    Cryo-EM structures of S-OPA1 reveal its interactions with membrane and changes upon nucleotide binding

    Danyang Zhang et al.
    GTP binding induces rearrangement of S-OPA1 assembly on membrane and thus triggers membrane remodeling with reduced curvature.

    VCP-dependent muscle degeneration is linked to defects in a dynamic tubular lysosomal network in vivo

    Alyssa E Johnson et al.
    The AAA-ATPase VCP sustains sarcoplasmic proteostasis, in part, by controlling autophagosome-lysosome fusion and the integrity of a dynamic tubular lysosomal network.

    General principles for the formation and proliferation of a wall-free (L-form) state in bacteria

    Romain Mercier et al.
    A wide range of bacterial species can switch into a cell wall-free state that does not require the FtsZ-based division machinery to proliferate.

    Magnetothermal genetic deep brain stimulation of motor behaviors in awake, freely moving mice

    Rahul Munshi et al.
    Magnetothermal neuromodulation providing quick, tetherless, precise on and off switching of neurons deep in the brain of freely moving animals is orthogonal to optogenetics and a breakthrough in remote modulation techniques.

    Ubiquitous macropinocytosis in anthozoans

    Philippe Ganot et al.
    Macropinocytosis, the process of non-specific endocytosis, is a major gateway for large volumes of surrounding medium and nanoparticles to coral cells.

    Type XVII collagen coordinates proliferation in the interfollicular epidermis

    Mika Watanabe et al.
    Type XVII collagen, a transmembranous protein in basal keratinocytes, suppresses interfollicular epidermal proliferation in neonatal and aged skin, and helps rejuvenate epidermis.

    Microglial calcium signaling is attuned to neuronal activity in awake mice

    Anthony D Umpierre et al.
    Microglial processes engage calcium signaling in response to hyper- or hypo-active shifts in neuronal activity.

    A minimal self-organisation model of the Golgi apparatus

    Quentin Vagne et al.
    An unbiased model for the self-organisation of the Golgi apparatus displays either anterograde vesicular transport or cisternal maturation depending on ratios of budding, fusion and biochemical conversion rates.

    Dynamic clustering of dynamin-amphiphysin helices regulates membrane constriction and fission coupled with GTP hydrolysis

    Tetsuya Takeda et al.
    A new approach using combination of electron microscopy (EM) and high-speed atomic force microscopy (HS-AFM) clearly demonstrates dynamics of dynamin-amphiphysin complexes during membrane constriction and fission suggesting a novel 'clusterase' model of the dynamin-mediated membrane fission.

    Clathrin modulates vesicle scission, but not invagination shape, in yeast endocytosis

    Wanda Kukulski et al.
    Building on previous work (Picco et al., 2015), we use a hybrid imaging approach to address the role of clathrin during endocytosis: we find that it has no role in shaping or elongating membrane invaginations, but it does contribute to the regularity of vesicle scission.
