Mass spectrometry exposes a post-transcriptionally regulated reduction in protein diversity in hematopoietic stem cells, including a lack of detectable Dnmt3a protein levels despite mRNA levels comparable to progenitors.
Mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells, highly activated and dysfunctional in sepsis patients, contribute to tissue-specific cytokine responses that are protective against mortality during experimental sepsis.
A comprehensive literature review delineates the current knowledge of how systemic context, such as age and obesity, can impact CD8+ T cell function, anti-tumor immunity, and immunotherapy responsiveness.
Single-cell RNA analysis of brain endothelium identifies the angiogenic venous capillary subset and respective resident endothelial progenitors at the origin of CCM lesions, while arterial endothelial cells are unaffected.
Plants and humans use a shared mechanism, the eukaryotic metabolic sensor TARGET OF RAPAMYCIN protein kinase and its substrate, an RNA-binding protein called LARP1, to coordinate post-transcriptional gene expression.
