    Degradation of Gadd45 mRNA by nonsense-mediated decay is essential for viability

    Jonathan O Nelson et al.
    Excess expression of the Gadd45 mRNA accounts for lethality when nonsense-mediated decay is lost in Drosophila and mammalian cells, revealing that this pathway is a critical gene regulatory mechanism.

    Actin dynamics tune the integrated stress response by regulating eukaryotic initiation factor 2α dephosphorylation

    Joseph E Chambers et al.
    Monomeric actin forms a crucial component of the eIF2α holophosphatase linking the integrated stress response to actin polymeric status.

    MEF2C regulates cortical inhibitory and excitatory synapses and behaviors relevant to neurodevelopmental disorders

    Adam J Harrington et al.
    Mice that lack the autism- and schizophrenia-linked gene MEF2C in cortical neurons have an imbalance of excitatory and inhibitory synapses, and impaired social and cognitive abilities.

    Formation of retinal direction-selective circuitry initiated by starburst amacrine cell homotypic contact

    Thomas A Ray et al.
    Selective synapse formation in a retinal motion-sensitive circuit is orchestrated by starburst amacrine cells, which use homotypic interactions to initiate formation of a dendritic scaffold that recruits projections from circuit partners.

    PPP1R15A-mediated dephosphorylation of eIF2α is unaffected by Sephin1 or Guanabenz

    Ana Crespillo-Casado et al.
    The notion that the drug-like small molecule Sephin1 protects against protein misfolding by selectively disrupting a cellular phosphatase is refuted.

    Loss of ZBTB20 impairs circadian output and leads to unimodal behavioral rhythms

    Zhipeng Qu et al.
    The zinc finger protein ZBTB20 is a morning and evening activity gating factor in mice.

    Transient oxytocin signaling primes the development and function of excitatory hippocampal neurons

    Silvia Ripamonti et al.
    Perturbation of oxytocin signaling causes alterations that may be causally involved in the etiology of oxytocin-related neurobehavioral disorders.

    PTRF/Cavin-1 promotes efficient ribosomal RNA transcription in response to metabolic challenges

    Libin Liu, Paul F Pilch
    PTRF (Cavin-1) mediates metabolism-regulated ribosomal transcription in mature adipocytes, independent of its role in caveolae formation.

    Cell-based HTS identifies a chemical chaperone for preventing ER protein aggregation and proteotoxicity

    Keisuke Kitakaze et al.
    Cell-based high-throughput screening identifies IBT21 as a chemical chaperone, that inhibits ER protein aggregation and prevents the cell death caused by a proteotoxin, the aggregation-prone prion protein.
