    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.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to survival in nature

    Severin Sasso et al.
    Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga C. reinhardtii has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.

    Atomic structure of the 26S proteasome lid reveals the mechanism of deubiquitinase inhibition

    Corey M Dambacher et al.
    Within the isolated lid sub-complex of the proteasome, a finely tuned network of interactions maintains the deubiquitinase in an inhibited conformation; dramatic rearrangements of the lid subunits upon incorporation into the holoenzyme lead to the deubiquitinase’s activation.

    The role of Cdc42 and Gic1 in the regulation of septin filament formation and dissociation

    Yashar Sadian et al.
    Imaging with electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography reveals that competition between Cdc42 and Gic1 for the same subunit within septins controls the formation and breakdown of septin filaments.
