Summary: This at a glance article gives an overview of the recent knowledge mainly derived from rodent models regarding the CNS-dependent regulation of energy and glucose homeostasis, and depicts how dysregulation of the involved neuronal networks promotes overnutrition and obesity.


Summary: This Review discusses how induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) provide new opportunities to explore the biology and pathophysiology of lysosomal storage diseases, and how iPSCs have illuminated the role of lysosomes in more common disorders.


Editors' choice: A Drosophila model to study the role of PRODH, a schizophrenia-associated gene, in behavioral disorders.

Summary: A mouse model of metabolic syndrome can be used to investigate peripheral nerve damage, enabling the development of mechanism-based therapies for neuropathy.

Summary: Paneth cell disruption and bacterial exposure in immature murine intestine induces NEC-like pathology. Importantly, this occurs independently of TLR4 activation, presenting an alternative mechanism for disease development.

Summary: Detailed analysis of lipid accumulation, lysosomal dysfunction and neurodegeneration in a Drosophila sphingolipidosis model, suitable for studying the resulting pathological signaling events.

Summary: As well as providing an objective quantitative measure, distinct collagen genes may further aid in the characterization and definition of the development of fibrosis.

Summary: Reduced muscle power output and progressive myofibrillar defects in a Drosophila model of inclusion body myopathy 3 arise from the decreased rate of weak to strong actin-binding transition of myosin.

Summary: A mouse model for renal fibrosis caused by uromodulin mutations reveals roles for ER stress and the unfolded protein response.

Summary: Progesterone treatment is beneficial in preserving the altered mitochondrial functions in cerebral ischemic injury and thus can help in defining better therapies.


Summary: A standardized nomenclature and classification system for zebrafish adipose tissues and regression models to predict expected adipose size during the course of zebrafish development.

Summary: A new CRISPR/Cas9-based method of fluorescent reporter technology in zebrafish to confirm loss of gene function in this model.
