Doublecortin-like kinase 1 modulates its own kinase activity to tune its microtubule-binding affinity, providing molecular insights into a unique form of autoregulatory control over microtubule-binding activity.
Intravital imaging with HIV-1 viral-like particle in mouse model reveals a mechanism for HIV-1 uptake by subcapsular sinus macrophages that facilitates HIV-1 spreading tofollicular dendritic and B cells.
Microbial-sensing TLRs drive responses to the microbiota, while nucleic-acid sensing TLRs control responses to endogenous ligands, revealing novel regulation of B-1a responses through integrated BCR/TLR mediated activation.
Single-cell and single-molecule analyses of transient gene expression revealed hitherto unrecognized dynamics in heterochromatin function and defined novel roles for a heterochromatin establishment factor and an understudied sirtuin.
Population genomics in Arabidopsis thaliana uncovers an extensive repertoire of active transposable element families at the species level and reveals their importance as a source of rare alleles with large effects.
Selective transfer of mitochondria in the Balbiani body ensures high-quality oocyte mitochondria at extreme ploidy, explaining many enigmatic features of female germline architecture including germ cell loss.
