadian clock to run in synchrony, but have evolved to run independently to regulate different cellular events.

    The interplay of RNA:DNA hybrid structure and G-quadruplexes determines the outcome of R-loop-replisome collisions

    Charanya Kumar et al.
    Reconstitution of orientation-specific R-loop-replisome collisions with purified proteins reveals the differential impact of R-loop-associated RNA:DNA hybrids and G-quadruplexes on replication fork progression.

    Dorsal premammillary projection to periaqueductal gray controls escape vigor from innate and conditioned threats

    Weisheng Wang et al.
    Activity in the hypothalamic dorsal premammillary nucleus predicts future escape from threat, represents escape velocity, and controls escape velocity via a projection to the brainstem.

    The dual role of amyloid-β-sheet sequences in the cell surface properties of FLO11-encoded flocculins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Clara Bouyx et al.
    The role of amyloid-β-aggregation sequence and of the various domains in the physiological function of the FLO11-encoded adhesin in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are disclosed in this report.

    Coherent theta activity in the medial and orbital frontal cortices encodes reward value

    Linda M Amarante, Mark Laubach
    The more you want it or the better it is, the stronger is medial frontal theta (paraphrased from a retweet of the preprint by Dr James Hyman).

    Synaptotagmin 7 is targeted to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote synaptic vesicle docking in mouse hippocampal neurons

    Jason D Vevea et al.
    Synaptotagmin 7 is asymmetrically localized to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote vesicle docking during short-term synaptic plasticity in mouse hippocampal neurons.
