    KDM2B links the Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) to recognition of CpG islands

    Anca M Farcas et al.
    A protein that can recognize regions of DNA with a high proportion of unmethylated CpG dinucleotides, and then recruit polycomb group proteins to these CpG islands, has been identified.

    Rapid localized spread and immunologic containment define Herpes simplex virus-2 reactivation in the human genital tract

    Joshua T Schiffer et al.
    A combination of detailed sampling and mathematical modeling suggests that the response of immune cells to reactivation of herpes simplex virus 2 is extremely rapid and effective within microscopic areas of genital skin.

    ER-associated mitochondrial division links the distribution of mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA in yeast

    Andrew Murley et al.
    Sites at which mitochondria contact the endoplasmic reticulum co-localize the replication of mitochondria and their DNA to help ensure that DNA is distributed appropriately between the newly formed organelles in cells.

    MicroRNA-146a acts as a guardian of the quality and longevity of hematopoietic stem cells in mice

    Jimmy L Zhao et al.
    Chronic and excessive inflammation can lead to exhaustion of the supply of hematopoietic stem cells and to myeloid malignancies in mice, mimicking important aspects of the myelodysplastic syndrome found in humans.

    TRPM5-mediated calcium uptake regulates mucin secretion from human colon goblet cells

    Sandra Mitrovic et al.
    Goblet cells secrete mucins—which are key components of mucus—in a process that is regulated by calcium ions, which enter the goblet cells via a mechanism involving a channel protein called TRPM5.

    miR-124 controls male reproductive success in Drosophila

    Ruifen Weng et al.
    A small RNA molecule called miR-124 controls pheromone production and sexual behaviour in Drosophila by regulating sex-specific gene expression in males.

    The genome sequence of the colonial chordate, Botryllus schlosseri

    Ayelet Voskoboynik et al.
    The Botryllus schlosseri genome yields insights into the evolution of hematopoiesis.

    Her2 activation mechanism reflects evolutionary preservation of asymmetric ectodomain dimers in the human EGFR family

    Anton Arkhipov et al.
    The structural basis for Her2's role as a dedicated heterodimerization partner for other EGFR family receptors is elucidated with long-timescale atomistic simulations.

    APP interacts with LRP4 and agrin to coordinate the development of the neuromuscular junction in mice

    Hong Y Choi et al.
    Proteins implicated in Alzheimer’s disease, including amyloid precursor protein and ApoE receptors, interact with each other and with a signalling molecule called agrin to influence the development of the neuromuscular junction.
