    Dynamic post-translational modification profiling of Mycobacterium tuberculosis-infected primary macrophages

    Jonathan M Budzik et al.
    Measurement of post-translational modifications in primary macrophages infected with Mtb revealed phosphorylation of TAX1BP1, an autophagy receptor that enables full maturation of the Mtb autophagosome.

    A widely distributed metalloenzyme class enables gut microbial metabolism of host- and diet-derived catechols

    Vayu Maini Rekdal et al.
    A previously unrecognized group of metalloenzymes enables human gut microbes to metabolize dietary molecules and neurotransmitters and likely mediates interactions and metabolism among environmental microorganisms.

    Imp/IGF2BP levels modulate individual neural stem cell growth and division through myc mRNA stability

    Tamsin J Samuels et al.
    Single molecule mRNA imaging uncovers post-transcriptional regulation of myc mRNA, via a cell-intrinsic mechanism allowing individualised control of neural stem cell proliferation during Drosophila brain development.

    Ser/Thr kinase Trc controls neurite outgrowth in Drosophila by modulating microtubule-microtubule sliding

    Rosalind Norkett et al.
    Microtubule-microtubule sliding and neurite outgrowth in Drosophila is controlled by a Ser/Thr kinase Tricornered via phosphorylation of a 'mitotic' motor protein Pavarotti.

    Opposite changes in APP processing and human Aβ levels in rats carrying either a protective or a pathogenic APP mutation

    Marc D Tambini et al.
    APP mutations that either cause or prevent dementia alter APP metabolism in a complex and opposite fashion, suggesting a link between multiple APP processing events, dementia and ageing-dependent cognitive decline.

    Notochord vacuoles absorb compressive bone growth during zebrafish spine formation

    Jennifer Bagwell et al.
    Live imaging and genetic analyses revealed that notochord vacuoles play a critical role in spine morphogenesis by absorbing vertebral bone growth, thus implicating notochord mechanics in congenital scoliosis.

    Distinct cytoskeletal proteins define zones of enhanced cell wall synthesis in Helicobacter pylori

    Jennifer A Taylor et al.
    The helical bacterium Helicobacter pylori patterns cell wall synthesis using two distinct cytoskeletal proteins, CcmA and MreB, to achieve its characteristic shape.

    Casein kinase 1 dynamics underlie substrate selectivity and the PER2 circadian phosphoswitch

    Jonathan M Philpott et al.
    A conformational switch in the Casein Kinase 1 activation loop controls substrate preference to regulate the abundance of the clock protein PERIOD2 and circadian timekeeping.
    1. Neuroscience

    C1 neurons are part of the circuitry that recruits active expiration in response to the activation of peripheral chemoreceptors

    Milene R Malheiros-Lima et al.
    An unbiased description reveals potential implications for understanding the developmental mechanisms that match respiratory supply and demand during hypoxia.
