    Lipid droplets and ferritin heavy chain: a devilish liaison in human cancer cell radioresistance

    Luca Tirinato et al.
    Lipid Droplet accumulation is a fingerprint shared by different human cancer radioresistant cells and their biogenesis strongly depend on FTH1 presence.

    TMEM120A contains a specific coenzyme A-binding site and might not mediate poking- or stretch-induced channel activities in cells

    Yao Rong et al.
    Electrophysiological and structural characterizations reveal that a previously proposed ion channel responsible for sensing mechanical pain is insensitive to poking or stretching stimuli for conducting ions and may serve as a coenzyme A-binding protein instead.

    Activation of mTORC1 and c-Jun by Prohibitin1 loss in Schwann cells may link mitochondrial dysfunction to demyelination

    Gustavo Della-Flora Nunes et al.
    mTORC1 and c-Jun are implicated in a possible mechanism causing myelin loss downstream of mitochondrial dysfunction in Schwann cells.

    The interplay of RNA:DNA hybrid structure and G-quadruplexes determines the outcome of R-loop-replisome collisions

    Charanya Kumar et al.
    Reconstitution of orientation-specific R-loop-replisome collisions with purified proteins reveals the differential impact of R-loop-associated RNA:DNA hybrids and G-quadruplexes on replication fork progression.

    Mechanically transduced immunosorbent assay to measure protein-protein interactions

    Christopher J Petell et al.
    METRIS is a method that reports a mechanical readout of protein-protein interactions and due to its unique properties, it will allow many protein-protein interactions to be quantitatively measured easily that are currently laborious to measure with conventional methods.

    Adult stem cell-derived complete lung organoid models emulate lung disease in COVID-19

    Courtney Tindle et al.
    An integrated stem cell-based disease modeling and computational approach demonstrates how proximal airway epithelium is critical for SARS-CoV-2 infectivity and distal alveolar cells are critical for simulating the host responses.

    Tissue environment, not ontogeny, defines murine intestinal intraepithelial T lymphocytes

    Alejandro J Brenes et al.
    In-depth proteomic analyses of intestinal tissue-resident intraepithelial T lymphocytes reveals how these cells are adapted to the intestinal environment through increased cholesterol and lipid metabolism, tailored metabolic profiles, receptors for interacting with epithelial cells, and tightly regulated signalling pathways.

    Synaptotagmin 7 is targeted to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote synaptic vesicle docking in mouse hippocampal neurons

    Jason D Vevea et al.
    Synaptotagmin 7 is asymmetrically localized to the axonal plasma membrane through γ-secretase processing to promote vesicle docking during short-term synaptic plasticity in mouse hippocampal neurons.

    Drosophila STING protein has a role in lipid metabolism

    Katarina Akhmetova et al.
    Drosophila STING protein, or stimulator of interferon genes, has a direct but previously unknown role in the lipid metabolism.

    Subventricular zone/white matter microglia reconstitute the empty adult microglial niche in a dynamic wave

    Lindsay A Hohsfield et al.
    In an empty microglial niche, repopulating microglia arise from subventricular zone and white matter-associated areas without contributions from the bone marrow to fill the mouse brain via a spreading wave.
