    Evolution of a functionally intact but antigenically distinct DENV fusion loop

    Rita M Meganck, Deanna Zhu ... Longping V Tse
    Operating as a serum profiling tool for dengue infection and vaccination, the D2-FLM variant, which is insensitive to antibody-dependent enhancement-prone fusion loop antibodies, also offers potential for a safer dengue virus vaccine.

    Biosensor-integrated transposon mutagenesis reveals rv0158 as a coordinator of redox homeostasis in Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Somnath Shee, Reshma T Veetil ... Amit Singh
    Genome-scale integration of transposon mutagenesis with a redox biosensor identified a hypothetical transcription factor- Rv0158 required to calibrate the growth, cytoplasmic redox potential, and respiration of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in response to metabolic switching from glucose to fatty acids.
