Help or punishment: acute stress moderates basal testosterone's association with prosocial behavior

Huagen Wang, Zhen Zhen, Ruida Zhu, Bohai Yu, Shaozheng Qin & Chao Liu
The gonadal hormone testosterone is well-recognized to facilitate various behaviors for obtaining social status. A good reputation (i.e. competitive, generous, and trustworthy) is of crucial importance for acquiring high social status. It is unclear which type of reputation is preferred by individuals under the influence of testosterone. Given that the recent dual-hormone hypothesis emphasizes the modulating effect of stress (cortisol) on the influence of testosterone, it would be intriguing to test the role of stress-induced...

Acetylation of SCFD1 regulates SNARE complex formation and autophagosome-lysosome fusion

Hong Huang, Qinqin Ouyang, Kunrong Mei, Ting Liu, Qiming Sun, Wei Liu & Rong Liu
SCFD1 (sec1 family domain containing 1) was recently shown to function in autophagosome-lysosome fusion, and multiple studies have demonstrated the regulatory impacts of acetylation (a post-translational modification) on macroautophagy/autophagy. Here, we demonstrate that both acetylation- and phosphorylation-dependent mechanisms control SCFD1ʹs function in autophagosome-lysosome fusion. After detecting a decrease in the extent of SCFD1 acetylation under autophagy-stimulated conditions, we found that KAT2B/PCAF catalyzes the acetylation of residues K126 and K515 of SCFD1; we also showed that...
