    Immune surveillance of the lung by migrating tissue monocytes

    Mathieu P Rodero et al.
    Monocytes display distinct migratory and functional activity compared to dendritic cells and alveolar macrophages in the lungs.

    Optimized Vivid-derived Magnets photodimerizers for subcellular optogenetics in mammalian cells

    Lorena Benedetti et al.
    eMags is an engineered photodimerizer pair for optogenetic modulation in mammalian cells that is especially suited for the manipulation of intracellular processes occurring in small volumes or subcellular organelles.

    Islet vascularization is regulated by primary endothelial cilia via VEGF-A-dependent signaling

    Yan Xiong et al.
    Primary cilia on endothelial cells are required for VEGF-A/ VEGFR2-dependent signaling, islet vascularization and, consequently, nutrient delivery and insulin disposal.

    PRD-2 directly regulates casein kinase I and counteracts nonsense-mediated decay in the Neurospora circadian clock

    Christina M Kelliher et al.
    Casein kinase I, a pivotal kinase in the circadian clock encoded by ck-1a, is positively regulated by a novel RNA-binding protein that protects ck-1a transcripts from nonsense-mediated decay.

    The leukocyte non-coding RNA landscape in critically ill patients with sepsis

    Brendon P Scicluna et al.
    Long non-coding RNA profiles as a source of signal in sepsis.

    Stochastic asymmetric repartition of lytic machinery in dividing CD8+ T cells generates heterogeneous killing behavior

    Fanny Lafouresse et al.
    A fraction of human CD8+ T cells unequally partitions their lytic components during division, producing cells with heterogeneous killing capacities.

    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.

    Vibrio deploys type 2 secreted lipase to esterify cholesterol with host fatty acids and mediate cell egress

    Suneeta Chimalapati et al.
    Considering the course of a pathogen's evolution, there appears to be interplay between secretion systems, providing unique, synergistic mechanisms to support a successful lifestyle for possibly pathogenesis, symbiosis and/or parasitosis.

    The Sec1/Munc18 protein Vps45 holds the Qa-SNARE Tlg2 in an open conformation

    Travis J Eisemann et al.
    Whereas in a paradigmatic structure an SM protein chaperone clamps its client SNARE shut, a second structure demonstrates that an SM protein can also hold its SNARE open to promote assembly.
