    A postsynaptic PI3K-cII dependent signaling controller for presynaptic homeostatic plasticity

    Anna G Hauswirth et al.
    A screen encompassing all kinases and phosphatases reveals that PI3K-cII, PI3K-cIII and Rab11-dependent recycling endosomes comprise a novel, postsynaptic 'signaling controller' that is part of an integrated, trans-synaptic signaling system necessary for presynaptic homeostatic plasticity.

    Crumbs organizes the transport machinery by regulating apical levels of PI(4,5)P2 in Drosophila

    Johanna Lattner et al.
    The polarity protein crumbs controls apical secretion and the architecture of the apical domain by modulating PI(4,5)P2 levels and the organization of apical Rab6-, Rab11-, and Rab30-dependent trafficking.

    A quantitative approach for analyzing the spatio-temporal distribution of 3D intracellular events in fluorescence microscopy

    Thierry Pécot et al.
    QuantEv is a fully automatic and semi-parametric method that allows quantitative analysis of the spatio-temporal distribution of complex molecular trafficking objects at the scale of the whole cell.

    Molecular mechanism for Rabex-5 GEF activation by Rabaptin-5

    Zhe Zhang et al.
    The GEF activity of Rabex-5 is weakly autoinhibited by its CC domain and activated by Rabaptin-5 and the two proteins work concertedly to activate Rab5.

    Nuclear export receptor CRM1 recognizes diverse conformations in nuclear export signals

    Ho Yee Joyce Fung et al.
    Building on previous work (Fung et al., 2015), the structures of eight new nuclear export signal (NES) peptides bound to Exportin CRM1 are reported, revealing striking diversity in NES structures, a small conserved secondary structural element, and a CRM1 residue that functions as a selectivity filter.

    Nuclear pore heterogeneity influences HIV-1 infection and the antiviral activity of MX2

    Melissa Kane et al.
    Comprehensive investigation reveals the variability and importance of the nuclear pore complex in HIV-1 infection and the activity of the antiretroviral protein, MX2.

    Traumatic injury compromises nucleocytoplasmic transport and leads to TDP-43 pathology

    Eric N Anderson et al.
    Traumatic injury leads to functional defects in nucleocytoplasmic transport and TDP-43 pathology in multiple model systems.

    Glycan modification of antigen alters its intracellular routing in dendritic cells, promoting priming of T cells

    Ingeborg Streng-Ouwehand et al.
    Controlled neo-glycosylation of antigens can influence intracellular routing of antigens and the nature and strength of immune response, and should therefore be considered as a major determinant in the design of vaccines against cancer and infectious diseases.

    In vivo identification of GTPase interactors by mitochondrial relocalization and proximity biotinylation

    Alison K Gillingham et al.
    Relocation of Rab, Ras and Rho family GTPases to the surface of mitochondria enables efficient identification of their effectors, exchange factors and GAPs by proximity biotinylation.

    Endocytosis at the Drosophila blood–brain barrier as a function for sleep

    Gregory Artiushin et al.
    Endocytosis through the Drosophila blood–brain barrier influences and depends upon sleep.
