    Molecular evidence of hybridization between pig and human Ascaris indicates an interbred species complex infecting humans

    Alice Easton et al.
    Comparative phylogenomic analyses based on a new reference-quality human Ascaris genome assembly reveals a pig/human interbred species complex with implications for Ascaris control worldwide.

    The liquid structure of elastin

    Sarah Rauscher, Régis Pomès
    Molecular simulations show how hydrophobicity and conformational disorder underlie the phase separation of elastin-like peptides and the elasticity of human tissues.

    A novel lineage of candidate pheromone receptors for sex communication in moths

    Lucie Bastin-Héline et al.
    In moths, male receptors tuned to type I female pheromones may not have a monophyletic origin.

    Elastic instability during branchial ectoderm development causes folding of the Chlamydosaurus erectile frill

    Sophie A Montandon et al.
    Robust wrinkling pattern of the frilled dragon’s spectacular erectile ruff emerges from an elastic instability during homogeneous growth of the embryonic neck fold frustrated by its attachment to adjacent tissues.

    Anisotropic growth is achieved through the additive mechanical effect of material anisotropy and elastic asymmetry

    Firas Bou Daher et al.
    Growing upwards in the young seedling is controlled by two cooperative mechanical mechanisms: cellulose orientation in inner tissues and differential elasticity in epidermal cells.

    The GTPase IFT27 is involved in both anterograde and retrograde intraflagellar transport

    Diego Huet et al.
    A small GTPase within the flagellum can participate in the control of transport from the base to the tip of the flagellum, and back again.

    Pharmacological inhibition of cystine–glutamate exchange induces endoplasmic reticulum stress and ferroptosis

    Scott J Dixon et al.
    Erastin and sorafenib inhibit system xc- and induce ER stress, suggesting these may be useful tools for probing the functions of system xc- and its role in inducing ER stress and ferroptosis.

    Keratins and plakin family cytolinker proteins control the length of epithelial microridge protrusions

    Yasuko Inaba et al.
    Although intermediate filaments are not widely known to contribute to the morphogenesis of cellular protusions, keratin filaments and cytolinkers are critical for the development of microridge protrusions in zebrafish skin.

    Keratin 14-dependent disulfides regulate epidermal homeostasis and barrier function via 14-3-3σ and YAP1

    Yajuan Guo et al.
    Keratin filaments are revealed as novel regulators of entry into terminal differentiation in the epidermis via an ability to modulate YAP1 function and Hippo signaling.

    Structural heterogeneity of cellular K5/K14 filaments as revealed by cryo-electron microscopy

    Miriam S Weber et al.
    Keratins assemble into tubular filaments with a central density and exhibit structural heterogeneity, which is reflected in alterations of the helical arrangement.
