Tiny but Mighty Cas Proteins Discovered

A megaphage (left), a member of a bacteriophage family Biggiephage, injects its DNA -- including genes for CasΦ (red) -- into bacterial cells to turn the bacteria against the phage's competitor (top). The reddish Pac-Man-like figures are CasΦ proteins, enzymes that cut up viral DNA. The genome of the bacterium is shown in purple.

Researchers have shown the fundamental role of the heterochromatin protein 1a (HP1a) in the reorganization of the 3D chromatin structure after fertilization. By combining powerful Drosophila genetics with 3D genome modeling, they discovered that HP1a is required to establish a proper chromatin 3D structure at multiple hierarchical levels during early embryonic development.
