    The exon junction complex regulates the splicing of cell polarity gene dlg1 to control Wingless signaling in development

    Min Liu et al.
    The exon junction complex regulates the cell polarity determinant Discs large 1, which acts independently from its role in cell polarity to protect Dishevelled protein from lysosomal degradation in Wingless/Wnt signaling.

    Human Holliday junction resolvase GEN1 uses a chromodomain for efficient DNA recognition and cleavage

    Shun-Hsiao Lee et al.
    The crystal structure of human Holliday junction resolvase GEN1 in complex with DNA reveals a conserved chromodomain as an additional DNA-anchoring point that opens new perspectives for enzyme regulation.

    Genetic association and causal inference converge on hyperglycaemia as a modifiable factor to improve lung function

    William R Reay et al.
    Genetic data revealed existing drugs that could be repurposed to improve lung function, with evidence that compounds which control blood glucose could be particularly useful for respiratory impairment.

    Murine muscle stem cell response to perturbations of the neuromuscular junction are attenuated with aging

    Jacqueline A Larouche et al.
    Muscle stem cells locally respond to perturbations of motor neurons and the neuromuscular junction.

    Exon junction complex proteins bind nascent transcripts independently of pre-mRNA splicing in Drosophila melanogaster

    Subhendu Roy Choudhury et al.
    Deposition of the exon junction complex is thought to be the missing link between pre-mRNA splicing and translation in multicellular organisms, but no evidence of such deposition has been found in Drosophila.

    The neural crest is a source of mesenchymal stem cells with specialized hematopoietic stem cell niche function

    Joan Isern et al.
    Developing long bones contain distinct mesenchymal stem-cell populations derived from mesoderm and neural crest, which have specialized functions in skeleton formation and the establishment of the hematopoietic stem-cell niche, respectively.

    Mechanical heterogeneity along single cell-cell junctions is driven by lateral clustering of cadherins during vertebrate axis elongation

    Robert J Huebner et al.
    Very local molecular patterns impart precise changes in the local mechanics of individual cell-cell junctions.

    PARIS, an optogenetic method for functionally mapping gap junctions

    Ling Wu et al.
    As the first fully genetically encoded method, PARIS allows cell-specific, long-term, repeated measurements of gap junctional coupling with high spatiotemporal resolution, facilitating its study in both health and disease.
