6 Recommended Articles from PLOS Biology Senior Editor Ines Alvarez-Garcia

Our staff editors continue to share recent exciting, interesting, and thought-provoking PLOS Biology reads in this recommended articles series. This week, Senior Editor Ines Alvarez-Garcia shares 6 picks for the PLOS Biology community.

Selective enhancement of low-gamma activity by tACS improves phonemic processing and reading accuracy in dyslexia

From the Abstract:

“These findings establish a causal role of neural oscillations in phonological processing and offer solid neurophysiological grounds for a potential correction of low-gamma anomalies and for alleviating the phonological deficit in dyslexia (…)”

Correlative light electron ion microscopy reveals in vivo localisation of bedaquiline in Mycobacterium tuberculosis–infected lungs

From the Abstract:

“Here, we developed correlative light, electron, and ion microscopy in tissue (CLEIMiT) and used it to identify the cell type–specific accumulation of an antibiotic in lung lesions of mice infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (…)

Sequence heterochrony led to a gain of functionality in an immature stage of the central complex: A fly–beetle insight

From the Abstract:

“Further, we provide, to our knowledge, the first example of sequence heterochrony in brain development, where certain developmental steps changed their position within the ontogenetic progression (…)

The noncoding small RNA SsrA is released by Vibrio fischeri and modulates critical host responses

From the Abstract:

“This study reveals the potential for a bacterial symbiont’s sRNAs not only to control its own activities but also to trigger critical responses promoting homeostasis in its host (…)

A novel terpene synthase controls differences in anti-aphrodisiac pheromone production between closely related Heliconius butterflies

“We find no evidence for TPS activity in HcydOS (HmelOS ortholog of Hcydno), suggesting that the loss of (E)-β-ocimene in this species is the result of coding, not regulatory, differences(…)

Identification of 3′ UTR motifs required for mRNA localization to myelin sheaths in vivo

“We bioinformatically identified motifs common in 3′ UTRs from 3 myelin-enriched transcripts and determined that these motifs are required and sufficient in a context-dependent manner for mRNA transport to myelin sheaths(…)
