    Telomerase biogenesis requires a novel Mex67 function and a cytoplasmic association with the Sm7 complex

    Yulia Vasianovich et al.
    A new tool that allows specific subpopulations of telomerase RNAs in vivo forces a thorough revision of the telomerase maturation pathway and suggests a new function for Mex67.

    The deubiquitylase Ubp15 couples transcription to mRNA export

    Fanny Eyboulet et al.
    Ubp15 regulates the ubiquitylation of the export adaptor Mex67.

    Increased longevity due to sexual activity in mole-rats is associated with transcriptional changes in the HPA stress axis

    Arne Sahm et al.
    The fact that sexual activity/reproduction doubles the lifespan of certain rodent species is most likely linked to critical changes in the regulation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal stress axis.

    Synaptotagmin-7 places dense-core vesicles at the cell membrane to promote Munc13-2- and Ca2+-dependent priming

    Bassam Tawfik et al.
    Synaptotagmin-7 acts synergistically with synaptotagmin-1 by placing vesicles close to the plasma membrane within reach of the SNARE/Munc13-complex, supporting their priming and setting the stage for fast and slow fusion.

    MITF reprograms the extracellular matrix and focal adhesion in melanoma

    Ramile Dilshat et al.
    Analysis of knockout and knockdown melanoma cells and TCGA melanoma data shows that the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MITF) is a major repressor of extracellular matrix (ECM) and focal adhesion genes.

    MEIS-mediated suppression of human prostate cancer growth and metastasis through HOXB13-dependent regulation of proteoglycans

    Calvin VanOpstall et al.
    The HOXB13 binding partner MEIS1 suppresses prostate cancer proliferation, invasion, and metastasis by promoting expression of the anti-oncogenic extracellular proteoglycan Decorin.

    Neural crest-specific deletion of Rbfox2 in mice leads to craniofacial abnormalities including cleft palate

    Dasan Mary Cibi et al.
    The identification of the splicing code and all the required components of alternative splicing will be crucial for a comprehensive understanding of this process in the neural crest cell biology.

    Genetic predisposition to uterine leiomyoma is determined by loci for genitourinary development and genome stability

    Niko Välimäki et al.
    Genetic predisposition to uterine leiomyomas arises from variation at loci for genetic stability and genitourinary development, and in part explains the frequent occurrence of the condition in women with African origin.

    Non-invasive detection of urothelial cancer through the analysis of driver gene mutations and aneuploidy

    Simeon U Springer et al.
    The creation of a non-invasive assay for detecting urothelial cancer could have a profound impact on how we find and treat the disease.
