    ZCWPW1 is recruited to recombination hotspots by PRDM9 and is essential for meiotic double strand break repair

    Daniel Wells et al.
    ZCWPW1 has co-evolved with PRDM9, in particular the PRDM9-SET domain, and although not involved in PRDM9's role in positioning recombination events, it is required for PRDM9's role in pairing chromosomes.

    Dual histone methyl reader ZCWPW1 facilitates repair of meiotic double strand breaks in male mice

    Mohamed Mahgoub et al.
    The meiotic recombination landscape in vertebrates was re-engineered via the co-evolution of a dual histone H3K4/H3K36 methylation 'writer' PRDM9 and its 'reader' ZCWPW1 that facilitates efficient double strand break repair.

    The histone modification reader ZCWPW1 links histone methylation to PRDM9-induced double-strand break repair

    Tao Huang et al.
    ZCWPW1 is a histone modification reader that localizes to DMC1-labelled double-strand break hotspots in a largely PRDM9-dependent manner, where it facilitates completion of synapsis by mediating DSB repair process.

    Sexual Reproduction: Reading the epigenetic code for exchanging DNA

    Mathilde Biot, Bernard de Massy
    Three independent studies show that a protein called ZCWPW1 is able to recognize the histone modifications that initiate the recombination of genetic information during meiosis.

    Systematic identification of cis-regulatory variants that cause gene expression differences in a yeast cross

    Kaushik Renganaath et al.
    Yeast promoters can harbor multiple natural DNA variants that influence gene expression, interact genetically, evolve under negative selection, alter transcription factor motifs, and remain challenging to predict.

    The Mars1 kinase confers photoprotection through signaling in the chloroplast unfolded protein response

    Karina Perlaza et al.
    A genetic screen in a unicellular photosynthetic organism uncovers the first essential signaling component in the chloroplast unfolded protein response that relays information from the chloroplast to the nuclear compartment.

    PRDM9 activity depends on HELLS and promotes local 5-hydroxymethylcytosine enrichment

    Yukiko Imai et al.
    Biochemical and genetic approaches uncover a chromatin remodeler for PRDM9 binding and the parallel local epigenetic modification of cytosines in mouse spermatocytes.

    A systematic approach to identify recycling endocytic cargo depending on the GARP complex

    Sebastian Eising et al.
    The GARP complex is important for the endocytic recycling of amino phospholipid flippases and cell wall proteins, and thus membrane and lipid organization in yeast.
