    Specific lid-base contacts in the 26s proteasome control the conformational switching required for substrate degradation

    Eric R Greene et al.
    The 26S proteasome lid subcomplex acts as an external scaffold whose interactions with the ATPase motor stabilize the substrate-engagement-competent state, and control conformational changes upon engagement for subsequent degradation steps.

    A tissue-like platform for studying engineered quiescent human T-cells’ interactions with dendritic cells

    Enas Abu-Shah et al.
    The use of advanced 3D culture systems with engineered quiescent human T-cells, mimicking in vivo cellular dynamics, paves the way to a new era of much needed pre-clinical research tools.

    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.

    Developmentally regulated Tcf7l2 splice variants mediate transcriptional repressor functions during eye formation

    Rodrigo M Young et al.
    The inclusion of a new alternatively spliced exon in Tcf7l2 can switch its function to repress transcription of Wnt target genes.

    Prolonged ovarian storage of mature Drosophila oocytes dramatically increases meiotic spindle instability

    Ethan J Greenblatt et al.
    Meiotic chromosome segregation in mature Drosophila oocytes is sensitive to prolonged quiescence, suggesting that human oocyte instability may result from storage of mature rather than primordial oocytes and be modifiable.

    Mechanisms of hyperexcitability in Alzheimer’s disease hiPSC-derived neurons and cerebral organoids vs isogenic controls

    Swagata Ghatak et al.
    Increased excitation and decreased inhibition associated with abnormal neuronal morphology, aberrant ion channel properties, and synaptic dysfunction contribute to hyperexcitability in Alzheimer’s disease hiPSC-derived neuronal cultures and cerebral organoids.

    Agonist-specific voltage-dependent gating of lysosomal two-pore Na+ channels

    Xiaoli Zhang et al.
    Tricyclic antidepressants activate lysosomal two-pore Na+ channels in a voltage-dependent manner.

    Entry by multiple picornaviruses is dependent on a pathway that includes TNK2, WASL, and NCK1

    Hongbing Jiang et al.
    Genetic and biochemical analyses identify a pathway important for infection by many picornaviruses.

    Evolutionarily conserved long-chain Acyl-CoA synthetases regulate membrane composition and fluidity

    Mario Ruiz et al.
    Silencing the acyl-coA synthethase ACSL1 protects against saturated fat lipotoxicity by preventing the degradation of polyunsaturated fatty acids, allowing them to be incorporated into phospholipids and improves membrane fluidity.
