    CryoEM and computer simulations reveal a novel kinase conformational switch in bacterial chemotaxis signaling

    C Keith Cassidy et al.
    An atomic model of the bacterial chemosensory array obtained through the synthesis of cryo-electron tomography and large-scale molecular-dynamics simulations reveals a new kinase conformation during signaling events.

    Membrane bridging by Munc13-1 is crucial for neurotransmitter release

    Bradley Quade et al.
    Cryo-electron tomography, reconstitution, and electrophysiological data show that a fundamental function of Munc13-1 is to bridge synaptic vesicles to the presynaptic plasma membrane.

    Reconstitution reveals two paths of force transmission through the kinetochore

    Grace E Hamilton et al.
    Two components of the inner kinetochore (OA and Mif2) are independently capable of transmitting physiologically relevant forces to a centromeric nucleosome.

    In vivo reconstitution finds multivalent RNA–RNA interactions as drivers of mesh-like condensates

    Weirui Ma et al.
    Binding of a multivalent RNA-binding protein to mRNAs that are able to form pervasive RNA–RNA interactions induces formation of mesh-like condensates, whereas binding of mostly structured mRNAs induces sphere-like condensates.

    Cre-assisted fine-mapping of neural circuits using orthogonal split inteins

    Haojiang Luan et al.
    A genetic method allows neurons to be individually identified and characterized by combining information about both their developmental origins and their mature patterns of gene expression.

    The Peptidisc, a simple method for stabilizing membrane proteins in detergent-free solution

    Michael Luke Carlson et al.
    A simple, yet elegant method for robust self-assembly of diverse membrane proteins into soluble peptide nanoparticles for their structural and functional analysis in detergent-free solutions.

    Sec17 (α-SNAP) and an SM-tethering complex regulate the outcome of SNARE zippering in vitro and in vivo

    Matthew L Schwartz et al.
    Sec17 is shown to have divergent effects on pre-fusion SNARE complex activity, depending on the state of SNARE zippering and HOPS, an SM-tether complex, controls the outcome of Sec17-SNARE engagement.

    Ternatin and improved synthetic variants kill cancer cells by targeting the elongation factor-1A ternary complex

    Jordan D Carelli et al.
    An ancient complex comprising the eukaryotic elongation factor-1A and aminoacylated tRNA is shown to be the target of a cyclic heptapeptide and two unrelated natural products with potent anticancer activity.

    Wiskott Aldrich syndrome protein regulates non-selective autophagy and mitochondrial homeostasis in human myeloid cells

    Elizabeth Rivers et al.
    WASp is an immunometabolic regulator of human myeloid cells and regulates autophagy and mitochondrial homeostasis.
