Shaoyu ZHANG, Jiaqi Tang, Yunfeng Li, Dong Li, Guo Chen, Lin Chen, Zhen Yang & Ningjia he
Gustatory systems in phytophagous insects are used to perceive feeding stimulants and deterrents and are involved in insect decisions to feed on particular plants. During the process, gustatory receptors (Gr) can recognize diverse phytochemicals and provide a molecular basis for taste perception. The silkworm, as a representative Lepidoptera species, has developed a strong feeding preference for mulberry leaves. The mulberry-derived flavonoid glycoside, isoquercetin, is required to induce feeding behaviours. However, the corresponding Gr for isoquercetin...

Tilman L. B. Hölting, Florencia Cidre-Aranaz, Dana Matzek, Bastian Popper, Severin J. Jacobi, Cornelius M. Funk, Florian H. Geyer, Jing Li, Ignazio Piseddu, Bruno L. Cadilha, Stephan Ledderose, Jennifer Zwilling, Shunya Ohmura, David Anz, Annette Künkele, Frederick Klauschen, Thomas G. P. Grünewald & Maximilian M. L. Knott
Abstract Chimeric fusion transcription factors are oncogenic hallmarks of several devastating cancer entities including pediatric sarcomas, such as Ewing sarcoma (EwS) and alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS). Despite their exquisite specificity, these driver oncogenes have been considered largely undruggable due to their lack of enzymatic activity. Here, we show in the EwS model that – capitalizing on neomorphic DNA-binding preferences – the addiction to the respective fusion transcription factor EWSR1-FLI1 can be leveraged to express therapeutic genes....
