    MACF1 controls skeletal muscle function through the microtubule-dependent localization of extra-synaptic myonuclei and mitochondria biogenesis

    Alireza Ghasemizadeh et al.
    Maintenance of peripheral myonuclei patterning in skeletal myofibers is dependent on the regulation of microtubules dynamic and nuclei motion and is essential for proper neuromuscular junction integrity and mitochondria homeostasis.

    Emergence of a smooth interface from growth of a dendritic network against a mechanosensitive contractile material

    Medha Sharma et al.
    A smooth and circular interface can form between domains of the cell cortex from local induction of a contractile actomyosin ring by centrifugal pushing forces of an expanding Arp2/3 actin network.

    Distinct roles of nonmuscle myosin II isoforms for establishing tension and elasticity during cell morphodynamics

    Kai Weißenbruch et al.
    The mechanical response of adherent cells in structured environments is shown to be shaped by the intricate interplay between the three different isoforms of an essential molecular motor.

    Deep learning detects cardiotoxicity in a high-content screen with induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes

    Francis Grafton et al.
    Deep learning combined with induced pluripotent stem cell technology is an effective method to interrogate cellular phenotypes and predict patterns of cardiotoxicity in vitro.

    Sustained expression of unc-4 homeobox gene and unc-37/Groucho in postmitotic neurons specifies the spatial organization of the cholinergic synapses in C. elegans

    Mizuki Kurashina et al.
    Genetic analyses using a simple nervous system of the nematode revealed the novel function of the cell fate-determining transcriptional repressor complex in the differentiated neurons to determine the precise synapse position.

    Tissue-specific targeting of DNA nanodevices in a multicellular living organism

    Kasturi Chakraborty et al.
    DNA nanodevices can be targeted to specific cell types in Caenorhabditis elegans with subcellular precision by exploiting either endogenous or synthetic receptors.

    An hourglass circuit motif transforms a motor program via subcellularly localized muscle calcium signaling and contraction

    Steven R Sando et al.
    By driving the localized contraction of subcellular muscle regions, a single motor neuron reverses the flow of material in the Caenorhabditis elegans pharynx, a neuromuscular pump, converting feeding into spitting.

    Behavior: C. elegans does a spit take

    Michael Hendricks
    Eating can turn into spitting because individual parts of a muscle cell are able to contract in different ways.

    Pak1 and PP2A antagonize aPKC function to support cortical tension induced by the Crumbs-Yurt complex

    Cornelia Biehler et al.
    Cell biology analyses in Drosophila epithelial tissues reveal novel mechanisms connecting epithelial polarity proteins with Myosin-dependent cell contractility.

    Acid-base transporters and pH dynamics in human breast carcinomas predict proliferative activity, metastasis, and survival

    Nicolai J Toft et al.
    Cellular acidity, capacity for net acid extrusion, and expression of acid-base transporters in human breast carcinomas independently predict variation in proliferative activity, lymph node metastasis, and patient survival.
