    Sodium taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide is a functional receptor for human hepatitis B and D virus

    Huan Yan et al.
    Biochemical and genetic tests have revealed that a liver protein called NTCP is a functional receptor for hepatitis B and D viruses, which should lead to an improved understanding of the infections caused by these viruses and assist the development of new intervention strategies.

    NOVA-dependent regulation of cryptic NMD exons controls synaptic protein levels after seizure

    Taesun Eom et al.
    The HITS-CLIP sequencing method is used to demonstrate that cryptic exons can detect messenger RNA that contains nonsense mutations, and then cause this RNA to decay, which shows that these exons are involved in maintaining the electrical balance of neurons and, possibly, preventing epilepsy.

    Viral genome structures are optimal for capsid assembly

    Jason D Perlmutter et al.
    Computer simulations reveal that viral nucleic acids have an ideal structure for being packaged into outer protein shells called capsids.
  1. Cutting Edge: A network approach to mixing delegates at meetings

    Federico Vaggi et al.
    A network-based ‘speed dating’ approach can promote interactions between delegates at scientific meetings.

    Holocentromeres are dispersed point centromeres localized at transcription factor hotspots

    Florian A Steiner, Steven Henikoff
    Worm holocentromeres show a polycentric distribution, with each site containing a single centromeric nucleosome and also being targeted by multiple transcription factors.

    Ki-67 is a PP1-interacting protein that organises the mitotic chromosome periphery

    Daniel G Booth et al.
    The mitotic chromosome periphery is organised by the PP1 binding protein Ki-67 and contributes to nucleolar re-activation upon mitotic exit.

    MicroRNAs shape circadian hepatic gene expression on a transcriptome-wide scale

    Ngoc-Hien Du et al.
    In the liver, microRNAs exert widespread functions in the modulation of phases and amplitudes of clock-controlled gene expression, but their influence on the core clock is remarkably mild.

    MOF-associated complexes ensure stem cell identity and Xist repression

    Tomasz Chelmicki et al.
    Two complexes that contain the histone acetyl transferase MOF engage in a two-pronged approach to ensure the repression of X inactivation in mouse embryonic stem cells.
