    Late-life restoration of mitochondrial function reverses cardiac dysfunction in old mice

    Ying Ann Chiao et al.
    Mitochondrial-targeted SS-31 peptide ameliorates mitochondrial dysfunction and rescues pre-existing cardiac dysfunction in old mice, supporting the translational potential of mitochondrial protective interventions to treat age-related diseases.

    MYBL2 is a sub-haploinsufficient tumor suppressor gene in myeloid malignancy

    Stefan Heinrichs et al.
    Reduced expression of MYBL2 contributes to malignancies of the blood by permitting uncontrolled expansion of blood cell progenitors, implying a tumor suppressor function for this gene.

    Improved lipidomic profile mediates the effects of adherence to healthy lifestyles on coronary heart disease

    Jiahui Si et al.
    Lifestyle interventions and statins may target different components of the lipid profile, suggesting that they are not redundant strategies but could be combined for better benefits.

    The DWORF micropeptide enhances contractility and prevents heart failure in a mouse model of dilated cardiomyopathy

    Catherine A Makarewich et al.
    Cardiac-specific overexpression of a recently discovered micropeptide, DWORF, enhances calcium cycling and contractility in the heart and rescues the heart failure phenotype of a genetic mouse model of dilated cardiomyopathy.

    Lipid hijacking: A unifying theme in vector-borne diseases

    Anya J O'Neal et al.
    A conceptual and unifying framework with a critical appraisal of lipid hijacking by microbes cycling between an arthropod vector and a mammalian host is explored.

    The flow responsive transcription factor Klf2 is required for myocardial wall integrity by modulating Fgf signaling

    Seyed Javad Rasouli et al.
    Endocardial Klf2 regulates cardiomyocyte adhesion and myocardial wall integrity by modulating FGF signaling in zebrafish.

    Loss of the melanocortin-4 receptor in mice causes dilated cardiomyopathy

    Michael J Litt et al.
    The melanocortin-4 receptor knockout mouse exhibits a cardiomyopathy syndrome, which raises concerns about cardiovascular function in patients with the similar loss of function mutations, and perhaps even in the 1 in 1500 patients with heterozygous loss of the gene.

    Endothelial EphB4 maintains vascular integrity and transport function in adult heart

    Guillermo Luxán et al.
    EphB4 maintains critical functional properties of the adult cardiac vasculature, namely mechanical resistance and fatty acid transport capability, and thereby prevents dilated cardiomyopathy-like defects.

    Thrombospondin expression in myofibers stabilizes muscle membranes

    Davy Vanhoutte et al.
    Thrombospondin proteins regulate vesicular trafficking of integrins and other membrane attachment complex proteins to the plasma membrane of skeletal muscle, which provides greater stability and resistance to muscular dystrophy.
