    Phosphoinositide-mediated oligomerization of a defensin induces cell lysis

    Ivan KH Poon et al.
    A novel innate defense mechanism of cell lysis involves the coordinated oligomerization of a defensin by interaction with the membrane lipid, phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate.

    Kin cell lysis is a danger signal that activates antibacterial pathways of Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Michele LeRoux et al.
    The death of bacterial kin cells releases a danger signal that activates a posttranscriptional response in surviving cells, resulting in the rapid elaboration of interbacterial competition factors.

    Impaired respiration elicits SrrAB-dependent programmed cell lysis and biofilm formation in Staphylococcus aureus

    Ameya A Mashruwala et al.
    The absence of oxygen prompts Staphylococcus aureus cells to rupture resulting in increased formation of biofilms, which are the etiological agents of recurrent infections.

    Biofilms: Take my breath away

    Vinai C Thomas, Paul D Fey
    A lack of oxygen activates a pathway that causes the bacterial cell wall to break down, which, in turn, aids bacterial biofilm development.

    Cooperative interactions enable singular olfactory receptor expression in mouse olfactory neurons

    Kevin Monahan et al.
    Biochemical and genetic experiments show that Ebf and Lhx2 cooperate to specify olfactory receptor enhancers, which cooperate to drive olfactory receptor expression.

    NFATc2 enhances tumor-initiating phenotypes through the NFATc2/SOX2/ALDH axis in lung adenocarcinoma

    Zhi-Jie Xiao et al.
    NFATc2 maintains the drug-induced TIC phenotypes through trans-activating SOX2/ALDH1A1 expression and scavenging stress from ROS.

    Inhibition of Transient Receptor Potential Melastatin 3 ion channels by G-protein βγ subunits

    Doreen Badheka et al.
    Electrophysiological experiments, Ca2+ imaging, and behavioral studies in mice identify the TRPM3 ion channel as a novel target of G-protein βγ subunits.

    Tissue-specific regulation of BMP signaling by Drosophila N-glycanase 1

    Antonio Galeone et al.
    N-glycanase 1 is required for a BMP autoregulatory loop in the visceral mesoderm and for intestinal development in Drosophila.
