    Kinetics of HIV-1 capsid uncoating revealed by single-molecule analysis

    Chantal L Márquez et al.
    Disassembly of the HIV-1 capsid is a catastrophic process, whereby initiation and propagation can be controlled independently by molecules that bind to different features of the capsid lattice.

    Single-molecule observation of DNA compaction by meiotic protein SYCP3

    Johanna L Syrjänen et al.
    Building on previous work (Syrjänen, Pellegrini, & Davies, 2014), it is shown that SYCP3 contributes to the architecture of meiotic chromosomes through local bridging interactions that result in large-scale compaction of the chromosome axis.

    Single-molecule turnover dynamics of actin and membrane coat proteins in clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Michael M Lacy et al.
    The main proteins of clathrin-mediated endocytosis bind and unbind rapidly, continuously turning over about five times during the formation of an endocytic vesicle in yeast.

    Single-molecule visualization of fast polymerase turnover in the bacterial replisome

    Jacob S Lewis et al.
    The canonical model that the bacterial replisome tightly holds on to its polymerases is challenged by the visualization of rapid holoenzyme exchange, both in vitro and in vivo.

    Single-molecule observation of ATP-independent SSB displacement by RecO in Deinococcus radiodurans

    Jihee Hwang et al.
    RecO efficiently displaces SSB from ssDNA without consuming ATPs using its two DNA-binding sites, even though SSB binds to ssDNA approximately 300 times more strongly than RecO does.

    Single-molecule force spectroscopy of protein-membrane interactions

    Lu Ma et al.
    A high-resolution method to quantify interactions between lipid bilayers and single proteins under controlled load is presented and applied to key proteins involved in membrane fusion and formation and maintenance of membrane contact sites.

    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.

    Mapping translation 'hot-spots' in live cells by tracking single molecules of mRNA and ribosomes

    Zachary B Katz et al.
    A method that involves simultaneous tracking of individual mRNAs and their associated ribosomes can be used to determine when and where individual molecules get translated in living cells.

    Single-molecule tracking in live cells reveals distinct target-search strategies of transcription factors in the nucleus

    Ignacio Izeddin et al.
    While the transcription factor c-Myc explores the space in the nucleus in an unrestricted manner, the elongation factor P-TEFb's sampling of the nucleus is constrained to a complex domain with fractal characteristics.

    Single-molecule functional anatomy of endogenous HER2-HER3 heterodimers

    Byoungsan Choi et al.
    Single-molecule immunoprecipitation method reveals that the high catalytic rate and multi-tasking capability make a concerted contribution to the strong signaling potency of the HER2-HER3 heterodimers.
