    Epidermal PAR-6 and PKC-3 are essential for larval development of C. elegans and organize non-centrosomal microtubules

    Victoria G Castiglioni et al.
    PAR-6 and PKC-3/aPKC are essential for postembryonic development of C. elegans and control the organization of non-centrosomal microtubule bundles in the epidermis, likely through recruitment of NOCA-1/Ninein.

    The human cytoplasmic dynein interactome reveals novel activators of motility

    William B Redwine et al.
    Using a proximity-dependent labeling approach in living cells, the human cytoplasmic dynein-1 interactome was identified and a new family of dynein activators, ninein and ninein-like, was discovered.

    Kinetic sculpting of the seven stripes of the Drosophila even-skipped gene

    Augusto Berrocal et al.
    Live quantitative monitoring of transcriptional bursting reveals that enhancers responding to different regulators use the same kinetic strategy to produce a complex composite pattern of developmental expression.

    The mechanism of kinesin inhibition by kinesin-binding protein

    Joseph Atherton et al.
    Cryo-electron microscopy reveals how kinesin-binding protein inhibits microtubule attachment in a subset of kinesins.

    Control and regulation of acetate overflow in Escherichia coli

    Pierre Millard et al.
    Elucidating the control and regulation of acetate overflow in E. coli reveals that acetate is not only an end-product but also a co-substrate and a global regulator of glucose metabolism.

    Multiple kinesins induce tension for smooth cargo transport

    Marco Tjioe et al.
    After developing a force-gliding assay with nanometer and piconewton precision, it is concluded that multiple kinesins driving a single cargo induces tension, resulting in smooth cargo transport, even with roadblocks.

    The discriminatory power of the T cell receptor

    Johannes Pettmann et al.
    The ability of the T cell receptor to discriminate ligands is imperfect, allowing T cells to respond to ultra-low-affinity ligands.

    Addressing shortfalls of laboratory HbA1c using a model that incorporates red cell lifespan

    Yongjin Xu et al.
    The person-specific adjusted HbA1c addresses non-glycaemic variation in laboratory HbA1c due to red blood cell lifespan differences, potentially providing a better marker to predict diabetes complications and guide glycaemic management.

    Structural model for differential cap maturation at growing microtubule ends

    Juan Estévez-Gallego et al.
    The tubulin GTPase cycle structurally modulates the microtubule cap, causing lattice expansion, which is an intermediate state involved in phosphate release and regulatory signaling.

    Structural basis of cooperativity in kinesin revealed by 3D reconstruction of a two-head-bound state on microtubules

    Daifei Liu et al.
    A novel algorithm is used to solve the first 3D reconstruction of a stepping kinesin dimer on microtubules, directly visualizing the conformational effects of inter-head strain and giving novel insights into the motility mechanism.
