    TORC2-dependent protein kinase Ypk1 phosphorylates ceramide synthase to stimulate synthesis of complex sphingolipids

    Alexander Muir et al.
    TORC2-Ypk1 signaling upregulates flux through the sphingolipid pathway not only by increasing the supply of long-chain base precursors, but also by increasing their use in synthesizing complex sphingolipids.

    Sequence co-evolution gives 3D contacts and structures of protein complexes

    Thomas A Hopf et al.
    Interactions in protein complexes can be predicted from evolutionary information from genomic sequences.

    Drep-2 is a novel synaptic protein important for learning and memory

    Till F M Andlauer et al.
    Drep-2 is the first representative of the evolutionary conserved CIDE-N protein family found at synapses and is required for associative learning by functionally intersecting with metabotropic signaling.

    Architecture and dynamics of the autophagic phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex

    Sulochanadevi Baskaran et al.
    The first three-dimensional structure of the PI3KC3 complex I, which is involved in autophagy, provides a framework for understanding the allosteric regulation of lipid kinase activity.

    Sequential conformational rearrangements in flavivirus membrane fusion

    Luke H Chao et al.
    The West Nile Virus envelope protein catalyzes membrane fusion through low-pH induced conformational rearrangement, with a rate determined by the formation of two trimeric complexes at the contact zone between the virus and target membrane.

    Autoinhibition of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) and activation by soluble inositol hexakisphosphate

    Qi Wang et al.
    A key B-cell tyrosine kinase that adopts an autoinhibited conformation, and can be activated by either membrane recruitment or soluble inositol hexakisphosphates in solution.

    The coordinated action of the MVB pathway and autophagy ensures cell survival during starvation

    Martin Müller et al.
    A catabolic cascade is essential to enter a stable G1/G0 quiescent state and survive extended periods of starvation.

    Functional topography of the human entorhinal cortex

    Tobias Navarro Schröder et al.
    By employing high-field fMRI and taking advantage of well-known global connectivity fingerprints and sensitivity to spatial and non-spatial information, it is shown that the entorhinal cortex is primarily divided into anterior and posterior subregions.

    Structural evidence for Scc4-dependent localization of cohesin loading

    Stephen M Hinshaw et al.
    Cohesin loading at centromeres depends on a conserved surface cluster of amino-acid residues on the cohesin loading protein, Scc4.

    Down-regulation of TORC2-Ypk1 signaling promotes MAPK-independent survival under hyperosmotic stress

    Alexander Muir et al.
    Building on previous work (Muir et al., 2014), we validate the utility of a screen for new protein kinase substrates and define the underlying molecular basis of a new mechanism for responding to hypertonic conditions.
