    The Rab6-regulated KIF1C kinesin motor domain contributes to Golgi organization

    Peter L Lee et al.
    Rab6A binds directly to both the C-terminus and the N-terminal motor domain of the kinesin KIF1C to regulate vesicle motility and Golgi organization.

    A Ras-like domain in the light intermediate chain bridges the dynein motor to a cargo-binding region

    Courtney M Schroeder et al.
    The dynein light intermediate chain is a member of the G protein superfamily and links the motor to several intracellular cargo adaptors.

    Kinesin Kip2 enhances microtubule growth in vitro through length-dependent feedback on polymerization and catastrophe

    Anneke Hibbel et al.
    The budding yeast kinesin Kip2 is a polymerase that uses its processive motility in a positive feedback loop to promote microtubule growth.

    Geometry of antiparallel microtubule bundles regulates relative sliding and stalling by PRC1 and Kif4A

    Sithara Wijeratne, Radhika Subramanian
    Geometrical features of microtubule arrays regulate the collective activity of motor and non-motor proteins.

    A novel isoform of MAP4 organises the paraxial microtubule array required for muscle cell differentiation

    Binyam Mogessie et al.
    oMAP4 is a microtubule crosslinker that restricts motor driven microtubule motility and cooperates with microtubule motors in the establishment of paraxial microtubule arrangements in differentiating muscle cells.

    Restraint of presynaptic protein levels by Wnd/DLK signaling mediates synaptic defects associated with the kinesin-3 motor Unc-104

    Jiaxing Li et al.
    Synaptic defects previously attributed to loss of kinesin function are found to be mediated by the Wnd/DLK axonal injury signaling pathway, which restrains the total levels of presynaptic proteins in response to their accumulation.

    Small molecule-mediated refolding and activation of myosin motor function

    Michael B Radke et al.
    The small molecule EMD 57033 is one of a new class of pharmacological chaperones that stabilize, enhance the activity of, and correct stress-induced misfolding of myosin proteins.

    Transsynaptic interactions between IgSF proteins DIP-α and Dpr10 are required for motor neuron targeting specificity

    James Ashley et al.
    Synaptic partner recognition in the Drosophila neuromuscular circuit requires interactions between the Dpr and DIP subfamilies of immunoglobulin cell-surface proteins.

    Regulation of human mTOR complexes by DEPTOR

    Matthias Wälchli et al.
    Structural and functional analysis reveals the mechanistic basis for mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR)-dependent roles of DEP domain-containing mTOR interacting protein (DEPTOR) in cancer and metabolic regulation.

    Suppression of C9orf72 RNA repeat-induced neurotoxicity by the ALS-associated RNA-binding protein Zfp106

    Barbara Celona et al.
    Zfp106 functions as an RNA binding protein, binds directly to GGGGCC RNA repeats, is required in motor neurons to prevent ALS-like neurodegeneration in mice, and can suppress neurotoxicity in an established fly model of ALS.
