    Structural basis of tubulin recruitment and assembly by microtubule polymerases with tumor overexpressed gene (TOG) domain arrays

    Stanley Nithianantham et al.
    TOG (tumor overexpressed gene) domains organize then polymerize tubulins at microtubule plus ends.

    A novel mode of capping protein-regulation by twinfilin

    Adam B Johnston et al.
    Twinfilin functions as a pro-capping ligand of capping protein, dynamically competing with inhibitory ligands of capping proteinto control cellular actin assembly.

    Ryanodine receptor dispersion disrupts Ca2+ release in failing cardiac myocytes

    Terje R Kolstad et al.
    Experimental and mathematical modeling approaches identify a novel mechanism of heart failure, linking disrupted calcium homeostasis and impaired contractility of cardiacmyocytes to nanoscale reorganization of calcium release channels.

    CRELD1 is an evolutionarily-conserved maturational enhancer of ionotropic acetylcholine receptors

    Manuela D'Alessandro et al.
    The protein disulphide isomerase CRELD1 controls the biosynthesis of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in nematode and mouse muscle.

    Proteolytically released Lasso/teneurin-2 induces axonal attraction by interacting with latrophilin-1 on axonal growth cones

    Nickolai V Vysokov et al.
    Lasso and latrophilin-1 interact across the synapse, while shed Lasso binds latrophilin-1 on distant growth cones and attracts them, providing a universal mechanism for short- and long-range axonal guidance.

    Angiopoietin-4-dependent venous maturation and fluid drainage in the peripheral retina

    Harri Elamaa et al.
    Identification of importance of Angiopoietin-4 (Angpt4) as a first growth factor that initiates venous specification in the peripheral retina, and Angpt4-dependent mechanism for fluid clearance in the mouse retina.

    Shear-induced damped oscillations in an epithelium depend on actomyosin contraction and E-cadherin cell adhesion

    Ehsan Sadeghipour et al.
    Cell movement toward and away from the midline of an epithelium over tens of hours are caused by spontaneous or externally-applied shear forces to eliminate force imbalances within the tissue.

    Bid maintains mitochondrial cristae structure and function and protects against cardiac disease in an integrative genomics study

    Christi T Salisbury-Ruf et al.
    An integrative approach, combining genetic mouse and large-scale human genetics studies, was used to reveal a novel role for the Bcl-2 protein Bid in maintenance of mitochondrial function that alters susceptibility to myocardial infarction.
