    APOBEC3A deaminates transiently exposed single-strand DNA during LINE-1 retrotransposition

    Sandra R Richardson et al.
    Combining in vitro and in vivo assays demonstrates that the cytidine deaminase APOBEC3A can inhibit LINE-1 retrotransposition by deaminating transiently exposed single-strand DNA that arises during the process of LINE-1 integration.

    A chemical probe of CARM1 alters epigenetic plasticity against breast cancer cell invasion

    Xiao-Chuan Cai et al.
    A chemical probe was characterized for potency, selectivity, and ability to alter CARM1-dependent epigenetic plasticity against cancer cell invasion.

    Structural basis for the recognition of spliceosomal SmN/B/B’ proteins by the RBM5 OCRE domain in splicing regulation

    André Mourão et al.
    Interactions with Sm proteins can provide a way in which regulatory factors can modulate alternative splice site choices.

    Copy-number and gene dependency analysis reveals partial copy loss of wild-type SF3B1 as a novel cancer vulnerability

    Brenton R Paolella et al.
    Partial copy loss of spliceosome genes are common non-driver gene dependencies in cancer.

    Laminin signals initiate the reciprocal loop that informs breast-specific gene expression and homeostasis by activating NO, p53 and microRNAs

    Saori Furuta et al.
    Endogenous laminins are necessary to build a functional acinus via generating NO, activating p53, HOXD10 and other positive players, but tumor cells neither make laminin nor generate NO, unless they are reverted to an organized structure.

    Size uniformity of animal cells is actively maintained by a p38 MAPK-dependent regulation of G1-length

    Shixuan Liu et al.
    The p38 MAPK pathway functions downstream of a cell-size-sensing process to coordinate cell size/growth with G1 progression in animal cells.

    Oncogenic BRAF disrupts thyroid morphogenesis and function via twist expression

    Viviana Anelli et al.
    Transformation mediated by oncogenic BRAF requires transcriptional activation of TWIST at the earliest stage of neoplastic transformation.

    Tumor suppressive role of sestrin2 during colitis and colon carcinogenesis

    Seung-Hyun Ro et al.
    Sestrin2 loss could be a universal mechanism of human colon carcinogenesis that allows for barrier dysfunction, mTORC1 hyperactivation, unrestricted tumor growth and chemoresistance.

    Developmental alterations in centrosome integrity contribute to the post-mitotic state of mammalian cardiomyocytes

    David C Zebrowski et al.
    Mammal hearts are unable to replace lost cardiomyocytes, which may be due to the loss of centrosome integrity in these cells after birth.

    Irreversible fate commitment in the Arabidopsis stomatal lineage requires a FAMA and RETINOBLASTOMA-RELATED module

    Juliana L Matos et al.
    An adult stem-cell lineage terminally differentiates via recruitment of the RETINOBLASTOMA-RELATED protein by a lineage specific transcription factor.
