    Large vesicle extrusions from C. elegans neurons are consumed and stimulated by glial-like phagocytosis activity of the neighboring cell

    Yu Wang, Meghan Lee Arnold ... Barth D Grant
    Giant neuron derived vesicles called exophers are processed by phagocytosis in neighboring skin cells, and the phagocytic interaction promotes exopher production.

    Identification of a weight loss-associated causal eQTL in MTIF3 and the effects of MTIF3 deficiency on human adipocyte function

    Mi Huang, Daniel Coral ... Sebastian Kalamajski
    MTIF3 safeguards mitochondrial electron transport chain assembly in adipocytes, and affects thus adipocyte fatty acid oxidation ability, which can explain why MTIF3 genetic variation can influence dietary intervention aimed at weight loss.

    Diet-induced loss of adipose hexokinase 2 correlates with hyperglycemia

    Mitsugu Shimobayashi, Amandine Thomas ... Michael N Hall
    A proteomics screening in mouse adipose tissue shows that loss of adipose Hexokinase 2 is a mechanism of obesity-induced insulin insensitivity.

    Information transfer in mammalian glycan-based communication

    Felix F Fuchsberger, Dongyoon Kim ... Christoph Rademacher
    The information stored in glycans is interpreted and read by cell surface-exposed lectin receptors, and with information theory, the formal framework is set for how to analyze such complex single-cell data.

    Novel repertoire of tau biosensors to monitor pathological tau transformation and seeding activity in living cells

    Erika Cecon, Atsuro Oishi ... Ralf Jockers
    Development of nanoluciferase complementation-based tau biosensors to detect tau conformational change and oligomerization in living cells in high-throughput assays.

    Meisosomes, folded membrane microdomains between the apical extracellular matrix and epidermis

    Dina Aggad, Nicolas Brouilly ... Nathalie Pujol
    Combining live imaging and advanced electron microscopy gives insights into the structural integrity of the nematode epidermis and its intimate connection with the extracellular matrix.
