    Structural basis of αE-catenin–F-actin catch bond behavior

    Xiao-Ping Xu et al.
    A molecular mechanism for force-dependent binding of the cell adhesion proteins αE-catenin and vinculin to actin is derived from the structure of the αE-catenin actin-binding domain bound to F-actin.

    Neck linker docking is critical for Kinesin-1 force generation in cells but at a cost to motor speed and processivity

    Breane G Budaitis et al.
    Force generation by kinesin motor proteins requires formation of both a 2-stranded cover-neck bundle and an asparagine-based latch for transport of membrane-bound cargoes in cells.

    Cooperation between tropomyosin and α-actinin inhibits fimbrin association with actin filament networks in fission yeast

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    The contractile ring actin binding proteins tropomyosin Cdc8 and a-actinin Ain1 synergize to effectively compete with the endocytic actin patch protein fimbrin Fim1 for associating with F-actin networks.

    Human cytomegalovirus IE1 protein alters the higher-order chromatin structure by targeting the acidic patch of the nucleosome

    Qianglin Fang et al.
    Distinct binding of viral proteins to the same region on the nucleosome surface can result in contrasting changes to higher-order chromatin structure in the host cell.

    RNA-directed remodeling of the HIV-1 protein Rev orchestrates assembly of the Rev–Rev response element complex

    Bhargavi Jayaraman et al.
    A pliable hydrophobic interface in the HIV-1 Rev protein enables assembly of diverse oligomeric structures, guided by the RRE scaffold present in HIV-1 mRNAs.

    The nucleosomal acidic patch relieves auto-inhibition by the ISWI remodeler SNF2h

    Nathan Gamarra et al.
    Auto-inhibition of ISWI-family ATP-dependent chromatin remodelers is relieved by a conserved feature of the nucleosome.

    Visualizing the functional architecture of the endocytic machinery

    Andrea Picco et al.
    A combination of light and electron microscopy data provide new insights into the dynamic architecture and the function of the endocytic protein machinery in relation to membrane shape changes in vivo.

    Identification of human TERT elements necessary for telomerase recruitment to telomeres

    Jens C Schmidt et al.
    The TEN-domain of human telomerase mediates the direct interaction with TPP1 to drive telomerase recruitment to telomeres.

    A novel motif of Rad51 serves as an interaction hub for recombination auxiliary factors

    Negar Afshar et al.
    Although Rad51 is the central protein involved in recombinational DNA repair, multiple auxiliary factors potentiate its activity by binding to a single, evolutionarily conserved motif.

    Sequential phenotypic constraints on social information use in wild baboons

    Alecia J Carter et al.
    Social information is a process encompassing information acquisition, application and exploitation that is constrained by an individual’s social, behavioural and demographic phenotype.
