Immune responses at the maternal-fetal interface  Science Magazine · 4 days
Pregnancy poses an immunological challenge because a genetically distinct (nonself) fetus must be supported within the pregnant female for the required gestational period. Placentation, or the establishment of the fetally derived placenta, is a common strategy... more
Microfluidic dielectrophoresis illuminates the relationship between microbial cell envelope polarizability and electrochemical activity  Science Magazine · 4 days
Electrons can be transported from microbes to external insoluble electron acceptors (e.g., metal oxides or electrodes in an electrochemical cell). This process... more
Li substituent tuning of LED phosphors with enhanced efficiency, tunable photoluminescence, and improved thermal stability  Science Magazine · 4 days
Solid-state phosphor-converted white light-emitting diodes (pc-WLEDs) are currently revolutionizing the lighting industry. To advance the technology, phosphors with... more
Reliable and practical computational description of molecular crystal polymorphs  Science Magazine · 4 days
Reliable prediction of the polymorphic energy landscape of a molecular crystal would yield profound insight into drug development in terms of the existence and likelihood of late-appearing polymorphs. However, the... more
Direct observation of shift and ballistic photovoltaic currents  Science Magazine · 4 days
The quantum phenomenon of shift photovoltaic current was predicted decades ago, but this effect was never observed directly because shift and ballistic currents coexist. The atomic-scale relaxation time of shift, along with... more
Rapid, continuous additive manufacturing by volumetric polymerization inhibition patterning  Science Magazine · 4 days
Contemporary, layer-wise additive manufacturing approaches afford sluggish object fabrication rates and often yield parts with ridged surfaces; in contrast, continuous stereolithographic printing overcomes the layer-wise operation of conventional devices, greatly... more
Real-time tracking of fluorescent magnetic spore-based microrobots for remote detection of C. diff toxins  Science Magazine · 4 days
A rapid, direct, and low-cost method for detecting bacterial toxins associated with common gastrointestinal diseases remains a great challenge despite... more
FDISCO: Advanced solvent-based clearing method for imaging whole organs  Science Magazine · 4 days
Various optical clearing methods have emerged as powerful tools for deep biological imaging. Organic solvent–based clearing methods, such as three-dimensional imaging of solvent-cleared organs (3DISCO), present the advantages of high... more
Why Japan’s exit from international whaling treaty may actually benefit whales  Science Magazine · 5 days
Commercial whaling will replace a controversial research program, but the market for whale meat is declining more

Recognition of the amyloid precursor protein by human {gamma}-secretase  Science Magazine · 5 days
Cleavage of amyloid precursor protein (APP) by the intramembrane protease -secretase is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. We report an atomic structure of human -secretase in complex with a transmembrane APP... more
An evolutionary perspective on immunometabolism  Science Magazine · 5 days
Metabolism is at the core of all biological functions. Anabolic metabolism uses building blocks that are either derived from nutrients or synthesized de novo to produce the biological infrastructure, whereas catabolic metabolism generates energy to fuel all biological... more
Comment on "Impacts of species richness on productivity in a large-scale subtropical forest experiment"  Science Magazine · 5 days
Huang et al. (Reports, 5 October 2018, p. 80) report significant increases in forest productivity from monocultures to multispecies mixtures... more
Finite phenine nanotubes with periodic vacancy defects  Science Magazine · 5 days
Discrete graphitic carbon compounds serve as tunable models for the properties of extended macromolecular structures such as nanotubes. Here, we report synthesis and characterization of a cylindrical C304H264 molecule composed of 40 benzene (phenine)... more
