    Rho1 activation recapitulates early gastrulation events in the ventral, but not dorsal, epithelium of Drosophila embryos

    Ashley Rich et al.
    Spatially and temporally patterned activation of the small GTPase Rho1 indicates that ventral-specific factors contribute to cell- and tissue-level behaviors during ventral furrow formation, the first step in Drosophila gastrulation.

    Co-regulation and function of FOXM1/RHNO1 bidirectional genes in cancer

    Carter J Barger et al.
    FOXM1 is co-expressed with its bidirectional gene partner RHNO1, and the two genes promote DNA repair, cell growth and survival, and chemotherapy resistance in ovarian cancer.

    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.

    A novel checkpoint pathway controls actomyosin ring constriction trigger in fission yeast

    Tomás Edreira et al.
    In fission yeast cell wall stress triggers a cytokinesis blockage specifically in the onset of actomyosin ring constriction.

    BRCT domains of the DNA damage checkpoint proteins TOPBP1/Rad4 display distinct specificities for phosphopeptide ligands

    Matthew Day et al.
    Structural and biochemical analyses of BRCT domain interactions defines TOPBP1/Rad4 selectivity for phosphorylated motifs, allowing identification of new interactions, and providing insights into assembly of different TOPBP1-scaffolded DNA repair complexes.

    The cAMP effector PKA mediates Moody GPCR signaling in Drosophila blood–brain barrier formation and maturation

    Xiaoling Li et al.
    A polarized Moody/protein kinase A pathway plays an unrecognized central role in controlling the enormous cell growth and blood–brain barrier integrity in a highly coordinated spatiotemporal manner in brain homeostasis.

    Crumbs is an essential regulator of cytoskeletal dynamics and cell-cell adhesion during dorsal closure in Drosophila

    David Flores-Benitez, Elisabeth Knust
    The evolutionarily conserved polarity protein Crumbs links the regulation of cytoskeleton dynamics and cell-cell adhesion with epithelial morphogenesis.

    Inferring joint sequence-structural determinants of protein functional specificity

    Andrew F Neuwald et al.
    A statistical approach for predicting non-active site residues responsible for allostery, cooperativity, or other subtle but functionally important interactions is described and applied to various protein families.

    The Photorhabdus asymbiotica virulence cassettes deliver protein effectors directly into target eukaryotic cells

    Isabella Vlisidou et al.
    The insect pathogenic bacterium Photorhabdus has evolved astonishing nano-scale analogues of hypodermic syringes that it uses to inject toxins into host cells.

    Controlling contractile instabilities in the actomyosin cortex

    Masatoshi Nishikawa et al.
    Combining quantitative biological experiment and physical description of actomyosin cortex reveals a contractile instability in the cortex of C. elegans embryo, and its biochemical control in order to robustly drive morphogenetic events.
