    Identification of protein-protected mRNA fragments and structured excised intron RNAs in human plasma by TGIRT-seq peak calling

    Jun Yao et al.
    Human plasma contains protein-protected mRNA fragments, myriad repeat RNAs, and novel intron RNAs, including a family of structured full-length excised introns, some corresponding to mirtron pre-miRNAs and agotrons.

    Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva mutant ACVR1 signals by multiple modalities in the developing zebrafish

    Robyn S Allen et al.
    The human Fibrodysplasia-Ossificans-Progressiva BMP-receptor mutant signals in zebrafish in the absence of ligand-binding, displays BMP ligand-responsive hyperactivity, neither requiring other type-I-BMP receptors, unlike wild-type, challenging views of the pathological mechanism.

    Hox-dependent coordination of mouse cardiac progenitor cell patterning and differentiation

    Sonia Stefanovic et al.
    Discovering that Hoxb1 acts as a repressor of cardiac differentiation on second heart field progenitor cells helps us to understand the etiology of congenital heart defects such as atrioventricular septal defects.

    Complementary α-arrestin-ubiquitin ligase complexes control nutrient transporter endocytosis in response to amino acids

    Vasyl Ivashov et al.
    Metabolic cues enlist ubiquitin ligase adaptors for the selective control of cellular nutrient acquisition strategies.

    Discovery of surrogate agonists for visceral fat Treg cells that modulate metabolic indices in vivo

    Ricardo A Fernandes et al.
    Surrogate agonist peptide ligands discovered through screening of an IAb-peptide library potentiate expansion of visceral adipose tissue resident regulatory T cells and protect mice from inflammation and improve metabolic indices.

    Osterix-Cre marks distinct subsets of CD45- and CD45+ stromal populations in extra-skeletal tumors with pro-tumorigenic characteristics

    Biancamaria Ricci et al.
    Osterix, a transcription factor regulating osteoblast differentiation and bone formation, is expressed in subsets of CAFs with osteogenic features and marks tumor infiltrating immune populations enriched in immune suppressive markers.

    Host sirtuin 2 as an immunotherapeutic target against tuberculosis

    Ashima Bhaskar et al.
    The inhibition of host Sirtuin-2 by AGK2 restricts mycobacterial growth in vivo by modulation of host transcriptome leading to activation of protective immune responses.

    Interrogating the recognition landscape of a conserved HIV-specific TCR reveals distinct bacterial peptide cross-reactivity

    Juan L Mendoza et al.
    Potential for specific microbiome-directed, MHC-restricted shaping of a commonly selected HIV-specific CD8+ T cell population was suggested by MHC class I yeast display-based peptide screening approaches.

    Assigning mitochondrial localization of dual localized proteins using a yeast Bi-Genomic Mitochondrial-Split-GFP

    Gaétan Bader et al.
    The Bi-Genomic Mitochondrial-Split-GFP, where both fragments of the Split-GFP are expressed by separated translation machineries, shuts off cytosolic fluorescence of dual-localized proteins, allowing visualization of their mitochondrial echoforms.

    A divergent cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase complex controls the atypical replication of a malaria parasite during gametogony and transmission

    Aurélia C Balestra et al.
    Multiple steps of the atypical cell cycles underlying Plasmodium gametogony are controlled by a divergent cyclin/cyclin-dependent complex.
