    Generation of endogenous pH-sensitive EGF receptor and its application in high-throughput screening for proteins involved in clathrin-mediated endocytosis

    Mads Breum Larsen et al.
    CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing was used to generate a novel endogenous pH-sensitive EGF receptor chimera with the unique utility to study receptor endocytosis in a single-cell and high-throughput experimental formats.

    Neck linker docking is critical for Kinesin-1 force generation in cells but at a cost to motor speed and processivity

    Breane G Budaitis et al.
    Force generation by kinesin motor proteins requires formation of both a 2-stranded cover-neck bundle and an asparagine-based latch for transport of membrane-bound cargoes in cells.

    PAX8 regulon in human ovarian cancer links lineage dependency with epigenetic vulnerability to HDAC inhibitors

    Kaixuan Shi et al.
    A functional ovarian-specific PAX8-centric regulon is susceptible to FDA-approved HDAC inhibitors, providing the rationale to target human cancers driven by lineage-survival oncogenes with epigenetic therapeutics perturbing the enhancer topology.
