    Protein-mediated RNA folding governs sequence-specific interactions between rotavirus genome segments

    Alexander Borodavka et al.
    In rotaviruses, the selective packaging of eleven distinct genomic RNA segments requires virus-encoded protein NSP2 to alter the RNA structures, facilitating their interactions with each other.

    Avoidance of stochastic RNA interactions can be harnessed to control protein expression levels in bacteria and archaea

    Sinan Uğur Umu et al.
    Stochastic mRNA and non-coding RNA hybridisation has a major impact on protein expression.

    Interactions with RNA direct the Polycomb group protein SCML2 to chromatin where it represses target genes

    Roberto Bonasio et al.
    The Polycomb group protein SCML2 contributes to the assembly and gene silencing function of Polycomb Repressive Complex 1 (PRC1) and requires an RNA-binding region to reach chromatin targets.

    Structural elucidation of a novel mechanism for the bacteriophage-based inhibition of the RNA degradosome

    An Van den Bossche et al.
    A bacteriophage remodels the RNA metabolism machinery of a bacterial host to sequentially clear host transcripts and then stabilize the viral RNA.

    DNA methylation presents distinct binding sites for human transcription factors

    Shaohui Hu et al.
    A comprehensive study of human transcription factors reveals that a greater number of these proteins bind to methylated DNA sequences than previously thought.

    A composite double-/single-stranded RNA-binding region in protein Prp3 supports tri-snRNP stability and splicing

    Sunbin Liu et al.
    Structural and functional analyses show how the spliceosomal Prp3 protein concomitantly binds double- and single- stranded regions in U4/U6 di-snRNAs and serves to stabilize the U4/U6•U5 tri-snRNP for splicing.

    Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 searches DNA via a ‘monkey bar’ mechanism

    Johannes Rudolph et al.
    By moving between DNA segments like a child swinging on monkey bars, poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 explores possible DNA damage sites more effectively.

    Topoisomerase VI senses and exploits both DNA crossings and bends to facilitate strand passage

    Timothy J Wendorff, James M Berger
    The engagement of DNA crossings is shown to license ATP hydrolysis and DNA cleavage by topoisomerase VI, a finding with mechanistic ramifications for related GHKL ATPases and meiotic recombination machineries.
