    The fibronectin synergy site re-enforces cell adhesion and mediates a crosstalk between integrin classes

    Maria Benito-Jardón et al.
    The fibronectin synergy site is only required in vivo when forces exceed or αvβ3 integrin levels fall below certain thresholds.

    An integrin/MFG-E8 shuttle loads HIV-1 viral-like particles onto follicular dendritic cells in mouse lymph node

    Chung Park, John H Kehrl
    Intravital imaging with HIV-1 viral-like particle in mouse model reveals a mechanism for HIV-1 uptake by subcapsular sinus macrophages that facilitates HIV-1 spreading tofollicular dendritic and B cells.

    T cell immunodominance is dictated by the positively selecting self-peptide

    Wan-Lin Lo et al.
    The T cell repertoire can display immunodominance to an epitope as a result of optimal positive selection in the thymus by one self-peptide/MHC ligand.

    Extracellular matrix-inducing Sox9 promotes both basal progenitor proliferation and gliogenesis in developing neocortex

    Ayse Güven et al.
    Transcription factor Sox9 has an important role in neocortex expansion, where its expression in basal progenitors increases proliferation, induces premature gliogenesis and promotes the expression of extracellular matrix components.

    Cerebellar Purkinje cells control eye movements with a rapid rate code that is invariant to spike irregularity

    Hannah L Payne et al.
    Patterned optogenetic stimulation and analysis of neural activity provide convergent evidence that cerebellar Purkinje cells drive eye movements with a rapid rate code, without an additional contribution of spike irregularity.

    Ankyrin-B is a PI3P effector that promotes polarized α5β1-integrin recycling via recruiting RabGAP1L to early endosomes

    Fangfei Qu et al.
    Ankyrin-B – through interactions with PI3P lipids, dynactin and RabGAP1L – functions as a critical node in the protein circuitry underlying polarized recycling of α5β1-integrin to enable haptotaxis along fibronectin gradients.

    IGF2 mRNA binding protein-2 is a tumor promoter that drives cancer proliferation through its client mRNAs IGF2 and HMGA1

    Ning Dai et al.
    The IGF2 mRNA binding protein-2/IMP2, overexpressed in many common cancers, drives cancer cell proliferation by increasing the abundance of IGF2 and the oncogene HMGA1, which controls a network of effectors that enhance IGF2 action.
