    Condensation tendency and planar isotropic actin gradient induce radial alignment in confined monolayers

    Tianfa Xie et al.
    Radial alignment in confined cell monolayers with isotropic actin network is found to be mediated by the condensation tendency and tissue-scale actin gradient.

    Environmental fluctuations reshape an unexpected diversity-disturbance relationship in a microbial community

    Christopher P Mancuso et al.
    Laboratory experiments using a microbial community and mathematical modeling reveal how environmental disturbances can predictably alter the diversity and composition of an ecosystem.

    Integrin α5β1 nano-presentation regulates collective keratinocyte migration independent of substrate rigidity

    Jacopo Di Russo et al.
    The use of nanopatterned hydrogels and specific integrin α5β1 peptidomimetic revealed that keratinocytes require an optimum inter-ligand spacing to best propagate intercellular forces and efficiently coordinate cell sheet migration.

    Conserved visual capacity of rats under red light

    Nader Nikbakht, Mathew E Diamond
    Psychometric measures reveal that, contrary to common assumption, rats have good visual form discrimination capacity under red and even far-red illumination.

    An hourglass circuit motif transforms a motor program via subcellularly localized muscle calcium signaling and contraction

    Steven R Sando et al.
    By driving the localized contraction of subcellular muscle regions, a single motor neuron reverses the flow of material in the Caenorhabditis elegans pharynx, a neuromuscular pump, converting feeding into spitting.

    Genetically incorporated crosslinkers reveal NleE attenuates host autophagy dependent on PSMD10

    Jingxiang Li et al.
    Transient interactions between NleE and PMSD10 suppress PSMD10 interaction with ATG7 to attenuate host autophagosome formation.

    Distinct synaptic transfer functions in same-type photoreceptors

    Cornelius Schröder et al.
    The ribbon synapses of zebrafish UV-cone photoreceptors preferentially transmit transient or sustained components in light-stimuli depending on their location in the eye.

    Propelling and perturbing appendages together facilitate strenuous ground self-righting

    Ratan Othayoth, Chen Li
    Animals can, and robots should, use different types of appendages together to propel and perturb themselves to self-right when overturned, a strenuous yet crucial locomotor task.

    Somatic aging pathways regulate reproductive plasticity in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Maria C Ow et al.
    Somatic aging and germline RNAi pathways promote inheritance of ancestral starvation memory through reallocation of fat storage in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Pak1 and PP2A antagonize aPKC function to support cortical tension induced by the Crumbs-Yurt complex

    Cornelia Biehler et al.
    Cell biology analyses in Drosophila epithelial tissues reveal novel mechanisms connecting epithelial polarity proteins with Myosin-dependent cell contractility.
