    The splicing regulator PTBP1 controls the activity of the transcription factor Pbx1 during neuronal differentiation

    Anthony J Linares et al.
    The RNA binding protein PTBP1 controls an extensive program of alternative splicing in embryonic stem cells, one function of which is to repress neuronal transcriptional programs.

    Cryo-EM structure of the rhodopsin-Gαi-βγ complex reveals binding of the rhodopsin C-terminal tail to the gβ subunit

    Ching-Ju Tsai et al.
    The structure of a light-sensitive G protein-coupled receptor in complex with a Gi-protein heterotrimer provides a structural foundation for the role of the receptor C-terminal tail in scaffolding and signaling.

    Random sub-diffusion and capture of genes by the nuclear pore reduces dynamics and coordinates inter-chromosomal movement

    Michael Chas Sumner et al.
    Measuring and simulating chromatin dynamics reveals that repositioning of genes to the nuclear pore is neither active nor vectorial, but reduces sub-diffusion and coordinates movement between loci on different chromosomes.

    Antigen presentation and tumor immunogenicity in cancer immunotherapy response prediction

    Shixiang Wang et al.
    Tumor immunogenicity is quantified with a novel method, and the resulting tumor immunogenicity score is an effective tumor-inherent biomarker for prediction of response to immune checkpoint inhibitors.

    BLADE-ON-PETIOLE proteins act in an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex to regulate PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR 4 abundance

    Bo Zhang et al.
    The abundance of the PIF4 transcription factor, central in light and temperature signaling, is controlled by an E3 ligase encoded by BOP proteins.

    Toxoplasma gondii F-actin forms an extensive filamentous network required for material exchange and parasite maturation

    Javier Periz et al.
    In contrast to current knowledge that predicts that apicomplexan actin is unconventional, use of Chromobodies demonstrate that Toxoplasma F-actin forms a long, stable, highly dynamic tubular network that is required for material transfer and parasite maturation.

    Akt phosphorylates insulin receptor substrate to limit PI3K-mediated PIP3 synthesis

    Alison L Kearney et al.
    Akt phosphorylates insulin receptor substrate to engage negative feedback and limit signal propagation.

    A tryparedoxin-coupled biosensor reveals a mitochondrial trypanothione metabolism in trypanosomes

    Samantha Ebersoll et al.
    African trypanosomes have a trypanothione-based mitochondrial thiol redox metabolism.

    Social communication of predator-induced changes in Drosophila behavior and germ line physiology

    Balint Z Kacsoh et al.
    Reproductive behavior is conferred from experienced to naïve Drosophila as a behavioral social strategy allowing naïve groups to anticipate a threat from a predator.
