    Mechanical stress contributes to the expression of the STM homeobox gene in Arabidopsis shoot meristems

    Benoît Landrein et al.
    Mechanical stress promotes the expression of the homeobox gene and meristem master regulator STM, synergistically and independently from auxin depletion.

    Subcellular and supracellular mechanical stress prescribes cytoskeleton behavior in Arabidopsis cotyledon pavement cells

    Arun Sampathkumar et al.
    In the Arabidopsis epidermis, the internal mechanical stress of a cell competes with the external stress to control microtubule behavior, providing a framework to understand the mechanical feedbacks that underlie plant morphogenesis.

    A tension-adhesion feedback loop in plant epidermis

    Stéphane Verger et al.
    Tensile stress patterns in tissues are revealed by cell-cell adhesion defects; in turn, cell responses to supracellular tension require cell-cell adhesion.

    Deciphering caveolar functions by syndapin III KO-mediated impairment of caveolar invagination

    Eric Seemann et al.
    Mice lacking the membrane-shaping protein syndapin III show severe reduction of caveolae reminiscent of human caveolinopathies but maintain plasma membrane-associated caveolar coats proteins and thereby unveil physiological impairments associated with lack of invaginated caveolae.

    Three dimensional reconstruction of energy stores for jumping in planthoppers and froghoppers from confocal laser scanning microscopy

    Igor Siwanowicz, Malcolm Burrows
    Three dimensional reconstructions of the mechanical energy stores of jumping insects reveal how the miniaturized components interact and function.

    Genetic defects in β-spectrin and tau sensitize C. elegans axons to movement-induced damage via torque-tension coupling

    Michael Krieg et al.
    A conceptual framework and physical model shows how actin-spectrin networks and microtubule bundles can protect axons from mechanical stress.

    Epidermal RAF prevents allergic skin disease

    Josipa Raguz et al.
    In keratinocytes, the BRAF and RAF1 proteins work independently to balance the activity of mitogenic and stress kinase cascades and uphold the mechanical and immunological barrier functions of the epidermis.

    Spatial patterning of liver progenitor cell differentiation mediated by cellular contractility and Notch signaling

    Kerim B Kaylan et al.
    Mechanical stress plays a cooperative role with Notch in biliary differentiation of liver progenitors, supporting a model of liver development in which biomechanical cues are key inducers of cell fate.
  1. Plain-language Summaries of Research: An inside guide to eLife digests

    Stuart RF King et al.
    After summarizing over 2,400 articles in plain language, the eLife Features team shares what it has learnt about writing and editing for a broad audience.
