Identification of subepithelial mesenchymal cells that induce IgA and diversify gut microbiota | Nature Immunology

IgA is necessary for maintaining gut homeostasis, and its production depends on microbial sampling by the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). Takayanagi and colleagues identify a novel population of mesenchymal cells in the GALT that control M cell differentiation and function of gut epithelium.

  • The evolution of eusociality | Nature

    Eusocial insects, including ants and many wasp and bee species, form hierarchical communities comprising reproductive queens and sterile workers. This means that some individuals sacrifice their own reproductive potential in order to raise the offspring of others, a fact that Darwin recognized as a...

  • Spawning rings of exceptional points out of Dirac cones | Nature

    Exceptional points are singularities in non-Hermitian systems that can produce unusual effects, and it is shown that a Dirac cone in a photonic crystal can generate a continuous ring of exceptional points through flattening the tip of the cone. Exceptional points are singularities in the energy...

  • 3.3-million-year-old stone tools from Lomekwi 3, West Turkana, Kenya | Nature

    Human evolutionary scholars have long supposed that the earliest stone tools were made by the genus Homo and that this technological development was directly linked to climate change and the spread of savannah grasslands. New fieldwork in West Turkana, Kenya, has identified evidence of much earlier...
