Chemical synthesis and characterization of a new quinazolinedione competitive antagonist for strigolactone receptors with an unexpected binding mode
The histidine-rich loop in the extracellular domain of ZIP4 binds zinc and plays a role in zinc transport
AMP-activated protein kinase complexes containing the β2 regulatory subunit are up-regulated during and contribute to adipogenesis
Podocytes are terminally differentiated and highly specialized glomerular cells, which have an essential role as a filtration barrier against proteinuria. In this issue Guo and colleagues (pages 1741–1751) investigate the role of histone methylation in podocyte differentiation.
