    The chromosome 15q25.1 locus is a leading susceptibility region for lung cancer. Here, the authors interrogate three GWAS cohorts with 42,901 individuals to investigate potential pathological pathways such as gated channel activity and neuroactive ligand receptor interaction in lung cancer etiology.

    PARP1 and PARP2 of the PARP family enzymes are involved in DNA damage response. Here the authors report PARP2 activation mechanisms and its role in the formation of branched poly(ADP-ribose) chains in response to DNA damage.

    Bacteria communicate and organize via quorum sensing which is determined by biochemical processes. Here the authors aim to reproduce this behaviour in a system of synthetic active particles whose motion is induced by an external beam which is in turn controlled by a feedback-loop which mimics quorum sensing.

    The development of high efficiency planar-type perovskite solar cell has been lagging behind the mesoporous-type counterpart. Here Yang et al. modify the oxide based electron transporting layer with organic acid and obtain planar-type cells with high certified efficiency of 21.5% and decent stability.

    Solvents play important roles in chemical transformations, but isolating products from solvents is cumbersome and energy-consuming. Here, the authors develop promising alternatives by anchoring the solvent moieties onto porous materials for creating solvation environments in heterogeneous catalysts for efficient biomass conversion.

    Chronic itch affects about 10% of the general population, however current treatments are largely ineffective. Here, the authors show that targeting of inhibitory α2 and α3GABAA receptors reduces itch in mice and in a canine model, suggesting this a potentially useful therapeutic approach.
