Immunology and Inflammation
analysis of myeloid cells across animal kingdom reveal neutrophil evolution by colony stimulating factors
Damilola Pinheiro et al.
Genetics and Genomics
Recurrent evolution of high virulence in isolated populations of a DNA virus
Tom Hill, Robert L Unckless
The same host–virus interactions can evolve multiple times in nature, due to the high effective mutation rate of viruses, and provide interesting systems of study.
Does diversity beget diversity in microbiomes?
Naïma Jesse Madi et al.
Evolutionary stasis of the pseudoautosomal boundary in strepsirrhine primates
Rylan Shearn et al.
Sexual dimorphism in trait variability and its eco-evolutionary and statistical implications
Susanne RK Zajitschek et al.
Embryonic origin and serial homology of gill arches and paired fins in the skate,
Victoria A Sleight, J Andrew Gillis
Development from dual-origin mesenchyme with common competence explains anatomical parallels and shared patterning of the jawed vertebrate gill arch and paired fin skeletons.
Conservation of peripheral nervous system formation mechanisms in divergent ascidian embryos
Joshua F Coulcher et al.
Immunology and Inflammation
Homology-guided identification of a conserved motif linking the antiviral functions of IFITM3 to its oligomeric state
Kazi Rahman et al.
A disease-associated polymorphism in a related protein that regulates neurotransmitter release reveals that antiviral protein IFITM3 forms oligomers to rigidify membranes and inhibit virus fusion with cells.
Biochemistry and Chemical Biology
Intracellular complexities of acquiring a new enzymatic function revealed by mass-randomisation of active site residues
Kelsi R Hall et al.
The birth of a bacterial tRNA gene by large-scale, tandem duplication events
Gökçe B Ayan et al.
A bacterial tRNA gene set rapidly evolves, compensating the loss of one tRNA type by large duplication events that increase the gene copy number of a second, different tRNA type.
