    Permeant fluorescent probes visualize the activation of SARM1 and uncover an anti-neurodegenerative drug candidate

    Wan Hua Li et al.
    The first-in-class cell-permeant fluorescent probe provides direct and visual evidence of SARM1 activation in axonal degeneration and identified the first covalent, allosteric inhibitor of SARM1 acting on the NAD-binding pocket in the ARM domain.

    Single-amino acid variants reveal evolutionary processes that shape the biogeography of a global SAR11 subclade

    Tom O Delmont et al.
    An in-depth metagenomic analysis of possibly the most abundant and widespread microbial lineage in the surface ocean teases apart evolutionary processes that maintain its genomic heterogeneity and biogeography.

    Structural basis for SARM1 inhibition and activation under energetic stress

    Michael Sporny et al.
    Cryo-EM shows that the NADase activity of SARM1 is allosterically inhibited by physiological concentrations of NAD+ that stabilizes an auto-inhibited conformation of SARM1, explaining how NAD+ depletion may inflict neurodegeneration.

    A phase transition enhances the catalytic activity of SARM1, an NAD+ glycohydrolase involved in neurodegeneration

    Heather S Loring et al.
    The catalytic activity of SARM1, a key promoter of neuronal degeneration, is activated by >2000-fold by a phase transition.

    NMNAT1 inhibits axon degeneration via blockade of SARM1-mediated NAD+ depletion

    Yo Sasaki et al.
    Axonal metabolic flux analysis demonstrates that expression of NMNAT1 blocks axonal degeneration in cultured mouse neurons not by altering NAD+ synthesis, but rather by inhibiting injury-induced, SARM1-dependent NAD+ consumption.

    SARM1 depletion rescues NMNAT1-dependent photoreceptor cell death and retinal degeneration

    Yo Sasaki et al.
    A mouse model of retinal degeneration reveals a common mechanism for axonal degeneration and photoreceptor cell death and identifies SARM1 as a therapeutic candidate for retinopathies.

    The plant-specific transcription factors CBP60g and SARD1 are targeted by a Verticillium secretory protein VdSCP41 to modulate immunity

    Jun Qin et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analyses reveal a virulence mechanism employed by V. dahliae that involves inhibition of the transcription factor activity of CBP60g and SARD1.

    The structure of the COPII transport-vesicle coat assembled on membranes

    Giulia Zanetti et al.
    A structure of the complete, membrane bound, COPII coat solved by sub-tomogram averaging reveals the arrangement of all protein subunits on the membrane and suggests a mechanism for coating heterogeneously-shaped carriers.
