    Purinergic signaling in cochlear supporting cells reduces hair cell excitability by increasing the extracellular space

    Travis A Babola et al.
    Supporting cells in the cochlea change their shape in response to purinergic receptor activation, which influences hair cell excitability by altering potassium redistribution in the extracellular space.

    Ankyrin-G mediates targeting of both Na+ and KATP channels to the rat cardiac intercalated disc

    Hua-Qian Yang et al.
    The functional interaction of Na+ and KATP channels at the intercalated disk of cardiomyocytes depends on Ankyrin G and is clinically relevant since KATP channel mutations affect Na+ channel expression.

    Rod nuclear architecture determines contrast transmission of the retina and behavioral sensitivity in mice

    Kaushikaram Subramanian et al.
    Establishing retinal contrast transmission as a novel determinant of mammalian fitness, this research adds functional significance to a prominent exception of nuclear organization, previously described in nocturnal rod photoreceptor cells.

    Modulating FOXO3 transcriptional activity by small, DBD-binding molecules

    Judith Hagenbuchner et al.
    The mode of binding and cellular effect of the first FOXO3-DNA-binding-domain targeting small compound discovered by a combined pharmacophore-based/biochemical screening approach is reported.

    Direct comparison of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in budding and fission yeast reveals conserved and evolvable features

    Yidi Sun et al.
    Quantitative comparison of clathrin-mediated endocytosis in budding and fission yeast identified conserved mechanisms and species-specific adaptations with broad implications that extend from yeast to humans.

    Dzip1 and Fam92 form a ciliary transition zone complex with cell type specific roles in Drosophila

    Jean-André Lapart et al.
    Genetic analyses in Drosophila establish the functional hierarchy of the ciliary transition zone module, Dzip1/Fam92/Cby, and reveal tissue specific variations in basal body anchoring pathways in fly ciliated tissues.

    Crumbs organizes the transport machinery by regulating apical levels of PI(4,5)P2 in Drosophila

    Johanna Lattner et al.
    The polarity protein crumbs controls apical secretion and the architecture of the apical domain by modulating PI(4,5)P2 levels and the organization of apical Rab6-, Rab11-, and Rab30-dependent trafficking.

    Chromatin-bound CRM1 recruits SET-Nup214 and NPM1c onto HOX clusters causing aberrant HOX expression in leukemia cells

    Masahiro Oka et al.
    A key molecule that connects leukemogenic proteins to aberrant HOX gene regulation turned out to be a nuclear export factor, CRM1.
