    Atg1 kinase in fission yeast is activated by Atg11-mediated dimerization and cis-autophosphorylation

    Zhao-Qian Pan et al.
    A mechanistic dissection of how autophagy kinase Atg1 is activated in fission yeast reveals surprising differences from the known Atg1 activation mechanisms previously defined in budding yeast.

    Stress-activated MAPK signaling controls fission yeast actomyosin ring integrity by modulating formin For3 levels

    Elisa Gómez-Gil et al.
    Microscopic and biochemical analysis show that the stress-activated MAP kinase pathway targets the formin For3 to modulate actomyosin ring integrity in response to environmental cues.

    Neurofascin and Kv7.3 are delivered to somatic and axon terminal surface membranes en route to the axon initial segment

    Aniket Ghosh et al.
    Neuronal neurofascin takes a surprisingly circuitous route in the neuronal plasma membrane to the axon initial segment where it stabilises ion channel complexes responsible for initiating action potentials.

    Soluble collectin-12 mediates C3-independent docking of properdin that activates the alternative pathway of complement

    Jie Zhang et al.
    A systematic set of experiments reveals how properdin specifically directs AP activation independently of primary C3 deposition additionally as an alternative convertase stabilizer, thus revising immune machinery of complement activation.

    Genome duplication in Leishmania major relies on persistent subtelomeric DNA replication

    Jeziel Dener Damasceno et al.
    Duplication of Leishmania chromosomes combines S-phase DNA replication initiated at a single internal region with subtelomeric DNA replication detectable outside S-phase, potentially explaining genome plasticity in this important parasite.

    Stoichiometric interactions explain spindle dynamics and scaling across 100 million years of nematode evolution

    Reza Farhadifar et al.
    Stoichiometric interactions between microtubules and cortical force-generators set spindle size, position and dynamics, and its scaling with cell size in nematode species.
