    Cooperative cobinding of synthetic and natural ligands to the nuclear receptor PPARγ

    Jinsai Shang et al.
    Synthetic PPARγ ligands push and cobind with natural endogenous ligands, instead of compete and displace, which synergistically affects the structure and function of PPARγ.

    Structural organization of a major neuronal G protein regulator, the RGS7-Gβ5-R7BP complex

    Dipak N Patil et al.
    Atomic details on structural organization and conformational dynamics of the key regulator of neuronal signaling shed light on its allosteric regulation and role in regulating cellular pathways.

    Reactive oxygen species regulate activity-dependent neuronal plasticity in Drosophila

    Matthew CW Oswald et al.
    Reactive oxygen species, previously considered damaging agents linked to pathology, are required for normal neuronal plasticity, including adjustment of synaptic terminal size, maintenance of synaptic physiology and adaptive behavioural responses.

    Measuring cis-regulatory energetics in living cells using allelic manifolds

    Talitha L Forcier et al.
    A novel strategy is presented for quantitatively measuring protein-DNA and protein-protein interactions that regulate transcription in living cells.

    Preacinetobactin not acinetobactin is essential for iron uptake by the BauA transporter of the pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii

    Lucile Moynié et al.
    The pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii recognises preacinetobactin not acinetobactin, yet appears likely to translocate both compounds through a mixed complex.

    An unexpected INAD PDZ tandem-mediated plcβ binding in Drosophila photo receptors

    Fei Ye et al.
    Biochemical and structural studies uncover an unexpected mode of interaction, with unprecedented high affinity, between INAD scaffold and NORPA that is critical for Drosophila compound eye photo-transduction.

    Lipidation-independent vacuolar functions of Atg8 rely on its noncanonical interaction with a vacuole membrane protein

    Xiao-Man Liu et al.
    The core autophagy protein Atg8 plays non-autophagy roles through binding to an integral membrane protein Hfl1, which harbors an unusual Atg8-interacting motif.

    Global transcriptional analysis identifies a novel role for SOX4 in tumor-induced angiogenesis

    Stephin J Vervoort et al.
    Global transcriptome analysis reveals that the transcription factor SOX4 can promote breast tumor development via tumor angiogenesis by promoting paracrine signalling through endothelin-1.

    Reversal of ApoE4-induced recycling block as a novel prevention approach for Alzheimer’s disease

    Xunde Xian et al.
    Lowering endosomal pH through inhibition of sodium-hydrogen exchanger 6 corrects the ApoE4-induced Reelin resistance and restores neuronal glutamate receptor trafficking.
