    A plant-like mechanism coupling m6A reading to polyadenylation safeguards transcriptome integrity and developmental gene partitioning in Toxoplasma

    Dayana C Farhat et al.
    The epitranscriptomic-driven mRNA polyadenylation pathway protects transcriptome integrity by restricting transcriptional read-throughs and RNA chimera formation in apicomplexan parasites and plants.

    Somatic aging pathways regulate reproductive plasticity in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Maria C Ow et al.
    Somatic aging and germline RNAi pathways promote inheritance of ancestral starvation memory through reallocation of fat storage in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Establishment of H3K9me3-dependent heterochromatin during embryogenesis in Drosophila miranda

    Kevin H-C Wei et al.
    Heterochromatin is established at nucleation sites associated with open chromatin and RNA transcripts and matures into stable domains if they are found near transposable elements targeted by maternally deposited piRNAs.

    HP1α is a chromatin crosslinker that controls nuclear and mitotic chromosome mechanics

    Amy R Strom et al.
    Micromanipulation experiments demonstrate that HP1α strengthens interphase and mitotic chromosome mechanics and maintains nuclear shape by chromatin crosslinking, separate from histone methylation.

    Random sub-diffusion and capture of genes by the nuclear pore reduces dynamics and coordinates inter-chromosomal movement

    Michael Chas Sumner et al.
    Measuring and simulating chromatin dynamics reveals that repositioning of genes to the nuclear pore is neither active nor vectorial, but reduces sub-diffusion and coordinates movement between loci on different chromosomes.

    A TORC1-histone axis regulates chromatin organisation and non-canonical induction of autophagy to ameliorate ageing

    Yu-Xuan Lu et al.
    Modulation of histone levels in gut enterocytes by rapamycin treatment alters chromatin organisation and induces intestinal autophagy through transcriptional regulation to prevent age-related decline in the intestine and extend lifespan.

    Mesoscale phase separation of chromatin in the nucleus

    Gaurav Bajpai et al.
    Computer simulations show transitions between novel types of chromatin organization (peripheral, central, conventional) depending on chromatin interactions with itself, the lamin and nuclear hydration, measured in recent experiments.
