    Splicing factors Sf3A2 and Prp31 have direct roles in mitotic chromosome segregation

    Claudia Pellacani et al.
    Extensive cytological and biochemical analyses show that the conserved Sf3A2 and Prp31 splicing factors bind microtubules and the Ndc80 complex, playing direct mitotic functions in both Drosophila and human mitosis.

    Condensin controls cellular RNA levels through the accurate segregation of chromosomes instead of directly regulating transcription

    Clémence Hocquet et al.
    Contrary to the generally accepted model, condensin maintains proper gene expression by promoting the accurate segregation of chromosomes and the partitioning of the RNA-exosome throughout mitosis, instead of directly regulating transcription.

    aPKC-mediated displacement and actomyosin-mediated retention polarize Miranda in Drosophila neuroblasts

    Matthew Robert Hannaford et al.
    The actomyosin network and phospho-regulation combine to polarize fate determinants at the Drosophila neuroblast cell cortex.

    Exon junction complex proteins bind nascent transcripts independently of pre-mRNA splicing in Drosophila melanogaster

    Subhendu Roy Choudhury et al.
    Deposition of the exon junction complex is thought to be the missing link between pre-mRNA splicing and translation in multicellular organisms, but no evidence of such deposition has been found in Drosophila.

    Dissecting the pre-placodal transcriptome to reveal presumptive direct targets of Six1 and Eya1 in cranial placodes

    Nick Riddiford, Gerhard Schlosser
    RNA sequencing of the African clawed frog has identified hundreds of putative direct Six1 and Eya1 target genes, including transcriptional regulators of neuronal progenitors and neuronal/sensory differentiation.

    Histone H2B ubiquitylation represses gametogenesis by opposing RSC-dependent chromatin remodeling at the ste11 master regulator locus

    Philippe Materne et al.
    Building on previous work (Materne et al., 2015), it is shown that the ubiquitylation of histone H2B represses cell differentiation by opposing chromatin remodeling at the promoter of the master regulator of gametogenesis, ste11

    The target of the DEAH-box NTP triphosphatase Prp43 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae spliceosomes is the U2 snRNP-intron interaction

    Jean-Baptiste Fourmann et al.
    Prp43 binds to the pre-mRNA and contacts predominantly U2 proteins in the budding yeast spliceosome.

    Targets and genomic constraints of ectopic Dnmt3b expression

    Yingying Zhang et al.
    Ectopic expression of Dnmt3b leads to wide-spread CpG island hypermethylation that is largely defined by chromatin state and has some distinct features when compared to the cancer methylome.

    Concerted action of the MutLβ heterodimer and Mer3 helicase regulates the global extent of meiotic gene conversion

    Yann Duroc et al.
    Meiotic cells employ a specific pathway to limit the amount of gene conversion occuring at recombination sites.

    Concerted regulation of ISWI by an autoinhibitory domain and the H4 N-terminal tail

    Johanna Ludwigsen et al.
    The N-terminal domain of the chromatin remodeler ISWI contains previously uncharacterized conserved motifs that maintain structure, prevent ATP hydrolysis unless nucleosomes are bound, and confer H4-tail sensitivity without directly competing with the H4 tail.
