    Stochastic yield catastrophes and robustness in self-assembly

    Florian M Gartner et al.
    Fluctuations in the availability of particles for binding can completely jeopardize yield in heterogeneous self-assembly.

    Zebrafish embryonic explants undergo genetically encoded self-assembly

    Alexandra Schauer et al.
    Blastoderm tissue organization and patterning in zebrafish explants is driven by a genetically encoded and controlled self-assembly mechanism, rather than a bonafide self-organization mechanism.

    De novo centriole formation in human cells is error-prone and does not require SAS-6 self-assembly

    Won-Jing Wang et al.
    Canonical centriole duplication is much less prone to errors than de novo synthesis of centrioles, but neither depends on self-oligomerization of the centriole protein SAS-6.

    The Peptidisc, a simple method for stabilizing membrane proteins in detergent-free solution

    Michael Luke Carlson et al.
    A simple, yet elegant method for robust self-assembly of diverse membrane proteins into soluble peptide nanoparticles for their structural and functional analysis in detergent-free solutions.

    The innate immune sensor IFI16 recognizes foreign DNA in the nucleus by scanning along the duplex

    Sarah A Stratmann et al.
    The scanning-assisted clustering mechanism of IFI16 not only allows efficient assembly on exposed foreign-dsDNA, but also suppresses the engagement of chromatinized self-dsDNA.

    Symmetric exchange of multi-protein building blocks between stationary focal adhesions and the cytosol

    Jan-Erik Hoffmann et al.
    In the cytosol, the proteins constituting cell-matrix adhesion sites form multi-protein building blocks which enter and leave these sites unaltered, thereby contributing to their rapid and correct self-assembly.

    Single-molecule analysis reveals self assembly and nanoscale segregation of two distinct cavin subcomplexes on caveolae

    Yann Gambin et al.
    New insights into the assembly and membrane interactions of the caveolar coat complex reveal the reversible association/dissociation of distinct subcomplexes onto the membrane, which differs from the assembly/disassembly of clathrin-coated pits.

    A new class of disordered elements controls DNA replication through initiator self-assembly

    Matthew W Parker et al.
    DNA replication initiation proteins contain a disordered domain that impacts each stage of their function, from chromatin recruitment and initiator co-assembly to the subsequent displacement of the factors from chromatin.

    Length regulation of multiple flagella that self-assemble from a shared pool of components

    Thomas G Fai et al.
    In the microbe Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a disassembly rate which depends on flagellar length provides an effective method to regulate the length of its two flagella.

    Electrostatic lateral interactions drive ESCRT-III heteropolymer assembly

    Sudeep Banjade et al.
    ESCRT-III heteropolymers utilize non-specific lateral electrostatic interactions to recognize one another, which may enable the polymers to slide along one another and adapt to different curvatures.
