    A Dynamic molecular basis for malfunction in disease mutants of p97/VCP

    Anne K Schuetz, Lewis E Kay
    Point mutations in a ubiquitous human ATPase called p97/VCP deregulate inter-domain communication, resulting in impaired binding of an adaptor that recruits p97 to endosomal pathways and leading to a degenerative disease of bone, muscle and neurons.

    Host-induced bacterial cell wall decomposition mediates pattern-triggered immunity in Arabidopsis

    Xiaokun Liu et al.
    Arabidopsis lysozyme LYS1 generates soluble peptidoglycan fragments to mediate pattern-triggered immunity.

    Nuclear export of misfolded SOD1 mediated by a normally buried NES-like sequence reduces proteotoxicity in the nucleus

    Yongwang Zhong et al.
    Cellular and genetic approaches reveal that exposure of a normally buried nuclear export signal (NES)-like sequence mediates export of ALS-linked mutant and misfolded wild-type SOD1 to the cytoplasm by CRM1.

    VCP-dependent muscle degeneration is linked to defects in a dynamic tubular lysosomal network in vivo

    Alyssa E Johnson et al.
    The AAA-ATPase VCP sustains sarcoplasmic proteostasis, in part, by controlling autophagosome-lysosome fusion and the integrity of a dynamic tubular lysosomal network.

    Cdc48/p97 promotes degradation of aberrant nascent polypeptides bound to the ribosome

    Rati Verma et al.
    The enzyme that collaborates with ubiquitin ligases to promote the release of defective polypeptides from stalled ribosomes in a process named ribosome-associated degradations has been identified as the ATPase Cdc48.

    Valosin-containing protein (VCP/p97) inhibitors relieve Mitofusin-dependent mitochondrial defects due to VCP disease mutants

    Ting Zhang et al.
    A potential medication has been found for the brain and muscle degenerative diseases caused by mutant forms of Valosin-Containing Protein.

    The genomic landscape of meiotic crossovers and gene conversions in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Erik Wijnker et al.
    A comprehensive and genome-wide description of the genomic make-up and frequency of meiotic recombination in Arabidopsis thaliana reveals regional preferences, including nucleosome-free regions, and two associated recombination motifs.
