    A stress assembly that confers cell viability by preserving ERES components during amino-acid starvation

    Margarita Zacharogianni et al.
    Amino-acid starvation leads to the formation of a reversible stress assembly, the Sec body, which is a pro-survival reservoir for components of the ER exit sites.

    Cell-based HTS identifies a chemical chaperone for preventing ER protein aggregation and proteotoxicity

    Keisuke Kitakaze et al.
    Cell-based high-throughput screening identifies IBT21 as a chemical chaperone, that inhibits ER protein aggregation and prevents the cell death caused by a proteotoxin, the aggregation-prone prion protein.

    Glycolysis upregulation is neuroprotective as a compensatory mechanism in ALS

    Ernesto Manzo et al.
    Degenerating motor neurons compensate for energetic deficits by upregulating glycolysis in flies and humans, with increased glucose availability improving locomotor function and lifespan in flies.

    The C. elegans neural editome reveals an ADAR target mRNA required for proper chemotaxis

    Sarah N Deffit et al.
    Identification of tissue-specific RNA editing using a robust, publicly-available platform (SAILOR) reveals noncoding A-to-I editing events required for proper gene expression and neurological function, significantly advancing the understanding of how ADARs function in neural cells.

    Multiplex image-based autophagy RNAi screening identifies SMCR8 as ULK1 kinase activity and gene expression regulator

    Jennifer Jung et al.
    An image-based multiplex autophagosome RNAi screen targeting all Rab GTPases as well as their GAPs and GEFs identifies the Rab GEF SMCR8 as multifaceted autophagy modulator, which regulates kinase activity and gene expression of ULK1.

    Ubiquitin turnover and endocytic trafficking in yeast are regulated by Ser57 phosphorylation of ubiquitin

    Sora Lee et al.
    Ser57 phosphorylation regulates ubiquitin homeostasis by inhibiting deubiquitylase-mediated recycling and promoting vacuolar degradation.
