    An oomycete effector subverts host vesicle trafficking to channel starvation-induced autophagy to the pathogen interface

    Pooja Pandey et al.
    A pathogen effector mimics starvation-induced autophagy by subverting host endomembrane trafficking to stimulate biogenesis of autophagosomes around pathogen feeding sites, revealing how pathogens interlock distinct host compartments to facilitate infection.

    ATP and large signaling metabolites flux through caspase-activated Pannexin 1 channels

    Adishesh K Narahari et al.
    Purified Pannexin 1 channels activated by caspase cleavage in proteoliposomes reconstitute a permeation pathway for intercellular signaling molecules important in inflammation and cell clearance.

    Atomic structure of a mitochondrial complex I intermediate from vascular plants

    Maria Maldonado et al.
    The first atomic resolution structure of a mitochondrial respiratory complex from plants provides insight into the assembly and evolution of respiration in autotrophic eukaryotes.

    A minimal self-organisation model of the Golgi apparatus

    Quentin Vagne et al.
    An unbiased model for the self-organisation of the Golgi apparatus displays either anterograde vesicular transport or cisternal maturation depending on ratios of budding, fusion and biochemical conversion rates.

    Apolipoprotein L-1 renal risk variants form active channels at the plasma membrane driving cytotoxicity

    Joseph A Giovinazzo et al.
    Cytotoxicity associated with APOL1 renal-risk variants occurs through its plasma-membrane localization, where aberrant channel activity drives a sustained sodium and calcium influx leading to cell swelling and eventually cell death.

    A positive-feedback-based mechanism for constriction rate acceleration during cytokinesis in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Renat N Khaliullin et al.
    Positive feedback between contractile ring myosin and compression-driven cortical flow can explain the exponential accumulation of contractile ring components and constriction rate acceleration that ensures timely cell separation during cytokinesis.

    A Mendelian randomization study of the role of lipoprotein subfractions in coronary artery disease

    Qingyuan Zhao et al.
    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) subfraction traits appear to have heterogeneous effects on coronary artery disease, giving support to the HDL function hypothesis.

    β-hydroxybutyrate accumulates in the rat heart during low-flow ischaemia with implications for functional recovery

    Ross T Lindsay et al.
    β-Hydroxybutyrate accumulates in the perfused rat heart during ischaemia, driven by flux through both HMGCS and SCOT, with implications for functional recovery.

    The Ormdl genes regulate the sphingolipid synthesis pathway to ensure proper myelination and neurologic function in mice

    Benjamin A Clarke et al.
    The ORMDL proteins function to restrain the de novo sphingolipid biosynthetic pathway during myelination, when there is a high demand for sphingolipids to prevent excessive accumulation of metabolic intermediates.

    Intracellular cholesterol trafficking is dependent upon NPC2 interaction with lysobisphosphatidic acid

    Leslie A McCauliff et al.
    Sterol kinetics and cell-based assays reveal a heretofore unknown step in cholesterol trafficking through the endolysosomal compartment, involving a direct functional interaction between NPC2 and lysosbisphosphatidic acid.
