    Human cytomegalovirus antagonizes activation of Fcγ receptors by distinct and synergizing modes of IgG manipulation

    Philipp Kolb et al.
    Molecular mechanisms reveal that human cytomegalovirus has evolved to deploy two individual glycoproteins working in synergy to efficiently evade antibody-mediated immunity mediated by Fc-gamma receptors.

    Stochastic asymmetric repartition of lytic machinery in dividing CD8+ T cells generates heterogeneous killing behavior

    Fanny Lafouresse et al.
    A fraction of human CD8+ T cells unequally partitions their lytic components during division, producing cells with heterogeneous killing capacities.

    A two-hybrid antibody micropattern assay reveals specific in cis interactions of MHC I heavy chains at the cell surface

    Cindy Dirscherl et al.
    A generally applicable two-hybrid assay demonstrates that MHC class I heavy chains devoid of beta-2 microglobulin associate within and across allotypes, with implications for endocytosis and autoimmunity.

    Sec17 (α-SNAP) and an SM-tethering complex regulate the outcome of SNARE zippering in vitro and in vivo

    Matthew L Schwartz et al.
    Sec17 is shown to have divergent effects on pre-fusion SNARE complex activity, depending on the state of SNARE zippering and HOPS, an SM-tether complex, controls the outcome of Sec17-SNARE engagement.

    Sec24 phosphorylation regulates autophagosome abundance during nutrient deprivation

    Saralin Davis et al.
    Phosphorylation of a core trafficking component, the COPII coat subunit Sec24, regulates cross-talk between the secretory and autophagy machinery during starvation.

    SIRT6 regulates Ras-related protein R-Ras2 by lysine defatty-acylation

    Xiaoyu Zhang et al.
    A posttranslational regulatory mechanism for a Ras family small GTPase could open up new directions to understand and control the Ras family of proteins that are important for physiology and diseases.

    A dynamin 1-, dynamin 3- and clathrin-independent pathway of synaptic vesicle recycling mediated by bulk endocytosis

    Yumei Wu et al.
    Analysis of neurons that lack the two neuronal dynamins, dynamin 1 and 3, demonstrates a pathway of synaptic vesicle reformation that does not require these two dynamins or clathrin-dependent budding.

    Lymph node stromal cells constrain immunity via MHC class II self-antigen presentation

    Antonio P Baptista et al.
    MHC class II-mediated self-antigen presentation by lymph node stromal cells controls regulatory T cell homeostasis, thus safeguarding immune tolerance.

    Architecture and dynamics of the autophagic phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex

    Sulochanadevi Baskaran et al.
    The first three-dimensional structure of the PI3KC3 complex I, which is involved in autophagy, provides a framework for understanding the allosteric regulation of lipid kinase activity.
