    Sexual transmission of murine papillomavirus (MmuPV1) in Mus musculus

    Megan E Spurgeon, Paul F Lambert
    MmuPV1, a papillomavirus that infects laboratory mice (Mus musculus), is discovered to be sexually transmitted, providing a new animal virus model to study sexually transmitted human papillomaviruses (HPVs).

    Dynamic turnover of centromeres drives karyotype evolution in Drosophila

    Ryan Bracewell et al.
    De novo formation of centromeres creates diverse karyotypes in flies and is accompanied by rapid turnover of centromere-associated satellite repeats.

    H3K9me2 orchestrates inheritance of spatial positioning of peripheral heterochromatin through mitosis

    Andrey Poleshko et al.
    The histone modification H3K9me2 marks peripheral heterochromatin and ensures positional information is safeguarded through cell division such that individual lamina-associated domains are re-established at the nuclear periphery in daughter nuclei.

    Self-assembling manifolds in single-cell RNA sequencing data

    Alexander J Tarashansky et al.
    An iterative self-assembling algorithm identifies the intrinsic structures in single-cell transcriptomic data and helps to discover new cell populations that are undetectable by existing methods.

    Matrix metalloproteinase 1 modulates invasive behavior of tracheal branches during entry into Drosophila flight muscles

    Julia Sauerwald et al.
    Tracheal-derived matrix metalloproteinase 1 activity sustains tracheal branch invasion into myotubes by modulating ECM properties and dynamic behavior of sprouting tip cells.

    Molecular mechanism of TRPV2 channel modulation by cannabidiol

    Ruth A Pumroy et al.
    Cannabidiol binds to TRPV2 via a previously unidentified, but highly conserved, pocket.

    Fog signaling has diverse roles in epithelial morphogenesis in insects

    Matthew Alan Benton et al.
    Fog signaling with a narrow morphogenetic role in Drosophila has a deeply conserved function in epithelial morphogenesis across insects.

    The Mars1 kinase confers photoprotection through signaling in the chloroplast unfolded protein response

    Karina Perlaza et al.
    A genetic screen in a unicellular photosynthetic organism uncovers the first essential signaling component in the chloroplast unfolded protein response that relays information from the chloroplast to the nuclear compartment.

    Dissection of central clock function in Drosophila through cell-specific CRISPR-mediated clock gene disruption

    Rebecca Delventhal et al.
    Through novel, cell-specific CRISPR tools to disrupt molecular clock genes, it was revealed that circadian rhythms are coordinated through a network, rather than by the clock of 'master regulatory' neurons.

    Rare missense variants in the human cytosolic antibody receptor preserve antiviral function

    Jingwei Zeng et al.
    Studying the impact of natural variation on a key immune gene highlights how focusing on a single wild-type sequence overlooks that rare variants cause the most disease.
