    Myosin motors fragment and compact membrane-bound actin filaments

    Sven K Vogel et al.
    A combination of single-molecule imaging and an in vitro model of the cell cortex has allowed the interactions between actin filaments and filaments made of myosin II to be studied in detail.

    Dual functions of TAF7L in adipocyte differentiation

    Haiying Zhou et al.
    A combination of cellular, biochemical, genetic and genomic techniques have revealed a new molecular player in the production of fat cells in mice, which could improve our understanding of obesity.

    Time line of redox events in aging postmitotic cells

    Nicolas Brandes et al.
    A sudden fall in the levels of the coenzyme NADPH within cells could have a central role in the process of aging.

    Epigenetic conservation at gene regulatory elements revealed by non-methylated DNA profiling in seven vertebrates

    Hannah K Long et al.
    Islands of non-methylated DNA are shown to perform a similar epigenetic role in many different vertebrate species.

    Sox10-dependent neural crest origin of olfactory microvillous neurons in zebrafish

    Ankur Saxena et al.
    Sensory neurons in the olfactory system develop from two different regions of the ectoderm, the olfactory placode and the cranial neural crest, whereas sensory neurons within the eye and ear develop from just one region.

    A novel sphingolipid-TORC1 pathway critically promotes postembryonic development in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Huanhu Zhu et al.
    A lipid acts to promote the development of nematode worm larvae through activation of an enzyme complex called TORC1.

    MicroRNA-146a acts as a guardian of the quality and longevity of hematopoietic stem cells in mice

    Jimmy L Zhao et al.
    Chronic and excessive inflammation can lead to exhaustion of the supply of hematopoietic stem cells and to myeloid malignancies in mice, mimicking important aspects of the myelodysplastic syndrome found in humans.

    Sequence-dependent base pair stepping dynamics in XPD helicase unwinding

    Zhi Qi et al.
    The ability of an enzyme called XPD helicase to unwind the double helix is influenced by the DNA sequence and the availability of energy.

    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.
