    High neural activity accelerates the decline of cognitive plasticity with age in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Qiaochu Li et al.
    Chronic excitation of the Caenorhabditis elegans oxygen-sensing neurons alters calcium homeostasis to accelerate the decline of neural plasticity with age.

    Genetic timestamping of plasma cells in vivo reveals tissue-specific homeostatic population turnover

    An Qi Xu et al.
    A new system to genetically label and manipulate plasma cells in vivo in their microenvironment resolves current technical limitations and reveals tissue-specific homeostatic population turnover.

    A versatile system to record cell-cell interactions

    Rui Tang et al.
    A novel reporter system that employs cell surface antigen-nanobody pairing enables physical interaction-dependent labeling and functional modification between diverse cell types.

    A sulfur-aromatic gate latch is essential for opening of the Orai1 channel pore

    Priscilla S-W Yeung et al.
    Electrophysiological and molecular modeling studies identify a sulfur-aromatic interaction between the hydrophobic channel gate and a nearby methionine residue, termed the "gate latch", which is essential for Orai1 pore opening.

    Asymmetric neurogenic commitment of retinal progenitors involves Notch through the endocytic pathway

    Elisa Nerli et al.
    A quantitative live imaging approach unveils that earliest neurogenic progenitors in the vertebrate retina arise from asymmetric divisions and that this asymmetry involves Notch signalling through the endocytic pathway.

    Drosophila hedgehog can act as a morphogen in the absence of regulated Ci processing

    Jamie C Little et al.
    Hedgehog acts as a morphogen by regulating proteolytic processing and activation of full-length Ci/Gli transcriptional effectors but can pattern Drosophila wing discs normally in the absence of regulated proteolytic processing.

    Alpha-satellite RNA transcripts are repressed by centromere–nucleolus associations

    Leah Bury et al.
    Single molecule FISH analysis defines the behavior of centromere-derived alpha-satellite transcripts in intact human cells and reveals a critical role for centromere-nucleolar contacts in repressing alpha-satellite transcription.

    Repression of interrupted and intact rDNA by the SUMO pathway in Drosophila melanogaster

    Yicheng Luo et al.
    SUMO-dependent pathway is responsible for selective repression of damaged rDNA and silencing of intact surplus units revealing an epigenetic mechanism that controls the differential expression of identical sequences in the same cell.

    MicroRNAs of the miR-17~9 family maintain adipose tissue macrophage homeostasis by sustaining IL-10 expression

    Xiang Zhang et al.
    miR-17~92 family of miRNAs control the balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in adipose tissue macrophages, the absence of which leads to disturbed adipose homeostasis.
