Many animals use acoustic signals to attract a potential mating partner. In fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster), the courtship pulse song has a species-specific interpulse interval (IPI) that activates mating. Although a series of auditory neurons in the fly brain exhibit...

Color vision extracts spectral information by comparing signals from photoreceptors with different visual pigments. Such comparisons are encoded by color-opponent neurons that are excited at one wavelength and inhibited at another. Here, we examine the circuit implementation of color-opponent processing...

HIV-1 Nef-mediated CD4 downmodulation involves various host factors. We investigated the importance of AP-1, AP-2, AP-3, V1H-ATPase, β-COP, and ACOT8 for CD4 downmodulation in HIV-1-infected short hairpin RNA (shRNA)-expressing CD4(+) T cells and characterized direct interaction with Nef by Förster...
