    Rac1-mediated membrane raft localization of PI3K/p110β is required for its activation by GPCRs or PTEN loss

    Onur Cizmecioglu et al.
    A unique two-step mechanism of plasma membrane recruitment and activation governs G-protein-coupled receptor mediated PI3K signaling.

    Cavin-3 dictates the balance between ERK and Akt signaling

    Victor J Hernandez et al.
    Cavin-3 is a tumor suppressor protein that inhibits Akt signaling, suppresses Warburg metabolism, promotes apoptosis, and protects against cachexia.

    The Caenorhabditis elegans microtubule minus-end binding homolog PTRN-1 stabilizes synapses and neurites

    Jana Dorfman Marcette et al.
    The minus-ends of microtubules have been implicated as part of a damage sensor to initiate remodeling of nerve cells.

    Integrated β-catenin, BMP, PTEN, and Notch signalling patterns the nephron

    Nils O Lindström et al.
    The patterning of the nephron is driven by a gradient in the activity of β-catenin and further defined by a network of BMP, PTEN and NOTCH signalling.

    Simultaneous quantification of mRNA and protein in single cells reveals post-transcriptional effects of genetic variation

    Christian Brion et al.
    A CRISPR-based dual reporter assay enables genetic mapping of DNA variants that specifically affect mRNA or protein levels in trans.

    Reverse evolution leads to genotypic incompatibility despite functional and active site convergence

    Miriam Kaltenbach et al.
    Enzyme evolution is reversible on a structural and functional (phenotypic) level, but through a different mutational pathway that leads to genotypic incompatibility with the ancestor.

    Dual function of the PI3K-Akt-mTORC1 axis in myelination of the peripheral nervous system

    Gianluca Figlia et al.
    High PI3K-Akt-mTORC1 activity inhibits Schwann cell differentiation, while after onset of myelination, residual PI3K-Akt-mTORC1 activity promotes myelin growth.

    Carbon recovery dynamics following disturbance by selective logging in Amazonian forests

    Camille Piponiot et al.
    Carbon recovery in Amazonian forests disturbed by selective logging is higher in the Guiana Shield and in the west, and is mainly shaped by the carbon gain of trees that survived the disturbance.

    T-ALL leukemia stem cell 'stemness' is epigenetically controlled by the master regulator SPI1

    Haichuan Zhu et al.
    The identification of key determinants of LSC “stemness” and LSC differentiation that is reversible through an epigenetic mechanism may have considerable implications in understanding leukemia and designing effective therapies.

    PTEN negatively regulates the cell lineage progression from NG2+ glial progenitor to oligodendrocyte via mTOR-independent signaling

    Estibaliz González-Fernández et al.
    OPC-specific genetic inhibition of Akt upstream and downstream molecules in the mouse, and simultaneous OPC fate analysis reveal that PTEN-AKT-GSK3b forms a persistent negative signaling pathway for OL development, in parallel with the AKT-mTORC1 pathway.
