    Ribosomal protein S27-like is a physiological regulator of p53 that suppresses genomic instability and tumorigenesis

    Xiufang Xiong et al.
    The ribosomal protein, Rps27l, plays an oncogenic role by promoting p53 degradation via stabilizing the Mdm2-Mdm4 complex, but a tumor suppressor role by preventing the aneuploidy and loss of p53 heterozygosity.

    A regulatory module controlling stress-induced cell cycle arrest in Arabidopsis

    Naoki Takahashi et al.
    Arabidopsis deploys the core signalling module that perceives distinct stress signals, such as DNA damage and heat stresses, and represses G2/M-specific genes, thereby causing cell cycle arrest.

    Genome plasticity in Candida albicans is driven by long repeat sequences

    Robert T Todd et al.
    Previously uncharacterized long repeat sequences are associated with significant genome variation that can increase fitness and promote antifungal drug resistance in diverse isolates of Candida albicans.

    A sharp Pif1-dependent threshold separates DNA double-strand breaks from critically short telomeres

    Jonathan Strecker et al.
    A sharp transition in the fate of DNA ends with telomere sequences is identified, which suggests a boundary between DNA double-strand breaks and telomeres.

    Co-transcriptional R-loops are the main cause of estrogen-induced DNA damage

    Caroline Townsend Stork et al.
    The transcriptional response elicited by the hormone estrogen leads to DNA double-strand breaks by promoting R-loop formation in breast cancer cells.

    Efficient termination of nuclear lncRNA transcription promotes mitochondrial genome maintenance

    Dorine Jeanne Mari√ętte du Mee et al.
    RNA Polymerase II transcriptional termination of a nuclear long non-coding RNA is required to maintain the mitochondrial genome and hence promotes budding yeast growth.

    Rad52-Rad51 association is essential to protect Rad51 filaments against Srs2, but facultative for filament formation

    Emilie Ma et al.
    The association of Rad52 with Rad51, while not critical for Rad51 filament formation, is crucial to protect Rad51 filaments from Srs2 translocase activity through the association of Rad52 with complete Rad51 filaments.

    The genomic landscape of human cellular circadian variation points to a novel role for the signalosome

    Ludmila Gaspar et al.
    Cellular genetics highlights differences in protein catabolism in general, and the COP9 signalosome in particular, as one major source of human cellular circadian variation.

    TRAIP drives replisome disassembly and mitotic DNA repair synthesis at sites of incomplete DNA replication

    Remi Sonneville et al.
    The TRAIP ubiquitin ligase is required during mitosis to disassemble the replisome at sites of incomplete DNA replication, and activate the mitotic DNA repair pathway, thus preserving genome integrity.
