    Cellular entry and uncoating of naked and quasi-enveloped human hepatoviruses

    Efraín E Rivera-Serrano et al.
    Quasi-enveloped hepatitis A virions undergo clathrin-mediated endocytosis, followed by ALIX-dependent trafficking to lysosomes where the quasi-envelope is degraded, triggering uncoating of the RNA genome in association with lysosomal membrane rupture.

    Nuclear genetic regulation of the human mitochondrial transcriptome

    Aminah T Ali et al.
    Common nuclear genetic variants are associated with fundamental biological processes occurring in human mitochondria and potentially point to novel roles for nuclear genes in transcriptional regulation of the mitochondrial genome.

    Aurora A depletion reveals centrosome-independent polarization mechanism in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Kerstin Klinkert et al.
    Experiments reveal mechanisms through which Caenorhabditis elegans zygotes depleted of Aurora A or lacking centrosomes spontaneously establish two posterior PAR-2 domains, one at each pole, in a curvature-dependent manner.

    Stepwise activation mechanism of the scramblase nhTMEM16 revealed by cryo-EM

    Valeria Kalienkova et al.
    cryo-EM reveals the properties of distinct conformations occupied during activation of the lipid scramblase nhTMEM16 and provides new insights into its interactions with the lipid environment.

    Bim escapes displacement by BH3-mimetic anti-cancer drugs by double-bolt locking both Bcl-XL and Bcl-2

    Qian Liu et al.
    The pro-apoptotic BH3-protein Bim contains two distinct binding sites for anti-apoptotic proteins that together confer resistance of Bim/Bcl-2 and Bim/Bcl-XL complexes to BH3-mimetic drugs under development for use in humans.

    Membrane bridging by Munc13-1 is crucial for neurotransmitter release

    Bradley Quade et al.
    Cryo-electron tomography, reconstitution, and electrophysiological data show that a fundamental function of Munc13-1 is to bridge synaptic vesicles to the presynaptic plasma membrane.

    PUMILIO hyperactivity drives premature aging of Norad-deficient mice

    Florian Kopp et al.
    Long noncoding RNA Norad performs an essential function in mammalian physiology by inhibiting the activity of PUMILIO RNA binding proteins, thereby suppressing a multi-system degenerative phenotype resembling premature aging.

    Two distinct mechanisms target the autophagy-related E3 complex to the pre-autophagosomal structure

    Kumi Harada et al.
    How the autophagy-related E3 complex localizes to pre-autophagosomal structures and a non-E3 function of the complex were revealed, significantly advancing our understanding of the nucleation step in autophagosome formation.
