    A β-catenin-driven switch in TCF/LEF transcription factor binding to DNA target sites promotes commitment of mammalian nephron progenitor cells

    Qiuyu Guo et al.
    β-Catenin-mediated expansion of nephron progenitors is independent of direct β-catenin/chromatin engagement, while progenitor induction proceeds with a β-catenin-driven switch of repressive TCFL1/TCFL2 to activating TCF7/LEF1 factors on transcriptionally poised enhancers.

    Mesoscale phase separation of chromatin in the nucleus

    Gaurav Bajpai et al.
    Computer simulations show transitions between novel types of chromatin organization (peripheral, central, conventional) depending on chromatin interactions with itself, the lamin and nuclear hydration, measured in recent experiments.

    Exploring chromosomal structural heterogeneity across multiple cell lines

    Ryan R Cheng et al.
    Chromosomal structural ensembles are fluid yet are cell-type-specific, despite apparent disorder, appropriate collective variables uncover evidence of structural transitions associated with gene activity and cell differentiation.

    Notch and TLR signaling coordinate monocyte cell fate and inflammation

    Jaba Gamrekelashvili et al.
    Notch signaling alters TLR-induced inflammation by skewing monocyte cell fate toward patrolling monocyte differentiation at the expense of macrophage cell fate.

    MetaHiC phage-bacteria infection network reveals active cycling phages of the healthy human gut

    Martial Marbouty et al.
    Physical contacts of bacteria and phage genomes allow in situ exploration of underdocumented phage families in the gut.

    Evidence for additive and synergistic action of mammalian enhancers during cell fate determination

    Jinmi Choi et al.
    Temporal changes in genome-wide enhancer transcription activity during a transdifferentiation event reveal additive and synergistic enhancer cooperation.

    Exploration of CTCF post-translation modifications uncovers Serine-224 phosphorylation by PLK1 at pericentric regions during the G2/M transition

    Brian C Del Rosario et al.
    The chromosome architectural protein, CTCF, is phosphorylated at Ser224 in a cell-cycle-dependent manner and abrogation of phosphorylation leads to a cell growth defect.

    Plasmodium-specific atypical memory B cells are short-lived activated B cells

    Damián Pérez-Mazliah et al.
    Plasmodium-specific atypical memory B cells generated to naturally (mosquito) transmitted rodent malaria infection are short-lived activated B cells, and do not prevent resolution of infection or generation of long-lived memory.

    IFNγ induces epigenetic programming of human T-bethi B cells and promotes TLR7/8 and IL-21 induced differentiation

    Esther Zumaquero et al.
    IFNγ increases the responsiveness of human B cells to IL-2, TLR7/8 and IL-21 signals and therefore enhances antibody production in inflammatory settings associated with autoimmune or chronic disease.

    Parvovirus minute virus of mice interacts with sites of cellular DNA damage to establish and amplify its lytic infection

    Kinjal Majumder et al.
    Development of a generally adaptable conformational capture assay for use in-trans identifies the specific direct interaction sites between the parvovirus minute virus of mice and the cellular genome during infection as sites of cellular DNA damage.
