  1. Point of View: Building for the future

    Hugh Pelham
    As the staff of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology settle into their new building in Cambridge, its director Hugh Pelham explains the challenges of living up to its prestigious past.
  2. Living Science: Grandmother elephants

    Eve Marder
    As new technology makes it possible to perform experiments that were unimaginable a decade ago, Eve Marder argues that we can still learn from the past.

    Ultrafast endocytosis at Caenorhabditis elegans neuromuscular junctions

    Shigeki Watanabe et al.
    Optogenetics has revealed that synaptic vesicles can be recycled extremely rapidly in nematodes, indicating that existing models for how synapses 'reload' may need to be revised.
    1. Cell Biology

    Caveolae internalization repairs wounded cells and muscle fibers

    Matthias Corrotte et al.
    Cells repair damage to their outer membranes not by patching them as previously thought, but by using proteins called caveolins to remove the damaged regions by endocytosis.
  3. Living Science: The haves and the have nots

    Eve Marder
    As the equipment needed to perform state-of-the-art research in many areas of biology becomes ever more expensive, Eve Marder worries that researchers in less wealthy institutions might be left behind.

    Massive endocytosis triggered by surface membrane palmitoylation under mitochondrial control in BHK fibroblasts

    Donald W Hilgemann et al.
    Mitochondria can trigger massive endocytosis by releasing coenzyme A into the cytoplasm and thereby promoting the addition of fatty acids to surface membrane proteins.

    Evolution of thorax architecture in ant castes highlights trade-off between flight and ground behaviors

    Roberto A Keller et al.
    Body shape and behavioural specializations found across the castes of ant species evolved together and reflect different abilities for ground behaviors.
    1. Cell Biology

    An unmet actin requirement explains the mitotic inhibition of clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Satdip Kaur et al.
    Endocytosis is switched off in dividing cells because actin is not available to assist the clathrin machinery at a time when membrane tension is increased.
