    A structure-based extracellular matrix expansion mechanism of fibrous tissue growth

    Nicholas S Kalson et al.
    Tendon fibroblast cells lay down a collagen matrix template during embryogenesis, and the expansion of this matrix drives post-natal tissue growth.

    Matrix metalloproteinase 14 is required for fibrous tissue expansion

    Susan H Taylor et al.
    The membrane type I-matrix metalloproteinase is essential for the release of collagen fibrils from plasma membrane fibripositors, which is required for the transition from embryonic to postnatal tendon development.

    Plasma membrane overgrowth causes fibrotic collagen accumulation and immune activation in Drosophila adipocytes

    Yiran Zang et al.
    Excess membrane can trap outgoing extracellular matrix proteins in secreting cells, leading to pericellular deposits that cause tissue damage.

    Interspecies interactions induce exploratory motility in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Dominique H Limoli et al.
    Pseudomonas aeruginosa coordinates invasion and destruction of Staphylococcus aureus communities by modulating single-cell and collective motility.

    Genome-wide Association Study: Not so benign

    Barbara Rivera
    Susceptibility to uterine fibroids, benign tumors that affect the health of many women, is linked to genes that are responsible for preserving genome integrity and promoting genitourinary development.

    Asymmetry of movements in CFTR's two ATP sites during pore opening serves their distinct functions

    Ben Sorum et al.
    In the CFTR chloride channel, ATP bound in the catalytic site promotes pore opening, whereas ATP bound in the non-catalytic site supports unidirectional conformational cycling by preventing pore closure without ATP hydrolysis in the catalytic site.

    Automated cell-type classification in intact tissues by single-cell molecular profiling

    Monica Nagendran et al.
    The ability to rapidly stain for any combination of genes in intact tissue with automated quantification of transcripts in individual cells and spatial re-mapping affords new insights into lung biology, and will greatly accelerate progress in scientific and medical research.

    Pdgfra marks a cellular lineage with distinct contributions to myofibroblasts in lung maturation and injury response

    Rongbo Li et al.
    Lineage tracing using a knockin Pdgfra-rtTA tool indicates distinct contributions of this cell lineage to myofibroblasts in normal development, fibrosis and bronchopulmonary dysplasia models.

    Single-cell expression profiling reveals dynamic flux of cardiac stromal, vascular and immune cells in health and injury

    Nona Farbehi et al.
    Comprehensive scRNA-seq analysis of cardiac stromal cells in healthy and injured hearts reveals novel cell types and non-linear cell dynamics, providing new insights into cardiac inflammation, fibrosis and repair.
