    Tunable molecular tension sensors reveal extension-based control of vinculin loading

    Andrew S LaCroix et al.
    A quantitative understanding of molecular tension sensor function enables the production of unique sensors with desired mechanical properties as well as the ability to distinguish between protein force and protein deformation in mechanosensitive processes.

    Pre-transition effects mediate forces of assembly between transmembrane proteins

    Shachi Katira et al.
    A general mechanism for how powerful forces of assembly and protein mobility can emerge from phase transitions is established.

    ERK8 is a negative regulator of O-GalNAc glycosylation and cell migration

    Joanne Chia et al.
    The ERK8 kinase blocks the export of glycosyl-tranferases from the Golgi to the endoplasmic reticulum, and thus subsequent O-glycosylation of proteins that otherwise enhance cell motility and tissue invasion.

    A novel GTP-binding protein–adaptor protein complex responsible for export of Vangl2 from the trans Golgi network

    Yusong Guo et al.
    The ability of epithelial cells to distinguish between domains on opposing cell surfaces within a tissue, a property known as planar cell polarity, relies on proteins and protein complexes directing the traffic of signaling proteins to specific locations on the cell surface membrane.

    Matrin 3-dependent neurotoxicity is modified by nucleic acid binding and nucleocytoplasmic localization

    Ahmed M Malik et al.
    The deposition of Matrin 3, a DNA/RNA binding protein implicated in ALS and FTD, results in neurodegeneration dependent upon its localization, self-association, and ability to bind nucleic acids.

    TRiC’s tricks inhibit huntingtin aggregation

    Sarah H Shahmoradian et al.
    Cryo-electron tomography reveals how a chaperone protein called TRiC reduces the ability of pathogenic mutant huntingtin proteins to form aggregates.

    α8β1 integrin regulates nutrient absorption through an Mfge8-PTEN dependent mechanism

    Amin Khalifeh-Soltani et al.
    The milk protein Mfge8 promotes fat uptake and slows gastrointestinal motility to optimize nutrient absorption.
