    Nanoscale protein architecture of the kidney glomerular basement membrane

    Hani Suleiman et al.
    High-resolution optical microscopy is used to reveal the organization of extracellular matrix proteins within the basement membrane of the blood filtration barrier in the kidney at the nanometer scale.

    Collagen IV and basement membrane at the evolutionary dawn of metazoan tissues

    Aaron L Fidler et al.
    Collagen IV is a primordial extracellular matrix component associated with the transition to animal multicellularity, and enabled the formation and evolution of epithelial tissues.

    Boundary cells restrict dystroglycan trafficking to control basement membrane sliding during tissue remodeling

    Shelly TH McClatchey et al.
    A Notch-mediated signaling pathway upregulates a Sec14-GOLD phosphopholipid binding protein that promotes a morphogenetic process important in tissue remodeling and renewal.

    Organ sculpting by patterned extracellular matrix stiffness

    Justin Crest et al.
    Direct measurement of finely patterned mechanical properties in a native basement membrane demonstrate how force asymmetries arising from this extracellular matrix, rather than from cells, can precisely sculpt a tissue.

    Eater cooperates with Multiplexin to drive the formation of hematopoietic compartments

    Gábor Csordás et al.
    The mutual interaction between the basement membrane protein Multiplexin and the phagocytosis receptor Eater expressed by the immune cells drives the formation and maintenance of the hematopoietic tissues in Drosophila.

    A muscle-epidermis-glia signaling axis sustains synaptic specificity during allometric growth in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Jiale Fan et al.
    The work uncovers a muscle-epidermis-glia signaling axis, modulated by protease mig-17 and the basement membrane, that regulates synaptic allometry during growth in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Plasma membrane overgrowth causes fibrotic collagen accumulation and immune activation in Drosophila adipocytes

    Yiran Zang et al.
    Excess membrane can trap outgoing extracellular matrix proteins in secreting cells, leading to pericellular deposits that cause tissue damage.

    Type XVII collagen coordinates proliferation in the interfollicular epidermis

    Mika Watanabe et al.
    Type XVII collagen, a transmembranous protein in basal keratinocytes, suppresses interfollicular epidermal proliferation in neonatal and aged skin, and helps rejuvenate epidermis.

    Hippocampal neural stem cells facilitate access from circulation via apical cytoplasmic processes

    Tamar Licht et al.
    Neural stem cells in the dentate gyrus have unique cytoplasmic processes that promote privileged access to circulating factors by a unique contact point with an endothelial cell.
