CRISPR-suppressor scanning reveals a nonenzymatic role of LSD1 in AML

CRISPR-suppressor scanning reveals a nonenzymatic role of LSD1 in AML, Published online: 15 April 2019; doi:10.1038/s41589-019-0263-0

A CRISPR–Cas9 screening-based structure–activity relationship profiling method reveals that LSD1 inhibitors suppress acute myeloid leukemia by disruption of the interaction between LSD1 and GFI1B instead of the enzyme activity of LSD1.

Chemogenetics defines receptor-mediated functions of short chain free fatty acids

Chemogenetics defines receptor-mediated functions of short chain free fatty acids, Published online: 15 April 2019; doi:10.1038/s41589-019-0270-1

A chemogenomic approach to explore activity of the free fatty acid receptor FFA2 independently of the related FFA3 shows that FFA2 in differentiated adipocytes and colonic crypt cells in mice is responsible for regulated lipolysis and GLP-1 release.

Bromodomain inhibition of the coactivators CBP/EP300 facilitate cellular reprogramming, Published online: 08 April 2019; doi:10.1038/s41589-019-0264-z

A chromatin-focused chemical screen identified CBP/EP300 bromodomain inhibitors as enhancers of reprogramming. These inhibitors decrease histone H3 lysine 27 acetylation, chromatin accessibility and expression of somatic-specific genes.

Structure of McsB, a protein kinase for regulated arginine phosphorylation

Structure of McsB, a protein kinase for regulated arginine phosphorylation, Published online: 08 April 2019; doi:10.1038/s41589-019-0265-y

Structural and biochemical characterization of arginine kinase McsB reveals how its phosphagen kinase–like catalytic domain is adapted to target protein substrates while its phosphoarginine-binding domain allosterically controls kinase activity.

ARGuing for a new kinase class

ARGuing for a new kinase class, Published online: 08 April 2019; doi:10.1038/s41589-019-0272-z

Arginine protein kinases regulate bacterial signaling cascades through phosphorylation of key arginine residues. Crystal structures of the kinase McsB provide the first glimpse of how these unusual enzymes recognize their protein substrates and are allosterically regulated.
