    Secondary ossification center induces and protects growth plate structure

    Meng Xie et al.
    The principle underlying the appearance of the growth plate, an organ responsible for longitudinal growth, has implications for various cartilage pathologies including growth abnormalities in children, trauma and osteoarthritis.

    KATANIN-dependent mechanical properties of the stigmatic cell wall mediate the pollen tube path in Arabidopsis

    Lucie Riglet et al.
    KATANIN1 in stigma papilla cells prevents disordered pollen tube growth and straightens pollen tube direction, allowing the pollen tube to find its correct path to the underlying female tissues.

    Mouse T cell priming is enhanced by maturation-dependent stiffening of the dendritic cell cortex

    Daniel Blumenthal et al.
    The dendritic cell actin cytoskeleton provides a platform for T cell mechanosensing, delivering novel biophysical cues that serve as costimulatory signals for T cell activation.

    The axonal actin-spectrin lattice acts as a tension buffering shock absorber

    Sushil Dubey et al.
    A linear array of spectrin tetramers imparts mechanical stability to axons by allowing spectrin domains to unfold reversibly when an axon is stretched, thereby acting as tension buffers.

    High-throughput, single-particle tracking reveals nested membrane domains that dictate KRasG12D diffusion and trafficking

    Yerim Lee et al.
    The nanoscopic landscape of the membrane has a direct impact on the spatiotemporal, and likely also the signaling, dynamics of Ras proteins.

    Spatiotemporal dynamics of multi-vesicular release is determined by heterogeneity of release sites within central synapses

    Dario Maschi, Vitaly A Klyachko
    Release site heterogeneity represents a previously unknown level of structural and functional organization within individual active zones in central synapses, which determines the spatiotemporal dynamics of multi-vesicular release.

    RIM-BP2 primes synaptic vesicles via recruitment of Munc13-1 at hippocampal mossy fiber synapses

    Marisa M Brockmann et al.
    The active zone scaffold protein RIM-BP2 performs distinct functions in vesicle release at two hippocampal synapses, providing insights on how synapses express diversity in release properties.

    Nanoscale organization of rotavirus replication machineries

    Yasel Garcés Suárez et al.
    Super-resolution microscopy reveals, at nanometric-scale, the highly organized protein structure of viroplasms, the viral factories used by rotavirus to replicate its genome and assemble new viral particles.

    Nanoresolution real-time 3D orbital tracking for studying mitochondrial trafficking in vertebrate axons in vivo

    Fabian Wehnekamp et al.
    The ability to follow single objects in 3D in a living organism with high spatiotemporal resolution opens new possibilities for quantitative biophysical studies of complex systems in their physiological context.

    ADAM17-dependent signaling is required for oncogenic human papillomavirus entry platform assembly

    Snježana Mikuličić et al.
    ADAM17 is a key player in the non-canonical endocytosis pathway that is used by oncogenic papillomaviruses as it allows virus/receptor platform assembly by activation of the ERK1/2 signaling pathway.
