    A big-data approach to understanding metabolic rate and response to obesity in laboratory mice

    June K Corrigan et al.
    The metabolic rate of mice is disproportionately affected by the site of experimentation, affecting the phenotypic interpretation of genetically modified strains.

    Dual expression of Atoh1 and Ikzf2 promotes transformation of adult cochlear supporting cells into outer hair cells

    Suhong Sun et al.
    Adult cochlear supporting cells (SCs) are plastic and respond to ectopic Ikzf2 and Atoh1, and hair cell damage by up-regulating HC and down-regulating their endogenous SC genes.

    TRIM37 prevents formation of centriolar protein assemblies by regulating Centrobin

    Fernando R Balestra et al.
    TRIM37 prevents the formation of centriolar protein assemblies through an atypical de novo assembly pathway that would otherwise threaten genome integrity.

    RNA-dependent RNA targeting by CRISPR-Cas9

    Steven C Strutt et al.
    Divergent Cas9 enzymes direct site-specific single-stranded RNA cleavage, reducing infection by RNA phage in vivo and enabling programmable, PAM-independent repression of gene expression in bacteria.

    HIPPO signaling resolves embryonic cell fate conflicts during establishment of pluripotency in vivo

    Tristan Frum et al.
    HIPPO signaling antagonizes the apical domain of polarized cells, driving cell internalization, regulated gene expression, and cell fate change during formation of pluripotent stem cell progenitors in the mouse embryo.
  1. Professional development: an interview with Maria Fernandes

    While doing a PhD in Pharmacology at King’s College London (KCL), Maria Fernandes seized a number of opportunities – setting up the KCL Pharmacological Society, organising events and sitting on committees – to gain enough experience to move into a career outside of research. She is now the Professional Development Manager at the Microbiology Society.
  2. Getting under the skin: an interview with Elena Oancea

    Elena Oancea is a tenure-track assistant professor with her own group at Brown University, where she explores the biology of skin pigmentation and the skin’s responses to light. When she is not a scientist, she is a mother but, as her children tell her, more often than not she is both.

    BAD inactivation exacerbates rheumatoid arthritis pathology by promoting survival of sublining macrophages

    Jie Li et al.
    Phosphorylation-mediated inactivation of pro-apoptotic BCL-2 family protein BAD confers the apoptosis resistance on synovial sublining macrophages, thereby contributing to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.

    Synaptotagmin-7 places dense-core vesicles at the cell membrane to promote Munc13-2- and Ca2+-dependent priming

    Bassam Tawfik et al.
    Synaptotagmin-7 acts synergistically with synaptotagmin-1 by placing vesicles close to the plasma membrane within reach of the SNARE/Munc13-complex, supporting their priming and setting the stage for fast and slow fusion.

    Antagonistic roles for Ataxin-2 structured and disordered domains in RNP condensation

    Amanjot Singh et al.
    Ataxin-2 interacts with neuronal mRNA in RNP granules.
