    CatSperζ regulates the structural continuity of sperm Ca2+ signaling domains and is required for normal fertility

    Jean-Ju Chung et al.
    A new component, CatSper zeta, is required for continuous alignment of the calcium channel along the sperm's tail and is crucial for normal sperm swimming behavior and fertility.

    Environmentally-induced epigenetic conversion of a piRNA cluster

    Karine Casier et al.
    Activation of a piRNA cluster is achieved by high temperature and without maternal inheritance of homologous piRNAs highlighting how variations of species natural habitat can become heritable and shape epigenome.

    3D in situ imaging of the female reproductive tract reveals molecular signatures of fertilizing spermatozoa in mice

    Lukas Ded et al.
    Fertilizing mouse spermatozoa, characterized by intact CatSper channels, lack of protein tyrosine phosphorylation, and reacted acrosomes, in the female reproductive tract provide molecular insight into sperm selection for successful fertilization.

    A microscopy-based kinetic analysis of yeast vacuolar protein sorting

    Jason C Casler, Benjamin S Glick
    In yeast, a fluorescent vacuolar cargo departs from Golgi cisternae early in the TGN stage of maturation, and traffic from prevacuolar endosomes to the vacuole apparently involves a kiss-and-run mechanism.

    PROP1 triggers epithelial-mesenchymal transition-like process in pituitary stem cells

    María Inés Pérez Millán et al.
    The transcription factor PROP1 controls a genetic network that drives pituitary stem cells to undergo an epithelial-to-mesenchymal-like transition and differentiate.

    Scaffold nucleoporins Nup188 and Nup192 share structural and functional properties with nuclear transport receptors

    Kasper R Andersen et al.
    Components of the nuclear pore complex share structural and functional features with soluble nuclear transport receptors, which suggests that there may be an evolutionary relationship between these two types of protein.

    Phosphorylation of β-arrestin2 at Thr383 by MEK underlies β-arrestin-dependent activation of Erk1/2 by GPCRs

    Elisabeth Cassier et al.
    Phosphoproteomics identifies β-arrestin 2 phosphorylation at Thr383 by MEK as a key step of GPCR-induced Erk½ activation, thus providing new insight into the molecular mechanism underlying β-arrestin-dependent GPCR-operated signaling.

    Epigenetic memory independent of symmetric histone inheritance

    Daniel S Saxton, Jasper Rine
    Reduced fidelity of histone inheritance has minimal effects on inheritance of epigenetic states of heterochromatin in Saccharomyces..

    An extracellular biochemical screen reveals that FLRTs and Unc5s mediate neuronal subtype recognition in the retina

    Jasper J Visser et al.
    An integrated approach for studying laminar organization in the developing mouse retina identifies two families of extracellular recognition proteins that mediate neuronal subtype-specific recognition.

    A large effective population size for established within-host influenza virus infection

    Casper K Lumby et al.
    Once an influenza infection is established, selection acts efficiently in favouring fitter viral genotypes, its effects being limited only by the short length of a typical infection.
