    Evidence for a DNA-relay mechanism in ParABS-mediated chromosome segregation

    Hoong Chuin Lim et al.
    In vitro, in vivo and in silico evidence suggests that bacteria exploit intrinsic chromosomal fluctuations to achieve intracellular transport.

    Importin-β modulates the permeability of the nuclear pore complex in a Ran-dependent manner

    Alan R Lowe et al.
    The Ran GTPase plays a role in defining the physical properties of the nuclear pore complex transport channel by remodeling the binding interactions of importin-β with the nucleoporin Nup153 at the nuclear face of the pore.

    Transcriptional adaptation in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Vahan Serobyan et al.
    Genes implicated in mutant mRNA decay and small RNA maturation and transport into the nucleus are required for transcriptional adaptation in C. elegans.

    Context-dependent deposition and regulation of mRNAs in P-bodies

    Congwei Wang et al.
    An unbiased screen using various stresses reveals selective mRNA transport into P-bodies, in which mRNAs are either stored or decayed in a process that may promote chronological lifespan in yeast.

    Localised dynactin protects growing microtubules to deliver oskar mRNA to the posterior cortex of the Drosophila oocyte

    Ross Nieuwburg et al.
    Dynactin acts as an anti-catastrophe factor that extends microtubule growth; posteriorly elucidating a new essential step in oskar mRNA localisation and providing a novel mechanism by which motor-dependent transport can amplify the polarity of MT networks.

    Biofilms: Take my breath away

    Vinai C Thomas, Paul D Fey
    A lack of oxygen activates a pathway that causes the bacterial cell wall to break down, which, in turn, aids bacterial biofilm development.
