    Mitochondria reorganization upon proliferation arrest predicts individual yeast cell fate

    Damien Laporte et al.
    Mitochondria morphology can be use to identify quiescent and senescent yeast cells.

    TFAP2 transcription factors are regulators of lipid droplet biogenesis

    Cameron C Scott et al.
    The biogenesis of lipid droplets induced by Wnt3a is controlled by the transcription factor TFAP2, which presumably acts as a 'master' regulator of lipid droplet biogenesis.

    KChIP3 coupled to Ca2+ oscillations exerts a tonic brake on baseline mucin release in the colon

    Gerard Cantero-Recasens et al.
    KChIP3 localisation by intracellular calcium oscillations controls mucin release from colonic goblet cells.

    The microtubule polymerase Stu2 promotes oligomerization of the γ-TuSC for cytoplasmic microtubule nucleation

    Judith Gunzelmann et al.
    Biochemical and genetic approaches show that the XMAP215 homolog Stu2 directly interacts with the small gamma-tubulin complex and its recruitment factor Spc72 to instigate functions in cytoplasmic microtubule organization.

    The cargo receptor SURF4 promotes the efficient cellular secretion of PCSK9

    Brian T Emmer et al.
    A CRISPR-based genomic screen identifies the ER cargo receptor SURF4 as a key determinant in the secretion of PCSK9, a protein that regulates human cholesterol levels and cardiovascular disease risk.

    Cyclin-dependent kinase control of motile ciliogenesis

    Eszter K Vladar et al.
    Cyclin-dependentkinase 2 (Cdk2), the master regulator of S phase events during the cell cycle, controls the earliest step in the motile ciliogenesis pathway in quiescent multiciliatedairway epithelial cells.

    Direct visualization of a native Wnt in vivo reveals that a long-range Wnt gradient forms by extracellular dispersal

    Ariel M Pani, Bob Goldstein
    Free, extracellular dispersal of Wnt proteins generates a long-range gradient during animal development and is required for signaling.

    Prolonged cross-bridge binding triggers muscle dysfunction in a Drosophila model of myosin-based hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

    William A Kronert et al.
    Integrative analysis of a Drosophila model of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy demonstrates that prolonged binding of the myosin cross-bridge to actin is a root cause of the disorder.
