  • Negative poisson’s ratio in single-layer black phosphorus
    • Authors: Jin-Wu Jiang, Harold S. Park
      Abstract: Auxetic materials display a negative Poisson’s ratio and are usually observed in engineered structures. Here, the authors observe intrinsic auxetic behaviour in unmodified two-dimensional black phosphorous by first-principles calculations, with the auxetic behaviour resulting from its puckered structure.

    • Authors: Seiji Tsuzuki, Hitoshi Matsumoto, Shunsuke Furihata, Masasuke Ryuda, Hirotoshi Tanaka, Eui Jae Sung, Gary S. Bird, Yixing Zhou, Stephen B. Shears, Yoichi Hayakawa
      Abstract: Insects combat infection using humoral and cellular immunity but it is not fully understood how these mechanisms are coordinated. Here, using Drosophila as a model, the authors show that the PDGF- and VEGF-receptor homologue (Pvr) can direct the nature of innate immune responses expressed by hematocytes.

  • Efficient optical extraction of hot-carrier energy
    • Authors: S. Saeed, E. M. L. D. de Jong, K. Dohnalova, T. Gregorkiewicz
      Abstract: The thermalization of high-energy photons limits the efficient conversion of photon energy in photovoltaic applications. Here, Saeed et al . consider optical extraction of the excess energy of hot carriers by emission of infrared photons, using erbium ions in combination with silicon nanocrystals.

  • Invertebrate extracellular phagocyte traps show that chromatin is an
           ancient defence weapon
    • Authors: Calum T. Robb, Elisabeth A. Dyrynda, Robert D. Gray, Adriano G. Rossi, Valerie J. Smith
      Abstract: The process of controlled chromatin release from the nuclei of inflammatory cells to entrap and kill bacteria, termed ETosis, is important in innate immunity in vertebrates. Here the authors demonstrate that ETosis, mediated by hematocytes, also contributes to defence mechanisms in invertebrates.

  • Achieving solar overall water splitting with hybrid photosystems of
           photosystem II and artificial photocatalysts
    • Authors: Wangyin Wang, Jun Chen, Can Li, Wenming Tian
      Abstract: Solar water splitting is a promising approach for harvesting solar energy but is hindered by sluggish water oxidation. Here, the authors report a hybrid material containing natural photosystem II and an inorganic photocatalyst and evaluate its overall water splitting performance.

  • Revealing the dark side of a bright exciton–polariton condensate
    • Authors: J. -M. Ménard, C. Poellmann, M. Porer, U. Leierseder, E. Galopin, A. Lemaître, A. Amo, J. Bloch, R. Huber
      Abstract: Exciton–polaritons are bosonic quasi-particles resulting from strong coupling of excitons and photons but so far only their photon component had been resolved. Here, Menard et al . monitor the intra-excitonic transitions and study how a reservoir of optically dark excitons forms and feeds the degenerate state.

  • YAP inhibits squamous transdifferentiation of Lkb1-deficient lung
           adenocarcinoma through ZEB2-dependent DNp63 repression
    • Authors: Yijun Gao, Wenjing Zhang, Xiangkun Han, Fuming Li, Xujun Wang, Rui Wang, Zhaoyuan Fang, Xinyuan Tong, Shun Yao, Fei Li, Yan Feng, Yihua Sun, Yingyong Hou, Zhongzhou Yang, Kunliang Guan, Haiquan Chen, Lei Zhang, Hongbin Ji
      Abstract: Lung adenocarcinomas can convert to squamous cell carcinomas, which is associated with cancer progression and therapy resistance. Here, Gao et al . identify YAP as an essential barrier for this phenotypic conversion through ZEB2-mediated DNP63 repression.

  • Compact genome of the Antarctic midge is likely an adaptation to an
           extreme environment
    • Authors: Joanna L. Kelley, Justin T. Peyton, Anna-Sophie Fiston-Lavier, Nicholas M. Teets, Muh-Ching Yee, J. Spencer Johnston, Carlos D. Bustamante, Richard E. Lee, David L. Denlinger
      Abstract: The Antarctic midge, Belgica antarctica , is the only insect endemic to Antarctica. Here, the authors sequence the B. antarctica genome, the smallest insect genome yet reported, and suggest that genes involved in development, metabolism and stimuli response may have had a role in how this insect adapted to survive in such a harsh environment.
