    lncRNA requirements for mouse acute myeloid leukemia and normal differentiation

    M Joaquina Delás et al.
    A comprehensive analysis of long noncoding RNAs in the hematopoietic system reveals their dynamic regulation and a loss-of-function screen identifies some required for leukemia progression and involved in normal myeloid differentiation.

    Targeted degradation of BRD9 reverses oncogenic gene expression in synovial sarcoma

    Gerard L Brien et al.
    BRD9 provides the first actionable therapeutic target in synovial sarcoma tumours that is both biochemically and functionally linked to the SS18-SSX fusion protein which drives disease development.

    Perturbation biology nominates upstream–downstream drug combinations in RAF inhibitor resistant melanoma cells

    Anil Korkut et al.
    Data-driven systems biology models of signaling predict cellular response to untested perturbations and can nominate drug combinations to overcome drug resistance in cancer cells.

    The complex of TRIP-Br1 and XIAP ubiquitinates and degrades multiple adenylyl cyclase isoforms

    Wenbao Hu et al.
    XIAP/TRIP-Br1-mediated degradation of multiple adenylyl cyclase isoforms is a previously unrecognised general mechanism for controlling adenylyl cyclase expression and the homeostasis of cAMP signalling.

    A histone H3K9M mutation traps histone methyltransferase Clr4 to prevent heterochromatin spreading

    Chun-Min Shan et al.
    A lysine-to-methionine mutation in histone H3 dominantly blocks histone H3K9 methylation by trapping its methyltransferase.

    HP1 proteins compact DNA into mechanically and positionally stable phase separated domains

    Madeline M Keenen et al.
    Heterochromatin proteins compartmentalize DNA into compact structures resistant to mechanical disruption but susceptible to competitive dissolution.

    Downregulation of ribosome biogenesis during early forebrain development

    Kevin F Chau et al.
    Unbiased transcriptome analyses reveal that neural progenitor cells downregulate protein biosynthetic machinery during early forebrain development, and this fundamental process matches proteomic changes in the adjacent cerebrospinal fluid and is regulated in part by MYC.

    LARP7 suppresses P-TEFb activity to inhibit breast cancer progression and metastasis

    Xiaodan Ji et al.
    Transcription elongation by the elongation factor P-TEFb promotes the epithelial–mesenchymal transition and metastasis of breast cancer cells, implicating inhibition of this factor as a potential treatment for the late stages of this cancer.
