    Regulatory roles of Escherichia coli 5' UTR and ORF-internal RNAs detected by 3' end mapping

    Philip P Adams et al.
    Multiple RNA-seq approaches globally mapped RNA 3´ ends resulting in the discovery of numerous and diverse RNA regulators.

    PLZF targets developmental enhancers for activation during osteogenic differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells

    Shuchi Agrawal Singh et al.
    A key transcription-factor for osteogenic differentiation, PLZF, acts as a transcriptional activator by binding to active developmental enhancers and facilitates mediator recruitment, but is not involved in enhancer looping.

    Structural basis of malodour precursor transport in the human axilla

    Gurdeep S Minhas et al.
    Discovery of the structural basis for recognition and uptake of a human precursor for body odour production reveals an important role for bacterial peptide transport and novel routes to prevent its production in humans.

    Comment on ‘YcgC represents a new protein deacetylase family in prokaryotes’

    Magdalena Kremer et al.
    We applied a combined synthetic biological, biochemical and mass-spectrometric approach to show that YcgC is not a member of a novel lysine deacetylase class in prokaryotes.

    Structural basis of ribosomal peptide macrocyclization in plants

    Joel Haywood et al.
    The first crystal structure of an active plant asparaginyl endopeptidase reveals a tetrahedral intermediate state in its active site, which may help to explain why these enzymes have been independently recruited to perform peptide macrocyclization.

    Mechanism of environmentally driven conformational changes that modulate H-NS DNA-bridging activity

    Ramon A van der Valk et al.
    The DNA-bridging efficiency of H-NS, a genome organising and transcription regulatory protein, is modulated by changes in environmental conditions of the cell, which drive a structural rearrangement of the protein.

    Model for a novel membrane envelope in a filamentous hyperthermophilic virus

    Peter Kasson et al.
    A novel membrane, formed by a monolayer of lipids in a U-shaped conformation, envelops a virus that can withstand extremes of temperature and acidity.

    Compact and highly active next-generation libraries for CRISPR-mediated gene repression and activation

    Max A Horlbeck et al.
    Integrated modeling of sgRNA positioning, chromatin accessibility, and sequence features enables accurate prediction of effective target sites for CRISPR-mediated transcriptional modulation and design of highly active libraries for genome-scale genetic screens.

    Bridged filaments of histone-like nucleoid structuring protein pause RNA polymerase and aid termination in bacteria

    Matthew V Kotlajich et al.
    Bridged H-NS filaments inhibit transcript elongation by bacterial RNA polymerase by enhancing backtracking and increasing Rho-dependent termination at a subset of pause sites that are normally poor Rho substrates.
