    A widely distributed metalloenzyme class enables gut microbial metabolism of host- and diet-derived catechols

    Vayu Maini Rekdal et al.
    A previously unrecognized group of metalloenzymes enables human gut microbes to metabolize dietary molecules and neurotransmitters and likely mediates interactions and metabolism among environmental microorganisms.

    YAP1 and TAZ negatively control bone angiogenesis by limiting hypoxia-inducible factor signaling in endothelial cells

    Kishor K Sivaraj et al.
    The interplay between the transcriptional co-regulators YAP1/TAZ and the hypoxia-controlled transcription factor HIF1α differentially regulates endothelial cell behavior in the hypoxic environment of bone compared to other organs.

    Abnormal oxidative metabolism in a quiet genomic background underlies clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma

    Jianing Xu et al.
    A distinct class of kidney tumors is characterized not by patterns of somatic mutations, but by a distinct metabolism.

    Total biosynthesis of the cyclic AMP booster forskolin from Coleus forskohlii

    Irini Pateraki et al.
    The entire biosynthetic pathway for the diterpenoid forskolin in Coleus forskohlii has been reconstituted in yeast.

    A bioactive peptide amidating enzyme is required for ciliogenesis

    Dhivya Kumar et al.
    Analysis of Chlamydomonas, planaria and mice reveals a novel and unanticipated role for a peptide amidating enzyme in primary and motile ciliary assembly through effects on post-Golgi trafficking.

    Plasma membrane overgrowth causes fibrotic collagen accumulation and immune activation in Drosophila adipocytes

    Yiran Zang et al.
    Excess membrane can trap outgoing extracellular matrix proteins in secreting cells, leading to pericellular deposits that cause tissue damage.

    Molecular basis for catabolism of the abundant metabolite trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline by a microbial glycyl radical enzyme

    Lindsey RF Backman et al.
    The common post-translational modification trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline is reversed by gut microbes with the help of hydroxyproline dehydratase (HypD), an enzyme that performs a radical chemical mechanism.
