    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.

    Negative regulation of ABA signaling by WRKY33 is critical for Arabidopsis immunity towards Botrytis cinerea 2100

    Shouan Liu et al.
    A genome-wide view of the gene regulatory network governed by WRKY33 has identified key targets that negatively regulate ABA biosynthesis to provide immunity against infection by a necrotrophic fungus.

    A global change in RNA polymerase II pausing during the Drosophila midblastula transition

    Kai Chen et al.
    The first zygotic genes are transcribed without RNA polymerase II pausing from a TATA-enriched promoter.

    Dynamic repression by BCL6 controls the genome-wide liver response to fasting and steatosis

    Meredith A Sommars et al.
    B cell lymphoma 6 (BCL6) represses fasting gene expression by opposing peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARa) activity at enhancers, and its ablation protects against steatosis by enhancing fatty acid catabolism.

    Human cardiac fibroblasts adaptive responses to controlled combined mechanical strain and oxygen changes in vitro

    Giovanni Stefano Ugolini et al.
    Human cardiac fibroblasts regulate their cellular responses according to the combination of multiple environmental stimuli namely oxygen changes and mechanical signals.

    Usf1, a suppressor of the circadian Clock mutant, reveals the nature of the DNA-binding of the CLOCK:BMAL1 complex in mice

    Kazuhiro Shimomura et al.
    A gene that codes for a transcription factor that is involved in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism also has a role in the regulation of circadian rhythms.

    Atrophin controls developmental signaling pathways via interactions with Trithorax-like

    Kelvin Yeung et al.
    ChIP-seq and phenotypic analyses reveal Atrophin from Drosophila directly regulates Notch and Dpp signaling components, and engrailed gene expression, via interactions with GAGA Factor.

    KRAB-zinc finger protein gene expansion in response to active retrotransposons in the murine lineage

    Gernot Wolf et al.
    Unbiased ChIP-seq screens and genetic knockouts of large Kruppel associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) clusters reveal that evolutionarily young KRAB-ZFPs play a redundant role in retrotransposon restriction in mice.

    A simple method for generating high-resolution maps of genome-wide protein binding

    Peter J Skene, Steven Henikoff
    Building on previous work (Skene et al., 2014), we show that a new ChIP-seq protocol provides superior resolution and ease of use at low sequence depth of coverage for generating genome-wide maps of protein binding.

    Integration of human pancreatic islet genomic data refines regulatory mechanisms at Type 2 Diabetes susceptibility loci

    Matthias Thurner et al.
    Human pancreatic islet high-resolution chromatin state maps generated from DNA methylation, open chromatin and ChIP-seq mark data facilitate the characterisation of regulatory mechanisms at type 2 diabetes genome-wide association study loci.
