    Uni-directional ciliary membrane protein trafficking by a cytoplasmic retrograde IFT motor and ciliary ectosome shedding

    Muqing Cao et al.
    During cilium-generated signaling, ciliary membrane protein trafficking is unidirectional and ciliary membrane protein composition is regulated through action in the cytoplasm of the retrograde intraflagelllar transport (IFT) motor and shedding of ciliary ectosomes.

    Ectocytosis prevents accumulation of ciliary cargo in C. elegans sensory neurons

    Adria Razzauti, Patrick Laurent
    Disposal of ciliary proteins via ectosomes budding from cilia tip or cilia base acts as a safeguard mechanism when cilia trafficking functions are impaired.

    Ciliary Rab28 and the BBSome negatively regulate extracellular vesicle shedding

    Jyothi S Akella et al.
    The RAB-28 GTPase regulates ciliary extracellular vesicle shedding, which may be important for neuron-glia communication.

    A recombinant BBSome core complex and how it interacts with ciliary cargo

    Björn Udo Klink et al.
    Six BBS proteins form a core BBSome transport vehicle, which is sufficient for recognizing membrane proteins for transport into the ciliary compartment.

    Requirement of Smurf-mediated endocytosis of Patched1 in sonic hedgehog signal reception

    Shen Yue et al.
    Smurf1 and Smurf2 have essential functions in the mammalian Shh signaling pathway, binding to and ubiquitylating Patched1, leading to its endocytosis and subsequent degradation in lysosomes.

    Cytoneme delivery of Sonic Hedgehog from ligand-producing cells requires Myosin 10 and a Dispatched-BOC/CDON co-receptor complex

    Eric T Hall et al.
    Sonic Hedgehog is transported inside cytonemes with co-receptors that promote contact-mediated signal delivery to initiate rapid, receptor-dependent responses in recipient cells.

    Growth cone-localized microtubule organizing center establishes microtubule orientation in dendrites

    Xing Liang et al.
    In Caenorhabditis elegans, dendrites establish their unique microtubule polarity by localizing an organizing center behind the growing tip.

    Firefly genomes illuminate parallel origins of bioluminescence in beetles

    Timothy R Fallon et al.
    The first genomic view of beetle luciferase evolution indicates evolutionary independence of luciferase between fireflies and click-beetles, and provide valuable datasets which will accelerate the discovery of new biotechnological tools.

    Fusion surface structure, function, and dynamics of gamete fusogen HAP2

    Juan Feng et al.
    Structure, dynamics, and mutation of a gamete fusion protein and comparisons to viral homologues suggest that after trimerization the domain bearing the membrane-inserting fusion loops can pivot with respect to the trimer 3-fold axis.

    Phospholipase D activity couples plasma membrane endocytosis with retromer dependent recycling

    Rajan Thakur et al.
    Phosphatidic acid regulates recycling of endocytosed plasma membrane vesicles in polarized cells through a retromer and Arf1 dependent process.
