    DAZL mediates a broad translational program regulating expansion and differentiation of spermatogonial progenitors

    Maria M Mikedis et al.
    DAZL promotes male fertility by enhancing the protein expression of thousands of genes to facilitate expansion and differentiation of transit-amplifying spermatogonia in the testes.

    Lipoate-binding proteins and specific lipoate-protein ligases in microbial sulfur oxidation reveal an atpyical role for an old cofactor

    Xinyun Cao et al.
    An unexpected new biological function was discovered for the universally conserved cofactor lipoate, as lipoate-binding proteins proved essential for a novel wide-spread prokaryotic sulfur oxidation pathway.

    A common 1.6 mb Y-chromosomal inversion predisposes to subsequent deletions and severe spermatogenic failure in humans

    Pille Hallast et al.
    In addition to its academic merits, characterizing the genetic determinants of male (in)fertility and identifying clinically actionable genetic variants can lead to improved diagnosis or even treatment of such conditions.

    In situ structural analysis of the Yersinia enterocolitica injectisome

    Mikhail Kudryashev et al.
    The basal body of the type-III secretion system of Yersinia enterocolitica within bacterial membranes shows elasticity and is longer than related isolated systems.

    Inversion of pheromone preference optimizes foraging in C. elegans

    Martina Dal Bello et al.
    Worms' attraction to pheromones turns into repulsion when a food patch is depleted, helping them avoid already exploited territories and search for new food sources.

    The H3K4 methyltransferase Setd1b is essential for hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homeostasis in mice

    Kerstin Schmidt et al.
    The H3K4 methyltransferase Setd1b is intrinsically required for hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell homeostasis and regulates lineage specification in mice.

    The magnesium transporter A is activated by cardiolipin and is highly sensitive to free magnesium in vitro

    Saranya Subramani et al.
    A magnesium transporter from Escherichia coli depends strongly on the lipid cardiolipin and acts both as a sensor and a transporter of magnesium.
