    A beta-glucosidase of an insect herbivore determines both toxicity and deterrence of a dandelion defense metabolite

    Meret Huber et al.
    An insect digestive enzyme metabolizes a plant defense compound and thereby modulates herbivore performance and host plant choice, which in turn may alter plant defense evolution in nature.

    Inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 polymerase by nucleotide analogs from a single-molecule perspective

    Mona Seifert et al.
    High-throughput and ultra-stable magnetic tweezers reveal that Remdesivir induces a long-lived backtrack pause upon incorporation by the coronavirus polymerase, and SARS-CoV-2 is able to evade interferon-induced antiviral ddhCTP.

    End-of-life targeted degradation of DAF-2 insulin/IGF-1 receptor promotes longevity free from growth-related pathologies

    Richard Venz et al.
    Inducible degradation of the insulin/insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor shows that a doubling in lifespan is possible even at extremely old ages in an organism.

    Protective mitochondrial fission induced by stress-responsive protein GJA1-20k

    Daisuke Shimura et al.
    Stress-induced alternative translation of an otherwise common gap junction protein generates an isoform that orchestrates protective mitochondrial fission and organ protection during anticipated ischemia.

    Members of the ELMOD protein family specify formation of distinct aperture domains on the Arabidopsis pollen surface

    Yuan Zhou et al.
    Pollen aperture patterning in Arabidopsis is controlled by members of the ELMOD protein family, whose expression levels in developing pollen lineage are tightly regulated.

    TMEM120A contains a specific coenzyme A-binding site and might not mediate poking- or stretch-induced channel activities in cells

    Yao Rong et al.
    Electrophysiological and structural characterizations reveal that a previously proposed ion channel responsible for sensing mechanical pain is insensitive to poking or stretching stimuli for conducting ions and may serve as a coenzyme A-binding protein instead.

    A morphological transformation in respiratory syncytial virus leads to enhanced complement deposition

    Jessica P Kuppan et al.
    Respiratory syncytial virus produces filamentous particles that change shape when the viral matrix detaches from the viral membrane, and this change in shape results in enhanced deposition of complement proteins, with potential downstream consequences.

    Differentiation of mouse fetal lung alveolar progenitors in serum-free organotypic cultures

    Konstantinos Gkatzis et al.
    A serum-free organotypic culture model of mouse lung epithelial progenitors was developed and used to screen WNT modulators for regulators of epithelial differentiation.

    Mechanically transduced immunosorbent assay to measure protein-protein interactions

    Christopher J Petell et al.
    METRIS is a method that reports a mechanical readout of protein-protein interactions and due to its unique properties, it will allow many protein-protein interactions to be quantitatively measured easily that are currently laborious to measure with conventional methods.

    Age-dependent changes in protein incorporation into collagen-rich tissues of mice by in vivo pulsed SILAC labelling

    Yoanna Ariosa-Morejon et al.
    Protein dynamics signatures in ageing collagen-rich tissues that are central to frequent age-related diseases such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
