    Cell type-specific and time-dependent light exposure contribute to silencing in neurons expressing Channelrhodopsin-2

    Alexander M Herman et al.
    Optogenetic techniques, whereby light is used to activate neuronal cells, are quickly becoming widely used in neuroscience; but excessive exposure to light can actually silence certain types of neuronal cells.

    Structure of a type IV pilus machinery in the open and closed state

    Vicki AM Gold et al.
    Electron cryo-tomography reveals a huge conformational change in the secretin domain of the type IV pilus machinery that occurs when the channel opens for pilus extrusion.

    Possible magneto-mechanical and magneto-thermal mechanisms of ion channel activation in magnetogenetics

    Mladen Barbic
    Several new magneto-mechanical and magneto-thermal mechanisms of ion channel activation in magnetogenetics are proposed that may explain some of the mysteries that challenge current understanding of the magnetogenetics experiments.

    Neonatal-derived IL-17 producing dermal γδ T cells are required to prevent spontaneous atopic dermatitis

    Nicholas A Spidale et al.
    Neonatal-origin dermal Tγδ17 cells are required to maintain normal keratinocytes and prevent spontaneous atopic dermatitis.

    Thermal acclimation of tropical coral reef fishes to global heat waves

    Jacob L Johansen et al.
    The ability of animals to adjust to thermal stress is critical for survival under global warming, yet the adjustment process and scope have (until now) remained obscure in marine fishes.

    ODELAM, rapid sequence-independent detection of drug resistance in isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Thurston Herricks et al.
    Time-lapse live cell imaging of single Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli growing into small colonies enables their rapid phenotypic characterization including anti-microbial resistance and heteroresistance in clinical isolates.

    Re-expression of SMARCA4/BRG1 in small cell carcinoma of ovary, hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT) promotes an epithelial-like gene signature through an AP-1-dependent mechanism

    Krystal Ann Orlando et al.
    BRG1 loss drives initiation and progression in human cancers through changes in specific differentiation programs in an AP-1-dependent manner.
    1. Cell Biology

    chTOG is a conserved mitotic error correction factor

    Jacob A Herman et al.
    The conserved chTOG protein is required to destabilize incorrect kinetochore-microtubule attachments.

    Distinct inflammatory and wound healing responses to complex caudal fin injuries of larval zebrafish

    Veronika Miskolci et al.
    Thermal injury and infected wounds induce distinct inflammatory and remodeling mechanisms that alter the dynamics of wound repair.

    Consensus designs and thermal stability determinants of a human glutamate transporter

    Erica Cirri et al.
    A fast evolutionary approach to engineer membrane protein kinetic stability yields folded excitatory neurotransmitter transporters and provides insights into their denaturing pathway.
