In an investigation into the effects of drugs on proteins, an active machine learning algorithm chose which sets of experiments to perform and was able to learn an accurate model of the effects after doing only a fraction of the experiments.
The analysis of 20 coral genomic datasets provides unprecedented insights into what makes reef-building corals unique, including the evolution of novel gene families involved in biomineralization, signaling and stress responses that have led to their evolutionary success throughout the Phanerozoic Eon.
TORC2-Ypk1 signaling upregulates flux through the sphingolipid pathway not only by increasing the supply of long-chain base precursors, but also by increasing their use in synthesizing complex sphingolipids.
A comprehensive analysis of the human MICOS complex has identified a novel subunit called QIL1 that is required for cristae junction formation in human cells and Drosophila, through its role in the assembly of the MICOS complex.
In neuronal mitophagy, Parkin and OPTN induce efficient sequestration of damaged somal mitochondria into autophagosomes, but slow turnover via lysosomal acidification may be a point of vulnerability for the cell.
