An unprecedented large-scale screen in mice for morphogenetic regulators of tissue development provides major new insights into the roles of Rho GTPases in diverse array of skin developmental processes.
An image-based multiplex autophagosome RNAi screen targeting all Rab GTPases as well as their GAPs and GEFs identifies the Rab GEF SMCR8 as multifaceted autophagy modulator, which regulates kinase activity and gene expression of ULK1.
A screen targeting RNA-associated proteins reveals that PSI regulates timeless alternative splicing and thus controls the period of Drosophila circadian behavior and its phase under temperature cycles.
A large-scale RNA interference screen uncovers a new transcriptional regulatory program involving the histone H3 demethylase KDM3A, which mediates detachment-induced apoptosis (anoikis) in breast epithelial cells.
A comprehensive analysis of long noncoding RNAs in the hematopoietic system reveals their dynamic regulation and a loss-of-function screen identifies some required for leukemia progression and involved in normal myeloid differentiation.
