- Androgen receptor inhibitor–induced “BRCAness” and PARP inhibition are synthetically lethal for castration-resistant prostate cancer
Androgen receptor inhibition induces a “BRCAness” state that may be exploited with PARP inhibitors in patients with advanced prostate cancer.
- Key determinants of selective binding and activation by the monocyte chemoattractant proteins at the chemokine receptor CCR2
Structure-function analysis of chemokines and their shared receptor may aid in the development of small-molecule inhibitors.
- A cryo-EM–based model of phosphorylation- and FKBP12.6-mediated allosterism of the cardiac ryanodine receptor
Conformational rigidity of the cardiac intracellular Ca2+ channel RyR2 may be enhanced by FKBP12.6 binding and reduced by phosphorylation.
This week’s articles identify a repulsive guidance system that controls the recruitment of T cells to germinal centers; a mechanism for controlling the transfer of nutrients from the placenta to early mouse embryos; and the subcellular location of calcium dynamics in astrocytes.
This week’s articles describe new treatments for heart failure and its associated symptoms and a sequential gene delivery system to regenerate fractured bone.
This week’s articles highlight plant growth responses to nutrients; axonal pathfinding; an unexpected source of tumor niche cells; photosensation in the fly brain; the selectivity of GPCRs for specific G proteins; balancing mTORC signaling; and a connection between gut microbes and brain vasculature malformations.
