    The architecture of EMC reveals a path for membrane protein insertion

    John P O'Donnell et al.
    Structural and biochemical analysis of an abundant and conserved protein complex called EMC shows how it is likely to insert nascent membrane proteins into the endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

    MagC, magnetic collection of ultrathin sections for volumetric correlative light and electron microscopy

    Thomas Templier
    The augmentation of resin-embedded sample blocks with magnetic resin allows remote actuation of ultrathin sections and deposition at high packing density onto silicon wafers for correlative light and electron microscopy.

    An expanded allosteric network in PTP1B by multitemperature crystallography, fragment screening, and covalent tethering

    Daniel A Keedy et al.
    By measuring how multiple conformations shift in response to temperature, a new allosteric binding site is discovered for the phosphatase PTP1B.

    Neural and computational processes underlying dynamic changes in self-esteem

    Geert-Jan Will et al.
    Self-esteem, the value that people ascribe to the self, is represented in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex and dynamically updated when people learn how others value them.

    Microtubule-dependent ribosome localization in C. elegans neurons

    Kentaro Noma et al.
    The utility of split GFP for tissue-specific visualization of ribosomes in live Caenorhabditis elegans demonstrates the link between ribosomes and microtubules.

    Subthalamic nucleus gamma activity increases not only during movement but also during movement inhibition

    Petra Fischer et al.
    Sudden stopping of rhythmic movement is associated with a pronounced increase of 60-90 Hz gamma oscillations in the subthalamic nucleus, which have formerly been regarded as favouring movement.

    The age of Homo naledi and associated sediments in the Rising Star Cave, South Africa

    Paul HGM Dirks et al.
    Independent dating techniques have established that the H. naledi fossils are between 236 and 335 thousand years old, indicating that small-brained hominins with relatively primitive body shapes co-existed with our early ancestors in Africa.

    Age-dependent diastolic heart failure in an in vivo Drosophila model

    Matthew P Klassen et al.
    As in humans, Drosophila hearts are able to maintain contractile performance during healthy aging, but this maintenance is associated with an increased susceptibility to progressive dysrhythmias that can lead to fibrillatory arrest.

    Advances in X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) diffraction data processing applied to the crystal structure of the synaptotagmin-1 / SNARE complex

    Artem Y Lyubimov et al.
    Building on previous work (Uervirojnangkoorn et al., 2015), we demonstrate how improved methods for processing XFEL diffraction data enable the determination of structures from poorly diffracting crystals.

    Mapping the conformational landscape of a dynamic enzyme by multitemperature and XFEL crystallography

    Daniel A Keedy et al.
    The conformations of the enzyme cyclophilin A that are essential for its catalytic activity are temperature dependent and exhibit diverse responses, which is consistent with a complex energy landscape.
