    Distinct mechanisms regulating mechanical force-induced Ca2+ signals at the plasma membrane and the ER in human MSCs

    Tae-Jin Kim et al.
    Deep penetration and transmission of mechanical force to regulate ER functions depends on not only the passive cytoskeletal support, but also the active actomyosin contractility, which is dispensable for mechanotransduction at the plasma membrane.

    Measuring NDC80 binding reveals the molecular basis of tension-dependent kinetochore-microtubule attachments

    Tae Yeon Yoo et al.
    Quantitative experiments and theory show that the tension-dependent regulation of NDC80 binding to kinetochore microtubules arises from a combination of the changing Aurora B concentration at NDC80 and the nonlinearity of Aurora B autoactivation.

    A CDC25 family protein phosphatase gates cargo recognition by the Vps26 retromer subunit

    Tie-Zhong Cui et al.
    The CDC25 family protein phosphatase Mih1 promotes downregulation of cell surface proteins in budding yeast by dephosphorylating a subunit of the retromer complex, which mediates plasma membrane recycling.

    The spatial separation of processing and transport functions to the interior and periphery of the Golgi stack

    Hieng Chiong Tie et al.
    Transport machinery localizes at the cisternal rim while modification machinery localizes at the interior.

    The Arabidopsis transcription factor ABIG1 relays ABA signaled growth inhibition and drought induced senescence

    Tie Liu et al.
    Arabidopsis plants slow growth and jettison leaves in response to drought via a mechanism that involves the transcription factor ABIG1.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Genetic, evolutionary and plant breeding insights from the domestication of maize

    Sarah Hake, Jeffrey Ross-Ibarra
    Comparing maize to its wild ancestor teosinte advances our understanding of how it and other cereal crops evolved, and also identifies the genetic variation that can contribute to important agricultural traits.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into mammalian biology from the wild house mouse Mus musculus

    Megan Phifer-Rixey, Michael W Nachman
    Studies of the house mouse Mus musculus have provided important insights into mammalian biology, and efforts to study wild house mice and to create new inbred strains from wild populations have the potential to increase its usefulness as a model system.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The fascinating and secret wild life of the budding yeast S. cerevisiae

    Gianni Liti
    The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has informed our understanding of molecular biology and genetics for decades, and learning more about its natural history could fuel a new era of functional and evolutionary studies of this classic model organism.
