    Thalidomide promotes degradation of SALL4, a transcription factor implicated in Duane Radial Ray syndrome

    Katherine A Donovan et al.
    Thalidomide and its derivates induce degradation of many C2H2 zinc-finger transcription factors, including SALL4, providing insight into a long-standing mystery in modern pharmacology, and starting points for future drug development.

    Enhanced homology-directed human genome engineering by controlled timing of CRISPR/Cas9 delivery

    Steven Lin et al.
    Building on previous work (Jinek et al., 2013), we report a simple and robust system to achieve high fidelity and high efficiency (30% of homologous recombination) genome engineering by homology-directed repair pathway in human cells using cell cycle synchronization and timed delivery of Cas9 ribonucleoprotein complexes.

    Cohesin mutations are synthetic lethal with stimulation of WNT signaling

    Chue Vin Chin et al.
    Hypersensitivity of cohesin-deficient cells to Wnt signaling is concomitant with beta catenin stabilization and offers promise that Wnt agonists could be therapeutically effective in cohesin mutant cancers.

    High-resolution structures of multiple 5-HT3AR-setron complexes reveal a novel mechanism of competitive inhibition

    Sandip Basak et al.
    Cryo-electron microscopic structures of 5-HT3A receptor in complex with first and second generations of clinically used setron reveal the molecular basis for their binding modes and mechanisms of inhibitory action.

    Sequential perturbations to mouse corticogenesis following in utero maternal immune activation

    Cesar P Canales et al.
    Mid-gestational exposure to maternal immune activation drives a sequence of transcriptional signatures and developmental pathology in embryonic mouse cortex, culminating in altered lamination and cellular lineage specification.

    The role of the NMD factor UPF3B in olfactory sensory neurons

    Kun Tan et al.
    The nonsense-mediated RNA decay (NMD) branch-specific factor UPF3B influences olfactory sensory neuron cell populations, the olfactory receptor repertoire, and antimicrobial gene expression.

    Profound alteration in cutaneous primary afferent activity produced by inflammatory mediators

    Kristen M Smith-Edwards et al.
    Inflammatory pain, previously thought to result from increased activity in "pain" neurons, may in fact be due to wholesale changes in afferent output that includes increased and decreased activity that the brain interprets as pain.

    Live-cell single-molecule tracking highlights requirements for stable Smc5/6 chromatin association in vivo

    Thomas J Etheridge et al.
    In vivo single-molecule imaging demonstrates that Smc5/6 chromatin association depends on ATP hydrolysis and dsDNA binding, requires Nse6 and is modulated by Brc1 after DNA damage.

    Disruption of glycolytic flux is a signal for inflammasome signaling and pyroptotic cell death

    Laura E Sanman et al.
    A signal for inflammatory cell death is induced by the disruption of cellular metabolism.

    Quantitative proteomic analysis reveals posttranslational responses to aneuploidy in yeast

    Noah Dephoure et al.
    Aneuploidy produces a protein expression signature characteristic of altered metabolism and redox homeostasis, and the loss of UBP6 ameliorates several aneuploidy-associated phenotypes.
