    The Ki-67 and RepoMan mitotic phosphatases assemble via an identical, yet novel mechanism

    Ganesan Senthil Kumar et al.
    Building on previous work (Booth et al, 2014), we show how two mitotic phosphatases are formed, how they are regulated by opposing kinases during the cell cycle and reveal a novel opportunity for the development of cancer therapeutics.

    TRAF2 regulates TNF and NF-κB signalling to suppress apoptosis and skin inflammation independently of Sphingosine kinase 1

    Nima Etemadi et al.
    Intrinsic defects in keratinocytes can cause skin inflammation through excessive cell death and production of inflammatory molecules.

    Sex steroids regulate skin pigmentation through nonclassical membrane-bound receptors

    Christopher A Natale et al.
    Two receptors have been identified that can be targeted in melanocytes with selective small molecule agonists to modulate human skin color.

    The human SKA complex drives the metaphase-anaphase cell cycle transition by recruiting protein phosphatase 1 to kinetochores

    Sushama Sivakumar et al.
    Microtubule binding by the Spindle and Kinetochore Associated (Ska) complex concentrates protein phosphatase 1 at metaphase kinetochores to overcome the spindle checkpoint thus driving anaphase onset and mitotic exit.

    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.

    Pivotal role for skin transendothelial radio-resistant anti-inflammatory macrophages in tissue repair

    Olga Barreiro et al.
    A new type of skin perivascular macrophages with extramedullary origin, access to blood and exclusive anti-inflammatory reparative properties has been characterized.

    Herpes simplex type 2 virus deleted in glycoprotein D protects against vaginal, skin and neural disease

    Christopher Petro et al.
    An attenuated Herpes simplex type 2 virus deleted in glycoprotein D can be used as an effective vaccine to provide robust transferable humoral immunity and complete protection in murine intravaginal and skin infection models.
  1. Getting under the skin: an interview with Elena Oancea

    Elena Oancea is a tenure-track assistant professor with her own group at Brown University, where she explores the biology of skin pigmentation and the skin’s responses to light. When she is not a scientist, she is a mother but, as her children tell her, more often than not she is both.

    Patterning: Fishing for ancestry

    Hannah Brunsdon, E Elizabeth Patton
    The same genes and signalling pathways control the formation of skin appendages in both fish and land animals.
