    WDR90 is a centriolar microtubule wall protein important for centriole architecture integrity

    Emmanuelle Steib et al.
    Centriole integrity is ensured by the connection between the inner scaffold and microtubule triplets through POC16/WDR90 proteins.

    Genome-wide effects of the antimicrobial peptide apidaecin on translation termination in bacteria

    Kyle Mangano et al.
    Inhibition of bacterial protein synthesis by an antimicrobial peptide apidaecin triggers translation arrest at the stop codons, ribosome queuing and pervasive stop codon readthrough.

    BiteOscope, an open platform to study mosquito biting behavior

    Felix JH Hol et al.
    A new tool to visualize blood-feeding mosquitoes in high resolution and quantitatively characterize their behavior sheds light on contact-dependent sensing and blood-feeding dynamics of several medically relevant mosquito species.

    Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 plays distinct roles at the mRNA entry and exit channels of the ribosomal preinitiation complex

    Colin Echeverría Aitken et al.
    Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 (eIF3) is required to stabilize the binding of mRNA at the exit channel of the small ribosomal subunit and acts at the entry channel to accelerate mRNA recruitment to the translation preinitiation complex.

    Structured illumination with particle averaging reveals novel roles for yeast centrosome components during duplication

    Shannon Burns et al.
    Visualization of yeast spindle pole proteins using a new microscopy method shows that assembly into the nuclear membrane occurs at the same time as duplication.

    A protein secreted by the Salmonella type III secretion system controls needle filament assembly

    Junya Kato et al.
    A novel component of type III protein secretion systems involved in the assembly of the secretion machine is reported.

    Lichen mimesis in mid-Mesozoic lacewings

    Hui Fang et al.
    The earliest fossil evidence of a mimetic relationship between the Jurassic moth lacewing Lichenipolystoechotes and its co-occurring fossil lichen Daohugouthallus predates modern lichen-insect associations by 165 million years.

    Observation of long-range tertiary interactions during ligand binding by the TPP riboswitch aptamer

    Van K Duesterberg et al.
    The combined use of optical trapping and single-molecule FRET permits the study of riboswitch structure formation and conformational dynamics at the same time.

    Lipoate-binding proteins and specific lipoate-protein ligases in microbial sulfur oxidation reveal an atpyical role for an old cofactor

    Xinyun Cao et al.
    An unexpected new biological function was discovered for the universally conserved cofactor lipoate, as lipoate-binding proteins proved essential for a novel wide-spread prokaryotic sulfur oxidation pathway.

    Centriolar satellites assemble centrosomal microcephaly proteins to recruit CDK2 and promote centriole duplication

    Andrew Kodani et al.
    To control centriole duplication, centriolar satellite proteins assemble a microcephaly-associated protein complex at the centrosome and activate cyclin-dependent kinase 2.
