    Exportin Crm1 is repurposed as a docking protein to generate microtubule organizing centers at the nuclear pore

    Xun X Bao et al.
    Microtubule nucleation from the nuclear envelope in fission yeast involves repurposing of nuclear export proteins for a non-export-related function, docking cytoplasmic proteins at nuclear pore complexes.

    How lamina-associated polypeptide 1 (LAP1) activates Torsin

    Brian A Sosa et al.
    LAP1 adopts an AAA+ like fold that, while unable to bind nucleotide, can enhance ATPase activity in the neighboring TorsinA protomer in an unusual heterohexameric ring, via an arginine finger.

    A molecular mechanism for LINC complex branching by structurally diverse SUN-KASH 6:6 assemblies

    Manickam Gurusaran, Owen Richard Davies
    The LINC complex has a core 6:6 structure in which KASH-binding induces head-to-head interactions between SUN trimers, suggesting force transduction between cytoskeletal and nuclear components through branched LINC complex networks.

    Efficient protein targeting to the inner nuclear membrane requires Atlastin-dependent maintenance of ER topology

    Sumit Pawar et al.
    Efficient targeting of membrane proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to the inner nuclear membrane depends on GTP hydrolysis by Atlastin GTPases and their function in maintaining an interconnected topology of the ER network.

    The Nesprin-1/-2 ortholog ANC-1 regulates organelle positioning in C. elegans independently from its KASH or actin-binding domains

    Hongyan Hao et al.
    The giant KASH protein ANC-1 maintains the integrity of the cytoplasm to anchor nuclei, ER, and other organelles within the cell.

    Selective clearance of the inner nuclear membrane protein emerin by vesicular transport during ER stress

    Abigail Buchwalter et al.
    Emerin, a protein that plays key roles in nuclear organization, can be dynamically degraded in response to environmental stimuli such as ER stress.

    HIV-1 nuclear import in macrophages is regulated by CPSF6-capsid interactions at the nuclear pore complex

    David Alejandro Bejarano et al.
    Interaction of HIV capsids with the cellular protein cleavage-and-polyadenylation factor 6 at the inner side of nuclear pores promotes nuclear entry of the viral replication complex in primary human macrophages.

    Defining the function of OmpA in the Rcs stress response

    Kilian Dekoninck et al.
    In vivo and in vitro approaches uncover a new function for the β-barrel OmpA and reveal how it interacts with the stress sensor lipoprotein RcsF.

    Architecture and dynamics of the autophagic phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex

    Sulochanadevi Baskaran et al.
    The first three-dimensional structure of the PI3KC3 complex I, which is involved in autophagy, provides a framework for understanding the allosteric regulation of lipid kinase activity.

    Cortical encoding of acoustic and linguistic rhythms in spoken narratives

    Cheng Luo, Nai Ding
    In the processing of spoken narratives, bottom-up acoustic cues and top-down linguistic knowledge separately contribute to neural construction of linguistic units.
