    Discovery and characterization of a novel family of prokaryotic nanocompartments involved in sulfur metabolism

    Robert J Nichols et al.
    A protein-bounded organelle-like compartment from Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942 is upregulated under sulfur starvation and contains a cysteine desulfurase cargo enzyme.

    Effects of microcompartmentation on flux distribution and metabolic pools in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii chloroplasts

    Anika Küken et al.
    Mathematical models reveal that under the physiologically different conditions ambient and high CO2, two algal microcompartments are metabolically connected by facilitated transport.

    Filament formation by metabolic enzymes is a specific adaptation to an advanced state of cellular starvation

    Ivana Petrovska et al.
    A starvation-induced drop in cytosolic pH promotes assembly of budding yeast glutamine synthetase into enzymatically inactive filaments that function as enzyme storage depots.

    PomX, a ParA/MinD ATPase activating protein, is a triple regulator of cell division in Myxococcus xanthus

    Dominik Schumacher et al.
    In the PomX/Y/Z cell division regulatory system, PomX is a PomZ ATPase activating protein, a scaffold for PomX/Y/Z complex formation, and important for fission of the PomX/Y/Z complex during division.

    Native architecture of the Chlamydomonas chloroplast revealed by in situ cryo-electron tomography

    Benjamin D Engel et al.
    The first 3D views of the native algal chloroplast provide new insights into thylakoid biogenesis, photosynthesis, and carbon fixation.

    Shape selection and mis-assembly in viral capsid formation by elastic frustration

    Carlos I Mendoza, David Reguera
    Nucleation, elasticity theory, and simulations were combined to construct a general phase diagram that elucidates the conditions for successful viral assembly and the key factors to prevent it.

    Carboxysomes: How bacteria arrange their organelles

    Emilia Mauriello
    The structures responsible for photosynthesis in bacteria use the nucleoid and two unique proteins as a scaffold to position themselves.
