DNA glycosylases provide antiviral defence in prokaryotes

Nature, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41586-024-07329-9A screen utilizing an environmental DNA library in Escherichia coli is used to identify Brig1, a previously unknown anti-phage defence system with homologues across distinct clades of bacteria.

Hybrid speciation driven by multilocus introgression of ecological traits

Nature, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41586-024-07263-wGenomic studies of Heliconius butterflies provide evidence that Heliconius elevatus is a hybrid species, and that its speciation was driven by introgression of traits from Heliconius melpomene into the other parent, an ancestor of Heliconius pardalinus.

Methane emission from a cool brown dwarf

Nature, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41586-024-07190-wMethane emission from a very cool brown dwarf, perhaps arising from an aurora, has been detected in James Webb Space Telescope observations.

Stepwise activation of a metabotropic glutamate receptor

Nature, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41586-024-07327-xWe propose a model for a sequential, multistep activation mechanism of metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5, including a series of structures in lipid nanodiscs, from inactive to fully active, with agonist-bound intermediate states.

Control of neuronal excitation–inhibition balance by BMP–SMAD1 signalling

Nature, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41586-024-07317-zSignalling by the developmental morphogen BMP2 through the transcription factor SMAD1 has a key role in controlling the glutamatergic innervation of parvalbumin-expressing interneurons and maintaining the balance between excitation and inhibition in the mammalian cortex.
