    Heat stress impairs centromere structure and segregation of meiotic chromosomes in Arabidopsis

    Lucie Crhak Khaitova, Pavlina Mikulkova ... Karel Riha
    The sensitivity of Arabidopsis meiotic centromeres to heat stress suggests that centromere function is one of the key determinants of plant reproduction under rising temperatures.

    High-altitude hypoxia exposure inhibits erythrophagocytosis by inducing macrophage ferroptosis in the spleen

    Wan-ping Yang, Mei-qi Li ... Qian-qian Luo
    Hypobaric hypoxia exposure initiates splenic ferroptosis, reducing red pulp macrophages and exacerbating high-altitude polycythemia by impairing erythrophagocytosis and increasing red blood cell retention.

    Continuous endosomes form functional subdomains and orchestrate rapid membrane trafficking in trypanosomes

    Fabian Link, Alyssa Borges ... Markus Engstler
    The endosomal apparatus of African trypanosomes consists a continuous membrane system with functional subdomains rather than distinct compartments for early, late, and recycling endosomes.

    Early recovery of proteasome activity in cells pulse-treated with proteasome inhibitors is independent of DDI2

    Ibtisam Ibtisam, Alexei F Kisselev
    Genetic and biochemical approaches reveal that mammalian cells possess a novel DDI2 and transcription-independent pathway for the rapid recovery of proteasome activity after clinically relevant pulse treatment with proteasome inhibitors.
