    Chromocenters: Bundling up DNA

    Susan A Gerbi
    Structures known as chromocenters, comprising satellite DNA and proteins such as D1 or HMGA1, help to contain DNA inside the nucleus between cell divisions.

    A conserved function for pericentromeric satellite DNA

    Madhav Jagannathan et al.
    Satellite DNA mediates clustering of multiple chromosomes via formation of chromocenter to encapsulate the full complement of the genome into a single nucleus.

    The modular mechanism of chromocenter formation in Drosophila

    Madhav Jagannathan et al.
    Cell biological study reveals the mechanism by which multiple satellite-DNA-binding proteins cooperate to form chromocenter to encapsulate the full complement of chromosomes.

    Inter-Fork Strand Annealing causes genomic deletions during the termination of DNA replication

    Carl A Morrow et al.
    The discovery of a mechanism that causes DNA deletions during non-canonical DNA replication termination is described.

    Actin assembly ruptures the nuclear envelope by prying the lamina away from nuclear pores and nuclear membranes in starfish oocytes

    Natalia Wesolowska et al.
    Combined light and electron microscopy reveals a new function for Arp2/3-mediated actin assembly in nuclear envelope rupture, which leads to a separation of nuclear membranes and pores from the lamina.

    HMMR acts in the PLK1-dependent spindle positioning pathway and supports neural development

    Marisa Connell et al.
    HMMR regulates spindle positioning in neural and other cell types downstream of PLK1 and subsequently affects cortical NuMA-Dynein localization.

    p53 activity is selectively licensed in the Drosophila stem cell compartment

    Annika Wylie et al.
    Ancient features of the p53 regulatory network are coupled to the stem cell compartment in normal and pathologic contexts.

    The transcription factors TFE3 and TFEB amplify p53 dependent transcriptional programs in response to DNA damage

    Owen A Brady et al.
    Disruption of TFEB and TFE3 results in diminished p53 signaling capacity and altered cell cycle regulation under genotoxic stress conditions.
