    Dithiothreitol causes toxicity in C. elegans by modulating the methionine–homocysteine cycle

    Gokul G, Jogender Singh
    The redox reagent dithiothreitol causes toxicity by depleting S-adenosylmethionine levels, and dietary vitamin B12 could alleviate this toxicity via the methionine synthase enzyme.

    SDR enzymes oxidize specific lipidic alkynylcarbinols into cytotoxic protein-reactive species

    Pascal Demange et al.
    Deciphering the mechanism of action of a large family of natural and synthetic cytotoxic lipids bioactivated by enantiospecific oxidation into protein-reactive species inspires the development of enzyme-specific prodrugs.

    Autoinhibition and regulation by phosphoinositides of ATP8B1, a human lipid flippase associated with intrahepatic cholestatic disorders

    Thibaud Dieudonné et al.
    Single particle cryo-electron microscopy associated with functional studies reveal a critical role of N- and C-terminal tails in the autoinhibition of the disease-related ATP8B1-CDC50A lipid flippase, the possible role of phosphorylation in autoinhibition relief, and strong activation by PI(3,4,5)P3.
