    HDX-MS reveals structural determinants for RORγ hyperactivation by synthetic agonists

    Timothy S Strutzenberg et al.
    Unique methodology was used to generate a large HDX-MS dataset to inform ligand-mediated activation of RORγ, an approach that can be extended to other nuclear receptors with unresolved ligand-dependent activities.

    Conformational switches control early maturation of the eukaryotic small ribosomal subunit

    Mirjam Hunziker et al.
    Mass spectrometry analysis of purified pre-ribosomal RNAs shows that stable ribosomal RNA domains independently recruit assembly factors, and the cryo-EM structure of the 5' ETS ribonucleoprotein reveals regulatory conformational switches.

    Determining cellular CTCF and cohesin abundances to constrain 3D genome models

    Claudia Cattoglio et al.
    Absolute quantification of CTCF and cohesin reveals quantitative constraints on 3D genome organization and illuminates the molecular architecture of the cohesin complex.

    Comprehensive substrate specificity profiling of the human Nek kinome reveals unexpected signaling outputs

    Bert van de Kooij et al.
    The human NimA-related kinases (Neks) recognize divergent substrate motifs, and include Nek10 as a dual-specificity serine/tyrosine kinase, and Nek6, Nek7 and Nek9 as amplifiers of the Plk1 phospho-motif.

    Protein quality control in the nucleolus safeguards recovery of epigenetic regulators after heat shock

    Maria Azkanaz et al.
    Heat shock induces relocalization of epigenetic modifiers to the nucleolus, which acts as a dedicated protein quality control center that is indispensable for recovery of epigenetic regulators and epigenetic modifications.

    The human gut chemical landscape predicts microbe-mediated biotransformation of foods and drugs

    Leah Guthrie et al.
    A network of the gut chemical landscape predicts microbe-mediated biotransformation of foods and drugs and supports the generation of mechanistic hypotheses of microbiome metabolic phenotypes that shape human biology.

    Synergy between serum amyloid A and secretory phospholipase A2

    Shobini Jayaraman et al.
    SAA removes toxic products of lipolysis of the cell membrane by sPLA2, indicating that SAA and sPLA2 act synergistically to clear debris from injured sites, as required for tissue healing.
