Sequential phosphorylation of NDEL1 Ser336/Ser332 by DYRK2 and GSK3β is a novel regulatory step for actin dynamics that contributes to the neurite outgrowth and neuronal arborization in the developing brain.
The circadian clock of Synechococcus elongatus PCC7942 schedules the activity of the transcription factor RpaA, which controls key events in carbon metabolism that contribute to cell fitness in conditions mimicking the natural environment.
The regulatory switch from protection to assimilation, which plants use to exploit natural, fluctuating light, involves movement of the enzyme ferredoxin:NADP(H) oxidoreductase between chloroplast membrane complexes.
From public microbial genomes, VirSorter revealed 12,498 viral genome sequences that expand the map of the global virosphere and whose analyses improve understanding of viral taxonomy, evolution and virus-host interactions.
Dark exposure lowers the MMP9 activation threshold, and subsequent light stimulation to an amblyopic eye is sufficient to induce proteolysis at thalamo-cortical synapses in deprived mouse visual cortex.
How nuclear pore complexes establish their permeability barrier has been a long-standing question; now, this process can be reconstituted by a surprisingly simple and rapid self-assembly of Nup98 FG domains into selective FG phases.
