    miR-142 orchestrates a network of actin cytoskeleton regulators during megakaryopoiesis

    Elik Chapnik et al.
    miR-142 is instrumental for actin homeostasis, and its loss disrupts the cytoskeleton organization and thrombopoiesis of megakaryocytes.

    Cdc4 phospho-degrons allow differential regulation of Ame1CENP-U protein stability across the cell cycle

    Miriam Böhm et al.
    The cell cycle machinery regulates the assembly of the multi-protein kinetochore complex by targeting excess subunits for degradation via the proteasome.

    Protective role of neuronal and lymphoid cannabinoid CB2 receptors in neuropathic pain

    David Cabañero et al.
    Operant drug self-administration in a mouse model of neuropathic pain reveals pain-relieving effects of a cannabinoid CB2 receptor agonist that are mediated through CB2 receptors of neurons and lymphocytes.

    Improving a probabilistic cytoarchitectonic atlas of auditory cortex using a novel method for inter-individual alignment

    Omer Faruk Gulban et al.
    Inter-individual human brain alignment that uses macro-anatomical priors in addition to cortical curvature improves micro-anatomical correspondence between auditory areas.

    BRCT domains of the DNA damage checkpoint proteins TOPBP1/Rad4 display distinct specificities for phosphopeptide ligands

    Matthew Day et al.
    Structural and biochemical analyses of BRCT domain interactions defines TOPBP1/Rad4 selectivity for phosphorylated motifs, allowing identification of new interactions, and providing insights into assembly of different TOPBP1-scaffolded DNA repair complexes.

    Vibrio deploys type 2 secreted lipase to esterify cholesterol with host fatty acids and mediate cell egress

    Suneeta Chimalapati et al.
    Considering the course of a pathogen's evolution, there appears to be interplay between secretion systems, providing unique, synergistic mechanisms to support a successful lifestyle for possibly pathogenesis, symbiosis and/or parasitosis.

    SnRK1-triggered switch of bZIP63 dimerization mediates the low-energy response in plants

    Andrea Mair et al.
    The transcription factor bZIP63 is a key regulator of the starvation response in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and is directly targeted by the kinase SnRK1.

    Origin and evolution of the nuclear auxin response system

    Sumanth K Mutte et al.
    The system that controls gene expression by the plant signaling molecule auxin has deep evolutionary roots, and stepwise increases in system complexity shaped the highly diverse auxin response in land plants.
