    RNA-guided assembly of Rev-RRE nuclear export complexes

    Yun Bai et al.
    Tertiary folding of the Rev-response element (RRE) in HIV RNA ensures the rapid formation of the Rev-RRE viral ribonucleoprotein particle via a two-step process.

    RNA-directed remodeling of the HIV-1 protein Rev orchestrates assembly of the Rev–Rev response element complex

    Bhargavi Jayaraman et al.
    A pliable hydrophobic interface in the HIV-1 Rev protein enables assembly of diverse oligomeric structures, guided by the RRE scaffold present in HIV-1 mRNAs.

    The export receptor Crm1 forms a dimer to promote nuclear export of HIV RNA

    David S Booth et al.
    The nuclear export receptor Crm1 cooperatively binds its HIV Rev-RRE cargo as a dimer using a species-specific interface that supports viral replication by enhancing nuclear export of HIV RNA.

    Herpes simplex type 2 virus deleted in glycoprotein D protects against vaginal, skin and neural disease

    Christopher Petro et al.
    An attenuated Herpes simplex type 2 virus deleted in glycoprotein D can be used as an effective vaccine to provide robust transferable humoral immunity and complete protection in murine intravaginal and skin infection models.

    Comparative genomics explains the evolutionary success of reef-forming corals

    Debashish Bhattacharya et al.
    The analysis of 20 coral genomic datasets provides unprecedented insights into what makes reef-building corals unique, including the evolution of novel gene families involved in biomineralization, signaling and stress responses that have led to their evolutionary success throughout the Phanerozoic Eon.

    Asymmetric conformational maturation of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase

    Xunhai Zheng et al.
    HIV-1 reverse transcriptase uses a metamorphic polymerase domain that minimizes its coding requirements but requires a complex maturation process.

    Modelling dynamics in protein crystal structures by ensemble refinement

    B Tom Burnley et al.
    A combination of molecular dynamics simulations and X-ray diffraction data has been used to construct more realistic models of proteins and to provide new insights into their interactions with other proteins and biomolecules.

    Rhabdo-immunodeficiency virus, a murine model of acute HIV-1 infection

    Rachel A Liberatore et al.
    A new animal model permits the in vivo study of HIV-1 entry, as well as the elicitation and antiviral activity of antibodies, in a genetically manipulatable host.

    Chemical perturbation of an intrinsically disordered region of TFIID distinguishes two modes of transcription initiation

    Zhengjian Zhang et al.
    An inorganic tin oxochloride cluster specifically binds to an intrinsically disordered, histidine-rich, low complexity protein region and arrests de novo transcription initiation without affecting reinitiation.

    ARID1A loss in adult hepatocytes activates β-catenin-mediated erythropoietin transcription

    Rozenn Riou et al.
    A chromatin remodeling factor cooperates with Wnt signaling pathway to transcribe erythropoietin in the adult liver, inducing its secretion and a dramatic erythropoiesis in the spleen.
