    A FRET sensor of C-terminal movement reveals VRAC activation by plasma membrane DAG signaling rather than ionic strength

    Benjamin König et al.
    VRAC activation, observed with a FRET sensor of intracellular LRRC8-domains movement during gating and by fluorometry, requires plasma membrane localization and diacylglycerol signaling, but is independent of intracellular ionic strength.

    Advances in X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) diffraction data processing applied to the crystal structure of the synaptotagmin-1 / SNARE complex

    Artem Y Lyubimov et al.
    Building on previous work (Uervirojnangkoorn et al., 2015), we demonstrate how improved methods for processing XFEL diffraction data enable the determination of structures from poorly diffracting crystals.

    Luciferase-LOV BRET enables versatile and specific transcriptional readout of cellular protein-protein interactions

    Christina K Kim et al.
    SPARK2 allows a transcriptional readout of inter- and intracellular protein-protein interactions, with near-zero background, by employing proximity-dependent luciferase-LOV regulation.

    BRET-based RAS biosensors that show a novel small molecule is an inhibitor of RAS-effector protein-protein interactions

    Nicolas Bery et al.
    A biosensor resource has been developed to monitor the intracellular interactions of RAS family proteins with effector molecules and the effects of inhibitors as an aid to drug development.

    Reconstitution of self-organizing protein gradients as spatial cues in cell-free systems

    Katja Zieske, Petra Schwille
    A minimal cell-like system with defined geometry has been used to investigate the establishment and spatial control of a protein gradient that positions the bacterial cell division machinery.

    The Ret receptor regulates sensory neuron dendrite growth and integrin mediated adhesion

    Peter Soba et al.
    A cell surface receptor called Ret enables neurons to establish and maintain the organized arrays of dendrites that support communication between neurons.

    Free circular introns with an unusual branchpoint in neuronal projections

    Harleen Saini et al.
    A systematic study of RNA localization unexpectedly finds a set of free circular introns with a non-canonical C branchpoint enriched in neuronal projections.
