    A distinct tethering step is vital for vacuole membrane fusion

    Michael Zick, William T Wickner
    Rigorous assays of membrane fusion show that a distinct tethering step is required for lumenal compartment mixing in a manner that extends beyond simply increasing the amount of total trans-SNARE complex.

    The push-to-open mechanism of the tethered mechanosensitive ion channel NompC

    Yang Wang et al.
    A pushing force on the ankyrin repeat region of NompC leads to the gating of the mechanosensitive ion channel, which may enable cells to feel compression and shrinkage.

    Genome-wide CRISPR screens of oral squamous cell carcinoma reveal fitness genes in the Hippo pathway

    Annie Wai Yeeng Chai et al.
    Genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 screens enable the identification of actionable vulnerabilities of oral squamous cell carcinoma, and their unique dependencies on YAP1 and WWTR1 of the Hippo pathway.

    Functional asymmetry and electron flow in the bovine respirasome

    Joana S Sousa et al.
    Cryo-EM structure of the mammalian respiratory supercomplex containing complexes I, III and IV shows a functional asymmetry of complex III, providing strong evidence for directed electron flow in the respirasome.

    Ferroptotic stress promotes the accumulation of pro-inflammatory proximal tubular cells in maladaptive renal repair

    Shintaro Ide et al.
    Ferroptotic stress enhances the accumulation of damage-associated inflammatory proximal tubular cell state, thereby promoting maladaptive renal repair and the AKI-to-CKD transition.

    Peroxisomal dysfunctions cause lysosomal storage and axonal Kv1 channel redistribution in peripheral neuropathy

    Sandra Kleinecke et al.
    Dysfunctions of myelin peroxisomes cause a lysosomal storage-like disorder associated with alterations in glial and axonal membranes, which is the likely cause of nerve impairment in peroxisomal disorders.

    Transparent soil microcosms for live-cell imaging and non-destructive stable isotope probing of soil microorganisms

    Kriti Sharma et al.
    Two optically transparent substrates enable the exploration of the ecophysiology and spatiotemporal organization and activities of bacteria and fungi within heterogeneous soil-like environments.

    Anti-ferroptotic mechanism of IL4i1-mediated amino acid metabolism

    Leonie Zeitler et al.
    IL4i1 is an amino acid oxidase expressed in the mammalian immune system and snake venoms, which control diametrically opposite cell protection versus cell death pathways, respectively.
