    Electron cryo-tomography provides insight into procentriole architecture and assembly mechanism

    Sam Li et al.
    A detailed description of the structure of procentriole MT triplet by cryoET, along with its associated non-tubulin proteins and its assembly intermediates, reveals possible molecular mechanism for the procentriole assembly.

    Charting the native architecture of Chlamydomonas thylakoid membranes with single-molecule precision

    Wojciech Wietrzynski et al.
    In situ cryo-electron tomography resolves individual photosynthetic complexes within native thylakoid membranes, revealing how thylakoid architecture sorts proteins into discrete membrane domains.

    Time-resolved serial femtosecond crystallography reveals early structural changes in channelrhodopsin

    Kazumasa Oda et al.
    Time-resolved serial femtosecond crystallography revealed retinal kink and early changes in channelrhodopsin, which leads to the ion pore formation.

    IFT trains in different stages of assembly queue at the ciliary base for consecutive release into the cilium

    Jenna L Wingfield et al.
    Multimegadalton intraflagellar transport (IFT) trains assemble by sequential recruitment of IFT subcomplexes from the cell body to the ciliary basal bodies and tubulin, the main IFT cargo, is loaded briefly before trains depart.

    Bardet–Biedl syndrome 3 protein promotes ciliary exit of the signaling protein phospholipase D via the BBSome

    Yan-Xia Liu et al.
    Bardet–Biedl syndrome 3 (BBS3) protein promotes phospholipase D to load onto the BBSome at the ciliary tip for moving out of the cilium via intraflagellar transport.

    Enhanced FIB-SEM systems for large-volume 3D imaging

    C Shan Xu et al.
    Complete neuronal circuits can be reconstructed, and whole eukaryotic cells imaged, at less than 10 nm isotropic resolution.

    TTC26/DYF13 is an intraflagellar transport protein required for transport of motility-related proteins into flagella

    Hiroaki Ishikawa et al.
    Loss of one protein from the intraflagellar transport complex leads to a defect in import of a specific sub-set of proteins into the flagellum.

    Metabolic co-dependence drives the evolutionarily ancient Hydra–Chlorella symbiosis

    Mayuko Hamada et al.
    The symbiotic relationship between Hydra and Chlorella is driven by metabolic co-dependence and characterized by changes in the photobiont genome in terms of lack of genes essential in free-living algae.
