By controlling the SUMOylation of the protein CAR-1, the aging-regulating pathways downstream of the Insulin/IGF signaling cascade and of the germ cells of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans are integrated.
The spindle checkpoint kinase Mps1 sequentially phosphorylates multiple substrates to amplify checkpoint signals, making the checkpoint highly dependent on Mps1 function and directly responsive to kinetochore-microtubule attachment.
An unbiased transcriptional profiling screen reveals the secreted matrix metalloproteinase MMP-1 is a transcriptional target of the ensheathing glial receptor Draper following acute axon injury in adult Drosophila.
A cell-free system combined with cell-based assays elucidate the biochemical mechanism of signal transduction mediated by the mitochondrial protein MAVS and delineates the role of ubiquitin E3 ligases in antiviral innate immune responses.
Notch ligands Jag1 and Dll4 and their effector Ephb2 are required in sinus venosus endocardium for primitive coronary vasculature formation and later for arterial differentiation and maturation of coronary endothelium.
