    Narrow equilibrium window for complex coacervation of tau and RNA under cellular conditions

    Yanxian Lin et al.
    Liquid-liquid phase separation of tau is demonstrated to be an equilibrium state, stable only within a narrow range near physiological conditions, and thus has the capacity to regulate biological processes.

    Heparin-induced tau filaments are polymorphic and differ from those in Alzheimer’s and Pick’s diseases

    Wenjuan Zhang et al.
    Cryo-EM structures of heparin-induced tau filaments differ from those observed in neurodegenerative disease, illustrating their structural versatility, and prompting questions about the relevance of in vitro amyloid models.

    LTP and memory impairment caused by extracellular Aβ and Tau oligomers is APP-dependent

    Daniela Puzzo et al.
    Oligomeric Amyloid-β and Tau, two proteins involved in Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis, require Amyloid Precursor Protein to enter neurons and exert their detrimental effect on synaptic plasticity and memory.

    Targeted degradation of aberrant tau in frontotemporal dementia patient-derived neuronal cell models

    M Catarina Silva et al.
    A new Cereblon-recruiting bifunctional tau ligand, QC-01-175, promotes aberrant tau degradation and rescue of stress vulnerability in human neuronal cell models of tauopathy.

    Inert and seed-competent tau monomers suggest structural origins of aggregation

    Hilda Mirbaha et al.
    Tau protein exists as two conformational ensembles, one inert, and another that has intrinsic properties of self-association, triggers seeding in cells and in vitro, and is associated with Alzheimer's disease.

    YAP and TAZ regulate adherens junction dynamics and endothelial cell distribution during vascular development

    Filipa Neto et al.
    Endothelial YAP/TAZ shape the developing vasculature by orchestrating mechanical inputs with BMP signalling to promote junctional VE-Cadherin turnover and cellular rearrangements.

    Depleting Trim28 in adult mice is well tolerated and reduces levels of α-synuclein and tau

    Maxime WC Rousseaux et al.
    Loss of a developmentally essential gene in adulthood is tolerated in mice, thus offering potential therapeutic options for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

    HIV Tat controls RNA Polymerase II and the epigenetic landscape to transcriptionally reprogram target immune cells

    Jonathan E Reeder et al.
    Tat uses unexpected regulatory mechanisms to reprogram target immune cells to promote viral replication and rewire pathways beneficial for HIV.

    Differential TAM receptor–ligand–phospholipid interactions delimit differential TAM bioactivities

    Erin D Lew et al.
    Signaling by TAM receptor tyrosine kinases requires the coincident engagement of a TAM ligand with both its receptor and the phospholipid phosphatidylserine.

    Homeostatic and tumourigenic activity of SOX2+ pituitary stem cells is controlled by the LATS/YAP/TAZ cascade

    Emily J Lodge et al.
    The LATS/YAP/TAZ cascade promotes SOX2+ pituitary stem cell fate and when over-activated, transforms normal stem cells into cancer stem cells.
