    NADPH oxidase mediates microtubule alterations and diaphragm dysfunction in dystrophic mice

    James Anthony Loehr et al.
    Reative oxygen species modulate microtubules and diaphragm function.

    NuRD and CAF-1-mediated silencing of the D4Z4 array is modulated by DUX4-induced MBD3L proteins

    Amy E Campbell et al.
    CRISPR/Cas9 engineered locus-specific proteomics leads to the identification of NuRD, CAF-1, and MBD3L2 as regulators of the early embryonic transcription factor DUX4.

    NAD+ enhances ribitol and ribose rescue of α-dystroglycan functional glycosylation in human FKRP-mutant myotubes

    Carolina Ortiz-Cordero et al.
    The combined use of NAD+ with ribitol or ribose potentiates the rescue of α-dystroglycan functional glycosylation in FKRP-mutant patient-specific iPSC-derived myotubes, representing potential novel treatments for FKRP muscular dystrophies.

    Molecular basis for dyneinopathies reveals insight into dynein regulation and dysfunction

    Matthew G Marzo et al.
    A mutagenesis screen in budding yeast sheds light on dynein regulation and function, and reveals the molecular basis for disease in patients suffering from neuropathies caused by dynein dysfunction.

    Filopodia powered by class x myosin promote fusion of mammalian myoblasts

    David W Hammers et al.
    Filopodia driven by class X myosin promote the fusion of mammalian myoblasts in the development of skeletal muscle and are important for the regeneration of skeletal muscle following muscle injury.

    Caveolae internalization repairs wounded cells and muscle fibers

    Matthias Corrotte et al.
    Cells repair damage to their outer membranes not by patching them as previously thought, but by using proteins called caveolins to remove the damaged regions by endocytosis.

    The mammalian LINC complex component SUN1 regulates muscle regeneration by modulating drosha activity

    Tsui Han Loo et al.
    The LINC complex, that couples the interphase cytoskeleton to the nucleus, regulates the processing of a cluster of miRNAs required for muscle regeneration by recruiting and interacting directly with Drosha.

    Unique morphogenetic signatures define mammalian neck muscles and associated connective tissues

    Eglantine Heude et al.
    Genetic studies in the mouse provide a blueprint of the embryonic origins of neck muscles originating from cranial and somitic mesoderm, as well as associated connective tissue.

    The glucuronyltransferase B4GAT1 is required for initiation of LARGE-mediated α-dystroglycan functional glycosylation

    Tobias Willer et al.
    Post-phosphoryl modification of α-dystroglycan requires the glucuronyltransferase B4GAT1; this enzyme synthesizes the acceptor glycan that serves as a primer for the glycosyltransferase LARGE to synthesize the laminin-binding glycan.

    SOXF factors regulate murine satellite cell self-renewal and function through inhibition of β-catenin activity

    Sonia Alonso-Martin et al.
    A set of ex vivo and in vivo experiments, including genetic ablation and regeneration studies, identify a key regulatory function of SOXF factors in muscle stem cells in mice.
