    Contributions of mast cells and vasoactive products, leukotrienes and chymase, to dengue virus-induced vascular leakage

    Ashley L St John et al.
    Proteins produced by mast cells modulate the permeability of blood vessels, and may determine whether patients infected with dengue virus develop life-threatening complications.

    Stapled Golgi cisternae remain in place as cargo passes through the stack

    Gregory Lavieu et al.
    The cisternae of the Golgi contain two functionally distinct domains: the central areas, which remain stationary, and the edges or rims, which are mobile.

    Photoreceptor avascular privilege is shielded by soluble VEGF receptor-1

    Ling Luo et al.
    The eye produces a protein that inhibits the growth of blood vessels in the deep retina, which includes the photoreceptor layer, and disruption of this process can lead to blindness.

    The genome sequence of the colonial chordate, Botryllus schlosseri

    Ayelet Voskoboynik et al.
    The Botryllus schlosseri genome yields insights into the evolution of hematopoiesis.

    Direct live imaging of cell–cell protein transfer by transient outer membrane fusion in Myxococcus xanthus

    Adrien Ducret et al.
    Physical contact between two Myxococcus xanthus cells is sufficient to fuse their outer membrane transiently and exchange outer membrane proteins and lipids at high efficiency.

    Dynamin phosphorylation controls optimization of endocytosis for brief action potential bursts

    Moritz Armbruster et al.
    The recycling of transmitter vesicles at synapses shows calcium-dependent regulation that depends on the phosphorylation status of an enzyme called dynamin.

    Functional genomic characterization of neoblast-like stem cells in larval Schistosoma mansoni

    Bo Wang et al.
    Cells that give rise to the infectious form of parasitic flatworms called schistosomes show similar patterns of gene expression to stem cells in free-living flatworms.
