    Early structural and functional plasticity alterations in a susceptibility period of DYT1 dystonia mouse striatum

    Marta Maltese et al.
    Structural and functional striatal synaptic plasticity abnormalities occur early in a sensitive developmental period, representing a potential unique endophenotypic traits that increase the risk of manifesting clinical symptoms in DYT1 mutation carriers.

    A role for cerebellum in the hereditary dystonia DYT1

    Rachel Fremont et al.
    The most common inherited dystonia, DYT1, is likely caused primarily by the dysfunction of the cerebellum rather than the basal ganglia.

    A Myt1 family transcription factor defines neuronal fate by repressing non-neuronal genes

    Joo Lee et al.
    First comprehensive genetic analysis of a Myt1 family protein reveals that neurogenesis requires direct repression of non-neuronal identities by the Myt1 family protein through MuvB co-repressor complex.

    Direct screening for chromatin status on DNA barcodes in yeast delineates the regulome of H3K79 methylation by Dot1

    Hanneke Vlaming et al.
    The interrogation of histone modifications on DNA barcodes enables efficient and direct screening for epigenetic regulators in thousands of mutants in parallel.

    DET1-mediated degradation of a SAGA-like deubiquitination module controls H2Bub homeostasis

    Amr Nassrallah et al.
    Light signaling components interact with a histone H2B deubiquitination module, adjusting chromatin states at global level during Arabidopsis seedling development.

    DYT1 dystonia increases risk taking in humans

    David Arkadir et al.
    Patients with DYT1 dystonia show aberrant risk-aversion in a simple decision-making task, in accordance with predictions of a reinforcement learning model of corticostriatal trial-and-error learning.

    A cell autonomous torsinA requirement for cholinergic neuron survival and motor control

    Samuel S Pappas et al.
    Conditional deletion of the DYT1 dystonia protein torsinA causes selective cell autonomous neurodegeneration of striatal and brainstem cholinergic neurons, and severe motor behavioral abnormalities.

    IFT trains in different stages of assembly queue at the ciliary base for consecutive release into the cilium

    Jenna L Wingfield et al.
    Multimegadalton intraflagellar transport (IFT) trains assemble by sequential recruitment of IFT subcomplexes from the cell body to the ciliary basal bodies and tubulin, the main IFT cargo, is loaded briefly before trains depart.
