    Interplay of disordered and ordered regions of a human small heat shock protein yields an ensemble of ‘quasi-ordered’ states

    Amanda F Clouser et al.
    Multiple iso-energetic-specific interactions involving the intrinsically-disordered region of sHSP HSPB1 define a quasi-ordered state, providing insights into inherited disease-associated mutations within the region that are thought to be disordered.

    In vivo single-cell lineage tracing in zebrafish using high-resolution infrared laser-mediated gene induction microscopy

    Sicong He et al.
    Infrared laser-mediated gene induction microscopy enables precise single-cell labeling in various tissues of zebrafish, and in vivo visualized single-cell lineage tracing reveals the lineage heterogeneity in hematopoietic endothelial cells.

    A conserved histidine modulates HSPB5 structure to trigger chaperone activity in response to stress-related acidosis

    Ponni Rajagopal et al.
    Small decreases in pH associated with cellular stress conditions unleash a cryptic mode of client binding in a ubiquitously expressed human small heat shock protein that is more effective at delaying client aggregation.

    A ribosome assembly stress response regulates transcription to maintain proteome homeostasis

    Benjamin Albert et al.
    Ribosome assembly is monitored to promote proteostatis through a system whereby unassembled ribosomal proteins lead to activation of heat shock factor 1 and inactivation of the RP gene activator Ifh1.

    Multiplexed mRNA assembly into ribonucleoprotein particles plays an operon-like role in the control of yeast cell physiology

    Rohini R Nair et al.
    Prokaryotes use polycistronic messages for coordinated translation, whereas eukaryotic cells may achieve tunable protein synthesis by packaging monocistronic mRNAs into functional multiplexes via co-transcriptional interallelic coupling and non-canonical histone-H4 functions.

    McsB forms a gated kinase chamber to mark aberrant bacterial proteins for degradation

    Bence Hajdusits et al.
    The McsB kinase is critical for protein quality control in Gram-positive bacteria, assembling a gated phosphorylation chamber during heat-shock conditions to selectively mark misfolded proteins for degradation.

    Endogenous siRNAs promote proteostasis and longevity in germline-less Caenorhabditis elegans

    Moran Cohen-Berkman et al.
    Endo-siRNAs slow down the rate of aging and enable the maintenance of a responsive heat shock response in aging germline-less Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Serotonin signaling by maternal neurons upon stress ensures progeny survival

    Srijit Das et al.
    Neuronal serotonin release tunes transcription response times of Caenorhabditis elegans germ cells to promote the survival and stress resistance of future offspring.

    Evolution of Yin and Yang isoforms of a chromatin remodeling subunit precedes the creation of two genes

    Wen Xu et al.
    Gene sharing through different isoforms can precede the formation of independent genes.

    Heat Shock: When pH comes to the rescue

    Davi Gonçalves et al.
    In starving yeast exposed to thermal stress, a transient drop in intracellular pH helps to trigger the heat shock response.
