    Arabidopsis FORGETTER1 mediates stress-induced chromatin memory through nucleosome remodeling

    Krzysztof Brzezinka et al.
    Environmentally-mediated gene induction is extended beyond the duration of an external cue by sustaining a nucleosome-depleted chromatin structure.

    Mechanical force induces mitochondrial fission

    Sebastian Carsten Johannes Helle et al.
    Mechanically stimulating mitochondria causes them to divide via the recruitment of the mitochondrial fission machinery to the mechanically strained site, showing that intracellular organelles can be mechanoresponsive.

    GLO-Roots: an imaging platform enabling multidimensional characterization of soil-grown root systems

    Rubén Rellán-Álvarez et al.
    A luminescence-based imaging system is presented that allows soil-based environmental stimuli to be studied in root systems under physiologically relevant conditions.

    Cross-talk between PRMT1-mediated methylation and ubiquitylation on RBM15 controls RNA splicing

    Li Zhang et al.
    Inhibiting PRMT1 enzymatic activity promotes megakaryocyte terminal differentiation via RBM15-mediated RNA metabolism, which is dysregulated in hematological malignancies.

    B4GAT1 is the priming enzyme for the LARGE-dependent functional glycosylation of α-dystroglycan

    Jeremy L Praissman et al.
    The correct enzymatic activity of a previously misnamed enzyme is defined, placing the enzyme upstream of LARGE in building functional O-mannose structures on α-dystroglycan that are disrupted in multiple forms of congenital muscular dystrophy.

    Proximity labeling of protein complexes and cell-type-specific organellar proteomes in Arabidopsis enabled by TurboID

    Andrea Mair et al.
    Proximity-labeling using engineered biotin ligases TurboID and miniTurbo enables detection of cell-type-specific and low abundance protein complexes and subcellular proteomes in Arabidopsis and other plants.

    A genomic lifespan program that reorganises the young adult brain is targeted in schizophrenia

    Nathan G Skene et al.
    A genetic program controlling brain genes across the lifespan specifies a calendar of changes in cells, synapses and behavioural genes thereby timing the onset of mental illnesses which arise in young adults.

    Salicylate, diflunisal and their metabolites inhibit CBP/p300 and exhibit anticancer activity

    Kotaro Shirakawa et al.
    Salicylic acid, the precursor to aspirin, is an anti-tumor agent that blocks protein acetylation.

    Increasing evidence of mechanical force as a functional regulator in smooth muscle myosin light chain kinase

    Fabian Baumann et al.
    Atomic force microscopy based single-molecule force spectroscopy of smooth muscle myosin light chain kinase strongly indicates the existence of a mechanically triggerable activation pathway analogous to its well-established biochemical regulation pathway via calcium-loaded calmodulin.

    Systematic bacterialization of yeast genes identifies a near-universally swappable pathway

    Aashiq H Kachroo et al.
    Despite billions of years of divergence, a majority of prokaryotic genes can functionally replace their essential eukaryotic counterparts, revealing broad preservation of ancestral functions and identifying heme biosynthesis as a near-universally swappable pathway.
