Patients with severe developmental delay, dysmorphism, and brain abnormalities were identified as having pathogenic mutations in EXOC2, a critical component of the exocyst complex involved in vesicle trafficking, which caused secretory vesicle transport defects in patient-derived cell lines.

The authors reveal a mechanism of SIgA–microbiota interaction in the adult human gut. They describe antibodies with a high capacity to bind phylogenetically distant members of the microbiota. Such cross-species reactivity does not correlate with antibody polyreactivity but crucially depends on somatic mutations.

LCN2 is an osteoblast-enriched secreted protein that regulates food intake. Here, the authors show that LCN2 is upregulated during obesity and diabetes as a protective mechanism to counteract obesity-induced glucose intolerance by decreasing food intake and promoting adaptive β-cell proliferation.

Uncovering mechanisms that drive pancreatic cancer could lead to effective therapies for this lethal disease. This study reveals how pancreatic cancer cells hyperactivate a pathway to sustain their proliferation. Inhibiting this pathway affects cancer cells, but not normal cells, highlighting a new therapeutic opportunity.

Delgado-Benito et al. identify the protein Pdap1 as a regulator of mature B cell homeostasis. Pdap1 protects mature B cells against chronic induction of the integrated stress response and promotes both their survival and antibody gene diversification by CSR and SHM.

Single-cell transcriptomic analysis of germinal center B cells identifies multiple linked populations, most of which represent cell of origin of lymphomas. The newly identified cell of origin of diffuse large B cell lymphoma informs on novel prognostic subgroups.

Staphylococcus aureus secretes pore-forming leukocidins that kill leukocytes as part of the bacterium’s evasion strategy. Leukocidin-based vaccination results in toxin-neutralizing antibodies and toxin-specific CD4 lymphocytes that block the toxins and boost host-mediated antimicrobial responses to protect mice from bloodstream infection.
