    Hemodynamic-mediated endocardial signaling controls in vivo myocardial reprogramming

    Manuel Gálvez-Santisteban et al.
    The heart is able to sense and adaptively respond to environmental changes due to cardiac injury through flow-mediated mechanisms that regulate cardiomyocyte reprogramming and regeneration.

    Zinc shapes the folding landscape of p53 and establishes a pathway for reactivating structurally diverse cancer mutants

    Adam R Blanden et al.
    p53 folding is critically dependent on zinc, and a synthetic metallochaperone rescues tumorigenic mutations that reduce p53's zinc affinity as well as thermodynamic stability.

    Quantitative perturbation-based analysis of gene expression predicts enhancer activity in early Drosophila embryo

    Rupinder Sayal et al.
    Mathematical modeling of mutagenesis data for a suite of enhancers uncovers new relationships between the binding sites of transcription factors that help in genome-wide prediction of enhancers.

    Conformational distributions of isolated myosin motor domains encode their mechanochemical properties

    Justin R Porter et al.
    Shifts in the balance between nucleotide-favorable and nucleotide-unfavorable conformations of myosin motors encode duty ratios and ADP release rates, demonstrating the power of an ensemble perspective for uncovering sequence-function relationships.

    Negative reciprocity, not ordered assembly, underlies the interaction of Sox2 and Oct4 on DNA

    John W Biddle et al.
    Rigorous reanalysis of single-molecule data yields evidence for energy expenditure in the interaction of transcription factors on DNA.

    Structural basis of interprotein electron transfer in bacterial sulfite oxidation

    Aaron P McGrath et al.
    A structural and functional analysis of the electron transfer complex between a sulfite oxidase and its redox protein partner reveals an elegant compromise between the requirements for fast and efficient electron transfer and reaction specificity.

    Coupling between the DEAD-box RNA helicases Ded1p and eIF4A

    Zhaofeng Gao et al.
    Ded1p and eIF4A, two RNA helicases that function in eukaryotic translation initiation, interact physically with each other and with the scaffolding protein eIF4G.

    Viral genome structures are optimal for capsid assembly

    Jason D Perlmutter et al.
    Computer simulations reveal that viral nucleic acids have an ideal structure for being packaged into outer protein shells called capsids.

    The solubility product extends the buffering concept to heterotypic biomolecular condensates

    Aniruddha Chattaraj et al.
    The solubility product, a thermodynamic concept classically applied to poorly soluble ionic solutes, can rationalize the concentration dependence for liquid-liquid phase separation of multicomponent multivalent molecules.

    Computational and cellular studies reveal structural destabilization and degradation of MLH1 variants in Lynch syndrome

    Amanda B Abildgaard et al.
    Biophysical modeling, performed in silico, can predict the abundance, metabolic stability, and function of MLH1 inside living cells.
