    KDM2B links the Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) to recognition of CpG islands

    Anca M Farcas et al.
    A protein that can recognize regions of DNA with a high proportion of unmethylated CpG dinucleotides, and then recruit polycomb group proteins to these CpG islands, has been identified.

    DNA-PK is a DNA sensor for IRF-3-dependent innate immunity

    Brian J Ferguson et al.
    Experiments in mice have shown than an enzyme that repairs broken DNA inside the nucleus also has a central role in the innate immune system because it is able to detect foreign DNA outside the nucleus.

    Epigenetic conservation at gene regulatory elements revealed by non-methylated DNA profiling in seven vertebrates

    Hannah K Long et al.
    Islands of non-methylated DNA are shown to perform a similar epigenetic role in many different vertebrate species.

    Mutual inhibition among postmitotic neurons regulates robustness of brain wiring in Drosophila

    Marion Langen et al.
    The Notch signaling pathway has a central role in the development of the nervous system, and also in the establishment of networks of connections in the adult brain

    Overcoming mutation-based resistance to antiandrogens with rational drug design

    Minna D Balbas et al.
    Mutagenesis studies identified an androgen receptor mutation that converts enzalutamide-a drug recently approved for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer-into an androgen receptor agonist, and modeling studies informed the design of novel drugs that are effective against the mutant receptor.

    The ER–Golgi intermediate compartment is a key membrane source for the LC3 lipidation step of autophagosome biogenesis

    Liang Ge et al.
    A cell-free biochemical assay for protein lipidation identifies the ER–Golgi intermediate compartment as a key early station in the formation of an autophagosome.

    Phenotypic landscape inference reveals multiple evolutionary paths to C4 photosynthesis

    Ben P Williams et al.
    Computational modelling indicates that C4 photosynthesis in distantly related plant species arose through a number of independent evolutionary paths.

    Engineered proteins detect spontaneous DNA breakage in human and bacterial cells

    Chandan Shee et al.
    Fluorescent derivatives of a bacteriophage protein that binds double-stranded ends can trap and label genome-destabilizing double-strand DNA breaks in bacterial and human cells, and illuminate the origins of spontaneous DNA breakage in both.

    Hdac6 regulates Tip60-p400 function in stem cells

    Poshen B Chen et al.
    A normally cytoplasmic deacetylase, Hdac6, localizes to the nucleus in embryonic stem cells, where it regulates the essential Tip60-p400 chromatin remodeling complex.
