    ParB spreading on DNA requires cytidine triphosphate in vitro

    Adam SB Jalal et al.
    A biochemical reconstitution shows that the accumulation of Caulobacter crescentus ParB on DNA requires cytidine triphosphate and a closed DNA substrate in vitro.

    Integrated analysis of H2A.Z isoforms function reveals a complex interplay in gene regulation

    Assala Lamaa et al.
    The two H2A.Z isoforms have specific interactors which mediate their differential effects on gene expression.

    Translational initiation in E. coli occurs at the correct sites genome-wide in the absence of mRNA-rRNA base-pairing

    Kazuki Saito et al.
    E. coli ribosomes incapable of base-pairing with the Shine-Dalgarno sequence are still selective for annotated start sites, indicating these sites are hard-wired for initiation by other mRNA features.

    Loss of Kat2a enhances transcriptional noise and depletes acute myeloid leukemia stem-like cells

    Ana Filipa Domingues et al.
    Histone acetyl-transferase Kat2a preserves leukemia stem cells through frequent transcriptional firing of metabolic and regulatory gene promoters and maintenance of a largely invariant self-renewal program.

    Structural basis for COMPASS recognition of an H2B-ubiquitinated nucleosome

    Evan J Worden et al.
    The structure of the COMPASS methyltransferase bound to an H2B-ubiquitinated nucleosome provides insights into mechanisms of trans-histone cross-talk and the dynamic role of H2B ubiquitination in stimulating histone methylation.

    Cdc7 activates replication checkpoint by phosphorylating the Chk1-binding domain of Claspin in human cells

    Chi-Chun Yang et al.
    Cdc7 and CK1g1 independently and additively phosphorylate the Chk1-binding domain of claspin to activate replication checkpoint with differential contribution of each kinase in different cell types.

    TRF1 averts chromatin remodelling, recombination and replication dependent-break induced replication at mouse telomeres

    Rosa Maria Porreca et al.
    TRF1 suppresses replication fork stalling, which triggers break induced replication at telomeres associated with DNA damage response, alteration in the telomere chromatin environment, and re-localisation of telomeres to PML bodies.

    Repressive H3K9me2 protects lifespan against the transgenerational burden of COMPASS activity in C. elegans

    Teresa Wei-sy Lee et al.
    The transgenerational inheritance of lifespan is facilitated by the accumulation of repressive chromatin across generations.
