    Negative regulation of urokinase receptor activity by a GPI-specific phospholipase C in breast cancer cells

    Michiel van Veen et al.
    GDE3 is a transmembrane GPI-specific phospholipase C that sheds the urokinase receptor (uPAR) from the cell surface resulting in loss of uPAR function in breast cancer cells and reduced tumor growth.

    Pre-transition effects mediate forces of assembly between transmembrane proteins

    Shachi Katira et al.
    A general mechanism for how powerful forces of assembly and protein mobility can emerge from phase transitions is established.

    Cortical regulation of cell size by a sizer cdr2p

    Kally Z Pan et al.
    It is shown that fission yeast cells sense their size by measuring their surface area through a membrane-associated sizer protein cdr2p.

    Lipoprotein DolP supports proper folding of BamA in the bacterial outer membrane promoting fitness upon envelope stress

    David Ranava et al.
    The envelope stress factor DolP associates with the outer membrane protein assembly machinery and supports proper folding and functioning of BamA contributing to preserve envelope integrity.

    Insights into herpesvirus assembly from the structure of the pUL7:pUL51 complex

    Benjamin G Butt et al.
    A conserved viral protein complex that promotes membrane wrapping of nascent herpesvirus particles shows structural similarity to cellular membrane-remodelling proteins, suggesting functional mimicry.

    Meiotic cellular rejuvenation is coupled to nuclear remodeling in budding yeast

    Grant A King et al.
    A meiotic nuclear remodeling event mediates cellular rejuvenation through elimination of senescence factors.

    An ESCRT-LEM protein surveillance system is poised to directly monitor the nuclear envelope and nuclear transport system

    David J Thaller et al.
    ESCRT-driven mechanisms that sense and seal holes in the nuclear membranes directly monitor the nuclear transport system and the exposure of the inner nuclear membrane.

    Identification of a lipid scrambling domain in ANO6/TMEM16F

    Kuai Yu et al.
    The amino acids that are necessary for phospholipid scrambling by ANO6/TMEM16F can, via domain swapping, confer scrambling activity to the chloride ion channel ANO1 that normally does not scramble phospholipids.

    Competitive coordination of the dual roles of the Hedgehog co-receptor in homophilic adhesion and signal reception

    Shu Yang et al.
    The apparently incompatible functions of the Hedgehog co-receptor Ihog in homophilic adhesion and ligand binding cooperate in Hh transport and reception.

    Site-directed MT1-MMP trafficking and surface insertion regulate AChR clustering and remodeling at developing NMJs

    Zora Chui-Kuen Chan et al.
    Postsynaptic MT1-MMP serves as a molecular switch to synaptogenesis by clearing the surrounding ECM environment that allows effective deposition of nerve-derived synaptogenic factors to induce postsynaptic differentiation at developing NMJs.
