    How oscillating aerodynamic forces explain the timbre of the hummingbird’s hum and other animals in flapping flight

    Ben J Hightower et al.
    A first-principles acoustics model reveals how the acoustic spectrum generated by flapping wings originates from oscillating aerodynamic forces, and is validated by in vivo aerodynamic force measurements and acoustic holography.

    Bioacoustics: Characterizing the hum of hovering animals

    Robert Niese
    The sounds of flying animals, such as the hum of a hummingbird as it hovers, are influenced by the unique forces generated by the flapping of their wings.

    Kinesin-4 KIF21B limits microtubule growth to allow rapid centrosome polarization in T cells

    Peter Jan Hooikaas et al.
    Kinesin-4 KIF21B promotes rapid reorientation of the microtubule network during formation of immunological synapse in T cells by acting as a pausing and catastrophe-inducing factor that keeps microtubules short.

    SLAMF6​ deficiency augments tumor killing and skews toward an effector phenotype revealing it as a novel T cell checkpoint

    Emma Hajaj et al.
    SLAMF6 is an inhibitory checkpoint of T cells, the lack of which leads to better tumor control, suggesting a new immunotherapy target.

    Optogenetic dissection of mitotic spindle positioning in vivo

    Lars-Eric Fielmich et al.
    New germline gene expression, knockout, and optogenetic tools reveal essential roles for Gα-GPR-1,2/Pins as a regulatable membrane anchor and LIN-5/NuMA as an activator of cortical dynein in mitotic spindle positioning.

    Chemical structure-guided design of dynapyrazoles, cell-permeable dynein inhibitors with a unique mode of action

    Jonathan B Steinman et al.
    Analyses of the chemical structure of ciliobrevins led to dynein inhibitors with improved properties and higher potency.

    Lissencephaly-1 is a context-dependent regulator of the human dynein complex

    Janina Baumbach et al.
    An in vitro reconstitution approach reveals context-dependent roles of Lissencephaly-1 in the regulation of dynein-dynactin behaviour on dynamic microtubules.
