    Conformational changes in twitchin kinase in vivo revealed by FRET imaging of freely moving C. elegans

    Daniel Porto et al.
    Quantitative FRET imaging in moving C. elegans shows that stretch-unfolding of twitchin kinase occurs in the active muscle, whereby mechanical activity titrates the signaling pathway of this cytoskeletal kinase.

    Myogenin controls via AKAP6 non-centrosomal microtubule-organizing center formation at the nuclear envelope

    Robert Becker et al.
    Myogenin promotes centrosome attenuation and establishes the nuclear envelope as the dominant microtubule organization center via the scaffold protein AKAP6, which is required for the recruitment of centrosomal proteins.

    The LRRK2 G2019S mutation alters astrocyte-to-neuron communication via extracellular vesicles and induces neuron atrophy in a human iPSC-derived model of Parkinson’s disease

    Aurelie de Rus Jacquet et al.
    Extracellular vesicles are proposed as novel, non-cell-autonomous mediators of neuronal atrophy in Parkinson's disease.

    Protective mitochondrial fission induced by stress-responsive protein GJA1-20k

    Daisuke Shimura et al.
    Stress-induced alternative translation of an otherwise common gap junction protein generates an isoform that orchestrates protective mitochondrial fission and organ protection during anticipated ischemia.

    Condensation tendency and planar isotropic actin gradient induce radial alignment in confined monolayers

    Tianfa Xie et al.
    Radial alignment in confined cell monolayers with isotropic actin network is found to be mediated by the condensation tendency and tissue-scale actin gradient.

    Integrin α5β1 nano-presentation regulates collective keratinocyte migration independent of substrate rigidity

    Jacopo Di Russo et al.
    The use of nanopatterned hydrogels and specific integrin α5β1 peptidomimetic revealed that keratinocytes require an optimum inter-ligand spacing to best propagate intercellular forces and efficiently coordinate cell sheet migration.

    The dual role of amyloid-β-sheet sequences in the cell surface properties of FLO11-encoded flocculins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Clara Bouyx et al.
    The role of amyloid-β-aggregation sequence and of the various domains in the physiological function of the FLO11-encoded adhesin in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are disclosed in this report.

    Heparin-binding motif mutations of human diamine oxidase allow the development of a first-in-class histamine-degrading biopharmaceutical

    Elisabeth Gludovacz et al.
    Because heparin-binding motif mutations of human diamine oxidase (hDAO) block cellular uptake and strongly decrease clearance in vivo, modified recombinant hDAO might be a good candidate for the treatment of symptoms induced by excessive endogenous histamine release.

    Identification of abscission checkpoint bodies as structures that regulate ESCRT factors to control abscission timing

    Lauren K Williams et al.
    Cytoplasmic bodies sequester important abscission machinery to delay completion of cytokinesis in response to mitotic errors.

    Endothelial junctional membrane protrusions serve as hotspots for neutrophil transmigration

    Janine JG Arts et al.
    Neutrophils use dorsal membrane protrusions of endothelial cells to cross the vascular wall.
