  • Microbial reduction of metal-organic frameworks enables synergistic
           chromium removal
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13219-w

      Interactions between electroactive bacteria and metal oxides are used for bioremediation. Here, the authors report on the application of Fe(III)-containing metal organic frameworks as substrates for bacterial growth which allow for remediation of lethal levels of chromium with high efficacy over several cycles.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13219-w2019-11-18

  • Quorum sensing modulates the formation of virulent Legionella persisters
           within infected cells
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13021-8

      The pathogenic bacterium Legionella pneumophila infects lung macrophages and environmental amoebae. Here, Personnic et al. show that the pathogen reversibly forms virulent, antibiotic-tolerant subpopulations during infection of macrophages and amoebae, in a process regulated by the Lqs quorum-sensing system.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13021-82019-11-18

  • Geodynamic evolution of southwestern North America since the Late Eocene
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-12950-8

      The tectonic evolution of southwestern North America remains debated. Here, the authors present a complete time-dependent geodynamic model of the tectonic evolution of southwestern North America, which can explain the extensional collapse of the Basin and Range Province since the Late Eocene.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-12950-82019-11-18

  • A network-based approach to identify deregulated pathways and drug effects
           in metabolic syndrome
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13208-z

      Metabolic syndrome is characterized by complex phenotypes that increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Here the authors’ integrative network analysis suggests BTK inhibitor ibrutinib to be a promising treatment through its obesity-associated inflammation lowering effect.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13208-z2019-11-18

  • Interspecific introgression mediates adaptation to whole genome
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13159-5

      Whole genome duplication (WGD) presents new challenges to the establishment of optimal allelic combinations and to the meiotic machinery. Here, the authors show that adaptive gene flow from Arabidopsis arenosa could rescue the nascent A. lyrata from extinction following WGD.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13159-52019-11-18

  • Controlled nonlinear magnetic damping in spin-Hall nano-devices
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13246-7

      Nonlinear damping enhancement imposes strict limitations on the operation and efficiency of magnetic nano-devices. Here the authors show that nonlinear damping can be controlled by the ellipticity of magnetization precession, which provides a route for the implementation of efficient active spintronic and magnonic devices driven by spin current.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13246-72019-11-18

  • Inhibition of DNA damage response at telomeres improves the detrimental
           phenotypes of Hutchinson–Gilford Progeria Syndrome
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13018-3

      Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome causes premature aging. Here the authors show that activation of the DNA damage response at dysfunctional telomeres and transcription of telomeric non-coding RNAs contributes to the pathogenesis, which can be ameliorated by treatment with sequence-specific telomeric antisense oligonucleotides.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-13018-32019-11-18

  • Key drivers of cloud response to surface-active organics
    • Nature Communications, Published online: 18 November 2019; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-12982-0

      Aerosol-cloud interactions are a large source of uncertainty in radiative forcing estimates. Here, the authors show that the radiative effects of clouds are influenced by a combination of aerosol particle distribution, environmental conditions and atmosphere dynamics.Nature Communications, Published online: 2019-11-18; doi:10.1038/s41467-019-12982-02019-11-18
