    A facile approach for the in vitro assembly of multimeric membrane transport proteins

    Erika A Riederer et al.
    Methodology for the in vitro assembly of multimeric membrane proteins and the utility of the approach for generating heteromeric variants of homo-multimeric proteins is described.

    Ancient role of sulfakinin/cholecystokinin-type signalling in inhibitory regulation of feeding processes revealed in an echinoderm

    Ana B Tinoco et al.
    Starfish feed by everting their stomach out of their mouth over prey and, interestingly, this unusual feeding mechanism is inhibited by substances similar to hormones that regulate feeding in humans.

    Pregnancy success in mice requires appropriate cannabinoid receptor signaling for primary decidua formation

    Yingju Li et al.
    Cannabinoid signaling is critical for integration of vascular system and uterine decidualization.

    Small-molecule G-quadruplex stabilizers reveal a novel pathway of autophagy regulation in neurons

    Jose F Moruno-Manchon et al.
    G-quadruplex DNA regulates autophagy in neurons.

    In vitro reconstitution reveals major differences between human and bacterial cytochrome c synthases

    Molly C Sutherland et al.
    Despite the known heme attachment motif (CXXCH) in all c-type cytochromes, attachment elements recognized by human and bacterial cytochrome c biogenesis pathways are distinct, providing clear targets for differential inhibitors.

    The structure of the COPII transport-vesicle coat assembled on membranes

    Giulia Zanetti et al.
    A structure of the complete, membrane bound, COPII coat solved by sub-tomogram averaging reveals the arrangement of all protein subunits on the membrane and suggests a mechanism for coating heterogeneously-shaped carriers.

    Individual variation in Achilles tendon morphology and geometry changes susceptibility to injury

    Nai-Hao Yin et al.
    Studying individual Achilles tendon geometry and interface sliding capacity may allow prediction of injury sites, and targeted training on specific muscle-(sub-)tendon units may boost beneficial outcomes for Achilles tendinopathy.

    A new class of disordered elements controls DNA replication through initiator self-assembly

    Matthew W Parker et al.
    DNA replication initiation proteins contain a disordered domain that impacts each stage of their function, from chromatin recruitment and initiator co-assembly to the subsequent displacement of the factors from chromatin.

    Drosophila non-muscle myosin II motor activity determines the rate of tissue folding

    Claudia G Vasquez et al.
    The rate of cell and tissue contraction scales with the motor activity of myosin 2.
    1. Physics of Living Systems

    Design of biochemical pattern forming systems from minimal motifs

    Philipp Glock et al.
    Theoretical analysis and in vitro reconstitution of a biological reaction-diffusion system identify key functional motifs as well as underlying principles and enable rebuilding pattern formation in a modular fashion.
