    Murine Fam65b forms ring-like structures at the base of stereocilia critical for mechanosensory hair cell function

    Bo Zhao et al.
    Super-resolution microscopy reveals a highly organized compartment in the stereocilia of mechanosensory hair cells of the inner ear, which is critical for hair cell function and affected in disease.

    Spatial sequestration and detoxification of Huntingtin by the ribosome quality control complex

    Junsheng Yang et al.
    A genome-wide screen in yeast reveals that key proteins in ribosome quality control also regulate mutant Huntingtin aggregation and toxicity.

    IFT trains in different stages of assembly queue at the ciliary base for consecutive release into the cilium

    Jenna L Wingfield et al.
    Multimegadalton intraflagellar transport (IFT) trains assemble by sequential recruitment of IFT subcomplexes from the cell body to the ciliary basal bodies and tubulin, the main IFT cargo, is loaded briefly before trains depart.

    Random sub-diffusion and capture of genes by the nuclear pore reduces dynamics and coordinates inter-chromosomal movement

    Michael Chas Sumner et al.
    Measuring and simulating chromatin dynamics reveals that repositioning of genes to the nuclear pore is neither active nor vectorial, but reduces sub-diffusion and coordinates movement between loci on different chromosomes.

    Molecular and topological reorganizations in mitochondrial architecture interplay during Bax-mediated steps of apoptosis

    Nicholas R Ader et al.
    Correlative microscopy and electron cryo-tomography on apoptotic HeLa cells reveal remodeling of outer and inner mitochondrial membranes, Bax cluster ultrastructure and ATP synthase reorganization in ruptured mitochondria.

    Negative regulation of urokinase receptor activity by a GPI-specific phospholipase C in breast cancer cells

    Michiel van Veen et al.
    GDE3 is a transmembrane GPI-specific phospholipase C that sheds the urokinase receptor (uPAR) from the cell surface resulting in loss of uPAR function in breast cancer cells and reduced tumor growth.

    Nanoscale architecture of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe contractile ring

    Nathan A McDonald et al.
    Super-resolution microscopy reveals the nanoscale molecular architecture of 29 protein components of a eukaryotic contractile ring relative to the membrane.

    A novel GSK3-regulated APC:Axin interaction regulates Wnt signaling by driving a catalytic cycle of efficient ╬▓catenin destruction

    Mira I Pronobis et al.
    A new dynamic mechanistic model explains how the destruction complex negatively regulates Wnt signaling in development and oncogenesis.

    Asymmetric localization of the cell division machinery during Bacillus subtilis sporulation

    Kanika Khanna et al.
    During sporulation, FtsAZ filaments mediating cell division in Bacillus subtilis are positioned asymmetrically around the septum only on the mother cell side, making the septum thinner than during vegetative growth.

    Subcellular sorting of neuregulins controls the assembly of excitatory-inhibitory cortical circuits

    David Exposito-Alonso et al.
    Neuregulins control the integration of specific excitatory and inhibitory synapses through subcellular sorting.
