    circHIPK3 nucleates IGF2BP2 and functions as a competing endogenous RNA

    Trine Line Hauge Okholm, Andreas Bjerregaard Kamstrup ... Christian Kroun Damgaard
    A dysregulated circular RNA in bladder cancer controls oncogenic pathways by tethering specific RNA-binding proteins, which in turn inhibits their normal functions.

    Multi-omic analysis of bat versus human fibroblasts reveals altered central metabolism

    N Suhas Jagannathan, Javier Yu Peng Koh ... Lisa Tucker-Kellogg
    To investigate why bats are long-lived and cancer-resistant, multi-omic data from bat and human cells was analyzed using computational flux modeling, suggesting dysregulation of succinate-fumarate dynamics and an ischemic-like basal metabolism in bat cells.

    Hsp47 promotes biogenesis of multi-subunit neuroreceptors in the endoplasmic reticulum

    Ya-Juan Wang, Xiao-Jing Di ... Ting-Wei Mu
    Hsp47 positively regulates the functional surface expression of endogenous GABAA receptors and plays a critical and general role in the maturation of Cys-loop neuroreceptors.

    Stimulation-induced cytokine polyfunctionality as a dynamic concept

    Kevin Portmann, Aline Linder, Klaus Eyer
    Resolving parallel and concurrent cytokine secretion is essential to studying polyfunctional cytokine-secreting cells, and to differentiating immune response granularity from unwinding the complexity and heterogeneity of cytokine responses.
