    The LRRK2 G2019S mutation alters astrocyte-to-neuron communication via extracellular vesicles and induces neuron atrophy in a human iPSC-derived model of Parkinson’s disease

    Aurelie de Rus Jacquet et al.
    Extracellular vesicles are proposed as novel, non-cell-autonomous mediators of neuronal atrophy in Parkinson's disease.

    Translational control of polyamine metabolism by CNBP is required for Drosophila locomotor function

    Sonia Coni et al.
    A decrease of the type 2 myotonic dystrophy gene product CNBP causes an impairment of polyamine metabolism and locomotor dysfunction that can be reverted with polyamine supplementation.

    HIF1α is required for NK cell metabolic adaptation during virus infection

    Francisco Victorino et al.
    During pathogen infection, natural killer cells require hypoxia-inducible factor-1α for optimal metabolism to prevent apoptosis, thereby reducing viral load and protecting against morbidity.

    An epigenetic switch regulates the ontogeny of AXL-positive/EGFR-TKi-resistant cells by modulating miR-335 expression

    Polona Safaric Tepes et al.
    Erlotinib-resistant AXL overexpressing cells are present in therapy-naive tumors, and expression of AXL in these cells is regulated through a stochastic mechanism centered on the epigenetic regulation of miR-335.

    Mechanistic theory predicts the effects of temperature and humidity on inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 and other enveloped viruses

    Dylan H Morris et al.
    Viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, retain infectivity longer at low temperatures and extreme relative humidities because these conditions slow down the chemical reactions that inactivate those viruses.

    A phase transition enhances the catalytic activity of SARM1, an NAD+ glycohydrolase involved in neurodegeneration

    Heather S Loring et al.
    The catalytic activity of SARM1, a key promoter of neuronal degeneration, is activated by >2000-fold by a phase transition.

    Castration delays epigenetic aging and feminizes DNA methylation at androgen-regulated loci

    Victoria J Sugrue et al.
    Epigenetic clocks are an accurate measure of biological aging and 'tick' slower in male sheep that are castrated.

    Multiple pathways of toxicity induced by C9orf72 dipeptide repeat aggregates and G4C2 RNA in a cellular model

    Frédéric Frottin et al.
    Protein aggregates resulting from mutations in C9orf72 impair different aspects of cellular quality control in the cytosol and the nucleus, but mRNA-mediated effects contribute more strongly to toxicity.

    Downregulation of glial genes involved in synaptic function mitigates Huntington's disease pathogenesis

    Tarik Seref Onur et al.
    Cross-species transcriptomic analysis and high-throughput behavioral assays in a Drosophila model of Huntington's disease show that downregulation of glial genes involved in synaptic function compensates for disease-related excitotoxicity.

    Propensity for somatic expansion increases over the course of life in Huntington disease

    Radhia Kacher et al.
    Somatic instability of the CAG repeat increases progressively with age and disease progression in Huntington disease mutation carriers, starting with low levels in fetal brain tissues.
