    The C-terminal tail of the bacterial translocation ATPase SecA modulates its activity

    Mohammed Jamshad et al.
    The interaction of SecA with its substrate proteins is regulated by its evolutionarily conserved C-terminal tail, which autoinhibits SecA unless SecA binds to the ribosome.

    Transgenerational inheritance of ethanol preference is caused by maternal NPF repression

    Julianna Bozler et al.
    Maternally experienced environmental stress leads to multigenerational inheritance of ethanol preference and an altered rewards pathway in Drosophila melanogaster.

    A dedicated diribonucleotidase resolves a key bottleneck for the terminal step of RNA degradation

    Soo-Kyoung Kim et al.
    RNA degradation is completed through specific intermediates, such as diribonucleotides, which must be removed from the cells by a specific enzyme.

    Glycosylphosphatidylinositol biosynthesis and remodeling are required for neural tube closure, heart development, and cranial neural crest cell survival

    Marshall Lukacs et al.
    Anchoring of proteins to the cell membrane through the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor is critical for the survival of the cells that will give rise to the brain and face.

    Detailed analysis of chick optic fissure closure reveals Netrin-1 as an essential mediator of epithelial fusion

    Holly Hardy et al.
    Chick optic fissure closure is a powerful new model system for epithelial fusion and has revealed Netrin-1 as a conserved and essential mediator of tissue fusion in multiple contexts.

    The Makorin lep-2 and the lncRNA lep-5 regulate lin-28 to schedule sexual maturation of the C. elegans nervous system

    Hannah Lawson et al.
    Genes implicated in the control of mammalian puberty function as components of a molecular clock that determines the timing of sexual differentiation in the C. elegans nervous system.

    Epigenetic regulation of mammalian Hedgehog signaling to the stroma determines the molecular subtype of bladder cancer

    SungEun Kim et al.
    Pharmacologic inhibition of DNA methylation restrains the growth of urothelial carcinoma by subtype conversion through heightened stromal Hedgehog pathway activity.

    Response to comment on 'AIRE-deficient patients harbor unique high-affinity disease-ameliorating autoantibodies'

    Christina Hertel et al.
    We are writing to reply to the comment by Landegren et al., 2019 about our study (Meyer et al., 2016) on disease-ameliorating autoantibodies.

    Natural depletion of histone H1 in sex cells causes DNA demethylation, heterochromatin decondensation and transposon activation

    Shengbo He et al.
    Transposon activation during male gametogenesis is caused by interactions between DNA demethylation and linker histone H1, developmental depletion of which promotes pollen fertility.
