  •   Integrated multiomic characterization of congenital heart disease
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-22
    Matthew C. Hill, Zachary A. Kadow, Hali Long, Yuka Morikawa, Thomas J. Martin, Emma J. Birks, Kenneth S. Campbell, Jeanne Nerbonne, Kory Lavine, Lalita Wadhwa, Jun Wang, Diwakar Turaga, Iki Adachi, James F. Martin

    The heart, the first organ to develop, undergoes complex morphogenesis that when defective results in congenital heart disease (CHD). With current therapies, more than 90% of CHD patients survive into adulthood but often suffer premature death from heart failure (HF) and non-cardiac causes 1. To gain insight into poorly understood disease progression, we performed single nuclear RNA sequencing (snRNA-seq)

  •   Women are Credited Less in Science than are Men

    There is a well-documented gap in the observed number of scientific works produced by women and men in science, with clear consequences for the retention and promotion of women in science1. The gap might be a result of productivity differences2-5, or it might be due to women’s contributions not being acknowledged6,7. This paper finds that at least part of this gap is due to the latter: women in research

  •   Induction of mouse totipotent stem cells by a defined chemical cocktail
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-21
    Yanyan Hu, Yuanyuan Yang, Pengcheng Tan, Yuxia Zhang, Mengxia Han, Jiawei Yu, Xin Zhang, Zeran Jia, Dan Wang, Yinqing Li, Tianhua Ma, Kang Liu, Sheng Ding

    In mice, only the zygotes and blastomeres from 2-cell embryos are authentic totipotent stem cells (TotiSCs), capable of producing all the differentiated cells in both embryonic and extraembryonic tissues and forming an entire organism1. However, it remains challenging whether and how TotiSCs, representing the very beginning of a life, can be established in vitro in the absence of germline cells. Here

  •   BA.2.12.1, BA.4 and BA.5 escape antibodies elicited by Omicron infection
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-17

    SARS-CoV-2 Omicron sublineages BA.2.12.1, BA.4 and BA.5 exhibit higher transmissibility over BA.21. The new variants’ receptor binding and immune evasion capability require immediate investigation. Here, coupled with Spike structural comparisons, we show that BA.2.12.1 and BA.4/BA.5 exhibit comparable ACE2-binding affinities to BA.2. Importantly, BA.2.12.1 and BA.4/BA.5 display stronger neutralization

  •   Site-selective, stereocontrolled glycosylation of minimally protected sugars
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-16
    Qiuhan Li, Samuel M. Levi, Corin Wagen, Alison E. Wendlandt, Eric N. Jacobsen

    The identification of general and efficient methods for the construction of oligosaccharides stands as one of the great challenges for the field of synthetic chemistry1,2. Selective glycosylation of unprotected sugars and other polyhydroxylated nucleophiles is a particularly significant goal, requiring not only control over the stereochemistry of the forming bond but also differentiation between similarly

  •   Spatial profiling of early primate gastrulation in utero
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-16

    Gastrulation controls the emergence of cellular diversity and axis patterning in the early embryo. In mammals, this transformation is orchestrated by dynamic signalling centres at the interface of embryonic and extraembryonic tissues1–3. Elucidating the molecular framework of axis formation in vivo is fundamental for our understanding of human development4–6 and to advance stem-cell-based regenerative

  •   Evidence for unconventional superconductivity in twisted trilayer graphene
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15
    Hyunjin Kim, Youngjoon Choi, Cyprian Lewandowski, Alex Thomson, Yiran Zhang, Robert Polski, Kenji Watanabe, Takashi Taniguchi, Jason Alicea, Stevan Nadj-Perge

    Magic-angle twisted trilayer graphene (MATTG) has emerged as a moiré material that exhibits strong electronic correlations and unconventional superconductivity1,2. However, local spectroscopic studies of this system are still lacking. Here we perform high-resolution scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy of MATTG that reveal extensive regions of atomic reconstruction favouring mirror-symmetric

  •   The source of the Black Death in fourteenth-century central Eurasia

    The origin of the medieval Black Death pandemic (ad 1346–1353) has been a topic of continuous investigation because of the pandemic’s extensive demographic impact and long-lasting consequences1,2. Until now, the most debated archaeological evidence potentially associated with the pandemic’s initiation derives from cemeteries located near Lake Issyk-Kul of modern-day Kyrgyzstan1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. These

