    Cryo-EM structure of alpha-synuclein fibrils

    Ricardo Guerrero-Ferreira et al.
    The alpha-synuclein fibril structure reported here buries residues 50-57 at the interface between its two protofilaments, suggesting that familial Parkinson's disease associated mutations in these residues lead to a structure not compatible with the one presented here.

    Estimating the protein burden limit of yeast cells by measuring the expression limits of glycolytic proteins

    Yuichi Eguchi et al.
    Measurement of expression limits of yeast glycolytic proteins reveal the protein burden limit, which is the expression limit of any protein in the cell.

    Pharmacologic ATF6 activating compounds are metabolically activated to selectively modify endoplasmic reticulum proteins

    Ryan Paxman et al.
    The small molecule, 147, is a pro-drug that preferentially activates ATF6 signaling through a mechanism involving localized metabolic activation and selective covalent modification of ER resident proteins involved in regulating ATF6 activity.

    Presenilin mutations deregulate mitochondrial Ca2+ homeostasis and metabolic activity causing neurodegeneration in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Shaarika Sarasija et al.
    In C. elegans, presenilin functions, independent of its gamma-secretase proteolytic activity, to regulate mitochondrial metabolism by controlling ER-mitochondrial calcium transfer and, even in the absence of Abeta signaling, loss of this activity leads to neurodegeneration.

    Importance of miRNA stability and alternative primary miRNA isoforms in gene regulation during Drosophila development

    Li Zhou et al.
    Selective degradation of mature miRNAs shapes temporal miRNA expression patterns and is important for proper regulation of target genes to support normal development of Drosophila embryos.

    Adaptation to constant light requires Fic-mediated AMPylation of BiP to protect against reversible photoreceptor degeneration

    Andrew T Moehlman et al.
    Tuning of BiP activity by Fic-mediated AMPylation is required for Drosophila photoreceptor plasticity and attenuation of the unfolded protein response.

    An automated high-resolution in vivo screen in zebrafish to identify chemical regulators of myelination

    Jason J Early et al.
    A fully automated high-resolution in vivo screening platform for zebrafish was implemented and used to identify novel compounds that regulate oligodendrocyte lineage progression.

    Recruitment of two dyneins to an mRNA-dependent Bicaudal D transport complex

    Thomas E Sladewski et al.
    mRNA cargo orchestrates the activation of an in vitro reconstituted dynein-dynactin-Bicaudal D-Egalitarian complex for robust processive motion on microtubules.

    Inhibiting the integrated stress response pathway prevents aberrant chondrocyte differentiation thereby alleviating chondrodysplasia

    Cheng Wang et al.
    Integrated stress response-induced expression of ATF4 and its transactivation of SOX9 causes aberrant chondrocyte differentiation and skeletal defects which can be alleviated by modulating initiation-factor eIF2α phosphorylation translation control.
