    Unique-region phosphorylation targets LynA for rapid degradation, tuning its expression and signaling in myeloid cells

    Ben F Brian IV et al.
    The ubiquitin ligase c-Cbl preferentially targets unique-region phosphorylated LynA for rapid degradation, regulating its expression and differentially tuning signaling responsiveness in macrophages and mast cells.

    Multi-enhancer transcriptional hubs confer phenotypic robustness

    Albert Tsai et al.
    Multiple enhancers in physical proximity can reinforce shared transcriptional 'hubs' to preserve their transcriptional output, providing a buffer during environmental stresses and genetic perturbations to preserve phenotypic robustness.

    Front-end Weber-Fechner gain control enhances the fidelity of combinatorial odor coding

    Nirag Kadakia, Thierry Emonet
    In multi-channel sensory systems, gain adaptation can help maintain not only coding capacity across changes in signal intensity, but also combinatorial representations of odor identity.

    The structure of the yeast Ctf3 complex

    Stephen M Hinshaw et al.
    The cryo-EM structure of the yeast Ctf3 complex enables near-atomic modeling of most Ctf19c/CCAN factors and their interactions.

    Distinct inflammatory and wound healing responses to complex caudal fin injuries of larval zebrafish

    Veronika Miskolci et al.
    Thermal injury and infected wounds induce distinct inflammatory and remodeling mechanisms that alter the dynamics of wound repair.

    Improved CUT&RUN chromatin profiling tools

    Michael P Meers et al.
    Enhancements to the CUT&RUN antibody-targeted nuclease strategy for chromatin profiling include an improved affinity-cleavage fusion protein and digestion protocol, and a simplified calibration strategy.

    Functional divergence of Plexin B structural motifs in distinct steps of Drosophila olfactory circuit assembly

    Ricardo Guajardo et al.
    Systematic in vivo analysis reveals the divergent engagement of Plexin B structural motifs in distinct neurodevelopmental processes and a regulatory role of convertase cleavage in Plexin B signaling.

    Vps8 overexpression inhibits HOPS-dependent trafficking routes by outcompeting Vps41/Lt

    Péter Lőrincz et al.
    Recruitment of HOPS tethering complex to target membranes to promote vesicle fusions requires proper complex assembly and specific small GTPases, and HOPS is not transformed from the related miniCORVET complex.

    Determining cellular CTCF and cohesin abundances to constrain 3D genome models

    Claudia Cattoglio et al.
    Absolute quantification of CTCF and cohesin reveals quantitative constraints on 3D genome organization and illuminates the molecular architecture of the cohesin complex.

    Asymmetry between the two acidic patches dictates the direction of nucleosome sliding by the ISWI chromatin remodeler

    Robert F Levendosky, Gregory D Bowman
    Unlike Chd1, ISWI remodelers preferentially shift asymmetric nucleosomes toward the side possessing a wild type acidic patch, regardless of DNA lengths flanking the nucleosome.
