    Apical targeting of the formin Diaphanous in Drosophila tubular epithelia

    Tal Rousso et al.
    Synergistic interactions with PI(4,5)P2 and activated Rho1, which are enriched at the apical membrane of tubular organs, facilitate tight apical targeting of the formin Diaphanous.

    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.

    MYBL2 is a sub-haploinsufficient tumor suppressor gene in myeloid malignancy

    Stefan Heinrichs et al.
    Reduced expression of MYBL2 contributes to malignancies of the blood by permitting uncontrolled expansion of blood cell progenitors, implying a tumor suppressor function for this gene.

    Integrative genomic analysis of the human immune response to influenza vaccination

    Luis M Franco et al.
    By comparing gene expression in people before and after they received the influenza vaccine, researchers were able to identify genes that contribute to differences in individual responses to vaccination.
  1. Point of View: A recipe for mediocrity and disaster, in five axioms

    Henry R Bourne
    Biomedical research in the US will become unsustainable unless scientists and research institutions start to question certain assumptions they have long taken for granted.

    Direct live imaging of cell–cell protein transfer by transient outer membrane fusion in Myxococcus xanthus

    Adrien Ducret et al.
    Physical contact between two Myxococcus xanthus cells is sufficient to fuse their outer membrane transiently and exchange outer membrane proteins and lipids at high efficiency.

    Structural analysis of autoinhibition in the Ras-specific exchange factor RasGRP1

    Jeffrey S Iwig et al.
    A key activator of Ras signaling adopts an autoinhibited, dimeric conformation that is activated by membrane and calcium binding.

    Functional genomic characterization of neoblast-like stem cells in larval Schistosoma mansoni

    Bo Wang et al.
    Cells that give rise to the infectious form of parasitic flatworms called schistosomes show similar patterns of gene expression to stem cells in free-living flatworms.

    The ER–Golgi intermediate compartment is a key membrane source for the LC3 lipidation step of autophagosome biogenesis

    Liang Ge et al.
    A cell-free biochemical assay for protein lipidation identifies the ER–Golgi intermediate compartment as a key early station in the formation of an autophagosome.

    Mammalian genes induce partially reprogrammed pluripotent stem cells in non-mammalian vertebrate and invertebrate species

    Ricardo Antonio Rosselló et al.
    Cells from vertebrate and invertebrate model systems can be reprogrammed into stem-like cells using mouse genes.
