CPEB4's switch from translational repressor to activator is regulated during cell cycle by hyperphosphorylation of its intrinsically disordered domain, which controls its phase-separation into RNA-containing liquid-like droplets.
Specification and expansion during rib development is explained by Agent-Based Modeling while respecting the locality of decision-making that occurs as millions of cells coordinate their behavior to form and refine spatial pattern.
Computational and theoretical models reveal mechanisms by which protein compartments assemble around enzymes and reagents to facilitate reactions in bacteria, allowing the identification of strategies for reengineering such compartments as customizable nanoreactors.
A panel of chimpanzee induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) will help realise the potential of iPSCs in primate studies, and in combination with genomic technologies, transform studies of comparative evolution.
A comprehensive analysis of the glucocorticoid-sensitive pro-inflammatory genes in macrophages reveals fundamental differences between the temporal events and components of transcriptional machinery that the glucocorticoid receptor targets to repress their transcription.
