Starting the engine of the powerhouse: mitochondrial transcription and beyond
Image is not available

Mitochondria are the powerhouses of cells thanks to the oxidative phosphorylation system partially encoded by a small mitochondrial genome (mtDNA). Miranda et al review our current knowledge on mtDNA expression, associated disease phenotypes, and how mtDNA and nuclear gene expression are coordinated.

Structural convergence between inhibitors and a regulator of microtubule dynamics
Image is not available

A region of CPAP, a protein regulating the length of the centrioles, is found to have a tubulin binding mode similar to that of bacterial and fungal peptide-like metabolites which inhibit cell division.

Essential role of hyperacetylated microtubules in innate immunity escape orchestrated by the EBV-encoded BHRF1 protein
Image is not available

BHRF1, a multifunctional viral protein expressed during Epstein-Barr virus reactivation, modulates mitochondrial dynamics and induces MT hyperacetylation to escape innate immunity. Moreover, the loss of MT hyperacetylation impedes BHRF1 to initiate mitophagy, which is essential to inhibit the signaling pathway.
