Membrane and protein trafficking
Guest edited by Julian Carosi and Massimo Micaroni
Prg4-positive cells derived from iPSCs
Satake et al. provide a protocol to differentiate iPSCs into lubricin-expressing cells and demonstrate their potential use a therapy for arthritis and synovitis in an animal model.
Assessing biological activity of mutated STAT3
Behrendsen et al. assess the biological activity the missense mutation D427H in the oncogenic transcription factor STAT3 and find that the mutated protein does not appear to have oncogenic potential beyond the WT transcription factor.
Chromatin structure in cancer
In this new Review Wang et al. describe recent insights into altered genome architecture in human cancer, highlighting multiple pathways that disrupt chromatin structure and contribute to tumorgenesis.
SUMOylation of PDGF receptor α affects signaling via PLCγ and STAT3, and cell proliferation
Myogenic differentiation of human myoblasts and Mesenchymal stromal cells under GDF11 on Poly-ɛ-caprolactone-collagen I-Polyethylene-nanofibers
Computational analysis of missense variant CYP4F2*3 (V433M) in association with human CYP4F2 dysfunction: a functional and structural impact

Aims and scope
BMC Molecular and Cell Biology, formerly known as BMC Cell Biology, is an open access journal that considers articles on all aspects of cellular and molecular biology in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. The journal considers studies on functional cell biology, molecular mechanisms of transcription and translation, biochemistry, as well as research using both the experimental and theoretical aspects of physics to study biological processes and investigations into the structure of biological macromolecules.
We are recruiting!
We are currently looking for new Editorial Board Members to join our team of academic editors, assessing manuscripts in the field of molecular and cell biology.
Understanding the impact of climate change and exploring potential solutions to this global threat is more important than ever. Here we share recent highlights from the BMC Series journals.
