    Integrating images from multiple microscopy screens reveals diverse patterns of change in the subcellular localization of proteins

    Alex X Lu et al.
    100,000s of images from different growth conditions and genetic backgrounds can be integrated into proteome-scale analysis.

    Crystal structure of intraflagellar transport protein 80 reveals a homo-dimer required for ciliogenesis

    Michael Taschner et al.
    CRISPR/Cas knockout of intraflagellar transport protein 80 shows that this subunit is absolutely required for ciliogenesis, and biophysical studies reveal that this protein may dimerize the intraflagellar transport complex.

    Inhibitor-induced HER2-HER3 heterodimerisation promotes proliferation through a novel dimer interface

    Jeroen Claus et al.
    The clinically approved HER2 inhibitor lapatinib causes HER2 and HER3 kinase domains to dimerise in a non-canonical, symmetric orientation, providing a platform for oligomerisation and predisposing to receptor-driven cell proliferation.

    Lymphatic endothelium stimulates melanoma metastasis and invasion via MMP14-dependent Notch3 and β1-integrin activation

    Pirita Pekkonen et al.
    The melanoma cell interaction with lymphatic endothelial cells promotes melanoma metastasis by inducing a reversible switch to invasively sprouting melanoma cells.

    Mfn2 ubiquitination by PINK1/parkin gates the p97-dependent release of ER from mitochondria to drive mitophagy

    Gian-Luca McLelland et al.
    A crucial step during the mitophagy cascade involves the disassembly of connections between mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum via the retrotranslocation of Mfn2 tethering complexes by the Parkinson's disease genes PARKIN and PINK1, as well as the ATPase VCP/p97.
