    Live-cell single particle imaging reveals the role of RNA polymerase II in histone H2A.Z eviction

    Anand Ranjan et al.
    Histone variant H2A.Z is deposited near transcription start sites by the chromatin remodeler SWR1 and seems to be removed by RNA polymerase II at an early stage of transcription elongation.

    A tudor domain protein, SIMR-1, promotes siRNA production at piRNA-targeted mRNAs in C. elegans

    Kevin I Manage et al.
    SIMR-1 acts downstream of the piRNA pathway to promote siRNA amplification by the Mutator complex and localizes to perinuclear foci distinct from Mutator foci, P granules and Z granules.

    A molecular filter for the cnidarian stinging response

    Keiko Weir et al.
    Cnidarian stinging cells use a specialized voltage-gated calcium channel to integrate distinct sensory signals and selectively trigger a predatory response.

    A viral fusogen hijacks the actin cytoskeleton to drive cell-cell fusion

    Ka Man Carmen Chan et al.
    A viral fusogen drives cell-cell fusion by hijacking the actin machinery to directly couple actin assembly with a short fusogenic ectodomain.

    Rarity is a more reliable indicator of land-use impacts on soil invertebrate communities than other diversity metrics

    Andrew Dopheide et al.
    Rarity metrics reveal pervasive negative impacts of agricultural land use on soil invertebrate communities, whereas widely-used richness and diversity metrics underestimate the magnitude of these impacts.

    Intravascular flow stimulates PKD2 (polycystin-2) channels in endothelial cells to reduce blood pressure

    Charles E MacKay et al.
    PKD2 (polycystin-2) channels are a major component of a flow-sensing signaling mechanism in endothelial cells that stimulates vasodilation and reduces blood pressure.

    Efficient targeted integration directed by short homology in zebrafish and mammalian cells

    Wesley A Wierson et al.
    Short homology arms exposed by CRISPR/Cas9 cleavage can target integration at genomic CRISPR/Cas9 cut sites at high frequencies with reproducible precision using pGTag vectors in zebrafish and mammalian cells.

    Developmental loss of MeCP2 from VIP interneurons impairs cortical function and behavior

    James M Mossner et al.
    Loss of function of the Rett syndrome gene MeCP2 in a small but powerful interneuron population, the VIP cells, causes a unique combination of impairments in neural function and behavior.

    An H3K9 methylation-dependent protein interaction regulates the non-enzymatic functions of a putative histone demethylase

    Gulzhan Raiymbek et al.
    A putative histone demethylase in fission yeast has non-enzymatic properties that regulates heterochromatin assembly and epigenetic inheritance.

    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii leads to neocentromere formation and chromosome fusions

    Klaas Schotanus, Joseph Heitman
    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii results in neocentromeres, which span actively expressed genes and at elevated temperatures cen10∆ mutants are unstable leading to chromosome fusion and silencing of the neocentromere.
