    N-chlorination mediates protective and immunomodulatory effects of oxidized human plasma proteins

    Agnes Ulfig et al.
    N-chlorination, a reversible, oxidative modification, turns plasma proteins into holdase-like chaperones, potent activators of immune cells and pro-survival factors for phagocytic immune cells.

    Neutrophil-generated HOCl leads to non-specific thiol oxidation in phagocytized bacteria

    Adriana Degrossoli et al.
    The use of genetically encoded redox sensors in phagocytized bacteria reveals that, among the toxic cocktail of oxidants released into the neutrophil's phagolysosome, HOCl is the main component responsible for the oxidative modification of bacterial protein thiols.

    Redox controls RecA protein activity via reversible oxidation of its methionine residues

    Camille Henry et al.
    RecA is inactivated by oxidative stress and repaired by the MsrA/B anti-ROS defense system.

    The energy savings-oxidative cost trade-off for migratory birds during endurance flight

    Scott McWilliams et al.
    Migratory birds with fuel stores composed of more omega-6 fats saved energy during long-duration flights, but this short-term energy saving came at the long-term cost of higher oxidative damage.

    Diverse stimuli engage different neutrophil extracellular trap pathways

    Elaine F Kenny et al.
    NETs induction, a central component of the innate immune response, utilises assorted signalling pathways as demonstrated through the analysis of healthy and patient neutrophils treated with five distinct stimuli.

    Nucleophile sensitivity of Drosophila TRPA1 underlies light-induced feeding deterrence

    Eun Jo Du et al.
    Electron-donating nucleophilic compounds activate TRPA1 ion channels in fruit flies and mosquitoes, but not humans, making TRPA1 a promising target for insect repellants.
