    PLK4 promotes centriole duplication by phosphorylating STIL to link the procentriole cartwheel to the microtubule wall

    Tyler Chistopher Moyer, Andrew Jon Holland
    Cell biological, biochemical, and genetic analyses reveal that PLK4 controls two different phospho-dependent binding interactions that act together to promote procentriole assembly.

    Species specific differences in use of ANP32 proteins by influenza A virus

    Jason S Long et al.
    Chicken ANP32A, and not chicken ANP32B, supports influenza polymerase activity and thus editing of this single gene may generate chickens that are resilient to influenza virus infection.

    The COMA complex interacts with Cse4 and positions Sli15/Ipl1 at the budding yeast inner kinetochore

    Josef Fischböck-Halwachs et al.
    The chromosomal passenger complex interacts with the inner kinetochore COMA complex through the Ctf19 C-terminus in vitro which is shown to be important for mediating accurate chromosome segregation.

    Neck linker docking is critical for Kinesin-1 force generation in cells but at a cost to motor speed and processivity

    Breane G Budaitis et al.
    Force generation by kinesin motor proteins requires formation of both a 2-stranded cover-neck bundle and an asparagine-based latch for transport of membrane-bound cargoes in cells.

    GPCR signaling inhibits mTORC1 via PKA phosphorylation of Raptor

    Jenna L Jewell et al.
    Protein kinase A (PKA) phosphorylates Raptor and inhibits mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) activity.

    Tight bending of the Ndc80 complex provides intrinsic regulation of its binding to microtubules

    Emily Anne Scarborough et al.
    Flexibility of Ndc80 provides an inherent mode of regulation for the conserved kinetochore complex, unique from well-studied phospho-regulation.

    Glial Ca2+signaling links endocytosis to K+ buffering around neuronal somas to regulate excitability

    Shirley Weiss et al.
    An unbiased genetic screen in Drosophila provides evidence for a direct link between glial Ca2+ 25 signaling and classical functions of glia in buffering external K+ as a mechanism to regulate neuronal excitability.

    Dynamic repression by BCL6 controls the genome-wide liver response to fasting and steatosis

    Meredith A Sommars et al.
    B cell lymphoma 6 (BCL6) represses fasting gene expression by opposing peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARa) activity at enhancers, and its ablation protects against steatosis by enhancing fatty acid catabolism.

    Structure and mechanism of a Hypr GGDEF enzyme that activates cGAMP signaling to control extracellular metal respiration

    Zachary F Hallberg et al.
    A newfound signaling enzyme that diverged from a protein family ubiquitous in bacteria provides mechanistic insights into how new signaling activity emerges to control distinct cellular function and physiology.

    Importin-9 wraps around the H2A-H2B core to act as nuclear importer and histone chaperone

    Abhilash Padavannil et al.
    In an unusual complex that is not dissociated by RanGTP alone, Importin-9 sequesters the H2A-H2B core from promiscuous interactions.
