During the development of mammalian cortex, late neurons generated by neuronal progenitors bypass earlier-born neurons and migrate to reach upper layers of cortical plate in an inner-to-outer fashion. Filamentous-actin (F-actin) can regulate neuronal migration, whereas Coactosin-like protein 1 (Cotl1) modulates...

The ubiquitin-proteasome pathway is essential for most cellular processes, including protein quality control, cell cycle, transcription, signaling, protein transport, DNA repair and stress responses. Hampered proteasome activity leads to the accumulation of polyubiquitylated proteins, endoplastic reticulum (ER) stress and even...

Cells require ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) activity for DNA replication. In bacteria, electrons can flow from NADPH to RNR by either a thioredoxin-reductase- or a glutathione-reductase-dependent route. Yeast and plants artificially lacking thioredoxin reductases exhibit a slow-growth phenotype, suggesting glutathione-reductase-dependent routes...

Insulin constitutes a principal evolutionarily conserved hormonal axis for maintaining glucose homeostasis; dysregulation of this axis causes diabetes. PGC-1α (peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivator-1α) links insulin signalling to the expression of glucose and lipid metabolic genes. The histone acetyltransferase GCN5 (general control...
