    The phage L capsid decoration protein has a novel OB-fold and an unusual capsid binding strategy

    Rebecca L Newcomer et al.
    The structure of phage L's Dec demonstrates a new fold within this family of proteins, and shows modulation of capsid binding occurs through two sites, with site 1 being preferred.

    Glial Ca2+signaling links endocytosis to K+ buffering around neuronal somas to regulate excitability

    Shirley Weiss et al.
    An unbiased genetic screen in Drosophila provides evidence for a direct link between glial Ca2+ 25 signaling and classical functions of glia in buffering external K+ as a mechanism to regulate neuronal excitability.

    A universal vector concept for a direct genotyping of transgenic organisms and a systematic creation of homozygous lines

    Frederic Strobl et al.
    In transgenesis assays involving diploid model organisms, two clearly distinguishable transformation markers embedded in interweaved, but incompatible Lox site pairs allow the systematic creation of homozygous transgenic lines and minimize the number of wasted animals.

    Spatial correlations constrain cellular lifespan and pattern formation in corneal epithelium homeostasis

    Lior Strinkovsky et al.
    Rejuvenation of corneal epithelium in homeostasis is determined by the interplay between corneal cells replicative lifespan and the spatial correlation between cell replication and cell removal.

    Neurogenic decisions require a cell cycle independent function of the CDC25B phosphatase

    Frédéric Bonnet et al.
    The cell cycle phosphatase CDC25B controls cell cycle progression and neurogenesis through independent pathways.

    Cellular aspect ratio and cell division mechanics underlie the patterning of cell progeny in diverse mammalian epithelia

    Kara L McKinley et al.
    The process of cytokinesis can allow cell lineages to intermix in mammalian epithelia, and cellular aspect ratio is a critical modulator of this behavior.
