    Antiviral function and viral antagonism of the rapidly evolving dynein activating adaptor NINL

    Donté Alexander Stevens, Christopher Beierschmitt ... Matthew D Daugherty
    Evolution-guided functional analyses identify an activating adaptor of the dynein intracellular transportation machinery, NINL, as a novel component of the antiviral immune response and reveal a mechanism by which viruses antagonize NINL function in a species-specific manner.

    CD169+ macrophages orchestrate plasmacytoid dendritic cell arrest and retention for optimal priming in the bone marrow of malaria-infected mice

    Jamie Moore-Fried, Mahinder Paul ... Gregoire Lauvau
    CD169+ macrophages in the bone marrow of malaria-infected mice uptake infected red blood cells, and establish a functional interaction that is required to activate plasmacytoid dendritic cells to secrete type I interferon and leave the bone marrow.

    Convergence of two global regulators to coordinate expression of essential virulence determinants of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Hina Khan, Partha Paul ... Dibyendu Sarkar
    The two global regulators CRP and PhoP interact with each other to coordinate expression of essential virulence determinants of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

    Mobilome-driven segregation of the resistome in biological wastewater treatment

    Laura de Nies, Susheel Bhanu Busi ... Paul Wilmes
    Biological wastewater treatment plants are critical reservoirs of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), allowing for early detection and monitoring of resistant pathogens, whilst serving as models for understanding the segregation of mobile genetic elements through AMR.

    Antibacterial T6SS effectors with a VRR-Nuc domain are structure-specific nucleases

    Julia Takuno Hespanhol, Daniel Enrique Sanchez-Limache ... Ethel Bayer-Santos
    Salmonella antibacterial effectors act on Y-shaped DNA substrates resembling replication forks or transcription bubbles and lead to DNA double-strand breaks.
