    Viral genome structures are optimal for capsid assembly

    Jason D Perlmutter et al.
    Computer simulations reveal that viral nucleic acids have an ideal structure for being packaged into outer protein shells called capsids.

    Mouse brain transcriptome responses to inhaled nanoparticulate matter differed by sex and APOE in Nrf2-Nfkb interactions

    Amin Haghani et al.
    Transcriptome analysis of mouse brain revealed that the APOE4 allele and sex can alter air pollution neurotoxicity in adults.

    Inverted formin 2 regulates intracellular trafficking, placentation, and pregnancy outcome

    Katherine Young Bezold Lamm et al.
    Loss of Inverted Formin-2 impairs intracellular trafficking and trophoblast invasion, resulting in maternal hypertension and intrauterine growth restriction, which represents a novel model of impaired placental invasion that encompasses critical aspects of the great obstetrical syndromes.

    Mycolic acid-specific T cells protect against Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in a humanized transgenic mouse model

    Jie Zhao et al.
    A humanized transgenic mouse model reveals that CD1b-restricted, mycolic acid-specific T cells play a protective role during Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.

    Dilation of fusion pores by crowding of SNARE proteins

    Zhenyong Wu et al.
    A few SNARE complexes suffice to fuse membranes, but many more are needed to dilate the nascent fusion pore by molecular crowding for efficient neurotransmitter or hormone release during exocytosis.

    PTEN controls glandular morphogenesis through a juxtamembrane β-Arrestin1/ARHGAP21 scaffolding complex

    Arman Javadi et al.
    PTEN organizes multicellular architecture by non-catalytic scaffolding of spatially localized β-Arrestin1/ARHGAP21/Cdc42 protein complexes to control mitotic spindle orientation, multicellular configuration and lumen formation.
    1. Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine

    Stress responsive miR-31 is a major modulator of mouse intestinal stem cells during regeneration and tumorigenesis

    Yuhua Tian et al.
    miR-31 drives proliferation of intestinal stem cells, and protects intestinal stem cells against apoptosis both during homeostasis and regeneration in response to ionizing radiation injury, and promotes intestinal tumorigenesis through regulation of multiple signaling pathways.

    Huntingtin’s spherical solenoid structure enables polyglutamine tract-dependent modulation of its structure and function

    Ravi Vijayvargia et al.
    Structural and biochemical analysis of full-length huntingtin protein illuminates the impact of the polyglutamine region on its structure and function.

    Photoreceptor avascular privilege is shielded by soluble VEGF receptor-1

    Ling Luo et al.
    The eye produces a protein that inhibits the growth of blood vessels in the deep retina, which includes the photoreceptor layer, and disruption of this process can lead to blindness.
