    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.

    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.

    MeCP2 nuclear dynamics in live neurons results from low and high affinity chromatin interactions

    Francesco M Piccolo et al.
    Single molecular imaging of MeCP2 at high spatial/temporal resolution identifies distinct structural domains contributing to its dynamic behaviors and chromatin interactions in live neurons.

    The biogenesis of CLEL peptides involves several processing events in consecutive compartments of the secretory pathway

    Nils Stührwohldt et al.
    Step-wise processing of plant peptide hormone precursors by subtilisin-like proteinases in consecutive compartments of the secretory pathway is required for formation and secretion of the bioactive peptides.

    Extracellular matrix signatures of human mammary carcinoma identify novel metastasis promoters

    Alexandra Naba et al.
    Many extracellular matrix proteins that are up-regulated during breast tumor progression enhance metastasis, and some are prognostic indicators of poor survival.
