    Cardiac ryanodine receptor distribution is dynamic and changed by auxiliary proteins and post-translational modification

    Parisa Asghari et al.
    Repositioning the type II ryanodine receptors on the sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane is a potential new mechanism regulating their function, and therefore the strength of cardiac contraction.

    Intact synapse structure and function after combined knockout of PTPδ, PTPσ, and LAR

    Javier Emperador-Melero et al.
    Leukocyte common antigen-related receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases (LAR-RPTPs) are precisely localized to synaptic appositions, but do not control the assembly and function of the presynaptic nerve terminal.

    Cortical anchoring of the microtubule cytoskeleton is essential for neuron polarity

    Liu He et al.
    UNC119 complexes the microtubule binding CRMP to the cortical Ankyrin to immobilize the microtubule cytoskeleton in Caenorhabditis elegans neurons.

    rsEGFP2 enables fast RESOLFT nanoscopy of living cells

    Tim Grotjohann et al.
    The discovery of a fluorescent protein that can be rapidly switched between long-lived ‘on’ and ‘off’ states will lead to a new generation of super-resolution imaging experiments on living cells.

    Visualizing the functional architecture of the endocytic machinery

    Andrea Picco et al.
    A combination of light and electron microscopy data provide new insights into the dynamic architecture and the function of the endocytic protein machinery in relation to membrane shape changes in vivo.

    Alstrom syndrome gene is a stem-cell-specific regulator of centriole duplication in the Drosophila testis

    Cuie Chen, Yukiko M Yamashita
    Alms1a is a centrosomal protein that exhibits asymmetric localization between mother and daughter centrosomes in asymmetrically dividing stem cells in Drosophila testis, controlling centriole duplication.

    Importin-β modulates the permeability of the nuclear pore complex in a Ran-dependent manner

    Alan R Lowe et al.
    The Ran GTPase plays a role in defining the physical properties of the nuclear pore complex transport channel by remodeling the binding interactions of importin-β with the nucleoporin Nup153 at the nuclear face of the pore.

    Waves of actin and microtubule polymerization drive microtubule-based transport and neurite growth before single axon formation

    Amy M Winans et al.
    Waves of polymerizing actin work in concert with microtubule polymerization to lay down more microtubules tracks and transiently increase microtubule-based transport into the growing neurite.

    High-throughput, single-particle tracking reveals nested membrane domains that dictate KRasG12D diffusion and trafficking

    Yerim Lee et al.
    The nanoscopic landscape of the membrane has a direct impact on the spatiotemporal, and likely also the signaling, dynamics of Ras proteins.

    Ablation of SNX6 leads to defects in synaptic function of CA1 pyramidal neurons and spatial memory

    Yang Niu et al.
    SNX6 regulates the distribution of a protein called Homer1b/c to distal dendrites, enabling the latter to stabilize the synapses and thereby support memory formation.
