Symmetry Breaking of Tissue Mechanics in Wound Induced Hair Follicle Regeneration of Laboratory and Spiny Mice

Scientists demonstrated that tissue mechanics, or the stiffness of the wound bed, the ECM, and the stiffness of the cells also partook during wound-induced hair neogenesis; the hair primordia formation was not exclusive to molecular signaling events.

An RFC4/Notch1 Signaling Feedback Loop Promotes NSCLC Metastasis and Stemness

To understand how Notch signaling was overactivated to couple tumor metastasis and self-renewal in NSCLC cells, researchers showed that RFC4, directly bound to the Notch1 intracellular domain (NICD1) to competitively abrogate CDK8/FBXW7-mediated degradation of NICD1.

Removal of CD276+ Cells from Haploidentical Memory T-Cell Grafts Significantly Lowers the Risk of GVHD

Analysis of CD45RA-depleted haploidentical mixed lymphocytes culture revealed insufficient suppression of alloresponses in the CD4+ compartment and identified CD276 as a marker for alloreactive memory Th1 T cells.

DNMT3A Haploinsufficiency Causes Dichotomous DNA Methylation Defects at Enhancers in Mature Human Immune Cells

The authors demonstrated that DNMT3A haploinsufficiency impaired the gain of DNA methylation at decommissioned enhancers, while simultaneously and unexpectedly impairing DNA demethylation of newly activated enhancers in mature human myeloid cells.
