    The lysosomal transporter MFSD1 is essential for liver homeostasis and critically depends on its accessory subunit GLMP

    David Massa López et al.
    The so far uncharacterized lysosomal transporter protein MFSD1 is essential for liver homeostasis and needs the highly glycosylated GLMP protein as an accessory subunit for stability.

    Heparan sulfates are critical regulators of the inhibitory megakaryocyte-platelet receptor G6b-B

    Timo Vögtle et al.
    Heparan sulfates in the vessel wall bind and regulate signaling from the megakaryocyte/platelet-specific inhibitory receptor G6b-B, a critical regulator of platelet homeostasis.

    An acquired scaffolding function of the DNAJ-PKAc fusion contributes to oncogenic signaling in fibrolamellar carcinoma

    Rigney E Turnham et al.
    Fibrolamellar carcinoma results from a genetic lesion that produces the DNAJ-PKAc fusion kinase, which is recruited into macromolecular complexes and is sensitive to combinations of signal transduction inhibitor drugs.

    Network oscillation rules imposed by species-specific electrical coupling

    Stefanos Stagkourakis et al.
    An unexpected species difference in electrical coupling of analogous neuroendocrine dopamine neurons in rats and mice reveals a role for gap junction connectivity as a band-pass filter for oscillation frequency in neural networks.

    Sodium taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide is a functional receptor for human hepatitis B and D virus

    Huan Yan et al.
    Biochemical and genetic tests have revealed that a liver protein called NTCP is a functional receptor for hepatitis B and D viruses, which should lead to an improved understanding of the infections caused by these viruses and assist the development of new intervention strategies.

    Shear stress activates ADAM10 sheddase to regulate Notch1 via the Piezo1 force sensor in endothelial cells

    Vincenza Caolo et al.
    Cell protease and cell fate decisions are regulated by a bone fide force-sensor, the Piezo1 channel, and by this means achieve integration with the mechanical environment.

    Transcriptional and epigenomic landscapes of CNS and non-CNS vascular endothelial cells

    Mark F Sabbagh et al.
    Genome-wide integration of transcriptome, accessible chromatin, and DNA methylome data from vascular endothelial cells lays the foundation for understanding the gene regulatory circuits that generate organ-specific vascular specialization.
