    Autophagy linked FYVE (Alfy/WDFY3) is required for establishing neuronal connectivity in the mammalian brain

    Joanna M Dragich et al.
    Loss of function of the selective autophagy adaptor protein Alfy/Wdfy3 leads to profound wiring defects from the forebrain through to the spinal cord, highlighting the growing importance for macroautophagy in the developing brain.

    A lipid bound actin meshwork organizes liquid phase separation in model membranes

    Alf Honigmann et al.
    A combination of imaging experiments and computer simulations on a model lipid membrane integrate the 'picket fence' and 'raft' models, and suggest that the interplay between actin binding, lipid phase separation and curvature compartmentalize the membrane.

    Structural model for differential cap maturation at growing microtubule ends

    Juan Estévez-Gallego et al.
    The tubulin GTPase cycle structurally modulates the microtubule cap, causing lattice expansion, which is an intermediate state involved in phosphate release and regulatory signaling.

    Structural insights into the mechanism of the DEAH-box RNA helicase Prp43

    Marcel J Tauchert et al.
    The structural and functional analysis of the ATP-dependent RNA helicase Prp43 provides insights into the mechanisms of RNA binding and translocation, which could serve as paradigm for all DEAH-box proteins.

    Diverse stimuli engage different neutrophil extracellular trap pathways

    Elaine F Kenny et al.
    NETs induction, a central component of the innate immune response, utilises assorted signalling pathways as demonstrated through the analysis of healthy and patient neutrophils treated with five distinct stimuli.

    Histone supply regulates S phase timing and cell cycle progression

    Ufuk Günesdogan et al.
    Controlling cell cycle progression in a developing embryo directly depends on de novo histone supply and a specialized surveillance mechanism for nucleosome assembly.

    In vivo super-resolution RESOLFT microscopy of Drosophila melanogaster

    Sebastian Schnorrenberg et al.
    Building on previous work (Grotjohann et al., 2012), low-light super-resolution microscopy has been performed on living transgenic Drosophila larvae and tissues.

    Comprehension of computer code relies primarily on domain-general executive brain regions

    Anna A Ivanova et al.
    The domain-general executive brain regions support the use of a novel cognitive tool even when it is structurally similar to natural language.

    A single K+-binding site in the crystal structure of the gastric proton pump

    Kenta Yamamoto et al.
    Crystal structures provide structural rationales for the transport stoichiometry of the gastric proton pump, which suffices the energy requirement for the generation of a million-fold proton gradient across the membrane.

    Structural basis of cooperativity in kinesin revealed by 3D reconstruction of a two-head-bound state on microtubules

    Daifei Liu et al.
    A novel algorithm is used to solve the first 3D reconstruction of a stepping kinesin dimer on microtubules, directly visualizing the conformational effects of inter-head strain and giving novel insights into the motility mechanism.
