    Presenilin mutations deregulate mitochondrial Ca2+ homeostasis and metabolic activity causing neurodegeneration in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Shaarika Sarasija et al.
    In C. elegans, presenilin functions, independent of its gamma-secretase proteolytic activity, to regulate mitochondrial metabolism by controlling ER-mitochondrial calcium transfer and, even in the absence of Abeta signaling, loss of this activity leads to neurodegeneration.

    A Rho signaling network links microtubules to PKD controlled carrier transport to focal adhesions

    Stephan A Eisler et al.
    The small GTPase Rho connects GPCR signaling with PKD activity at TGN membranes and consequently anterograde trafficking to focal adhesions.

    E-cadherin binds to desmoglein to facilitate desmosome assembly

    Omer Shafraz et al.
    Two critical events initiate and promote efficient desmosome assembly: stable binding of opposing E-cadherin cell-cell adhesion proteins; and direct interaction of E-cadherin and Desmoglein.

    Adaptation to constant light requires Fic-mediated AMPylation of BiP to protect against reversible photoreceptor degeneration

    Andrew T Moehlman et al.
    Tuning of BiP activity by Fic-mediated AMPylation is required for Drosophila photoreceptor plasticity and attenuation of the unfolded protein response.
