    Functional evidence implicating chromosome 7q22 haploinsufficiency in myelodysplastic syndrome pathogenesis

    Jasmine C Wong et al.
    Immature hematopoietic cells from mice with a large segmental deletion found in human myeloid malignancies exhibit cardinal features of myelodysplastic syndrome.

    MYBL2 is a sub-haploinsufficient tumor suppressor gene in myeloid malignancy

    Stefan Heinrichs et al.
    Reduced expression of MYBL2 contributes to malignancies of the blood by permitting uncontrolled expansion of blood cell progenitors, implying a tumor suppressor function for this gene.

    MicroRNA-146a acts as a guardian of the quality and longevity of hematopoietic stem cells in mice

    Jimmy L Zhao et al.
    Chronic and excessive inflammation can lead to exhaustion of the supply of hematopoietic stem cells and to myeloid malignancies in mice, mimicking important aspects of the myelodysplastic syndrome found in humans.

    Thalidomide promotes degradation of SALL4, a transcription factor implicated in Duane Radial Ray syndrome

    Katherine A Donovan et al.
    Thalidomide and its derivates induce degradation of many C2H2 zinc-finger transcription factors, including SALL4, providing insight into a long-standing mystery in modern pharmacology, and starting points for future drug development.

    Kinetic competition during the transcription cycle results in stochastic RNA processing

    Antoine Coulon et al.
    Real-time single-molecule visualization of transcription and splicing in living cells reveals that RNA synthesis and processing can occur through multiple pathways on the same gene.

    Synthetic lethality between the cohesin subunits STAG1 and STAG2 in diverse cancer contexts

    Petra van der Lelij et al.
    STAG1 has been identified as a hardwired genetic dependency of cancer cells harbouring mutations in the cohesin subunit and emerging major tumor suppressor STAG2 holds the promise for the development of selective therapeutics.

    Mechanism of completion of peptidyltransferase centre assembly in eukaryotes

    Vasileios Kargas et al.
    Cryo-EM reveals how the central functional site of the ribosome is assembled and provides a framework to interpret the consequences of mutations linked to leukaemia-associated ribosomopathies.

    Replication Study: The common feature of leukemia-associated IDH1 and IDH2 mutations is a neomorphic enzyme activity converting alpha-ketoglutarate to 2-hydroxyglutarate

    Megan Reed Showalter et al.
    Editors' Summary: This Replication Study has reproduced important parts of the original paper.

    Cross-talk between PRMT1-mediated methylation and ubiquitylation on RBM15 controls RNA splicing

    Li Zhang et al.
    Inhibiting PRMT1 enzymatic activity promotes megakaryocyte terminal differentiation via RBM15-mediated RNA metabolism, which is dysregulated in hematological malignancies.

    Pvr expression regulators in equilibrium signal control and maintenance of Drosophila blood progenitors

    Bama Charan Mondal et al.
    The THAP-domain protein Bip1, along with other proteins Nup98 and RpS8, controls the expression of the protein Pvr, a critical non-cell-autonomous regulator of Drosophila blood progenitor maintenance.
