    DNA polymerase V activity is autoregulated by a novel intrinsic DNA-dependent ATPase

    Aysen L Erdem et al.
    DNA synthesis by DNA polymerase V is regulated by an intrinsic DNA-dependent ATPase activity which has not been observed for any other polymerase.

    Structural and biochemical analyses of the DEAD-box ATPase Sub2 in association with THO or Yra1

    Yi Ren et al.
    Biochemical and structural analyses of a universal mRNP remodeling pathway suggest an ATPase-powered targeted deposition of export factors onto mRNP.

    CED-3 caspase acts with miRNAs to regulate non-apoptotic gene expression dynamics for robust development in C. elegans

    Benjamin P Weaver et al.
    A broadly used gene expression regulatory mechanism inactivates targets by CED-3-caspase-mediated proteolysis and works in parallel to miRNAs for diverse non-apoptotic developmental functions.

    Clathrin coat controls synaptic vesicle acidification by blocking vacuolar ATPase activity

    Zohreh Farsi et al.
    Parallel measurements of pH gradient and membrane potential at the single vesicle level have revealed that the synaptic vesicle acidification is initiated by removal of its clathrin coat, which blocks vesicular ATPase activity.

    Tumor suppression in basal keratinocytes via dual non-cell-autonomous functions of a Na,K-ATPase beta subunit

    Julia Hatzold et al.
    A Na,K-ATPase beta subunit can suppress basal cell carcinogenesis either via its osmoregulatory function to avoid hypotonic stress, or by promoting epithelial polarity and adhesiveness of basal keratinocytes from the overlying outer layer.

    Tumor-promoting function of apoptotic caspases by an amplification loop involving ROS, macrophages and JNK in Drosophila

    Ernesto Pérez et al.
    The oncogenic RasV12 keeps cells mutant for the tumor suppressor scribble in an undead-like condition, which is required for an amplification loop that promotes tumorigenesis.

    Structure of Vps4 with circular peptides and implications for translocation of two polypeptide chains by AAA+ ATPases

    Han Han et al.
    Structural and biochemical studies indicate that AAA+ ATPase employ a general mechanism to translocate a variety of substrates, including extended polypeptides, hairpins, crosslinked chains, and chains conjugated to other molecules.

    A re-inducible gap gene cascade patterns the anterior–posterior axis of insects in a threshold-free fashion

    Alena Boos et al.
    The body axis of insects is divided into different fates using a self-regulatory and threshold-free mechanism.

    Caspase-8 contributes to angiogenesis and chemotherapy resistance in glioblastoma

    Giulia Fianco et al.
    Retention of Caspase-8 confers a selective advantage to glioblastoma and represents a novel therapeutic target.

    ATPase activity of the DEAD-box protein Dhh1 controls processing body formation

    Christopher Frederick Mugler et al.
    The ATPase Dhh1 controls processing body formation and disassembly in yeast cells, and processing body dynamics can be recapitulated in vitro with recombinant Dhh1, ATP and RNA.
