    Innate immune activation by checkpoint inhibition in human patient-derived lung cancer tissues

    Teresa WM Fan et al.
    Pembrolizumab activates innate immune metabolism and function in primary human non-small cell lung cancer, whereas Pembrolizumab and beta-glucan synergize in enhancing immune metabolism and tumoridical action in brain-metastasized lung cancer.

    Metabolomic profiling of rare cell populations isolated by flow cytometry from tissues

    Andrew W DeVilbiss et al.
    A method was developed for the metabolomic analysis of small numbers of flow cytometrically isolated cells from rare cell populations such as hematopoietic stem cells and circulating cancer cells.

    Spatial self-organization favors heterotypic cooperation over cheating

    Babak Momeni et al.
    Two cooperative populations of yeast cells that cannot distinguish between cooperative partners and cheating intruders can still self-organize into clusters that exclude cheaters.

    Firefly genomes illuminate parallel origins of bioluminescence in beetles

    Timothy R Fallon et al.
    The first genomic view of beetle luciferase evolution indicates evolutionary independence of luciferase between fireflies and click-beetles, and provide valuable datasets which will accelerate the discovery of new biotechnological tools.

    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.

    Transcriptomic analysis reveals reduced transcriptional activity in the malaria parasite Plasmodium cynomolgi during progression into dormancy

    Nicole L Bertschi et al.
    Transcriptome profiling of malaria liver-stage parasites provides unprecedented knowledge on genes and pathways expressed in truly dormant hypnozoites and indicates that dormancy is associated with a switch in energy metabolism.

    m6A RNA methylation impacts fate choices during skin morphogenesis

    Linghe Xi et al.
    METTL3-mediated m6A modification maintains proper cell lineage specification during skin epithelium morphogenesis by coupling transcription and translation of key regulatory pathways.

    Identification of the transcription factor ZEB1 as a central component of the adipogenic gene regulatory network

    Carine Gubelmann et al.
    A large-scale transcription factor screen reveals over twenty novel adipogenic regulators: most notably ZEB1, which exerts essential transcriptional control of fat cell differentiation.

    Pharmacological inhibition of cystine–glutamate exchange induces endoplasmic reticulum stress and ferroptosis

    Scott J Dixon et al.
    Erastin and sorafenib inhibit system xc- and induce ER stress, suggesting these may be useful tools for probing the functions of system xc- and its role in inducing ER stress and ferroptosis.

    Adipocyte NR1D1 dictates adipose tissue expansion during obesity

    Ann Louise Hunter et al.
    Clock protein NR1D1 regulates white adipose tissue expansion and development of obesity-related pathology.
