    A molecular mechanism for LINC complex branching by structurally diverse SUN-KASH 6:6 assemblies

    Manickam Gurusaran, Owen Richard Davies
    The LINC complex has a core 6:6 structure in which KASH-binding induces head-to-head interactions between SUN trimers, suggesting force transduction between cytoskeletal and nuclear components through branched LINC complex networks.

    The zinc finger proteins ZNF644 and WIZ regulate the G9a/GLP complex for gene repression

    Chunjing Bian et al.
    Repression of gene expression by the histone methyltransferase G9a is guided by two zinc finger proteins that can recognize consensus sequences in DNA.

    Cell-specific gain modulation by synaptically released zinc in cortical circuits of audition

    Charles T Anderson et al.
    Synaptic zinc is a novel modulator of cortical sound processing - a modulator that increases the gain of principal neurons, but reduces the gain of interneurons.

    Single cell analysis reveals multiple requirements for zinc in the mammalian cell cycle

    Maria N Lo et al.
    Zinc affects the proliferation-quiescence cell fate decision of mammalian cells, demonstrating that micronutrients can regulate the cell cycle.

    A map of human PRDM9 binding provides evidence for novel behaviors of PRDM9 and other zinc-finger proteins in meiosis

    Nicolas Altemose et al.
    In humans, specific sequence features can predict whether meiotic recombination occurs at sites bound by the protein PRDM9, whose DNA-binding zinc-finger domain can unexpectedly bind to gene promoters and to other copies of PRDM9.

    The LINC complex transmits integrin-dependent tension to the nuclear lamina and represses epidermal differentiation

    Emma Carley et al.
    Forces stemming from cell-matrix adhesions, but not cell-cell adhesions, are directly transmitted to the nuclear lamina to regulate epidermal cell fate.

    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.

    KRAB-zinc finger protein gene expansion in response to active retrotransposons in the murine lineage

    Gernot Wolf et al.
    Unbiased ChIP-seq screens and genetic knockouts of large Kruppel associated box zinc finger protein (KRAB-ZFP) clusters reveal that evolutionarily young KRAB-ZFPs play a redundant role in retrotransposon restriction in mice.

    The mammalian LINC complex component SUN1 regulates muscle regeneration by modulating drosha activity

    Tsui Han Loo et al.
    The LINC complex, that couples the interphase cytoskeleton to the nucleus, regulates the processing of a cluster of miRNAs required for muscle regeneration by recruiting and interacting directly with Drosha.

    LPCAT1 controls phosphate homeostasis in a zinc-dependent manner

    Mushtak Kisko et al.
    Phosphate accumulation in zinc-deficient Arabidobsis shoots is regulated by a pathway involving the transcription factor bZIP23, the phospholipid-remodelling enzyme LPCAT1 and the transporter PHT1;1.