  •   Superconducting-qubit readout via low-backaction electro-optic transduction

    R. D. Delaney, M. D. Urmey, S. Mittal, B. M. Brubaker, J. M. Kindem, P. S. Burns, C. A. Regal, K. W. Lehnert

    Entangling microwave-frequency superconducting quantum processors through optical light at ambient temperature would enable means of secure communication and distributed quantum information processing1. However, transducing quantum signals between these disparate regimes of the electro-magnetic spectrum remains an outstanding goal2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and interfacing superconducting qubits, which are constrained

  •   Androgen receptor blockade promotes response to BRAF/MEK-targeted therapy

Amaria, Jeffrey J

    Treatment with therapy targeting BRAF and MEK (BRAF/MEK) has revolutionized care in melanoma and other cancers; however, therapeutic resistance is common and innovative treatment strategies are needed1,2. Here we studied a group of patients with melanoma who were treated with neoadjuvant BRAF/MEK-targeted therapy (NCT02231775, n = 51) and observed significantly higher rates of major pathological response

  •   Mechanism of replication origin melting nucleated by CMG helicase assembly
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15
    Jacob S. Lewis, Marta H. Gross, Joana Sousa, Sarah S. Henrikus, Julia F. Greiwe, Andrea Nans, John F. X. Diffley, Alessandro Costa

    The activation of eukaryotic origins of replication occurs in temporally separated steps to ensure that chromosomes are copied only once per cell cycle. First, the MCM helicase is loaded onto duplex DNA as an inactive double hexamer. Activation occurs after the recruitment of a set of firing factors that assemble two Cdc45–MCM–GINS (CMG) holo-helicases. CMG formation leads to the underwinding of DNA

  •   A pan-cancer compendium of chromosomal instability

    Chromosomal instability (CIN) results in the accumulation of large-scale losses, gains and rearrangements of DNA1. The broad genomic complexity caused by CIN is a hallmark of cancer2; however, there is no systematic framework to measure different types of CIN and their effect on clinical phenotypes pan-cancer. Here we evaluate the extent, diversity and origin of CIN across 7,880 tumours representing

  •   Deciphering the immunopeptidome in vivo reveals new tumour antigens

Winter, Ryan E. Kohn, Peter M. K. Westcott, Jason M. Schenkel, Sean-Luc Shanahan, Alex K. Shalek, Stefani Spranger, Forest M. White, Tyler Jacks

    Immunosurveillance of cancer requires the presentation of peptide antigens on major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) molecules1,2,3,4,5. Current approaches to profiling of MHC-I-associated peptides, collectively known as the immunopeptidome, are limited to in vitro investigation or bulk tumour lysates, which limits our understanding of cancer-specific patterns of antigen presentation in vivo6

  •   Peptidoglycan maturation controls outer membrane protein assembly
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15
    Gideon Mamou, Federico Corona, Ruth Cohen-Khait, Nicholas G. Housden, Vivian Yeung, Dawei Sun, Pooja Sridhar, Manuel Pazos, Timothy J. Knowles, Colin Kleanthous, Waldemar Vollmer

    Linkages between the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria and the peptidoglycan layer are crucial for the maintenance of cellular integrity and enable survival in challenging environments1,2,3,4,5. The function of the outer membrane is dependent on outer membrane proteins (OMPs), which are inserted into the membrane by the β-barrel assembly machine6,7 (BAM). Growing Escherichia coli cells segregate

    Galaxy protoclusters, which will eventually grow into the massive clusters we see in the local Universe, are usually traced by locating overdensities of galaxies1. Large spectroscopic surveys of distant galaxies now exist, but their sensitivity depends mainly on a galaxy’s star-formation activity and dust content rather than its mass. Tracers of massive protoclusters that do not rely on their galaxy

  •   Signatures of copy number alterations in human cancer
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15

Flanagan, Maxime Tarabichi, Peter Van Loo, Ludmil B. Alexandrov, Nischalan Pillay

    Gains and losses of DNA are prevalent in cancer and emerge as a consequence of inter-related processes of replication stress, mitotic errors, spindle multipolarity and breakage–fusion–bridge cycles, among others, which may lead to chromosomal instability and aneuploidy1,2. These copy number alterations contribute to cancer initiation, progression and therapeutic resistance3,4,5. Here we present a conceptual

