    Cytotoxic activities of CD8+ T cells collaborate with macrophages to protect against blood-stage murine malaria

    Takashi Imai et al.
    The cytotoxicity exerted by CD8+ T cells against parasitized erythroblasts helps to protect against blood-stage malaria by making parasitized cells susceptible to phagocytosis.

    Macrophages restrict the nephrogenic field and promote endothelial connections during kidney development

    David AD Munro et al.
    Embryonic macrophages encourage early kidney development, interact with developing renal blood vessels, are enriched for mRNAs linked to vascular development, and promote endothelial cross-connections.

    Differential TAM receptor–ligand–phospholipid interactions delimit differential TAM bioactivities

    Erin D Lew et al.
    Signaling by TAM receptor tyrosine kinases requires the coincident engagement of a TAM ligand with both its receptor and the phospholipid phosphatidylserine.

    Supporting cells remove and replace sensory receptor hair cells in a balance organ of adult mice

    Stephanie A Bucks et al.
    Cell fate-mapping with genetically-modified mouse models and cellular markers demonstrates that sensory hair cells in the vestibular portion of the inner ear are a dynamic population in adult mice that undergo cell death and replacement under normal conditions.

    Semen amyloids participate in spermatozoa selection and clearance

    Nadia R Roan et al.
    Ex vivo characterization of the interaction of human sperm with semen factors reveals that semen amyloids, previously discovered due to their ability to enhance HIV infection, serve a physiological function by promoting disposal of the defective sperm.

    Francisella tularensis enters a double membraned compartment following cell-cell transfer

    Shaun P Steele et al.
    Francisella tularensis spreads from cell to cell when macrophages engulf small portions of infected cells upon cell contact, forming distinctive a double membraned endosome containing multiple bacteria per individual vacuole.

    Host-induced spermidine production in motile Pseudomonas aeruginosa triggers phagocytic uptake

    Sebastian Felgner et al.
    Upon host cell contact, motile but not non-motile Pseudomonas aeruginosa exhibit a change in their gene expression program that includes the expression of spermidine, which triggers motility-dependent phagocytosis.

    Fibrillar Aβ triggers microglial proteome alterations and dysfunction in Alzheimer mouse models

    Laura Sebastian Monasor et al.
    APPPS1 microglia express disease-associated proteomic signatures of Alzheimer's disease earlier, compared to the APP-KI, and these differences correlate with the levels of fibrillar Aβ and impaired microglial phagocytic function.

    Chronic ethanol consumption compromises neutrophil function in acute pulmonary Aspergillus fumigatus infection

    Nathalia Luisa Sousa de Oliveira Malacco et al.
    Cell biology analysis demonstrated for the first time the effect of chronic ethanol consumption in neutrophil impaired migration by CXCR2 downregulation and neutrophil function during acute Aspergillus fumigatus infection.
