    The human origin recognition complex is essential for pre-RC assembly, mitosis, and maintenance of nuclear structure

    Hsiang-Chen Chou et al.
    The initiation of human genome replication requires the six-subunit origin recognition complex (ORC) and CDC6, with ORC playing additional roles during mitosis and in organization of the cell nucleus.
    1. Cancer Biology

    Use of signals of positive and negative selection to distinguish cancer genes and passenger genes

    László Bányai et al.
    In contrast with earlier conclusions, negative selection has a major role in cancer evolution.

    Epigenetic drift of H3K27me3 in aging links glycolysis to healthy longevity in Drosophila

    Zaijun Ma et al.
    Epigenetic drift of H3K27me3 is one of the molecular mechanisms that contribute to aging, and stimulation of glycolysis promotes metabolic health and longevity.

    Modifications at K31 on the lateral surface of histone H4 contribute to genome structure and expression in apicomplexan parasites

    Fabien Sindikubwabo et al.
    A versatile acetylation-methylation switch at lysine 31 on the lateral surface of histone H4 contributes to chromatin structure in apicomplexan parasites.

    Characterization of a Toxoplasma effector uncovers an alternative GSK3/β-catenin-regulatory pathway of inflammation

    Huan He et al.
    A genetic screen in combination with biochemical approaches reveal hijacking of the host β-catenin destruction complex by the parasite T. gondii to reprogram immune gene expression.
    1. Neuroscience

    Inter- and intra-animal variation in the integrative properties of stellate cells in the medial entorhinal cortex

    Hugh Pastoll et al.
    Setpoints that determine the integrative properties of neurons in the medial entorhinal cortex are established at a population level and differ between animals.
    1. Neuroscience

    Instructed knowledge shapes feedback-driven aversive learning in striatum and orbitofrontal cortex, but not the amygdala

    Lauren Y Atlas et al.
    While the striatum and orbitofrontal cortex learn about threats through verbal warnings, the amygdala learns only from direct experience, suggesting that the amygdala forms part of a specialized threat detection system.
  1. Life story: Alexis Barr
