    Many si/shRNAs can kill cancer cells by targeting multiple survival genes through an off-target mechanism

    William Putzbach et al.
    Loading of CD95 and CD95L-derived sequences into the RNA-induced silencing complex elicits a distinct form of RNAi-mediated cell death of cancer cells that results from the targeting of multiple survival genes.

    Active RNAP pre-initiation sites are highly mutated by cytidine deaminases in yeast, with AID targeting small RNA genes

    Benjamin JM Taylor et al.
    Transcribed promoters are highly susceptible to mutation by cytidine deaminases, implicating stable exposure of single stranded DNA structures, rather than cofactors, in localising mutation during tumourigenesis and antibody maturation.

    RNA-guided retargeting of Sleeping Beauty transposition in human cells

    Adrian Kovač et al.
    Fusion proteins composed of the Sleeping Beauty transposase and catalytically inactive Cas9 target transposon integration into genomic regions specified by single guide RNAs.

    Unravelling druggable signalling networks that control F508del-CFTR proteostasis

    Ramanath Narayana Hegde et al.
    Analysis of the mechanism of action of cystic fibrosis corrector drugs reveals signalling pathways potently controlling the proteostasis of the main disease-relevant CFTR mutant.

    Single-cell transcriptomes of developing and adult olfactory receptor neurons in Drosophila

    Colleen N McLaughlin et al.
    Single-cell transcriptomes of olfactory receptor neurons at multiple developmental stages reveal cell-type-specific gene expression programs that underlie their development and sensory biology.

    Mitochondrial volume fraction and translation duration impact mitochondrial mRNA localization and protein synthesis

    Tatsuhisa Tsuboi et al.
    Mitochondria can tune the protein synthesis of nuclear-encoded proteins through condition-dependent mRNA localization that is regulated by translation elongation and the geometric constraints of the cell.

    Targeting MYC dependency in ovarian cancer through inhibition of CDK7 and CDK12/13

    Mei Zeng et al.
    A multi-transcriptional CDKs inhibitor suppresses MYC and induces regression of ovarian tumors, indicating that targeting CDK7, 12, 13 with THZ1 may be an effective approach for treating MYC-dependent malignancies.

    Programmed genome editing of the omega-1 ribonuclease of the blood fluke, Schistosoma mansoni

    Wannaporn Ittiprasert et al.
    Gene knock-out of the omega-1 ribonuclease of Schistosoma mansoni eggs resulted in immunologically impaired phenotype, showcasing the novel application of CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and utility for functional genomics in schistosomes.
