    Growth-factor-mediated coupling between lineage size and cell fate choice underlies robustness of mammalian development

    Néstor Saiz et al.
    A mechanistic basis is provided for the regulative ability of the mammalian embryo offering a long-sought explanation for coordinating cell behaviors at the population level ensuring robustness in developmental outcome.

    Sox17 and β-catenin co-occupy Wnt-responsive enhancers to govern the endoderm gene regulatory network

    Shreyasi Mukherjee et al.
    Genomic analysis of Xenopus gastrula reveal that the transcription factor Sox17 interacts with the Wnt signaling effector ß-catenin on enhancers to regulate the transcriptional program underlying endoderm germ layer formation.

    A missense in HSF2BP causing primary ovarian insufficiency affects meiotic recombination by its novel interactor C19ORF57/BRME1

    Natalia Felipe-Medina et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analysis reveal a variant in HSF2BP causing POI and C19ORF57/BRME1 as an interactor and stabilizer of HSF2BP by forming a complex with BRCA2, RAD51, RPA and PALB2.

    Coverage-dependent bias creates the appearance of binary splicing in single cells

    Carlos F Buen Abad Najar et al.
    Sequencing and counting RNAs from single cells can create a misleading picture of alternative splicing if too many mRNAs are lost in the process.

    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.

    Molecular basis for N-terminal alpha-synuclein acetylation by human NatB

    Sunbin Deng et al.
    The cryo-EM structure of the human N-terminal acetyltransferase NatB bound to a cognate N-terminal alpha-synuclein peptide reveals the molecular determinants of NatB-specific protein acetylation.

    Efficient coding of natural scene statistics predicts discrimination thresholds for grayscale textures

    Tiberiu Tesileanu et al.
    An optimization principle allows natural-image data to predict human sensitivity to synthetic, un-natural textures with multiple gray levels.

    Cortical RORβ is required for layer 4 transcriptional identity and barrel integrity

    Erin A Clark et al.
    RORβ is a key layer 4 transcription factor orchestrating a critical juncture in barrel development where terminal differentiation and activity inputs are integrated to drive cellular organization in the cortex.

    Mutational resilience of antiviral restriction favors primate TRIM5α in host-virus evolutionary arms races

    Jeannette L Tenthorey et al.
    Mutations in the TRIM5α retrovirus-binding interface frequently improve but rarely disrupt retroviral restriction.

    The cryo-EM structure of the human uromodulin filament core reveals a unique assembly mechanism

    Jessica J Stanisich et al.
    Cryo-EM reveals that an unexpected domain separation in the zona pellucida module of uromodulin is required for its assembly to filamentous homopolymers that promote pathogen clearance in urinary tract infections.
