    AR phosphorylation and CHK2 kinase activity regulates IR-stabilized AR–CHK2 interaction and prostate cancer survival

    Huy Q Ta et al.
    CHK2 directly binds the AR to mediate transient suppression of AR activity and thus loss of CHK2 function in prostate cancer increases AR activity, DNA damage response and radiation resistance.

    Human DECR1 is an androgen-repressed survival factor that regulates PUFA oxidation to protect prostate tumor cells from ferroptosis

    Zeyad D Nassar et al.
    DECR1, a rate-limiting enzyme for polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) β-oxidation, is an androgen-repressed gene in prostate cancer cells that limits oxidative stress to promote cancer cell survival.

    Nemo-like kinase is a novel regulator of spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy

    Tiffany W Todd et al.
    Nemo-like kinase is a key protein promoting the pathogenesis of spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy.

    Androgen-regulated transcription of ESRP2 drives alternative splicing patterns in prostate cancer

    Jennifer Munkley et al.
    The male steroid hormone testosterone regulates splicing patterns by controlling the expression of a key splicing regulator protein.

    Pi-Pi contacts are an overlooked protein feature relevant to phase separation

    Robert McCoy Vernon et al.
    Statistics on the frequencies of pi interactions in folded protein structures enable successful prediction of intrinsically disordered protein phase separation, with clear implications for a physical understanding of cellular organization.

    SARS-CoV-2 S protein:ACE2 interaction reveals novel allosteric targets

    Palur V Raghuvamsi et al.
    SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binding to receptor angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 allosterically enhances furin proteolysis at distal S1/S2 cleavage sites.

    Embryonic transcription factor expression in mice predicts medial amygdala neuronal identity and sex-specific responses to innate behavioral cues

    Julieta E Lischinsky et al.
    Studying the development of the medial amygdala in the mouse reveals how the brain may potentially process sex differences in innate behaviors such as mating.

    Early dysfunction and progressive degeneration of the subthalamic nucleus in mouse models of Huntington's disease

    Jeremy F Atherton et al.
    In mouse models of Huntington's disease, the subthalamic nucleus, which suppresses movements, also exhibits impaired glutamate homeostasis, NMDA receptor-dependent mitochondrial oxidant stress, firing disruption, and 30% neuronal loss.

    Regulation of the glucocorticoid receptor via a BET-dependent enhancer drives antiandrogen resistance in prostate cancer

    Neel Shah et al.
    Epigenetic regulation of the glucocorticoid receptor in castration-resistant prostate cancer can be targeted via the use of BET bromodomain inhibitors.
