    A pentameric protein ring with novel architecture is required for herpesviral packaging

    Allison L Didychuk et al.
    The first structures of Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus ORF68 and Epstein–Barr virus BFLF1, conserved and essential proteins required in herpesviruses, reveal new insights into viral genome packaging.

    Structure and mechanism of a phage-encoded SAM lyase revises catalytic function of enzyme family

    Xiaohu Guo et al.
    The first structure of a bacteriophage-encoded S-adenosyl methionine degrading enzyme was solved and demonstrated to catalyze a unimolecular lyase reaction occurring at the domain interface of a trimeric structure.

    Structural basis for effector transmembrane domain recognition by type VI secretion system chaperones

    Shehryar Ahmad et al.
    A widespread family of chaperones functions to stabilize membrane protein effectors by mimicking transmembrane helical environments and promotes effector export by the bacterial type VI secretion system.

    Transparent soil microcosms for live-cell imaging and non-destructive stable isotope probing of soil microorganisms

    Kriti Sharma et al.
    Two optically transparent substrates enable the exploration of the ecophysiology and spatiotemporal organization and activities of bacteria and fungi within heterogeneous soil-like environments.

    Specificity in glycosylation of multiple flagellins by the modular and cell cycle regulated glycosyltransferase FlmG

    Silvia Ardissone et al.
    Glycosylation of flagellins with pseudaminic acid in the bacterial cytoplasm governed by an unknown type of modular glycosyltransferase harboring an N-terminal substrate binding domain and a C-terminal glycosyltransferase domain.

    Structure of the bacterial ribosome at 2 Å resolution

    Zoe L Watson et al.
    High-resolution maps and models of the bacterial ribosome provide new chemical insights into protein synthesis, and should enable the development of robust tools for cryo-EM structure modeling and refinement.

    Enhancement of homology-directed repair with chromatin donor templates in cells

    Grisel Cruz-Becerra, James T Kadonaga
    Precise genome editing by homology-directed repair occurs more efficiently with a chromatin donor template than with a naked DNA donor template.

    Bacterial cell cycle control by citrate synthase independent of enzymatic activity

    Matthieu Bergé et al.
    A key enzyme of central energy metabolism, citrate synthase, regulates bacterial cell cycle progression at a very specific stage (S-phase) and independently of its enzymatic activity.

    A gut bacterial amyloid promotes α-synuclein aggregation and motor impairment in mice

    Timothy R Sampson et al.
    Production of an amyloid protein by bacteria within the gut microbiome can influence the pathophysiology of a mouse model of synucleinopathy.

    Unstructured regions in IRE1α specify BiP-mediated destabilisation of the luminal domain dimer and repression of the UPR

    Niko Amin-Wetzel et al.
    Client protein-driven reversal of endoplasmic reticulum chaperone (BiP) mediated-repression is revealed as a principal component of the regulation of the unfolded protein response transducer IRE1 in cells.
