    Melanoma: Accelerating cancer without mutations

    Douglas E Brash
    Mice get melanoma faster when they have common, inherited variants in a few genes that control cell-wide changes but also respond to the environment.

    The mlpt/Ubr3/Svb module comprises an ancient developmental switch for embryonic patterning

    Suparna Ray et al.
    mille-pattes micropeptides have conserved function in insect embryonic patterning together with transcription factor Shaven-baby and ubiquitin ligase Ubr3, except in flies wherein restoring broad embryonic Svb expression restores patterning potency.

    Automated cryo-EM structure refinement using correlation-driven molecular dynamics

    Maxim Igaev et al.
    Correlation-driven molecular dynamics provides a fully automated and human-bias-free framework for quantitative interpretation of modern cryo-electron microscopy data.

    Circular synthesized CRISPR/Cas gRNAs for functional interrogations in the coding and noncoding genome

    Martin Wegner et al.
    Cloning-free 3Cs technology is developed for the generation of sequence-bias-free covalently closed circular synthesized (3Cs) CRISPR/Cas gRNA libraries that can interrogate the coding and noncoding human genome.

    Anillin regulates epithelial cell mechanics by structuring the medial-apical actomyosin network

    Torey R Arnold et al.
    In epithelial cells, anillin organizes the medial-apical actomyosin cortex into a contractile load-bearing structure and increases tissue-level stiffness.

    Extensive transmission of microbes along the gastrointestinal tract

    Thomas SB Schmidt et al.
    Microbial populations are continuous along the gastrointestinal tract, with increased transmission in colorectal cancer and rheumatoid arthritis patients.

    Plasmodium Niemann-Pick type C1-related protein is a druggable target required for parasite membrane homeostasis

    Eva S Istvan et al.
    The malaria parasite Niemann-Pick Type C1-related protein is an important new antimalarial target.

    Cellular entry and uncoating of naked and quasi-enveloped human hepatoviruses

    Efraín E Rivera-Serrano et al.
    Quasi-enveloped hepatitis A virions undergo clathrin-mediated endocytosis, followed by ALIX-dependent trafficking to lysosomes where the quasi-envelope is degraded, triggering uncoating of the RNA genome in association with lysosomal membrane rupture.

    Architectural principles for Hfq/Crc-mediated regulation of gene expression

    Xue Yuan Pei et al.
    Structural insights show how RNA chaperones cooperate to recognise defined target transcripts and suppress gene expression.

    The complete structure of the human TFIIH core complex

    Basil J Greber et al.
    The structure of human transcription factor IIH, a critical DNA repair and transcription initiation factor, has been determined by cryo-electron microscopy.
