Built for speed: paranodal junction assembly in high performance nerves
(Medical Xpress)—The nervous system is host to some of the most sophisticated cellular structures found anywhere in the body. The orderly phalanxes of sterocilia which arm the ear's inner hair cells, and the photosensitive dishes stacked into precision-built lipid cup boards in cones of the eye are two fine examples of structures whose function is well understood. An equally intriguing, and perhaps even more elaborate cellular creation, is the uniquely geometric front that is established on the borderland between two myelinating cells that wrap adjoining segments of an axon. In a recent paper in Nature Neuroscience, researchers describe the critical role played by molecules known as ankyrins in the assembly of axoglial junctions, and reveal the surprising origins of these cytoskeletal scaffold proteins.

Biomarker could provide early warning of kidney disease in cats
A new biomarker called 'SDMA' has been developed that can provide earlier identification of chronic kidney disease in cats, which is one of the leading causes of their death. When a test is commercialized, it could help pet owners add months or years to the life of their cat.

It's filamentary: How galaxies evolve in the cosmic web
How do galaxies like our Milky Way form, and just how do they evolve? Are galaxies affected by their surrounding environment? Astronomers now proposes some answers. The researchers highlight the role of the 'cosmic web' -- a large-scale web-like structure comprised of galaxies -- on the evolution of galaxies that took place in the distant universe, a few billion years after the Big Bang.
