    The DWORF micropeptide enhances contractility and prevents heart failure in a mouse model of dilated cardiomyopathy

    Catherine A Makarewich et al.
    Cardiac-specific overexpression of a recently discovered micropeptide, DWORF, enhances calcium cycling and contractility in the heart and rescues the heart failure phenotype of a genetic mouse model of dilated cardiomyopathy.

    Inducible and reversible phenotypes in a novel mouse model of Friedreich’s Ataxia

    Vijayendran Chandran et al.
    Restoration of endogenous frataxin levels reverses neurologic and cardiac phenotypes associated with Friedreich's ataxia in adult mice even after significant motor dysfunction.

    SIRT2 deacetylase regulates the activity of GSK3 isoforms independent of inhibitory phosphorylation

    Mohsen Sarikhani et al.
    Mass spectroscopy, molecular modeling and/or molecular dynamics simulations reveal how acetylation regulates the activity of GSK3 isoforms independent of inhibitory phosphorylation.

    Mechanistic insights into the active site and allosteric communication pathways in human nonmuscle myosin-2C

    Krishna Chinthalapudi et al.
    R788 is part of an allosteric communication pathway that connects the converter at the distal end of the myosin motor domain via the relay helix with switch-2 of the active site.

    Reactive oxygen species-dependent Toll/NF-κB activation in the Drosophila hematopoietic niche confers resistance to wasp parasitism

    Isabelle Louradour et al.
    In the Drosophila hematopoietic microenvironment, a regulatory network involving Toll/NF-B, EGFR signaling and reactive oxygen species controls blood cell production in response to immune stress.

    Extensive alternative splicing transitions during postnatal skeletal muscle development are required for calcium handling functions

    Amy E Brinegar et al.
    Global transcriptome changes, particularly alternative splicing, are highly dynamic the first 2 weeks after birth, and the example of calcineurin A splicing exemplifies the importance of alternative splicing during skeletal muscle development.

    Poly(A) tail length regulates PABPC1 expression to tune translation in the heart

    Sandip Chorghade et al.
    A poly(A) tail-based regulatory mechanism dynamically controls PABPC1 protein synthesis in cardiomyocytes and thereby titrates cellular translation in response to developmental and hypertrophic cues.

    Cyclophilin A-regulated ubiquitination is critical for RIG-I-mediated antiviral immune responses

    Wei Liu et al.
    CypA boosts RIG-I-mediated antiviral immune responses via enhancing K63-linked ubiquitination of RIG-I and inhibiting K48-linked ubiquitination of MAVS.
