    Micron-scale geometrical features of microtubules as regulators of microtubule organization

    Nandini Mani et al.
    Micron-scale geometrical features of individual microtubule polymers and polymer networks encode information that guides the self-organization of microtubules into specialized structures for diverse cellular functions such as cell division and signaling in eukaryotic cells.

    Erythrocyte CD55 mediates the internalization of Plasmodium falciparum parasites

    Bikash Shakya et al.
    The strain-transcendent receptor CD55 plays a distinct functional role relative to other known receptors for Plasmodium falciparum invasion of human erythrocytes, indicating it may present a vulnerable target for intervention.

    Short and long sleeping mutants reveal links between sleep and macroautophagy

    Joseph L Bedont et al.
    Unbiased and targeted genetic approaches reveal a link between sleep and autophagy that could be relevant for sleep function, and for understanding pathological consequences of chronic sleep loss.

    Tight nanoscale clustering of Fcγ receptors using DNA origami promotes phagocytosis

    Nadja Kern et al.
    Manipulating nanoscale spacing of Fcγ receptors using DNA origami demonstrates that ligand clustering regulates receptor phosphorylation and phagocytosis.

    HIV-1 uncoating by release of viral cDNA from capsid-like structures in the nucleus of infected cells

    Thorsten G Müller et al.
    HIV-1 capsids enter the host cell nucleus, where they are partially disrupted to release the viral genome upon completion of reverse transcription.

    Combinatorial deployment of F-actin regulators to build complex 3D actin structures in vivo

    Yi Xie et al.
    Phasic microfilament behaviors of the growth and stabilization of cortical actin caps are driven by distinct combinations of actin regulatory proteins, which display features of a deep competition for G-actin.

    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.

    Channel nuclear pore complex subunits are required for transposon silencing in Drosophila

    Marzia Munafò et al.
    By linking export and licensing of a piRNA precursor transcript, channel nuclear pore complex subunits Nup54 and Nup58 are specifically required to silence transposons in the Drosophila ovary.

    Toxoplasma TgATG9 is critical for autophagy and long-term persistence in tissue cysts

    David Smith et al.
    ATG9-dependent autophagy is an essential pathway for long-term survival within the cyst in the parasite Toxoplasma gondii and could be exploited in future studies seeking interventions against persistent Toxoplasma infection.
