    The transcription factor Hey and nuclear lamins specify and maintain cell identity

    Naama Flint Brodsly et al.
    Hey together with LaminC continuously supervise nuclear organisation and differentiated enterocyte identity, a regulation that is lost upon ageing, resulting in loss of gut homeostasis.

    LAP2alpha maintains a mobile and low assembly state of A-type lamins in the nuclear interior

    Nana Naetar et al.
    The lamin A/C binding protein LAP2α inhibits formation of higher order lamin structures in the nuclear interior in a lamin A/C-phosphorylation-independent manner, thereby regulating chromatin mobility.

    The LINC complex transmits integrin-dependent tension to the nuclear lamina and represses epidermal differentiation

    Emma Carley et al.
    Forces stemming from cell-matrix adhesions, but not cell-cell adhesions, are directly transmitted to the nuclear lamina to regulate epidermal cell fate.

    The Lamin B receptor is essential for cholesterol synthesis and perturbed by disease-causing mutations

    Pei-Ling Tsai et al.
    Lamin B receptor may provide a long-sought model system enabling unprecedented studies of protein quality control in the nuclear envelope of mammalian cells.

    Actin assembly ruptures the nuclear envelope by prying the lamina away from nuclear pores and nuclear membranes in starfish oocytes

    Natalia Wesolowska et al.
    Combined light and electron microscopy reveals a new function for Arp2/3-mediated actin assembly in nuclear envelope rupture, which leads to a separation of nuclear membranes and pores from the lamina.

    H3K9me2 orchestrates inheritance of spatial positioning of peripheral heterochromatin through mitosis

    Andrey Poleshko et al.
    The histone modification H3K9me2 marks peripheral heterochromatin and ensures positional information is safeguarded through cell division such that individual lamina-associated domains are re-established at the nuclear periphery in daughter nuclei.

    PLK-1 promotes the merger of the parental genome into a single nucleus by triggering lamina disassembly

    Griselda Velez-Aguilera et al.
    The polo-like kinase (Plk1) phophorylates the C. elegans lamin LMN-1 to promote timely lamina disassembly, which is essential for the merging of the parental chromosomes at the beginning of life.

    Mesoscale phase separation of chromatin in the nucleus

    Gaurav Bajpai et al.
    Computer simulations show transitions between novel types of chromatin organization (peripheral, central, conventional) depending on chromatin interactions with itself, the lamin and nuclear hydration, measured in recent experiments.

    The β-alanine transporter BalaT is required for visual neurotransmission in Drosophila

    Yongchao Han et al.
    BalaT-dependent β-alanine trafficking pathway in retinal pigment cells is critical for maintaining synaptic transmission of photoreceptor neurons in Drosophila.

    Novel origin of lamin-derived cytoplasmic intermediate filaments in tardigrades

    Lars Hering et al.
    A newly discovered cytoplasmic intermediate filament in water bears may help these animals to resist extreme environmental conditions.
