    Release of cholesterol-rich particles from the macrophage plasma membrane during movement of filopodia and lamellipodia

    Xuchen Hu et al.
    Macrophages release 30-nm vesicular particles enriched in accessible cholesterol during cellular locomotion, a discovery that is likely relevant to cholesterol disposal by these cells.

    Variability of cholesterol accessibility in human red blood cells measured using a bacterial cholesterol-binding toxin

    Rima S Chakrabarti et al.
    Accessible cholesterol levels in human red blood cells were found to be stable within individuals but vary >10-fold among individuals and this variability may contribute to differences in cholesterol trafficking among tissues.

    A novel perivascular cell population in the zebrafish brain

    Marina Venero Galanternik et al.
    A new brain perivascular cell type in the zebrafish related to mammalian Fluorescent Granular Perithelial (FGP) cells emerges directly from endothelium during early development.

    A lipid bound actin meshwork organizes liquid phase separation in model membranes

    Alf Honigmann et al.
    A combination of imaging experiments and computer simulations on a model lipid membrane integrate the 'picket fence' and 'raft' models, and suggest that the interplay between actin binding, lipid phase separation and curvature compartmentalize the membrane.

    Small molecule induced oligomerization, clustering and clathrin-independent endocytosis of the dopamine transporter

    Tatiana Sorkina et al.
    Dopamine transporter (DAT) interaction with furopyrimidine called AIM-100 in intact cells leads to dramatic oligomerization, nanoclustering and endocytosis of DAT by a novel mechanism coupled to the transporter molecule conformation.

    Genetic effects on promoter usage are highly context-specific and contribute to complex traits

    Kaur Alasoo et al.
    Re-analysis of large gene expression datasets with state-of-the-art quantification methods reveals additional candidate genes mediating complex trait associations.

    Consensus designs and thermal stability determinants of a human glutamate transporter

    Erica Cirri et al.
    A fast evolutionary approach to engineer membrane protein kinetic stability yields folded excitatory neurotransmitter transporters and provides insights into their denaturing pathway.

    Mitochondrial biogenesis is transcriptionally repressed in lysosomal lipid storage diseases

    King Faisal Yambire et al.
    Transcription factors KLF2 and ETV1 repress the transcriptional program of mitochondrial biogenesis, resulting in impaired mitochondrial function in lysosomal storage diseases.

    Epitope resurfacing on dengue virus-like particle vaccine preparation to induce broad neutralizing antibody

    Wen-Fan Shen et al.
    Despite size heterogeneity, an epitope-resurfaced mature-form dengue VLP has the potential to induce quaternary structure-recognizing broad cross-reactive neutralizing antibodies.
