    Biofilms deform soft surfaces and disrupt epithelia

    Alice Cont et al.
    The growth of multicellular bacterial structures called biofilms generates forces that deform soft material substrates and disrupt epithelial cell layers, potentially mechanically damaging host tissue.

    Characterization of the mechanism by which the RB/E2F pathway controls expression of the cancer genomic DNA deaminase APOBEC3B

    Pieter A Roelofs et al.
    The antiviral and genomic DNA deaminase APOBEC3B is repressed in normal cells by PRC1.6/E2F6 and DREAM/E2F4 complexes and deregulation of this axis provides a unifying mechanism for overexpression in cancer.

    Predicting the effect of statins on cancer risk using genetic variants from a Mendelian randomization study in the UK Biobank

    Paul Carter et al.
    Genetic evidence in humans suggests that statins reduce cancer risk via a cholesterol-independent pathway.

    Pregnancy success in mice requires appropriate cannabinoid receptor signaling for primary decidua formation

    Yingju Li et al.
    Cannabinoid signaling is critical for integration of vascular system and uterine decidualization.

    The transcriptomic response of cells to a drug combination is more than the sum of the responses to the monotherapies

    Jennifer EL Diaz et al.
    The transcriptomic profiles of the constituent monotherapies of synergistic drug pairs tend to be correlated and result in novel gene expression in the combinations.

    Antinociceptive modulation by the adhesion GPCR CIRL promotes mechanosensory signal discrimination

    Sven Dannhäuser et al.
    An interdisciplinary approach uncovers a new antinociceptive molecular mechanism and shows that the adhesion GPCR CIRL adjusts the sensation of gentle touch and noxious mechanical insult in opposite directions.

    Host-induced spermidine production in motile Pseudomonas aeruginosa triggers phagocytic uptake

    Sebastian Felgner et al.
    Upon host cell contact, motile but not non-motile Pseudomonas aeruginosa exhibit a change in their gene expression program that includes the expression of spermidine, which triggers motility-dependent phagocytosis.

    Metabolic profiling during malaria reveals the role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in regulating kidney injury

    Michelle M Lissner et al.
    Illustrating the impact of host metabolism on infection outcome, loss of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in radioresistant cells leads to heme-mediated kidney toxicity during malaria.
