[Reproductive Biology] Somatic cells raise sperm barriers


Sperm release is a potential target for contraception. Using time-lapse studies of sperm release from Drosophila testes ex vivo, Dubey et al. found that spermatid – [Read More]

[Cell Memory] Priming for T cell memory in tissues


During infections, dendritic cells prime T cell immunity and drive a subset of T cells to become long-lived memory cells. Memory T cells come in two flavors: those that circulate and – [Read More]

[Energy Efficiency] Better buildings' appetites for energy


Building codes targeting energy efficiency may not lead to obvious reductions in energy consumption, particularly compared with optimistic engineering predictions made before enacting – [Read More]

[Materials Science] Breaking the strongest of bonds


Boron carbide is an extremely hard ceramic used for applications such as bulletproof vests. Its exceptional properties are due to the bond strength in boron-carbon chains and clusters. – [Read More]

[Microporous Compounds] Creating a polybenzene network


Metal-organic framework (MOF) compounds are microporous materials in which inorganic centers are linked with organic ligands. Some network topologies, such as the diamond lattice, are – [Read More]

[Cancer Therapy] A hat trick for differentiation therapy?


Most forms of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are associated with a poor prognosis. One exception is acute promyelocytic leukemia, which is largely curable by two drugs, one originating – [Read More]

[Neuroscience] Explaining gender differences in anxiety


Differences in the way brain neuronal circuits respond to the hormone oxytocin can explain gender-dependent variation in behavior. Li et al. found that a set of oxytocin-responsive – [Read More]
