    Tuning movement for sensing in an uncertain world

    Chen Chen et al.
    Animals work in a world full of surprises, where using energy to position sensors proportional to the location's expected information avoids the pitfalls of positioning them at the information maxima.
  1. Meta-Research: How significant are the public dimensions of faculty work in review, promotion and tenure documents?

    Juan P Alperin et al.
    An analysis of review, promotion and tenure documents from 129 US and Canadian universities suggests institutions could better fulfill their public missions by changing how they incentivize the public dimensions of faculty work.

    Novel functions for integrin-associated proteins revealed by analysis of myofibril attachment in Drosophila

    Hannah J Green et al.
    Integrin and actin associated proteins are resolved into four layers within myofibril attachments, an architecture requiring balanced positive and negative regulation of integrin adhesion with integrated mechanotransduction and actin pathways.

    Investigating the trade-off between folding and function in a multidomain Y-family DNA polymerase

    Xiakun Chu et al.
    The physical interaction network encoded in the multi-domain protein native structure handles the trade-off between the fast, stable folding and the efficient, reliable function.

    Molecular mechanism for direct actin force-sensing by α-catenin

    Lin Mei et al.
    Biophysical and structural studies reveal how low piconewton forces across actin enhance binding by the critical cell-cell adhesion protein α-catenin versus its force insensitive homolog vinculin.

    Ant collective cognition allows for efficient navigation through disordered environments

    Aviram Gelblum et al.
    When real ants confront the classical 'Ant-in-a-labyrinth' physics problem where a random walker traverses a percolated environment, they employ active extended sensing and collective cognition to outperform passive physical solutions.

    Principles of self-organization and load adaptation by the actin cytoskeleton during clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Matthew Akamatsu et al.
    An experimentally constrained multiscale mathematical model predicts that branched actin networks self-organize at endocytic sites and bend to produce force, which was verified with cryo-electron tomography of intact cells.

    Characterization of human translesion DNA synthesis across a UV-induced DNA lesion

    Mark Hedglin et al.
    Quantitative binding and kinetic assays on DNA polymerases η and δ define the mechanism for polymerase exchange during human translesion DNA synthesis across a UV-induced lesion on the lagging strand.

    Tunable molecular tension sensors reveal extension-based control of vinculin loading

    Andrew S LaCroix et al.
    A quantitative understanding of molecular tension sensor function enables the production of unique sensors with desired mechanical properties as well as the ability to distinguish between protein force and protein deformation in mechanosensitive processes.

    Why plants make puzzle cells, and how their shape emerges

    Aleksandra Sapala et al.
    Puzzle-shape cells in the epidermis of many plants form due to a development constraint based on mechanical forces.