  •   Caspase-7 activates ASM to repair gasdermin and perforin pores
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15
    Kengo Nozaki, Vivien I. Maltez, Manira Rayamajhi, Alan L. Tubbs, Joseph E. Mitchell, Carolyn A. Lacey, Carissa K. Harvest, Lupeng Li, William T. Nash, Heather N. Larson, Benjamin D. McGlaughon, Nathaniel J. Moorman, Michael G. Brown, Jason K. Whitmire, Edward A. Miao

    Among the caspases that cause regulated cell death, a unique function for caspase-7 has remained elusive. Caspase-3 performs apoptosis, whereas caspase-7 is typically considered an inefficient back-up. Caspase-1 activates gasdermin D pores to lyse the cell; however, caspase-1 also activates caspase-7 for unknown reasons1. Caspases can also trigger cell-type-specific death responses; for example, caspase-1

  •   Lifelong multilineage contribution by embryonic-born blood progenitors
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15
    Sachin H. Patel, Constantina Christodoulou, Caleb Weinreb, Qi Yu, Edroaldo Lummertz da Rocha, Brian J. Pepe-Mooney, Sarah Bowling, Li Li, Fernando G. Osorio, George Q. Daley, Fernando D. Camargo

    Haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) arise in the embryo from the arterial endothelium through a process known as the endothelial-to-haematopoietic transition (EHT)1,2,3,4. This process generates hundreds of blood progenitors, of which a fraction go on to become definitive HSCs. It is generally thought that most adult blood is derived from those HSCs, but to what extent other progenitors contribute to

    Lingxiang Hou, Xueping Cui, Bo Guan, Shaozhi Wang, Ruian Li, Yunqi Liu, Daoben Zhu, Jian Zheng

    Two-dimensional (2D) carbon materials, such as graphene, have attracted particular attention owing to the exceptional carrier transport characteristics that arise from the unique π-electron system in their conjugated carbon network structure1,2,3,4. To complement zero-bandgap graphene, material scientists have devoted considerable effort to identifying 2D carbon materials5,6,7,8. However, it is a challenge

  •   An exercise-inducible metabolite that suppresses feeding and obesity

Wallis, Koen van de Wetering, Andreas Stahl, Bente

    Exercise confers protection against obesity, type 2 diabetes and other cardiometabolic diseases1,2,3,4,5. However, the molecular and cellular mechanisms that mediate the metabolic benefits of physical activity remain unclear6. Here we show that exercise stimulates the production of N-lactoyl-phenylalanine (Lac-Phe), a blood-borne signalling metabolite that suppresses feeding and obesity. The biosynthesis

Bakker, Tineke van der Sluis, Wietske Pieters, Mengting Chen, René Wardenaar, Bert van der Vegt, Diana C. J. Spierings, Marco de Bruyn, Marcel A. T. M. van Vugt, Floris Foijer

    Chromosomal instability (CIN) drives cancer cell evolution, metastasis and therapy resistance, and is associated with poor prognosis1. CIN leads to micronuclei that release DNA into the cytoplasm after rupture, which triggers activation of inflammatory signalling mediated by cGAS and STING2,3. These two proteins are considered to be tumour suppressors as they promote apoptosis and immunosurveillance

  •   Measurement of the bound-electron g-factor difference in coupled ions
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-15
    Tim Sailer, Vincent Debierre, Zoltán Harman, Fabian Heiße, Charlotte König, Jonathan Morgner, Bingsheng Tu, Andrey V. Volotka, Christoph H. Keitel, Klaus Blaum, Sven Sturm

    Quantum electrodynamics (QED) is one of the most fundamental theories of physics and has been shown to be in excellent agreement with experimental results1,2,3,4,5. In particular, measurements of the electron’s magnetic moment (or g factor) of highly charged ions in Penning traps provide a stringent probe for QED, which allows testing of the standard model in the strongest electromagnetic fields6.

