    A Myt1 family transcription factor defines neuronal fate by repressing non-neuronal genes

    Joo Lee et al.
    First comprehensive genetic analysis of a Myt1 family protein reveals that neurogenesis requires direct repression of non-neuronal identities by the Myt1 family protein through MuvB co-repressor complex.

    MukB ATPases are regulated independently by the N- and C-terminal domains of MukF kleisin

    Katarzyna Zawadzka et al.
    In Escherichia coli structural maintenance of chromosomes (SMC) complex, MukBEF, a dimeric MukF kleisin binds and activates MukB SMC ATPases through two independent interfaces provided by distinct MukF N- and C-terminal domains.

    ESCRTs function directly on the lysosome membrane to downregulate ubiquitinated lysosomal membrane proteins

    Lu Zhu et al.
    The lysosome membrane is a new functional location for the ESCRTs in yeast.

    The golden mimicry complex uses a wide spectrum of defence to deter a community of predators

    Stano Pekár et al.
    A mimetic complex composed of at least 140 species of ants, wasps, spiders, true bugs and treehoppers, all with conspicuous golden bodies, has been discovered.

    Inhibitory peptidergic modulation of C. elegans serotonin neurons is gated by T-type calcium channels

    Kara E Zang et al.
    Genetic analysis of how neuropeptides control C. elegans reproductive behavior shows how T-type calcium channels engage and disengage target neurons from these critical regulators of neural circuits and behavior.

    Electrostatic lateral interactions drive ESCRT-III heteropolymer assembly

    Sudeep Banjade et al.
    ESCRT-III heteropolymers utilize non-specific lateral electrostatic interactions to recognize one another, which may enable the polymers to slide along one another and adapt to different curvatures.

    Translesion polymerase kappa-dependent DNA synthesis underlies replication fork recovery

    Peter Tonzi et al.
    Translesion polymerase kappa promotes replication fork restart to maintain genome stability during conditions of nucleotide deprivation.

    The retromer complex safeguards against neural progenitor-derived tumorigenesis by regulating Notch receptor trafficking

    Bo Li et al.
    The retromer complex serves as a bomb squad to retrieve and disarm the potentially harmful pool of Notch receptors in a timely manner and thereby safeguards against brain tumor formation.

    Ubiquitin turnover and endocytic trafficking in yeast are regulated by Ser57 phosphorylation of ubiquitin

    Sora Lee et al.
    Ser57 phosphorylation regulates ubiquitin homeostasis by inhibiting deubiquitylase-mediated recycling and promoting vacuolar degradation.
