    An autoinhibitory clamp of actin assembly constrains and directs synaptic endocytosis

    Steven J Del Signore et al.
    Autoinhibition allows synaptic endocytic actin regulators to pre-deploy to synaptic membranes at high concentrations and constrains actin assembly to productive events.

    Ferroptotic stress promotes the accumulation of pro-inflammatory proximal tubular cells in maladaptive renal repair

    Shintaro Ide et al.
    Ferroptotic stress enhances the accumulation of damage-associated inflammatory proximal tubular cell state, thereby promoting maladaptive renal repair and the AKI-to-CKD transition.

    Pak1 kinase controls cell shape through ribonucleoprotein granules

    Joseph O Magliozzi, James B Moseley
    A newly discovered substrate of Pak1 kinase reveals novel mechanisms that control cell shape through regulated assembly of ribonucleoprotein granules.

    RTN3 inhibits RIG-I-mediated antiviral responses by impairing TRIM25-mediated K63-linked polyubiquitination

    Ziwei Yang et al.
    RTN3 is upregulated upon RNA viral infection, in turn suppresses antiviral responses by impairing TRIM25-mediated RIG-I K63-linked polyubiquitination and decreases neutrophil populations and inflammatory infiltration, representing a novel inflammatory resolution.

    The GNU subunit of PNG kinase, the developmental regulator of mRNA translation, binds BIC-C to localize to RNP granules

    Emir E Avilés-Pagán et al.
    The Drosophila PNG kinase controls mRNA translation at the oocyte-to-embryo transition, and its GNU activating subunit is shown here to bind translational repressors and be a component of RNP granules.
