In response to calcium mitochondria can undergo a permeability transition—a sudden increase of the permeability of the inner mitochondrial membrane to ions and solutes resulting in cell death. Salvatore Nesci discusses recent advances in the identification of the structure that forms the mitochondria permeability transition pore.

Genomewide association studies that describe genetic variation linked to educational and professional success are heralded as a future basis for personalized learning. Such portents are misleading as these studies do not take more complex social factors into account.

Genetic and biochemical assays reveal a role of Cul4‐Ddb1 (yeast Rtt101‐Mms1) ubiquitin ligases in promoting Eco1‐catalyzed Smc3 acetylation and thus sister chromatid cohesion establishment during S phase, which is critical for maintaining chromosome stability.

Tetanus toxin is a deadly neurotoxin targeting the central nervous system. The structure of the holotoxin reveals pH‐mediated domain rearrangements important for sorting, stability, receptor‐interactions and the response to the environments encountered during intoxication.

The oncogenic lncRNA MALAT1 controls alternative splicing by modulating the distribution of splicing factors. This study describes a MALAT1‐containing ribonucleoprotein complex, which promotes the expression of pro‐angiogenic VEGFA isoforms in breast cancer.

Internalization of SAA1 protein via clathrin‐dependent endocytosis leads to formation of intercellular aggregates and cellular toxicity. The aggregates are released into the extracellular space where they initiate the growth of an amyloid deposit.

The plant membrane receptor kinase BAM3 acts as receptor for the CLE45 peptide ligand independent of SERK family co‐receptor kinases. Moreover, different CLE peptides suppress root growth via inhibition of protophloem development, a process that depends on the pseudokinase CRN.

The MICU1–MICU2 heterodimer binds Ca2+ cooperatively with high affinity, which sets a sharp threshold for the uniporter, and allows direct response to cytosolic Ca2+ signals. Interaction with cardiolipin facilitates tethering of MICU1–MICU2 to the inner membrane.

Replication stress in telomeric DNA is resolved by a “looping‐out” mechanism, in which Topo II excises the stalled fork from the genome, NHEJ cyclizes cut DNA into t‐circle‐tail structures, and broken telomeric DNA is re‐ligated.

DAI/ZBP1‐mediated necroptosis triggered by cytomegalovirus infection requires nascent transcription mediated by the viral transactivator IE3. The Z‐RNA binding domain of DAI is critical for this, suggesting that DAI acts as an RNA sensor of DNA virus infection.

Cooperative coactivator activity of G9a and GLP with glucocorticoid receptor and HP1γ is regulated by adjacent methylation and phosphorylation on G9a and GLP, which control binding to HP1γ. G9a, GLP and HP1γ are required for glucocorticoid activation of genes that inhibit cell migration.

Ciliary resorption is causally linked to the G1‐S transition during the cell cycle. This study shows that Tctex‐1 phosphorylated at Thr94 triggers actin polymerization and periciliary endocytosis required for the initial phase of ciliary resorption.
