    Structures of the ATP-fueled ClpXP proteolytic machine bound to protein substrate

    Xue Fei et al.
    Cryo-EM structures of the ClpXP protease reveal how protein substrates are bound, show how spiral ClpX hexamers bind symmetry-mismatched heptameric ClpP rings, and suggest mechanisms for processive substrate translocation.

    Agonist-mediated switching of ion selectivity in TPC2 differentially promotes lysosomal function

    Susanne Gerndt et al.
    The lysosomal ion channel TPC2 emerges as an example of an ion channel in which ion selectivity is not fixed but rather agonist-selective.

    The Cryo-EM structure of pannexin 1 reveals unique motifs for ion selection and inhibition

    Kevin Michalski et al.
    The structure of a pannexin 1 uncovers the extracellular loops of pannexin 1 as important structural motifs for ion selectivity and channel inhibition.

    Fibronectin is a smart adhesive that both influences and responds to the mechanics of early spinal column development

    Emilie Guillon et al.
    A fibronectin matrix constantly remodels to the area of highest mechanical stress, and the resulting fibronectin-mediated inter-tissue adhesion impedes neural tube convergence.

    Mononuclear diploid cardiomyocytes support neonatal mouse heart regeneration in response to paracrine IGF2 signaling

    Hua Shen et al.
    Neonatal mouse heart regeneration relies on the presence of mononuclear diploid cardiomyocytes, which unites this process with embryonic heart growth and adult heart regeneration.

    CCR4, a RNA decay factor, is hijacked by a plant cytorhabdovirus phosphoprotein to facilitate virus replication

    Zhen-Jia Zhang et al.
    A cytorhabdovirus phosphoprotein hijacks host CCR4 to trigger turnover of viral nucleoprotein (N)-bound cellular RNAs, thereby releasing nascent RNA-free N protein molecules to bind viral genomic RNAs for optimal replication.

    Drosophila TRIM32 cooperates with glycolytic enzymes to promote cell growth

    Simranjot Bawa et al.
    TRIM32-mediated glycolytic flux generates precursors that are utilized for biomass production in non-dividing muscle, brain and tumor cells, demonstrating a universal metabolic function for TRIM32 in cell growth.

    Male meiotic spindle features that efficiently segregate paired and lagging chromosomes

    Gunar Fabig et al.
    Chromosome segregation in male spermatocytes exhibits anaphase A without shortening of autosome-associated microtubules and partitioning of an unpaired X chromosome that is initiated by an imbalance of attached kinetochore microtubules.

    Identification of slit3 as a locus affecting nicotine preference in zebrafish and human smoking behaviour

    Judit García-González et al.
    Zebrafish studies are able to predict loci and biological pathways affecting human behaviour, paving the way to better understanding of the biological underpinnings of psychiatric disease.

    Eya2 promotes cell cycle progression by regulating DNA damage response during vertebrate limb regeneration

    Konstantinos Sousounis et al.
    Experimental manipulation of a core DNA damage response factor and cell-cycle checkpoint regulators reveals a key role for these processes in the progenitor cells that fuel limb regeneration.
