    Inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 polymerase by nucleotide analogs from a single-molecule perspective

    Mona Seifert et al.
    High-throughput and ultra-stable magnetic tweezers reveal that Remdesivir induces a long-lived backtrack pause upon incorporation by the coronavirus polymerase, and SARS-CoV-2 is able to evade interferon-induced antiviral ddhCTP.

    TMEM120A contains a specific coenzyme A-binding site and might not mediate poking- or stretch-induced channel activities in cells

    Yao Rong et al.
    Electrophysiological and structural characterizations reveal that a previously proposed ion channel responsible for sensing mechanical pain is insensitive to poking or stretching stimuli for conducting ions and may serve as a coenzyme A-binding protein instead.

    Binding affinity landscapes constrain the evolution of broadly neutralizing anti-influenza antibodies

    Angela M Phillips et al.
    CR9114, one of the most broadly neutralizing anti-influenza antibodies characterized to date, acquires affinity to divergent HA subtypes sequentially, due to higher order interactions between the nested sets of mutations required for binding each distinct subtype.

    Cost-precision trade-off relation determines the optimal morphogen gradient for accurate biological pattern formation

    Yonghyun Song, Changbong Hyeon
    The morphogen profiles that pattern the fruit fly attain desired levels of spatial precision in a cost-effective manner.

    Concerted conformational dynamics and water movements in the ghrelin G protein-coupled receptor

    Maxime Louet et al.
    A combination of state-of-the-art biochemical, biophysical, and computational methods revealed that water molecules play a central role in signal propagation through G protein-coupled receptors.

    Analysis of the mechanosensor channel functionality of TACAN

    Yiming Niu et al.
    Electrophysiological and structural data do not support a mechanosensitive channel function for TACAN.

    CLAMP and Zelda function together to promote Drosophila zygotic genome activation

    Jingyue Duan et al.
    Maternal CLAMP functions as a novel pioneer transcription factor to open chromatin and plays a targeted yet essential role in Drosophila zygotic genome activation.

    Processing of the ribosomal ubiquitin-like fusion protein FUBI-eS30/FAU is required for 40S maturation and depends on USP36

    Jasmin van den Heuvel et al.
    Endoproteolytic cleavage of the ribosomal precursor protein FUBI-eS30 is required for efficient maturation of small ribosomal subunits in the cytoplasm of human cells and involves the nucleolar deubiquitinase USP36.

    Maternally inherited piRNAs direct transient heterochromatin formation at active transposons during early Drosophila embryogenesis

    Martin H Fabry et al.
    Maternally deposited Piwi-piRNA complexes co-transcriptionally repress transposable elements that transiently become active in somatic cells of the developing Drosophila embryo.

    Matrix-trapped viruses can prevent invasion of bacterial biofilms by colonizing cells

    Matthew C Bond et al.
    Microfluidic culture and high-resolution 3-D microscopy establish that bacteriophages trapped in the outer matrix layers of a bacterial biofilm remain active and can prevent colonization of the biofilm by newly arriving bacteria.
