  • Engineering a dirhodium artificial metalloenzyme for selective olefin
           cyclopropanation

    • Authors: Poonam Srivastava, Hao Yang, Ken Ellis-Guardiola, Jared C. Lewis
      Abstract: Artificial metalloenzymes (ArMs) have the potential to improve transition metal reactivity in complex media. Here, the authors link a dirhodium catalyst to a prolyl oligopeptidase to create an ArM that catalyzes enantioselective olefin cyclopropanation in aqueous solution.

  • Perinuclear tethers license telomeric DSBs for a broad kinesin- and
           NPC-dependent DNA repair process

    • Authors: Daniel K.C. Chung, Janet N.Y. Chan, Jonathan Strecker, Wei Zhang, Sasha Ebrahimi-Ardebili, Thomas Lu, Karan J. Abraham, Daniel Durocher, Karim Mekhail
      Abstract: Damaged DNA is often targeted to nuclear pore complexes for repair. Here, the authors show that kinesin-14 mediates this process ensuring error-prone repair, while perinuclear telomere attachment licenses damaged telomeric loci for this repair and kinesin-14 blocks senescence in the absence of telomerase.

  • Intrinsically disordered proteins drive membrane curvature

    • Authors: David J. Busch, Justin R. Houser, Carl C. Hayden, Michael B. Sherman, Eileen M. Lafer, Jeanne C. Stachowiak
      Abstract: Proteins that bend membranes often contain curvature-promoting structural motifs such as wedges or crescent-shaped domains. Busch et al. report that intrinsically disordered domains can also drive membrane curvature and provide evidence that steric pressure driven by protein crowding mediates this effect.

  • MEG3 long noncoding RNA regulates the TGF-β pathway genes through
           formation of RNA–DNA triplex structures

    • Authors: Tanmoy Mondal, Santhilal Subhash, Roshan Vaid, Stefan Enroth, Sireesha Uday, Björn Reinius, Sanhita Mitra, Arif Mohammed, Alva Rani James, Emily Hoberg, Aristidis Moustakas, Ulf Gyllensten, Steven J.M. Jones, Claes M Gustafsson, Andrew H Sims, Fredrik Westerlund, Eduardo Gorab, Chandrasekhar Kanduri
      Abstract: Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate gene expression by association with chromatin. Here, the authors show that lncRNA MEG3 regulates the TGF-β pathway by bridging the interactions between polycomb repressive complex 2 and the distal regulatory elements of the TGF-β pathway genes via formation of RNA–DNA triplexes.

  • Fgf and Esrrb integrate epigenetic and transcriptional networks that
           regulate self-renewal of trophoblast stem cells

    • Authors: Paulina A. Latos, Angela Goncalves, David Oxley, Hisham Mohammed, Ernest Turro, Myriam Hemberger
      Abstract: The transcription factor estrogen-related receptor beta, Esrrb, regulates pluripotency genes in embryonic stem cells, but how it acts in trophoblast stem (TS) cells is unclear. Here, the authors identify Esrrb as a primary target of Fgf/Mek signaling and outline a unique TS cell-specific interactome to sustain stemness.
