    Spatial sequestration and detoxification of Huntingtin by the ribosome quality control complex

    Junsheng Yang et al.
    A genome-wide screen in yeast reveals that key proteins in ribosome quality control also regulate mutant Huntingtin aggregation and toxicity.

    Cytokine ranking via mutual information algorithm correlates cytokine profiles with presenting disease severity in patients infected with SARS-CoV-2

    Kelsey E Huntington et al.
    A mutual information algorithm points to macrophage activation syndrome as a specific pathogenic mechanism in COVID-19, correlated with disease severity, which could be used to monitor disease and therapeutics.

    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.

    Shape deformation analysis reveals the temporal dynamics of cell-type-specific homeostatic and pathogenic responses to mutant huntingtin

    Lucile Megret et al.
    Cell-type-specific molecular systems mapping reveals that striatal neuron degeneration in Huntington's disease is primarily driven by the loss of homeostatic responses.

    A striatal-enriched intronic GPCR modulates huntingtin levels and toxicity

    Yuwei Yao et al.
    A cell-surface receptor called Gpr52 is able to lower the levels of the disease-causing protein mutant huntingtin and suppress its toxicity when knocked-down, making this receptor a promising drug target in Huntington's disease.

    Metformin reverses early cortical network dysfunction and behavior changes in Huntington’s disease

    Isabelle Arnoux et al.
    In a premanifest mouse model of Huntington's disease at a stage very far from disease onset, significant network and behavior dysregulation was found, being rebalanced by treatment with metformin.

    Mutant huntingtin enhances activation of dendritic Kv4 K+ channels in striatal spiny projection neurons

    Luis Carrillo-Reid et al.
    In mouse models of Huntington's disease, striatal spiny projection neurons up-regulate dendritic potassium channels, which impairs their normal function, but a zinc finger gene therapy can reverse this deficit.

    Robust cullin-RING ligase function is established by a multiplicity of poly-ubiquitylation pathways

    Spencer Hill et al.
    Human cullin-RING ligases are buffered to a much greater extent than had been previously appreciated, and the roles of ubiquitin chain extension enzymes are far more nuanced at physiological concentrations.

    Suppressor of cytokine signaling (SOCS)5 ameliorates influenza infection via inhibition of EGFR signaling

    Lukasz Kedzierski et al.
    The intracellular SOCS5 protein has a unique and key role in restraining influenza A infection by regulating epidermal growth factor receptor signaling in airway epithelial cells.

    Single-cell transcriptome reveals the novel role of T-bet in suppressing the immature NK gene signature

    Chao Yang et al.
    T-bet suppresses the expression of immature NK cell-defining genes.
