    The GARP complex is required for cellular sphingolipid homeostasis

    Florian Fröhlich et al.
    The retrograde vesicular trafficking GARP complex, which is mutated in a neurodegenerative disease, is important for sphingolipid homeostasis in yeast and mammalian cells.

    Normal mitochondrial function in Saccharomyces cerevisiae has become dependent on inefficient splicing

    Marina Rudan et al.
    Removal of mitochondrial introns (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) from their host genes leads to detrimental increase in their transcript levels.

    Srs2 promotes synthesis-dependent strand annealing by disrupting DNA polymerase δ-extending D-loops

    Jie Liu et al.
    The Srs2 helicase functions in Synthesis-Dependent Strand Annealing to avoid crossover formation during homologous recombination by disrupting D-loops that are extended by DNA polymerase delta in an ATP-dependent and direction-specific manner.

    MELK expression correlates with tumor mitotic activity but is not required for cancer growth

    Christopher J Giuliano et al.
    Cancer cells can grow in vitro and in vivo in the absence of maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase (MELK).

    A nuclear-based quality control pathway for non-imported mitochondrial proteins

    Viplendra PS Shakya et al.
    During times of mitochondrial impairment, non-imported mitochondrial precursor proteins are targeted to the nucleus for proteasome-dependent degradation.

    The step-wise pathway of septin hetero-octamer assembly in budding yeast

    Andrew Weems, Michael McMurray
    In budding yeast cells, slow monomeric septin GTPase activity and the cytosolic GTP:GDP ratio dictate the relative incorporation of alternative subunits during septin hetero-oligomer assembly, which proceeds by discrete, ordered steps dependent on allostery between interaction interfaces.

    SnRK1-triggered switch of bZIP63 dimerization mediates the low-energy response in plants

    Andrea Mair et al.
    The transcription factor bZIP63 is a key regulator of the starvation response in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and is directly targeted by the kinase SnRK1.

    Amphiphysin I cleavage by asparagine endopeptidase leads to tau hyperphosphorylation and synaptic dysfunction

    Xingyu Zhang et al.
    Amphiphysin I is identified as a new substrate of AEP, and the resultant fragment induces synaptic dysfunction and promotes tau hyperphosphorylation via activating CDK5 kinase.

    Systematic identification of mutations and copy number alterations associated with cancer patient prognosis

    Joan C Smith, Jason M Sheltzer
    Gene copy number provides more prognostic information than gene mutation status in cancer.

    IGF2 mRNA binding protein-2 is a tumor promoter that drives cancer proliferation through its client mRNAs IGF2 and HMGA1

    Ning Dai et al.
    The IGF2 mRNA binding protein-2/IMP2, overexpressed in many common cancers, drives cancer cell proliferation by increasing the abundance of IGF2 and the oncogene HMGA1, which controls a network of effectors that enhance IGF2 action.
