    Misfolded proteins bind and activate death receptor 5 to trigger apoptosis during unresolved endoplasmic reticulum stress

    Mable Lam et al.
    Death receptor 5 can directly sense misfolded proteins downstream of the endoplasmic reticulum to provide a quality control mechanism that executes apoptosis and prevents further production of misfolded proteins.

    β11-12 linker isomerization governs acid-sensing ion channel desensitization and recovery

    Matthew L Rook et al.
    The rotation of the β11-12 linker is a crucial control point for acid-sensing ion channel gating and motion of this linker is required for the channel to desensitize.

    An alternatively spliced, non-signaling insulin receptor modulates insulin sensitivity via insulin peptide sequestration in C. elegans

    Bryan A Martinez et al.
    A truncated, non-signaling insulin receptor regulates insulin sensitivity in the nematode C. elegans by sequestering insulin peptides and preventing their interaction with full length receptors.

    Agonist-selective recruitment of engineered protein probes and of GRK2 by opioid receptors in living cells

    Miriam Stoeber et al.
    Chemically distinct opioid ligands promote selective protein recruitment by opioid receptors in intact cells.

    Analysis of zebrafish periderm enhancers facilitates identification of a regulatory variant near human KRT8/18

    Huan Liu et al.
    Analysis of zebrafish periderm enhancers illuminates the conserved DNA of epithelial enhancers across species and prioritizes orofacial-cleft-associated regulatory variants near KRT18/KRT8.

    Paradoxical network excitation by glutamate release from VGluT3+ GABAergic interneurons

    Kenneth A Pelkey et al.
    Glutamate cotransmission from a subset of cortical GABAergic interneurons can promote network hyperexcitability.

    Structural basis for COMPASS recognition of an H2B-ubiquitinated nucleosome

    Evan J Worden et al.
    The structure of the COMPASS methyltransferase bound to an H2B-ubiquitinated nucleosome provides insights into mechanisms of trans-histone cross-talk and the dynamic role of H2B ubiquitination in stimulating histone methylation.

    Large-scale cell-type-specific imaging of protein synthesis in a vertebrate brain

    Or David Shahar, Erin Margaret Schuman
    The development of a transgenic zebrafish allows for cell-type-specific labeling of neuronal protein synthesis, enabling brain-wide visualization and quantification of protein synthesis and demonstrating region-specific increases following elevated brain activity.

    Histone Methylation: Navigating the structure of COMPASS

    Karolin Luger, Jonathan W Markert
    Cryo-electron microscopy reveals how ubiquitination promotes the methylation of histone H3 by the histone-modifying complex COMPASS.

    Control of cell death/survival balance by the MET dependence receptor

    Leslie Duplaquet et al.
    MET acts as a dependence receptor in vivo by promoting hepatocyte apoptosis, a response induced by a caspase generated fragment able to favor calcium exchange between endoplasmic reticulum and mitochondria.
