Nature Communications, Published online: 02 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-11054-7 Oct4, along with Sox2 and Klf4 can induce pluripotency, but structurally similar factors like Oct6 cannot. Here, using pluripotency competent and incompetent factors, the authors show that Sox2 plays a dominant role in facilitating chromatin opening at Oct4 bound DNA early during reprogramming to pluripotency.

Evolution of fast root gravitropism in seed plants

Nature Communications, Published online: 02 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-11471-8 Root gravitropism anchors land plants to the ground and enables water uptake. Here, Zhang et al. define polar targeting of PIN2-like proteins as a major evolutionary innovation promoting shootward auxin transport and faster gravitropic responses of seed plants compared to basal vascular relatives.

Molecular basis for the binding and selective dephosphorylation of Na+/H+ exchanger 1 by calcineurin

Nature Communications, Published online: 02 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-11391-7 The mechanism by which Ser/Thr protein phosphatases specifically recruit and dephosphorylate their substrates is largely unclear. Hear, the authors elucidate how the Ser/Thr protein phosphatase calcineurin is recruited to its substrate NHE1 and how site-specific dephosphorylation is achieved.

TeraVR empowers precise reconstruction of complete 3-D neuronal morphology in the whole brain

Nature Communications, Published online: 02 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-11443-y Reconstructing the full shape of neurons is a major informatics challenge as it requires handling huge whole-brain imaging datasets. Here the authors present an open-source virtual reality annotation system for precise and efficient data production of neuronal shapes reconstructed from whole brains.

Pulsating star changes brightness every 5 minutes

A new class of pulsating star varies in brightness every five minutes, researchers report. Scientists can tell a lot about a star by the light it gives off. The color, for example, reveals its surface temperature and the elements in and around it. Brightness correlates with a star’s mass, and for many stars, brightness fluctuates, a bit like a flickering candle. “Many stars pulsate, even our sun
