    Episode 62: December 2019

    In this episode we hear about bomb-proof tardigrades, how tuberculosis gets transmitted between cows and badgers, why ants do not get stuck in traffic jams, the state of mental health in academia and more.

    Episode 1: June 2013

    In the first eLife podcast we hear about the origins of multicellularity, the Irish potato famine, hepatitis viruses, how fog affects the behaviour of car drivers, and the evolution of chromatin.

    Torsin ATPases influence chromatin interaction of the Torsin regulator LAP1

    Naemi Luithle et al.
    The INM protein LAP1B, an activator of Torsin ATPases, is a chromatin-binding factor that erroneously persists on mitotic chromatin if Torsin functionality is compromised, inducing chromosome segregation defects and binucleation.

    Systematic identification of cis-regulatory variants that cause gene expression differences in a yeast cross

    Kaushik Renganaath et al.
    Yeast promoters can harbor multiple natural DNA variants that influence gene expression, interact genetically, evolve under negative selection, alter transcription factor motifs, and remain challenging to predict.

    Sequential activation of transcriptional repressors promotes progenitor commitment by silencing stem cell identity genes

    Noemi Rives-Quinto et al.
    Silencing of stem cell identity genes during progenitor commitment ensures that intermediate progenitors robustly commit to generate differentiated cell types rather than abnormal stem-cell-like cells during indirect neurogenesis.

    Gene regulation gravitates toward either addition or multiplication when combining the effects of two signals

    Eric M Sanford et al.
    When two signals increase transcription of the same gene, their combined effect tends to reflect either the sum of the individual increases or the product of the individual fold-changes.

    Alpha-satellite RNA transcripts are repressed by centromere–nucleolus associations

    Leah Bury et al.
    Single molecule FISH analysis defines the behavior of centromere-derived alpha-satellite transcripts in intact human cells and reveals a critical role for centromere-nucleolar contacts in repressing alpha-satellite transcription.

    Dot1l interacts with Zc3h10 to activate Ucp1 and other thermogenic genes

    Danielle Yi et al.
    Dot1l and its H3K79 methyltransferase activity are required for thermogenesis, and Dot1l is recruited by Zc3h10 to its targets genes to alter chromatin accessibility to activate the thermogenic gene program.
