    Excitation of medium spiny neurons by ‘inhibitory’ ultrapotent chemogenetics via shifts in chloride reversal potential

    Stephanie C Gantz et al.
    Modifying membrane potential by an 'inhibitory' chloride conductance such as PSAM4-GlyR is inherently unstable because the normally low intracellular concentration of chloride is readily increased by influx of chloride.

    Investigation of Drosophila fruitless neurons that express Dpr/DIP cell adhesion molecules

    Savannah G Brovero et al.
    Analyses of fru P1 neurons that express dpr/DIP genes reveal roles for subsets of neurons in courtship, and the roles of Dpr/DIPs and the sex hierarchy in neuroanatomical sexual dimorphism.

    Cretaceous dinosaur bone contains recent organic material and provides an environment conducive to microbial communities

    Evan T Saitta et al.
    Subterranean fossil bone hosts a living microbiome different from the surrounding sediment without evidence of original protein preservation.

    Calmodulin-controlled spatial decoding of oscillatory Ca2+ signals by calcineurin

    Sohum Mehta et al.
    The ability of calcium waves to exert different effects on calcineurin activity depending on subcellular location is mediated by the distribution of calmodulin.

    SET-9 and SET-26 are H3K4me3 readers and play critical roles in germline development and longevity

    Wenke Wang et al.
    Two SET-domain containing proteins regulate H3K4me3 by their binding to H3K4me3 through their PHD domain and directly regulate expression of a subset of genes.

    Auxin-regulated chromatin switch directs acquisition of flower primordium founder fate

    Miin-Feng Wu et al.
    SWI/SNF chromatin remodeling complexes act as ‘gatekeepers’ for auxin responses and directly interact with the auxin response factor MONOPTEROS.
