    The human origin recognition complex is essential for pre-RC assembly, mitosis, and maintenance of nuclear structure

    Hsiang-Chen Chou et al.
    The initiation of human genome replication requires the six-subunit origin recognition complex (ORC) and CDC6, with ORC playing additional roles during mitosis and in organization of the cell nucleus.

    Surprising phenotypic diversity of cancer-associated mutations of Gly 34 in the histone H3 tail

    Brandon R Lowe et al.
    H3-G34R, V, and W oncohistonesin fission yeast cause differential K36 modification, DNA damage sensitivity and genome stability outcomes, highlighting the need for a thorough evaluation of distinct mutations.

    Kinetic sculpting of the seven stripes of the Drosophila even-skipped gene

    Augusto Berrocal et al.
    Live quantitative monitoring of transcriptional bursting reveals that enhancers responding to different regulators use the same kinetic strategy to produce a complex composite pattern of developmental expression.

    Global, cell non-autonomous gene regulation drives individual lifespan among isogenic C. elegans

    Holly E Kinser et al.
    Expression of almost half of a library of fluorescent reporters distinguish long- from short-lived individual Caenorhabditis elegans, suggesting that organism-wide differences in gene expression drive future lifespan.

    Dimerisation of the PICTS complex via LC8/Cut-up drives co-transcriptional transposon silencing in Drosophila

    Evelyn L Eastwood et al.
    Heterochromatin formation at transposon loci depends on dimerisation of the effector complex that elicits co-transcriptional silencing and this requirement is fulfilled by co-option of the conserved dimerisation hub protein, Cut-up/LC8.

    Cytoplasmic chromatin fragments—from mechanisms to therapeutic potential

    Karl N Miller et al.
    Cytoplasmic chromatin fragment formation pathways in senescent cells are a potential therapeutic target for modulation of inflammation in aging, which contributes to age-associated diseases.

    Aging, Geroscience and Longevity: A Special Issue

    Edited by Matt Kaeberlein et al.
    eLife is pleased to present a Special Issue to highlight recent advances in the mechanistic understanding of aging and interventions that extend longevity.

    A transcriptomic taxonomy of Drosophila circadian neurons around the clock

    Dingbang Ma et al.
    Drosophila clock neurons manifest remarkable heterogeneity, which might be generally true and help explain why Drosophila has a sophisticated behavioral repertoire despite a tiny brain of about 100,000 neurons.

    Mutations in SKI in Shprintzen–Goldberg syndrome lead to attenuated TGF-β responses through SKI stabilization

    Ilaria Gori et al.
    The mechanism underlying Shprintzen–Goldberg syndrome is solved and reveals that missense mutations in the transcriptional repressor SKI abolish ligand-induced SKI degradation, which results in attenuation of TGF-β transcriptional responses.
