    A molecular mechanism for LINC complex branching by structurally diverse SUN-KASH 6:6 assemblies

    Manickam Gurusaran, Owen Richard Davies
    The LINC complex has a core 6:6 structure in which KASH-binding induces head-to-head interactions between SUN trimers, suggesting force transduction between cytoskeletal and nuclear components through branched LINC complex networks.

    The LINC complex transmits integrin-dependent tension to the nuclear lamina and represses epidermal differentiation

    Emma Carley et al.
    Forces stemming from cell-matrix adhesions, but not cell-cell adhesions, are directly transmitted to the nuclear lamina to regulate epidermal cell fate.

    Dissection of affinity captured LINE-1 macromolecular complexes

    Martin S Taylor et al.
    The range of molecular forms adopted by L1 retrotransposons reflect a tapestry of lifecycle-permissive and -restrictive host-parasite interactions occurring within cells.

    The mammalian LINC complex component SUN1 regulates muscle regeneration by modulating drosha activity

    Tsui Han Loo et al.
    The LINC complex, that couples the interphase cytoskeleton to the nucleus, regulates the processing of a cluster of miRNAs required for muscle regeneration by recruiting and interacting directly with Drosha.

    Stiffness and tension gradients of the hair cell’s tip-link complex in the mammalian cochlea

    Mélanie Tobin et al.
    The tip-link complex of the hair cell is mechanically tuned along the tonotopic axis of the cochlea.

    The zinc finger proteins ZNF644 and WIZ regulate the G9a/GLP complex for gene repression

    Chunjing Bian et al.
    Repression of gene expression by the histone methyltransferase G9a is guided by two zinc finger proteins that can recognize consensus sequences in DNA.

    Structure of mouse protocadherin 15 of the stereocilia tip link in complex with LHFPL5

    Jingpeng Ge et al.
    Structures of a mouse PCDH15 and LHFPL5 complex, two proteins involved in converting sound into electrical signals, illuminate how mechanical stimuli are delivered to the membrane of inner ear hair cells.

    The somatically generated portion of T cell receptor CDR3α contributes to the MHC allele specificity of the T cell receptor

    Philippa Marrack et al.
    The alleles of the major histocompatibility complex present in an individual affect the sequences, including, surprisingly, the nongerm line encoded amino acids, of the receptors on T cells that allow recognition of antigens.

    Connectomics of the zebrafish's lateral-line neuromast reveals wiring and miswiring in a simple microcircuit

    Eliot Dow et al.
    The technique of serial blockface scanning electron microscopy, which permits the complete reconstruction of neuronal structures, allows comparison of the detailed "wiring diagrams" of lateral-line receptor organs in wild-type and mutant zebrafish.

    Casposase structure and the mechanistic link between DNA transposition and spacer acquisition by CRISPR-Cas

    Alison B Hickman et al.
    The tetrameric structure of a casposase bound to DNA and its biochemical properties show how a transposase could have evolved to perform CRISPR-Cas spacer acquisition.
