    A clathrin coat assembly role for the muniscin protein central linker revealed by TALEN-mediated gene editing

    Perunthottathu K Umasankar et al.
    The muniscin protein FCHO1 interacts with, and activates, the adapter protein-2 complex (AP-2) to promote the assembly of clathrin-coated vesicles.

    A facile approach for the in vitro assembly of multimeric membrane transport proteins

    Erika A Riederer et al.
    Methodology for the in vitro assembly of multimeric membrane proteins and the utility of the approach for generating heteromeric variants of homo-multimeric proteins is described.

    Protein-based condensation mechanisms drive the assembly of RNA-rich P granules

    Helen Schmidt et al.
    P granule assembly depends in part on protein-protein interactions that drive condensation independent of RNA.

    Dynamic early clusters of nodal proteins contribute to node of Ranvier assembly during myelination of peripheral neurons

    Elise LV Malavasi et al.
    Dynamic early clusters of nodal proteins in peripheral nerves represent a neurofascin-dependent developmental stage of node assembly during myelination that precedes heminode formation.

    Stable G protein-effector complexes in striatal neurons: mechanism of assembly and role in neurotransmitter signaling

    Keqiang Xie et al.
    A G protein in striatal neurons forms preassembled complexes with its downstream enzyme, adenylyl cyclase, which has implications for the pathophysiology of movement disorders.

    Lamellipodin promotes actin assembly by clustering Ena/VASP proteins and tethering them to actin filaments

    Scott D Hansen, R Dyche Mullins
    Lamellipodin, an important regulator of cytoskeletal and assembly cell migration, enhances the activity of Ena/VASP family actin polymerases by clustering them on leading-edge membranes and tethering them to actin filaments.

    The structure of the COPII transport-vesicle coat assembled on membranes

    Giulia Zanetti et al.
    A structure of the complete, membrane bound, COPII coat solved by sub-tomogram averaging reveals the arrangement of all protein subunits on the membrane and suggests a mechanism for coating heterogeneously-shaped carriers.

    La-related protein 1 (LARP1) binds the mRNA cap, blocking eIF4F assembly on TOP mRNAs

    Roni M Lahr et al.
    La-related protein 1 specifically and directly binds the 5' cap and first nucleotide of mRNAs encoding ribosomal proteins and translation factors, inhibiting the assembly of translation initiation factors on these messages and therefore their translation.

    Mechanism of B-box 2 domain-mediated higher-order assembly of the retroviral restriction factor TRIM5α

    Jonathan M Wagner et al.
    Higher-order assembly enables and links pathogen recognition and downstream steps in the TRIM5-mediated anti-HIV response.
