    Electron transport chain biogenesis activated by a JNK-insulin-Myc relay primes mitochondrial inheritance in Drosophila

    Zong-Heng Wang et al.
    An insulin-Myc feed-forward loop triggered by transient JNK boosts transcription of genes essential for mitochondrial respiration and biogenesis during early oogenesis to support massive mtDNA replication and inheritance in Drosophila.

    An alternative splicing program promotes adipose tissue thermogenesis

    Santiago Vernia et al.
    NOVA pre-mRNA spacing factors suppress adipose tissue energy expenditure.

    Endothelial cells express NKG2D ligands and desensitize antitumor NK responses

    Thornton W Thompson et al.
    Antitumor (natural killer) NK cell responses are negatively regulated by interactions between NK cells and endogenous NKG2D ligands constitutively expressed on lymph node endothelial cells and super-induced on tumor-associated endothelium.

    Metabolic but not transcriptional regulation by PKM2 is important for natural killer cell responses

    Jessica F Walls et al.
    Pharmacological activation of the metabolic activities of PKM2 in murine NK cells disrupts cellular redox balance and inhibits optimal NK cell effector functions.

    BRAF inhibitors suppress apoptosis through off-target inhibition of JNK signaling

    Harina Vin et al.
    The cancer drug vemurafenib has potent off-target effects on JNK signaling that contribute to the development of squamous cell carcinomas in humans and in mice.

    Tissue-resident natural killer (NK) cells are cell lineages distinct from thymic and conventional splenic NK cells

    Dorothy K Sojka et al.
    Natural killer cells that were commonly thought to circulate around the body can actually reside in distinct tissues, such as in the liver, skin or uterus, and do not re-circulate.

    JNK-dependent cell cycle stalling in G2 promotes survival and senescence-like phenotypes in tissue stress

    Andrea Cosolo et al.
    Tissue damage induces a reversible cell cycle arrest in G2, which promotes survival and mitogenic signals to facilitate tissue regeneration but drives senescence-like phenotypes under chronic stress conditions.

    NK cells inhibit Plasmodium falciparum growth in red blood cells via antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity

    Gunjan Arora et al.
    Red blood cells infected by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum are destroyed by human natural killer cells in the presence of antibodies from people who have acquired clinical immunity to malaria.

    Excitatory transmission onto AgRP neurons is regulated by cJun NH2-terminal kinase 3 in response to metabolic stress

    Santiago Vernia et al.
    Metabolic stress-induced activation of the JNK3 protein regulates excitatory transmission onto AgRP neurons to regulate food consumption.

    Ngn1 inhibits astrogliogenesis through induction of miR-9 during neuronal fate specification

    Jing Zhao et al.
    During neurogenesis, Neurogenin 1 activates the microRNA miR-9, which directly targets the Jak-Stat pathway to inhibit astrogliogenesis.
