    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.

    FRET-based reporters for the direct visualization of abscisic acid concentration changes and distribution in Arabidopsis

    Rainer Waadt et al.
    Fluorescent sensors can track the movement and distribution of the plant hormone abscisic acid in roots and leaves in Arabidopsis.

    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.

    The Peptidisc, a simple method for stabilizing membrane proteins in detergent-free solution

    Michael Luke Carlson et al.
    A simple, yet elegant method for robust self-assembly of diverse membrane proteins into soluble peptide nanoparticles for their structural and functional analysis in detergent-free solutions.

    A re-inducible gap gene cascade patterns the anterior–posterior axis of insects in a threshold-free fashion

    Alena Boos et al.
    The body axis of insects is divided into different fates using a self-regulatory and threshold-free mechanism.

    Cytokinin transfer by a free-living mirid to Nicotiana attenuata recapitulates a strategy of endophytic insects

    Christoph Brütting et al.
    Cytokinin-dependent manipulation of plant metabolism is a strategy employed not only by gallers and leaf-miners but also by a free-living insect, Tupiocoris notatus, which directly transfers cytokinins at feeding sites to manipulate its host plant.

    Molecular shifts in limb identity underlie development of feathered feet in two domestic avian species

    Eric T Domyan et al.
    Feathered feet of pigeons and chickens result from a partial molecular and morphological transformation of legs to a wing-like identity.
