    Novel transgenic pigs with enhanced growth and reduced environmental impact

    Xianwei Zhang et al.
    Transgenic expression of glucanase, xylanase and phytase in pigs enhances growth performance and reduces nitrogen/phosphorus emission, and offers a very valuable biological strategy for sustainable resource utilization and environmental protection in the pork industry.

    Regulation of signaling directionality revealed by 3D snapshots of a kinase:regulator complex in action

    Felipe Trajtenberg et al.
    The molecular mechanism of switching between phosphotransferase- and phosphatase-competent states in histidine-kinases has been uncovered, through direct crystallographic observation of bona fide complexes between a histidine-kinase and its response regulator from Bacillus subtilise.

    The glucuronyltransferase B4GAT1 is required for initiation of LARGE-mediated α-dystroglycan functional glycosylation

    Tobias Willer et al.
    Post-phosphoryl modification of α-dystroglycan requires the glucuronyltransferase B4GAT1; this enzyme synthesizes the acceptor glycan that serves as a primer for the glycosyltransferase LARGE to synthesize the laminin-binding glycan.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to survival in nature

    Severin Sasso et al.
    Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga C. reinhardtii has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.
  1. Point of View: Making the most of peer review

    IRF4 haploinsufficiency in a family with Whipple’s disease

    Antoine Guérin et al.
    Autosomal dominant IRF4 deficiency is the first genetic etiology of Whipple's disease, a very rare chronic condition following a rather common infection by Tropheryma whipplei.
