    Structure of the chromatin remodelling enzyme Chd1 bound to a ubiquitinylated nucleosome

    Ramasubramanian Sundaramoorthy et al.
    The unwrapping two turns of DNA on Chd1-bound nucleosomes cause the histone H3 tail and ubiquitin to be re-positioned.

    SPOP mutation leads to genomic instability in prostate cancer

    Gunther Boysen et al.
    SPOP mutations underlie a novel, genomically unstable subclass of prostate cancer by altering DNA repair.

    Two consecutive microtubule-based epithelial seaming events mediate dorsal closure in the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita

    Juan Jose Fraire-Zamora et al.
    Evolutionary reduction in tissue number involves the simplification of the seaming process but not signaling during epithelial fusion.

    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.

    Cytoskeletal tension and Bazooka tune interface geometry to ensure fusion fidelity and sheet integrity during dorsal closure

    Piyal Taru Das Gupta, Maithreyi Narasimha
    Restoration of molecular and morphological symmetry and mechanical integrity following epithelial fusion relies on adaptive changes that are mediated by cytoskeletal tension and Bazooka dependent modulation of fusing interface geometry.

    Tet2 and Tet3 cooperate with B-lineage transcription factors to regulate DNA modification and chromatin accessibility

    Chan-Wang Lio et al.
    TET methylcytosine oxidases cooperate with B lineage-specific transcription factors to promote immunoglobulin gene rearrangement by depositing 5hmC, facilitating DNA demethylation and increasing chromatin accessibility at enhancers.

    Distinct mechanisms define murine B cell lineage immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) repertoires

    Yang Yang et al.
    The B-1a cell heavy chain antibody repertoire differs dramatically from the follicular and marginal zone B cell repertoire and is defined by distinct mechanisms driven by self antigens rather than antigens derived from the microbiota.

    Abundant toxin-related genes in the genomes of beneficial symbionts from deep-sea hydrothermal vent mussels

    Lizbeth Sayavedra et al.
    Beneficial symbiotic bacteria encode an exceptional number of toxin-related genes that are all expressed by the symbionts in the host, supporting their key role in host-microbe interactions.

    Multi-state recognition pathway of the intrinsically disordered protein kinase inhibitor by protein kinase A

    Cristina Olivieri et al.
    A combination of NMR, fluorescence, and molecular dynamics simulations reveals the recognition mechanism for the intrinsically disordered regulator of protein kinase A, highlighting the enzyme's nuclear export process.

    Multiple sources of slow activity fluctuations in a bacterial chemosensory network

    Remy Colin et al.
    Single-cell FRET measurements reveal large temporal activity fluctuations within this signaling pathway in Escherichia coli, caused by stochasticity of receptor methylation combined with allosteric interactions and slow rearrangements within receptor clusters.
