Unraveling the role of vaporization momentum in self-jumping dynamics of freezing supercooled droplets at reduced pressures

Nature Communications, Published online: 21 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41467-024-45928-2The momentum transport dynamics of a vaporizing droplet under low pressures remain undiscovered. Here authors report the vaporization momentum resulting from the intensive vaporization on the free surface of the water droplet contributes to the self-detachment of...

Elastic properties and tensile strength of 2D Ti<sub>3</sub>C<sub>2</sub>T<sub>x</sub> MXene monolayers

Nature Communications, Published online: 21 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41467-024-45657-6The Young’s modulus of the MXene Ti3C2Tx, theoretically predicted to be 0.502 TPa, has not yet been experimentally confirmed. This work supplants previous reports using nanoindentation with the correctly measured Young’s modulus of 0.484 ± 0.013 TPa.

Heterogeneity of synaptic connectivity in the fly visual system

Nature Communications, Published online: 21 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41467-024-45971-zWhether there is an exception to the homogenous wiring rule in visual systems remain largely unknown. Here authors reveal heterogeneity in the synaptic connectivity of cell types in the fly eye. Thus, parallel units of the eye will compute the same visual input...

Superexchange-stabilized long-distance Cu sites in rock-salt-ordered double perovskite oxides for CO<sub>2</sub> electromethanation

Nature Communications, Published online: 21 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41467-024-45747-5Cu-oxide-based catalysts are promising for CO2 electromethanation but suffer from inevitable reduction and structural collapse. Here the authors report a Cu-based rock-salt-ordered double perovskite oxide with superexchange-stabilized long-distance Cu sites for...

Meiotic protein SYCP2 confers resistance to DNA-damaging agents through R-loop-mediated DNA repair

Nature Communications, Published online: 21 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41467-024-45693-2Aberrant expression of Synaptonemal complex protein 2 (SYCP2) in breast and ovarian cancers is associated with resistance to drugs targeting the DNA damage response. Here the authors show that SYCP2 confers drug resistance by promoting R-loop formation during transcription-coupled...
