    Bid maintains mitochondrial cristae structure and function and protects against cardiac disease in an integrative genomics study

    Christi T Salisbury-Ruf et al.
    An integrative approach, combining genetic mouse and large-scale human genetics studies, was used to reveal a novel role for the Bcl-2 protein Bid in maintenance of mitochondrial function that alters susceptibility to myocardial infarction.

    NSF-mediated disassembly of on- and off-pathway SNARE complexes and inhibition by complexin

    Ucheor B Choi et al.
    NSF is part of a membrane trafficking quality control system that disassembles both properly formed and off-pathway SNARE complexes, and the disassembly activity may be regulated by complexin.

    Sec17/Sec18 can support membrane fusion without help from completion of SNARE zippering

    Hongki Song et al.
    Sec18(NSF) and Sec17(αSNAP) provide a parallel pathway to fusion that is independent of energy from SNARE zippering.

    Mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis coordinates oxidative metabolism in mammalian mitochondria

    Sara M Nowinski et al.
    Mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis is best known for producing lipoic acid, however, longer acyl chain products regulate mitochondrial electron transport chain assembly, oxidative TCA cycle metabolism, and skeletal myoblast differentiation.

    Multiple factors maintain assembled trans-SNARE complexes in the presence of NSF and αSNAP

    Eric A Prinslow et al.
    Biophysical analyses indicate that Munc18-1, Munc13-1, synaptotagmin-1 and complexin-1 maintain assembled trans-SNARE complexes in the presence of NSF-alphaSNAP, suggesting that they form part of the primed state of synaptic vesicles.

    Non-canonical H3K79me2-dependent pathways promote the survival of MLL-rearranged leukemia

    William F Richter et al.
    FLT3-ITD/STAT5A signaling is more sensitive to Dot1L inhibition than the canonical MLL-fusion activated drivers of leukemogenesis, providing a potential therapeutic avenue for one of the most frequent lesions in leukemia.

    MICOS coordinates with respiratory complexes and lipids to establish mitochondrial inner membrane architecture

    Jonathan R Friedman et al.
    A conserved mitochondrial inner membrane complex called MICOS works together with the mitochondrial lipid cardiolipin and respiratory complexes to direct the position, copy number and stabilization of cristae structures for efficient respiration.
