    Myotubularin related protein-2 and its phospholipid substrate PIP2 control Piezo2-mediated mechanotransduction in peripheral sensory neurons

    Pratibha Narayanan et al.
    Local Mtmr2 activity and PI(3,5)P2 abundance dynamically control Piezo2-dependent mechanotransduction in peripheral sensory neurons.

    Apical targeting of the formin Diaphanous in Drosophila tubular epithelia

    Tal Rousso et al.
    Synergistic interactions with PI(4,5)P2 and activated Rho1, which are enriched at the apical membrane of tubular organs, facilitate tight apical targeting of the formin Diaphanous.

    Synchronized HIV assembly by tunable PIP2 changes reveals PIP2 requirement for stable Gag anchoring

    Frauke Mücksch et al.
    PI(4,5)P2 plays a much broader role during the HIV-1 particle assembly process than assumed; it is indispensable not only for recruitment of Gag to the plasma membrane but also for the maintenance of Gag assemblies.

    Agonist-mediated switching of ion selectivity in TPC2 differentially promotes lysosomal function

    Susanne Gerndt et al.
    The lysosomal ion channel TPC2 emerges as an example of an ion channel in which ion selectivity is not fixed but rather agonist-selective.

    Phosphoinositides regulate force-independent interactions between talin, vinculin, and actin

    Charlotte F Kelley et al.
    In vitro reconstitution of the core focal adhesion proteins talin and vinculin with actin reveals lipid-dependent release of autoinhibition.

    A role of OCRL in clathrin-coated pit dynamics and uncoating revealed by studies of Lowe syndrome cells

    Ramiro Nández et al.
    Studies of Lowe syndrome patient cells, which lack the inositol 5-phosphatase OCRL, suggest that a defect in endocytosis plays a role in the pathological manifestations of the disease.

    Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate optical uncaging potentiates exocytosis

    Alexander M Walter et al.
    Increasing PI(4,5)P2 on a sub-second timescale using a novel, membrane-permeant UV activatable PI(4,5)P2 molecule augments exocytosis which requires the PI(4,5)P2 interacting exocytotic proteins Munc13-2 and synaptotagmin-1.

    The Caenorhabditis elegans Tubby homolog dynamically modulates olfactory cilia membrane morphogenesis and phospholipid composition

    Danielle DiTirro et al.
    A Tubby protein regulates ciliary membrane morphology and phosphoinositide composition in a context-dependent manner.

    Chronic postnatal chemogenetic activation of forebrain excitatory neurons evokes persistent changes in mood behavior

    Sthitapranjya Pati et al.
    Enhanced Gq-signaling-mediated activation of forebrain excitatory neurons in postnatal life programs enhanced anxiety-, despair- and schizophrenia-like behavior, recapitulating key aspects of the behavioral consequences of early life adversity.

    A single-parasite transcriptional atlas of Toxoplasma Gondii reveals novel control of antigen expression

    Yuan Xue et al.
    Single-cell RNA-sequencing resolves the transcriptional landscape of asexual development in Toxoplasma gondii, revealing concerted genetic programs to Plasmodiumfalciparum and a novel transcriptional factor that controls antigen switching.
