  • Human symptoms–disease network
    • Authors: XueZhong Zhou, Jörg Menche, Albert-László Barabási, Amitabh Sharma
      Abstract: Unravelling the relationships between disease symptoms and underlying molecular origins is an important task in biomedical research. Here, Zhou et al. link diseases via their symptom overlap, and show that similar phenotypes are mirrored in networks that connect diseases with common genes or protein interactions.

  • Systemic regulation of mammalian ageing and longevity by brain sirtuins
    • Authors: Akiko Satoh, Shin-ichiro Imai
      Abstract: Sirtuins have been implicated in the ageing process in a variety of organisms, but their role in mammalian ageing remains somewhat controversial. Here the authors discuss sirtuin proteins in the brain, providing an overview of their physiological functions as well as their implication in mammalian ageing.

  • Facile scission of isonitrile carbon–nitrogen triple bond using a
           diborane(4) reagent
    • Authors: Hiroki Asakawa, Ka-Ho Lee, Zhenyang Lin, Makoto Yamashita
      Abstract: The cleavage of triple bonds can be achieved through the use of transition metal catalysts; however, it is less well explored for metal-free systems. Here, the authors show complete cleavage of a carbon–nitrogen triple bond under mild conditions through the use of a diborane(4) reagent.

  • A mortise–tenon joint in the transmembrane domain modulates
           autotransporter assembly into bacterial outer membranes

      Abstract: Bacterial autotransporters are folded in a process that entraps segments of their N-terminal passenger domain. Here, Leyton et al . identify glycine-aromatic mortise and tenon motifs that mediate the passenger domain’s translocation to the bacterial cell surface, and show that the motifs are evolutionarily conserved.

      Abstract: Visual signals that help individuals recognize their own species are predicted to be distinct from those of closely related sympatric species, but evidence for this pattern is scarce. Here, Allen et al. show guenon faces are distinctive, specifically from those of other guenon species they encounter.

  • Differentiating moss from higher plants is critical in studying the carbon
           cycle of the boreal biome

Goulden, Liisa Kulmala, Anders Lindroth, Hank A. Margolis, Yojiro Matsuura, Eddy Moors, Michiel van der Molen, Takeshi Ohta, Kim Pilegaard, Andrej Varlagin, Timo Vesala
      Abstract: Satellite-derived indices used to estimate gross primary production and carbon cycling rarely differentiate between boreal mosses and vascular plants, despite differences in photosynthetic capacity. Here, the authors show that this may have led to an overestimation of the boreal carbon budget.

      Abstract: Migrating cancer cells are round or elongated, and it is thought that the differently shaped cells invade surrounding tissue using different mechanisms. Here, Orgaz et al . show that the round cells secrete matrix metalloproteinases, which allow them to degrade surrounding connective tissue more effectively than elongated cells.

      Abstract: Porous materials for gas separation are industrially important. Here, the authors show that the pores of an aromatic framework can be tuned by the incorporation of counter ions, and that this can direct the interaction with gas molecules of various sizes, allowing separation of complex gas mixtures.

      Abstract: Many age-related diseases are associated with chronic inflammation. Here Jurk et al . use a mouse model of chronic, low-grade inflammation to support a model by which such inflammation promotes a vicious cycle of oxidative stress, telomere dysfunction and cell senescence that accelerates the ageing process.

      Abstract: Inositol trisphosphate kinases (IP3Ks) and inositol hexakisphosphate kinases (IP6Ks) are involved in signalling by phosphorylating their specific targets. Here, Wang et al. report the crystal structure of a hybrid IP6K/IP3K enzyme, analyse the substrate orientations and propose an evolutionary trajectory for this kinase family.

    • Authors: Yong Lu, Mingjun Zhang, Siqing Wang, Bangxing Hong, Zhiqiang Wang, Haiyan Li, Yuhuan Zheng, Jing Yang, Richard E. Davis, Jianfei Qian, Jian Hou, Qing Yi
      Abstract: Dendritic cell-based approaches to induce antitumour immunity are promising, but have not shown encouraging results in clinical trials. Here the authors show that inhibition of p38 MAPK in dendritic cells increases expression of OX40L, boosting antitumour T-cell responses and dampening regulatory T-cell activity.
