Quantitative live-cell microscopy and molecular perturbations in Drosophila and human cells reveal a crosstalk between molecular 'rulers' (Aurora B) and 'clocks' (Cdk1) that coordinates mitotic exit in space and time.
Polarizing susceptibilities to recurrent bladder infection are shaped by a duality in TNFɑ-mediated inflammation dynamics upon challenge infection that is dictated by the outcome of the initial infection.
The Sip-Triggered Optogenetic Behavior Enclosure (STROBE) produces robust behaviors via activation of peripheral or central neurons in the fly, and mimics key features of feeding driven by chemical taste ligands.
The ubiquitin ligase c-Cbl preferentially targets unique-region phosphorylated LynA for rapid degradation, regulating its expression and differentially tuning signaling responsiveness in macrophages and mast cells.
Acetylation of the circadian transcription factor BMAL1 by the acetyltransferase TIP60 is crucial for recruitment of the pause release factors to clock gene promoters and productive elongation of these genes.
