    The CDK-PLK1 axis targets the DNA damage checkpoint sensor protein RAD9 to promote cell proliferation and tolerance to genotoxic stress

    Takeshi Wakida et al.
    Minimizing anti-proliferation signaling from DNA damage detection machinery is the tactic for the cells to drive proliferation under genotoxic environment, and the function is exerted by Polo-Like-Kinase1 that is frequently over-expressed in cancer cells.

    Oviductal estrogen receptor α signaling prevents protease-mediated embryo death

    Wipawee Winuthayanon et al.
    Cyclic estrogen signaling in oviduct epithelial cells suppresses oviduct luminal protease activity to allow survival and development of preimplantation embryos

    The tardigrade damage suppressor protein binds to nucleosomes and protects DNA from hydroxyl radicals

    Carolina Chavez et al.
    Dsup, a unique protein found only in tardigrades, is a nucleosome-binding protein that protects DNA from damage by hydroxyl radicals, such as those generated by ionizing radiation or oxidants.

    Freezing suppression by oxytocin in central amygdala allows alternate defensive behaviours and mother-pup interactions

    Elizabeth Rickenbacher et al.
    Oxytocin in the amygdala suppresses freezing of mothers when exposed to a threat in the presence of their offspring, allowing for pup protection and transmission of information about danger from mothers to pups.

    IER5, a DNA damage response gene, is required for Notch-mediated induction of squamous cell differentiation

    Li Pan et al.
    Unbiased analyses highlight context-specific crosstalk between Notch, DNA damage response genes, and PP2A, and provide a roadmap for understanding how Notch induces squamous cell differentiation.

    Tumor suppressive role of sestrin2 during colitis and colon carcinogenesis

    Seung-Hyun Ro et al.
    Sestrin2 loss could be a universal mechanism of human colon carcinogenesis that allows for barrier dysfunction, mTORC1 hyperactivation, unrestricted tumor growth and chemoresistance.

    Loss of p53 suppresses replication-stress-induced DNA breakage in G1/S checkpoint deficient cells

    Bente Benedict et al.
    During tumorigenesis loss of p53 not only abrogates cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, but also suppresses the induction of replication-stress-induced DNA double-stranded breaks.

    Inactivation of the ATMIN/ATM pathway protects against glioblastoma formation

    Sophia M Blake et al.
    Deletion of the ATM cofactor ATMIN reduces PDGFRA expression and strongly suppresses tumorigenesis in a TP53-deficient mouse model of glioblastoma.

    The transcriptional regulator BZR1 mediates trade-off between plant innate immunity and growth

    Rosa Lozano-Durán et al.
    The transcriptional regulator BZR1 acts as a molecular integrator of environmental cues regulating the trade-off between growth and innate immunity.

    Non-canonical RNA-directed DNA methylation participates in maternal and environmental control of seed dormancy

    Mayumi Iwasaki et al.
    Seed-specific and cold-induced DNA methylation is deposited in the seed progeny to form a transient and transgenerational memory of past environmental conditions to optimize seed germination timing.
