    Drosophila neprilysins control insulin signaling and food intake via cleavage of regulatory peptides

    Benjamin Hallier et al.
    The catalytic activity of a Drosophila neprilysin is critical to proper insulin expression and food intake by regulating homeostasis of distinct signaling peptides.

    Weight loss, insulin resistance, and study design confound results in a meta-analysis of animal models of fatty liver

    Harriet Hunter et al.
    Animal studies of fatty liver disease over-estimate the benefit of drugs due to publication bias and are confounded by off-target weight loss, illustrating the challenge of successful translational across species.

    Structural and functional characterization of G protein–coupled receptors with deep mutational scanning

    Eric M Jones et al.
    Linking deep mutational scanning with engineered transcriptional reporters in human cell lines establishes a generalizable method for exploring pharmacogenomics, structure, and function across broad classes of drug receptors.

    Nedd4 E3 ligase and beta-arrestins regulate ubiquitination, trafficking, and stability of the mGlu7 receptor

    Sanghyeon Lee et al.
    β-arrestins recruit Nedd4 ubiquitin E3 ligase to mGlu7 receptor and facilitate ubiquitination, endocytosis, ERK signaling, and stability of mGlu7 at presynaptic terminals.

    SARS-CoV-2 strategically mimics proteolytic activation of human ENaC

    Praveen Anand et al.
    SARS-CoV-2 has evolved to cleverly mimic the FURIN-cleavage site in human ENaC-α, unlike any prior coronavirus strain, shedding new light on the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in COVID-19 patients.

    Lymphangiogenic therapy prevents cardiac dysfunction by ameliorating inflammation and hypertension

    LouJin Song et al.
    Lymphangiogenic therapy VEGFCc156s improved angiotensin-II-induced impairments in heart function via novel mechanisms, which include transcriptional responses to alleviate inflammation and cardiac fibrosis, and systemic responses to ameliorate hypertension.

    The transcriptomic and epigenetic map of vascular quiescence in the continuous lung endothelium

    Katharina Schlereth et al.
    The acquisition of vascular quiescence during transition to adulthood is driven by distinct transcriptional and epigenetic programs of pro- and anti-angiogenic genes, with the most prominent effect on the suppression of TGFß family signaling.