  •   Global Tonga tsunami explained by a fast-moving atmospheric source
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-13
    R. Omira, R. S. Ramalho, J. Kim, P. J. González, U. Kadri, J. M. Miranda, F. Carrilho, M. A. Baptista

    Volcanoes can produce tsunamis through earthquakes, caldera and flank collapses, pyroclastic flows, or underwater explosions1,2,3,4. These mechanisms rarely displace enough water to trigger transoceanic tsunamis. Violent volcanic explosions, however, can cause global tsunamis1,5 by triggering acoustic-gravity waves6,7,8 that excite the atmosphere-ocean interface. The colossal eruption of the Hunga

  •   Axial Higgs mode detected by quantum pathway interference in RTe3
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-08

    The observation of the Higgs boson solidified the standard model of particle physics. However, explanations of anomalies (for example, dark matter) rely on further symmetry breaking, calling for an undiscovered axial Higgs mode1. The Higgs mode was also seen in magnetic, superconducting and charge density wave (CDW) systems2,3. Uncovering the vector properties of a low-energy mode is challenging, and

  •   ATGL is a biosynthetic enzyme for fatty acid esters of hydroxy fatty acids
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-08
    Rucha Patel, Anna Santoro, Peter Hofer, Dan Tan, Monika Oberer, Andrew T. Nelson, Srihari Konduri, Dionicio Siegel, Rudolf Zechner, Alan Saghatelian, Barbara B. Kahn

    Branched fatty acid (FA) esters of hydroxy FAs (HFAs; FAHFAs) are recently discovered lipids that are conserved from yeast to mammals1,2. A subfamily, palmitic acid esters of hydroxy stearic acids (PAHSAs), are anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic1,3. Humans and mice with insulin resistance have lower PAHSA levels in subcutaneous adipose tissue and serum1. PAHSA administration improves glucose tolerance

    Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is the world’s most important non-cereal food crop, and the vast majority of commercially grown cultivars are highly heterozygous tetraploids. Advances in diploid hybrid breeding based on true seeds have the potential to revolutionize future potato breeding and production1,2,3,4. So far, relatively few studies have examined the genome evolution and diversity of wild and

    Missing heritability in genome-wide association studies defines a major problem in genetic analyses of complex biological traits1,2. The solution to this problem is to identify all causal genetic variants and to measure their individual contributions3,4. Here we report a graph pangenome of tomato constructed by precisely cataloguing more than 19 million variants from 838 genomes, including 32 new reference-level

Sun, Sofia Castelli, Sangya Agarwal, John Scholler, Decheng Song, Philipp C. Rommel, Enrico Radaelli, Regina M. Young, Warren J. Leonard, Antoni Ribas, Carl H. June, K. Christopher Garcia

    Synthetic receptor signalling has the potential to endow adoptively transferred T cells with new functions that overcome major barriers in the treatment of solid tumours, including the need for conditioning chemotherapy1,2. Here we designed chimeric receptors that have an orthogonal IL-2 receptor extracellular domain (ECD) fused with the intracellular domain (ICD) of receptors for common γ-chain (γc)

    Li- and Mn-rich (LMR) cathode materials that utilize both cation and anion redox can yield substantial increases in battery energy density1,2,3. However, although voltage decay issues cause continuous energy loss and impede commercialization, the prerequisite driving force for this phenomenon remains a mystery3,4,5,6 Here, with in situ nanoscale sensitive coherent X-ray diffraction imaging techniques

  •   Synonymous mutations in representative yeast genes are mostly strongly non-neutral
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-08
    Xukang Shen, Siliang Song, Chuan Li, Jianzhi Zhang

    Synonymous mutations in protein-coding genes do not alter protein sequences and are thus generally presumed to be neutral or nearly neutral1,2,3,4,5. Here, to experimentally verify this presumption, we constructed 8,341 yeast mutants each carrying a synonymous, nonsynonymous or nonsense mutation in one of 21 endogenous genes with diverse functions and expression levels and measured their fitness relative

  •   The renal lineage factor PAX8 controls oncogenic signalling in kidney cancer

Papachristou, David Baker, David Clarke, Stephenie Purvis, Ludovic Wesolowski, Anna Dyas, Leticia Castillon, Veronica Caraffini, Dóra Bihary, Cissy Yong, David J. Harrison, Grant D. Stewart, Mitchell J. Machiela, Mark P. Purdue, Stephen J. Chanock, Anne

    Large-scale human genetic data1,2,3 have shown that cancer mutations display strong tissue-selectivity, but how this selectivity arises remains unclear. Here, using experimental models, functional genomics and analyses of patient samples, we demonstrate that the lineage transcription factor paired box 8 (PAX8) is required for oncogenic signalling by two common genetic alterations that cause clear cell

  •   Mechanism of mitoribosomal small subunit biogenesis and preinitiation

    Mitoribosomes are essential for the synthesis and maintenance of bioenergetic proteins. Here we use cryo-electron microscopy to determine a series of the small mitoribosomal subunit (SSU) intermediates in complex with auxiliary factors, revealing a sequential assembly mechanism. The methyltransferase TFB1M binds to partially unfolded rRNA h45 that is promoted by RBFA, while the mRNA channel is blocked

