    The retromer complex safeguards against neural progenitor-derived tumorigenesis by regulating Notch receptor trafficking

    Bo Li et al.
    The retromer complex serves as a bomb squad to retrieve and disarm the potentially harmful pool of Notch receptors in a timely manner and thereby safeguards against brain tumor formation.

    Disordered clusters of Bak dimers rupture mitochondria during apoptosis

    Rachel T Uren et al.
    Dimers of Bak assemble into clusters without using a distinct protein-protein interface, which may explain the apparent difficulties in obtaining high resolution structures of the pore complex and in targeting dimer-dimer interactions to regulate apoptosis.

    Ceapins block the unfolded protein response sensor ATF6α by inducing a neomorphic inter-organelle tether

    Sandra Elizabeth Torres et al.
    Ceapins specifically inhibit the unfolded protein sensor ATF6α by directly tethering the cytosolic domain of ATF6α to ABCD3 in cells and in vitro.

    Homozygous YME1L1 mutation causes mitochondriopathy with optic atrophy and mitochondrial network fragmentation

    Bianca Hartmann et al.
    Mutations affecting a nuclear encoded metalloprotease cause of a new form of mitochondriopathy, highlighting the importance of this protease for mitochondrial function in humans.
