    Cross-talk between PRMT1-mediated methylation and ubiquitylation on RBM15 controls RNA splicing

    Li Zhang et al.
    Inhibiting PRMT1 enzymatic activity promotes megakaryocyte terminal differentiation via RBM15-mediated RNA metabolism, which is dysregulated in hematological malignancies.

    Splicing repression allows the gradual emergence of new Alu-exons in primate evolution

    Jan Attig et al.
    During evolutionary progression of Alu-exons, repressive U-tracts buffer sudden gains in 3' splice site strength and prevent inclusion of cryptic exons.

    Srsf10 and the minor spliceosome control tissue-specific and dynamic SR protein expression

    Stefan Meinke et al.
    Competition between minor and major splice sites in SRSF10 controls cell type-dependent expression of all SR-proteins and reveals a global impact of the minor spliceosome on major intron splicing.

    Splicing factors Sf3A2 and Prp31 have direct roles in mitotic chromosome segregation

    Claudia Pellacani et al.
    Extensive cytological and biochemical analyses show that the conserved Sf3A2 and Prp31 splicing factors bind microtubules and the Ndc80 complex, playing direct mitotic functions in both Drosophila and human mitosis.

    Viral miRNA adaptor differentially recruits miRNAs to target mRNAs through alternative base-pairing

    Carlos Gorbea et al.
    iRICC, a new method to identify RNA-RNA interactions in vivo, provides mechanistic insight into the function of a viral non-coding RNA.

    A composite double-/single-stranded RNA-binding region in protein Prp3 supports tri-snRNP stability and splicing

    Sunbin Liu et al.
    Structural and functional analyses show how the spliceosomal Prp3 protein concomitantly binds double- and single- stranded regions in U4/U6 di-snRNAs and serves to stabilize the U4/U6•U5 tri-snRNP for splicing.

    The genome of the crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, a model for animal development, regeneration, immunity and lignocellulose digestion

    Damian Kao et al.
    The first malacostracan genome sequence will establish the genetically tractable Parhyale hawaiensis as a model organism in this key animal group.

    Nanopore direct RNA sequencing maps the complexity of Arabidopsis mRNA processing and m6A modification

    Matthew T Parker et al.
    Sequencing mRNA directly with nanopores can reveal the authentic combinations of multiple mRNA processing events in full-length mRNA molecules in addition to identifying base modifications.

    Synergistic assembly of human pre-spliceosomes across introns and exons

    Joerg E Braun et al.
    Viewing the dynamic interactions of individual spliceosomal subcomplexes with single pre-messenger RNA molecules reveals how nearby flanking splice sites accelerate pre-spliceosome assembly and the splicing of multi-intron pre-mRNAs.

    The RNA interactome of human telomerase RNA reveals a coding-independent role for a histone mRNA in telomere homeostasis

    Roland Ivanyi-Nagy et al.
    A messenger RNA coding for the histone 1.2 protein negatively regulates telomere elongation by interacting with human telomerase RNA.