  •   Pregnancy enables antibody protection against intracellular infection

Severance, Hilary Miller-Handley, Yuehong Wu, Giang Pham, Brian R. Wasik, Colin R. Parrish, Yueh-Chiang Hu, Joseph T. Y. Lau, Parastoo Azadi, Andrew B. Herr, Sing Sing Way

    Adaptive immune components are thought to exert non-overlapping roles in antimicrobial host defence, with antibodies targeting pathogens in the extracellular environment and T cells eliminating infection inside cells1,2. Reliance on antibodies for vertically transferred immunity from mothers to babies may explain neonatal susceptibility to intracellular infections3,4. Here we show that pregnancy-induced

    Bose–Einstein condensates (BECs) are macroscopic coherent matter waves that have revolutionized quantum science and atomic physics. They are important to quantum simulation1 and sensing2,3, for example, underlying atom interferometers in space4 and ambitious tests of Einstein’s equivalence principle5,6. A long-standing constraint for quantum gas devices has been the need to execute cooling stages time-sequentially

  •   Constraining neutron-star matter with microscopic and macroscopic collisions

    Interpreting high-energy, astrophysical phenomena, such as supernova explosions or neutron-star collisions, requires a robust understanding of matter at supranuclear densities. However, our knowledge about dense matter explored in the cores of neutron stars remains limited. Fortunately, dense matter is not probed only in astrophysical observations, but also in terrestrial heavy-ion collision experiments

  •   Nanoscale imaging of phonon dynamics by electron microscopy

    Spatially resolved vibrational mapping of nanostructures is indispensable to the development and understanding of thermal nanodevices1, modulation of thermal transport2 and novel nanostructured thermoelectric materials3,4,5. Through the engineering of complex structures, such as alloys, nanostructures and superlattice interfaces, one can significantly alter the propagation of phonons and suppress material

Zhang

    The dispersive sweep of fast radio bursts (FRBs) has been used to probe the ionized baryon content of the intergalactic medium1, which is assumed to dominate the total extragalactic dispersion. Although the host-galaxy contributions to the dispersion measure appear to be small for most FRBs2, in at least one case there is evidence for an extreme magneto-ionic local environment3,4 and a compact persistent

  •   Structural basis of GABA reuptake inhibition

    γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) transporter 1 (GAT1)1 regulates neuronal excitation of the central nervous system by clearing the synaptic cleft of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA upon its release from synaptic vesicles. Elevating the levels of GABA in the synaptic cleft, by inhibiting GABA reuptake transporters, is an established strategy to treat neurological disorders, such as epilepsy2. Here we

  •   Observation of Cooper pairs in a mesoscopic two-dimensional Fermi gas
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-08
    Marvin Holten, Luca Bayha, Keerthan Subramanian, Sandra Brandstetter, Carl Heintze, Philipp Lunt, Philipp M. Preiss, Selim Jochim

    The formation of strongly correlated fermion pairs is fundamental for the emergence of fermionic superfluidity and superconductivity1. For instance, Cooper pairs made of two electrons of opposite spin and momentum at the Fermi surface of the system are a key ingredient of Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer (BCS) theory—the microscopic explanation of the emergence of conventional superconductivity2. Understanding

  •   A preoptic neuronal population controls fever and appetite during sickness
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-08

    During infection, animals exhibit adaptive changes in physiology and behaviour aimed at increasing survival. Although many causes of infection exist, they trigger similar stereotyped symptoms such as fever, warmth-seeking, loss of appetite and fatigue1,2. Yet exactly how the nervous system alters body temperature and triggers sickness behaviours to coordinate responses to infection remains unknown

  •   Core control principles of the eukaryotic cell cycle
    Nature (IF 49.962) Pub Date : 2022-06-08
    Souradeep Basu, Jessica Greenwood, Andrew W. Jones, Paul Nurse

    Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) lie at the heart of eukaryotic cell cycle control, with different cyclin–CDK complexes initiating DNA replication (S-CDKs) and mitosis (M-CDKs)1,2. However, the principles on which cyclin–CDK complexes organize the temporal order of cell cycle events are contentious3. One model proposes that S-CDKs and M-CDKs are functionally specialized, with substantially different
