    A phase transition enhances the catalytic activity of SARM1, an NAD+ glycohydrolase involved in neurodegeneration

    Heather S Loring et al.
    The catalytic activity of SARM1, a key promoter of neuronal degeneration, is activated by >2000-fold by a phase transition.

    Structure and mechanistic features of the prokaryotic minimal RNase P

    Rebecca Feyh et al.
    The novel cryo-electron microscopy structure of a bacterial protein-only RNase P illustrates how a small protein oligomerizes into a dodecameric assembly to catalyze the 5’-end maturation of tRNAs.

    Method development and characterisation of the low-molecular-weight peptidome of human wound fluids

    Mariena JA van der Plas et al.
    Peptidomics method development and analysis of qualitative differences of peptide patterns in human wound fluids provide potential biomarkers for wound healing and infection.

    The linear ubiquitin chain assembly complex (LUBAC) generates heterotypic ubiquitin chains

    Alan Rodriguez Carvajal et al.
    The E3 ubiquitin ligase complex linear ubiquitin chain assembly complex (LUBAC) forms a branched chain on linear ubiquitin chains depending on the RING-in-between-RING-type E3 ligase heme-oxidized IRP2 ubiquitin ligase 1 (HOIL-1L).

    Post-translational flavinylation is associated with diverse extracytosolic redox functionalities throughout bacterial life

    Raphaël Méheust et al.
    Bioinformatic and biochemical studies provide evidence that covalently bound flavins are common and participate in wide-ranging extracytosolic redox activities throughout bacterial life.

    Intrinsic OXPHOS limitations underlie cellular bioenergetics in leukemia

    Margaret AM Nelson et al.
    Across a physiological span of ATP-free energy, leukemic mitochondria primarily consume, rather than produce, ATP.

    Multiple pathways of toxicity induced by C9orf72 dipeptide repeat aggregates and G4C2 RNA in a cellular model

    Frédéric Frottin et al.
    Protein aggregates resulting from mutations in C9orf72 impair different aspects of cellular quality control in the cytosol and the nucleus, but mRNA-mediated effects contribute more strongly to toxicity.
