    Chemical genetics and proteome-wide site mapping reveal cysteine MARylation by PARP-7 on immune-relevant protein targets

    Kelsie M Rodriguez et al.
    A combined chemical genetics, proximity labeling, and ADP-ribose site mapping approach shows that PARP-7 mono-ADP-ribosylates immune-relevant proteins on cysteine amino acids.

    Supervised mutational signatures for obesity and other tissue-specific etiological factors in cancer

    Bahman Afsari et al.
    A supervised methodology for mutational signatures outperforms the current standard unsupervised approach revealing new tissue-dependent mutational signatures among which some for obesity.

    Peripheral natural killer cells in chronic hepatitis B patients display multiple molecular features of T cell exhaustion

    Marie Marotel et al.
    Similar to T cell exhaustion, natural killer cell dysfunction in chronic hepatitis B patients results from deregulated calcium pathway.

    Diverse viral proteases activate the NLRP1 inflammasome

    Brian V Tsu et al.
    Proteases from diverse viruses, the first described pathogen-encoded activators of human NLRP1, cleave NLRP1 at a sequence that mimics the viral polyprotein, resulting in inflammasome activation and pro-inflammatory cytokine release.

    Immunocompetent mouse model for Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus

    David W Hawman et al.
    A mouse-adapted strain of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus that recapitulates human disease in wild-type mice significantly improves our ability to study Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus pathogenesis.

    Evolutionary conflicts and adverse effects of antiviral factors

    Daniel Sauter, Frank Kirchhoff
    Innate antiviral factors do not always perfectly distinguish between self and foreign, and potential adverse effects of antiviral defense mechanisms for the host have been discussed.

    Neuronal hyperexcitability is a DLK-dependent trigger of herpes simplex virus reactivation that can be induced by IL-1

    Sean R Cuddy et al.
    Herpes simplex virus reactivates from a latent infection when neurons become hyperexcitable in response to an inflammatory cytokine known to be released during fever and stress.

    HIV-1 Vpr antagonizes innate immune activation by targeting karyopherin-mediated NF-κB/IRF3 nuclear transport

    Hataf Khan et al.
    HIV-1 Vpr antagonises innate immune sensing of viral and non-viral stimuli by preventing activated IRF3 and NF-κB nuclear transport.

    Autophagy in T cells from aged donors is maintained by spermidine and correlates with function and vaccine responses

    Ghada Alsaleh et al.
    Declining TFEB and autophagy levels with age are key to poor vaccination efficacy in the elderly.

    Rationally derived inhibitors of hepatitis C virus (HCV) p7 channel activity reveal prospect for bimodal antiviral therapy

    Joseph Shaw et al.
    Exploiting virus-encoded ion channels as drug targets drove a multi-faceted approach to deriving potent small molecules targeting HCV p7, simultaneously providing new insights into its fundamental biology.
