    β-catenin and γ-catenin are dispensable for T lymphocytes and AML leukemic stem cells

    Xin Zhao et al.
    The generation and characterization of true β-catenin null mutant mice conclusively demonstrate that β-catenin is dispensable for T lymphocytes and leukemia stem cells, providing clarifications on a long-standing controversy.

    Senotherapeutic drugs for human intervertebral disc degeneration and low back pain

    Hosni Cherif et al.
    Targeting senescent cells in human intervertebral discs, using senotherapeutics, provides a potential therapeutic strategy to prevent or reduce disc degeneration and pain.

    NuRD subunit CHD4 regulates super-enhancer accessibility in rhabdomyosarcoma and represents a general tumor dependency

    Joana G Marques et al.
    In fusion-positive rhabdomyosarcoma, CHD4 positively regulates super-enhancer-mediated gene expression by allowing a chromatin architecture at these cis-regulatory regions, which is permissive to the binding of the transcription factor PAX3-FOXO1.

    A non-mosaic transchromosomic mouse model of Down syndrome carrying the long arm of human chromosome 21

    Yasuhiro Kazuki et al.
    TcMAC21 is an appropriate “next gen” mouse model for DS research, and provides a proof of concept of using artificial chromosomes to generate non-mosaic humanized animal models of chromosome disorders.

    Skd3 (human ClpB) is a potent mitochondrial protein disaggregase that is inactivated by 3-methylglutaconic aciduria-linked mutations

    Ryan R Cupo, James Shorter
    Skd3 (human ClpB) is a potent ATP-dependent mitochondrial protein disaggregase that is activated by the rhomboid protease, PARL, and inactivated by MGCA7-linked mutations.

    Unsupervised machine learning reveals risk stratifying glioblastoma tumor cells

    Nalin Leelatian et al.
    A new automated and unsupervised algorithm, Risk Assessment Population IDentification, identifies risk-stratifying cells in single cell datasets with robust statistical and biological validation.

    Identification of a novel toxicophore in anti-cancer chemotherapeutics that targets mitochondrial respiratory complex I

    Zoe A Stephenson et al.
    A novel toxicophore, a 1H-1,2,3-triazole, has been identified in a wide-number of therapeutically-relevant compounds, including two anti-cancer chemotherapeutics, which inhibits mitochondria function and is mechanistically linked to adverse cardiac-cell events.

    KIT ligand protects against both light-induced and genetic photoreceptor degeneration

    Huirong Li et al.
    A combination of in vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrate a cell-autonomous role of the KIT ligand/KIT signaling pathway in protecting retinal photoreceptor cells from environmentally or genetically caused degeneration.

    The hazards of smoking and the benefits of cessation: a critical summation of the epidemiological evidence in high-income countries

    Prabhat Jha
    Cumulatively, from 1950 to 2015, smoking-related disease has been the biggest cause of premature death in high-income countries, with elevated risks of smoking continuing well into the 21st century.
