    Ser/Thr kinase Trc controls neurite outgrowth in Drosophila by modulating microtubule-microtubule sliding

    Rosalind Norkett et al.
    Microtubule-microtubule sliding and neurite outgrowth in Drosophila is controlled by a Ser/Thr kinase Tricornered via phosphorylation of a 'mitotic' motor protein Pavarotti.

    Germ cell connectivity enhances cell death in response to DNA damage in the Drosophila testis

    Kevin L Lu, Yukiko M Yamashita
    Genetic and cell biological study indicates that germ cells' connectivity serves as a mechanism to increase the sensitivity of germline to DNA damage, protecting the genome of gametes, in the Drosophila testis.

    Microtubule plus-ends act as physical signaling hubs to activate RhoA during cytokinesis

    Vikash Verma, Thomas J Maresca
    MT plus-end-mediated recruitment of a cortical pool of ECT2 trigger RhoA activation upon contact, which results in localized contractility during cytokinesis.

    The RhoGAP activity of CYK-4/MgcRacGAP functions non-canonically by promoting RhoA activation during cytokinesis

    Donglei Zhang, Michael Glotzer
    Activation of the key regulator of cytokinesis, RhoA, involves an unexpected contribution by a RhoGAP domain.

    CYK-4 functions independently of its centralspindlin partner ZEN-4 to cellularize oocytes in germline syncytia

    Kian-Yong Lee et al.
    The CYK-4 subunit of the broadly conserved intercellular bridge component centralspindlin, but not its ZEN-4 subunit, is essential for the cytokinesis-like closure of intercellular bridges that cellularizes oocytes to separate them from germline syncytia.

    Vibrator and PI4KIIIα govern neuroblast polarity by anchoring non-muscle myosin II

    Chwee Tat Koe et al.
    Vibrator and PI4KIIIα that stimulate the synthesis of PI(4)P anchor non-muscle myosin II RLC (Sqh) to the plasma membrane and conversely Sqh associates with PI(4)P and facilitates its membrane localization during asymmetric division of neuroblasts.
