    Malaria parasite LIMP protein regulates sporozoite gliding motility and infectivity in mosquito and mammalian hosts

    Jorge M Santos et al.
    A small surface protein regulates gliding motility and host cell invasion by the sporozoite stage of the malaria parasite.

    Physical determinants of vesicle mobility and supply at a central synapse

    Jason Seth Rothman et al.
    Hydrodynamic and steric interactions slow vesicle mobility and are predicted to ultimately limit vesicle supply to the active zone during sustained high-frequency signalling at a central synapse.

    Intraflagellar transport drives flagellar surface motility

    Sheng Min Shih et al.
    The transport of proteins along flagellar microtubules generates the force that enables flagella to propel cells across surfaces.

    Longitudinal analysis of Plasmodium sporozoite motility in the dermis reveals component of blood vessel recognition

    Christine S Hopp et al.
    Malaria parasites enter the host via the skin, where they are inoculated by an infected mosquito as it probes for blood: the inoculation site is a bottleneck for the parasite and the only time when the parasite is extracellular for more than a few minutes, thus possibly presenting the best opportunity for antibody-mediated inhibition of infection.

    Kinesin motility is driven by subdomain dynamics

    Wonmuk Hwang et al.
    The motor protein kinesin utilizes its fuel molecule by active and concerted motions of its subdomains, while it rapidly interacts with the microtubule track by forming a wet and dynamic interface.

    Intermittent Ca2+ signals mediated by Orai1 regulate basal T cell motility

    Tobias X Dong et al.
    Orai1 channels activate intermittently in motile T cells, generating calcium transients, detected by a novel genetically encoded indicator and inducing pauses that favor antigen scanning.

    Motility precedes egress of malaria parasites from oocysts

    Dennis Klug, Friedrich Frischknecht
    A surface protein triggers intra-oocyst motility of Plasmodium sporozoites to ensure parasite egress from oocysts.

    Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    Unlike all other mammals studied to date, the age-specific risk of mortality for naked mole-rats did not increase over decades of life, identifying this species as a non-aging mammal.

    Developmental adaptations of trypanosome motility to the tsetse fly host environments unravel a multifaceted in vivo microswimmer system

    Sarah Schuster et al.
    Trypanosome development within the transmitting tsetse fly reveals essential adaptations of microbial motility to diverse physical microenvironments.
