    ZMYND10 functions in a chaperone relay during axonemal dynein assembly

    Girish R Mali et al.
    Chaperoning defects in axonemal dynein subunits trigger proteostatic clearance of dynein motors opening up the possibility of trialling proteostasis modulators to treat the motile ciliopathy primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD).

    Association mapping from sequencing reads using k-mers

    Atif Rahman et al.
    Associations can be mapped using k-mer frequencies in sequencing reads without prior sequencing of a reference genome enabling detection of associations to variants of multiple types and outside of the reference.

    Assessing reliability in neuroimaging research through intra-class effect decomposition (ICED)

    Andreas M Brandmaier et al.
    In human neuroimaging, the intra-class effect decomposition (ICED) framework indexes overall reliability, and enables researchers to identify and quantify multi-source contributions to measurement error with the goal of developing more reliable measures.

    Histone H3 threonine 11 phosphorylation by Sch9 and CK2 regulates chronological lifespan by controlling the nutritional stress response

    Seunghee Oh et al.
    Histone H3T11 phosphorylation regulates chronological lifespan by linking nutritional stress-response signals to chromatin.

    iTAP, a novel iRhom interactor, controls TNF secretion by policing the stability of iRhom/TACE

    Ioanna Oikonomidi et al.
    Secretion of the inflammatory cytokine TNF requires a protein called iTAP/FrmD8, which controls the cell surface stability of the TNF shedding machinery, iRhom2 and TACE/ADAM17.

    FRMD8 promotes inflammatory and growth factor signalling by stabilising the iRhom/ADAM17 sheddase complex

    Ulrike Künzel et al.
    The protein FRMD8 binds to iRhom and thereby stabilises the iRhom/ADAM17 complex, which is the primary trigger of inflammatory signalling.
