    Single nuclei RNA-seq of mouse placental labyrinth development

    Bryan Marsh, Robert Blelloch
    A time-course of single nuclei RNA-seq of the mouse placenta identifies trophoblast subtypes and the genes, signaling events, and transcriptional networks important for their differentiation, maintenance, and function.

    eIF4E S209 phosphorylation licenses myc- and stress-driven oncogenesis

    Hang Ruan et al.
    Genetic and transcriptomic analyses revealed that eIF4E S209 phosphorylation enables Myc and mutant KRAS cooperation in colon cancer through stress- and glutamine-dependent growth and addiction.

    Investigating the trade-off between folding and function in a multidomain Y-family DNA polymerase

    Xiakun Chu et al.
    The physical interaction network encoded in the multi-domain protein native structure handles the trade-off between the fast, stable folding and the efficient, reliable function.

    Sex-specific effects of cooperative breeding and colonial nesting on prosociality in corvids

    Lisa Horn et al.
    A systematic experimental comparison of prosocial behavior in eight corvid species reveals sex-specific effects of cooperative breeding and colonial nesting, thereby adding important new insights regarding the evolution of prosociality.

    Protein phase separation and its role in tumorigenesis

    Shan Jiang et al.
    The current understanding of phase separation is summarized and its emerging roles in cancer are discussed in detail.

    Gradual compaction of the nascent peptide during cotranslational folding on the ribosome

    Marija Liutkute et al.
    HemK NTD cotranslational folding starts within the ribosome exit tunnel upon N-terminal helix synthesis and proceeds sequentially through a series of intermediates becoming less dynamic as the nascent chain grows.

    Molecular mechanism for direct actin force-sensing by α-catenin

    Lin Mei et al.
    Biophysical and structural studies reveal how low piconewton forces across actin enhance binding by the critical cell-cell adhesion protein α-catenin versus its force insensitive homolog vinculin.

    Structural basis of αE-catenin–F-actin catch bond behavior

    Xiao-Ping Xu et al.
    A molecular mechanism for force-dependent binding of the cell adhesion proteins αE-catenin and vinculin to actin is derived from the structure of the αE-catenin actin-binding domain bound to F-actin.

    Beyond the RNA-dependent function of LncRNA genes

    Tamer Ali, Phillip Grote
    Recent examples demonstrate that already the transcriptional activity at lncRNA genes does have an important function on gene regulation, while the produced non-coding RNA might be dispensable.

    A novel DNA primase-helicase pair encoded by SCCmec elements

    Aleksandra Bebel et al.
    SCCmec genomic islands encode a novel primase-helicase pair in which priming ability is conferred upon an A-family DNA polymerase domain by a novel protein cofactor.
