    Owing to their lack of a conventional cavity, random lasers typically do not emit a defined beam in a specific direction. Here, the authors combine spatial solitons and collinear pumping to achieve light-confined random lasing with a smooth output profile and a controllable direction of emission.

    The bacterial type III secretion system of Gram-negative bacteria uses its core, the needle complex, to penetrate through the infected host cell membrane. Here authors show a near-atomic resolution structure of a needle complex which sheds light on the assembly and function of this nanomachine.

    Sunlight-harvesting materials require the clean integration of light-absorbing and catalytic components to be efficient. Here, authors link silicon photoelectrodes and molybdenum sulfide catalysts with defect-free gallium nitride nanowire to improve photoelectrochemical hydrogen evolution.

    Insulin-like polypeptide binding proteins (IBPs) from insects can bind diverse insulin-like proteins (ILPs) including human insulin and IGFs. Here, the authors present structures of a Drosophila IBP in its free and ILP-bound forms, providing insights into the regulation of ILP bioavailability by insect IBPs.

    The function of genes linked to type 2 diabetes is poorly characterized. Here the authors combine Drosophila genetics and physiology with human islet biology to identify new regulators of insulin secretion including BCL11A.

    Metabolic reprogramming of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Here, Dai et al. show that the glycolytic enzyme alpha-enolase contributes to this reprogramming, and that its inhibition limits SMC proliferation and disease progression in animal models of PAH.
