    Fusion surface structure, function, and dynamics of gamete fusogen HAP2

    Juan Feng et al.
    Structure, dynamics, and mutation of a gamete fusion protein and comparisons to viral homologues suggest that after trimerization the domain bearing the membrane-inserting fusion loops can pivot with respect to the trimer 3-fold axis.

    The neuronal calcium sensor Synaptotagmin-1 and SNARE proteins cooperate to dilate fusion pores

    Zhenyong Wu et al.
    During neurotransmitter release, calcium-induced membrane insertion of the C2B domain of Synaptotagmin re-orients the bound SNARE complex which dilates the fusion pore in a mechanical lever action.

    Molecular organization and dynamics of the fusion protein Gc at the hantavirus surface

    Eduardo A Bignon et al.
    Hantavirus spikes are related laterally by 2-fold Gc contacts that can be disulfide-linked and display a temperature-dependent dynamic behavior at neutral pH, exposing and masking the Gc fusion loops.

    Sec17/Sec18 act twice, enhancing membrane fusion and then disassembling cis-SNARE complexes

    Hongki Song et al.
    Sec17 (αSNAP) and Sec18 (NSF) are shown to act twice, to promote fusion per se and to recycle SNAREs after fusion.

    Creating and controlling visual environments using BonVision

    Gonçalo Lopes et al.
    BonVision is an open-source software for real-time rendering and control of 2D and 3D visual environments that also enables easy replication of experiments.

    Substrate specificity of TOR complex 2 is determined by a ubiquitin-fold domain of the Sin1 subunit

    Hisashi Tatebe et al.
    Sin1, a regulatory subunit of TOR protein kinase, has an evolutionarily conserved domain that specifically binds and recruits substrate for phosphorylation, and may represent a potential target for anti-cancer drugs.

    Sec17/Sec18 can support membrane fusion without help from completion of SNARE zippering

    Hongki Song et al.
    Sec18(NSF) and Sec17(αSNAP) provide a parallel pathway to fusion that is independent of energy from SNARE zippering.

    Synaptotagmin-1 C2B domain interacts simultaneously with SNAREs and membranes to promote membrane fusion

    Shen Wang et al.
    When the Ca2+-binding loops of the C2B domain insert into a membrane, interactions with a phospholipid and the SNARE complex allow synaptotagmin-1 to bend the membrane.

    Primary and promiscuous functions coexist during evolutionary innovation through whole protein domain acquisitions

    José Antonio Escudero et al.
    The coexistence of ancestral and innovative functions is possible and fosters evolutionary innovation in events involving the acquisition of whole protein domains.

    DeepPoseKit, a software toolkit for fast and robust animal pose estimation using deep learning

    Jacob M Graving et al.
    A new deep-learning software toolkit with general-purpose methods for quickly and reliably measuring the full body posture of animals directly from images or videos without physical markers.
