    Complementary shifts in photoreceptor spectral tuning unlock the full adaptive potential of ultraviolet vision in birds

    Matthew B Toomey et al.
    Birds that see ultraviolet light tune the sensitivity of their short-wavelength photoreceptors with colored filters to maximize the number of colors they can see.

    The AFF4 scaffold binds human P-TEFb adjacent to HIV Tat

    Ursula Schulze-Gahmen et al.
    Structure-function analysis of the super elongation complex formed when HIV replicates inside cells reveals that the HIV-1 Tat protein binds to a cleft between P-TEFb, an enzyme that is involved in normal transcription, and AFF4, a protein that is used to build the super elongation complex

    A novel pH-dependent membrane peptide that binds to EphA2 and inhibits cell migration

    Daiane S Alves et al.
    The transmembrane domain of the EphA2 receptor has been transformed into a novel amphitropic peptide that binds to the EphA2 receptor and inhibits cell migration.

    Somatostatin binds to the human amyloid β peptide and favors the formation of distinct oligomers

    Hansen Wang et al.
    The cyclic neuropeptide somatostatin binds to human Aβ1-42 through an interface that critically relies on a specific tryptophan, thereby blocking the propensity of Aβ to aggregate, a critical step in the pathobiology of Alzheimer's disease.

    La-related protein 1 (LARP1) binds the mRNA cap, blocking eIF4F assembly on TOP mRNAs

    Roni M Lahr et al.
    La-related protein 1 specifically and directly binds the 5' cap and first nucleotide of mRNAs encoding ribosomal proteins and translation factors, inhibiting the assembly of translation initiation factors on these messages and therefore their translation.

    The Ku subunit of telomerase binds Sir4 to recruit telomerase to lengthen telomeres in S. cerevisiae

    Evan P Hass, David C Zappulla
    In yeast, the secondary pathway for recruiting telomerase to chromosome ends requires a component of telomeric transcriptionally silent chromatin.

    The Drosophila F-box protein Fbxl7 binds to the protocadherin Fat and regulates Dachs localization and Hippo signaling

    Justin A Bosch et al.
    The F-box protein Fbxl7 is a direct effector of the protocadherin Fat and functions in downstream pathways that regulate tissue shape and size.

    GE23077 binds to the RNA polymerase ‘i’ and ‘i+1’ sites and prevents the binding of initiating nucleotides

    Yu Zhang et al.
    The cyclic-peptide antibiotic GE23077 inhibits bacterial RNA polymerase through a novel target that exhibits low susceptibility to target-based resistance and that enables synthesis of bipartite inhibitors that are exceptionally potent and refractory to target-based resistance.

    Wiz binds active promoters and CTCF-binding sites and is required for normal behaviour in the mouse

    Luke Isbel et al.
    Though generally considered a transcriptional repressor, Wiz may also function as a transcriptional activator in the mouse brain and is required for normal behaviour.

    The AAA ATPase Vps4 binds ESCRT-III substrates through a repeating array of dipeptide-binding pockets

    Han Han et al.
    A 3.2 Å resolution structure of Vps4 provides a detailed model for protein substrate binding and translocation by AAA ATPases.
