    Estimating the protein burden limit of yeast cells by measuring the expression limits of glycolytic proteins

    Yuichi Eguchi et al.
    Measurement of expression limits of yeast glycolytic proteins reveal the protein burden limit, which is the expression limit of any protein in the cell.

    Multiple inputs ensure yeast cell size homeostasis during cell cycle progression

    Cecilia Garmendia-Torres et al.
    Yeast cell size homeostasis is not controlled by a G1-specific mechanism alone but is likely to be an emergent property resulting from the integration of several mechanisms that coordinate cell and bud growth with division.

    A quantitative approach for analyzing the spatio-temporal distribution of 3D intracellular events in fluorescence microscopy

    Thierry Pécot et al.
    QuantEv is a fully automatic and semi-parametric method that allows quantitative analysis of the spatio-temporal distribution of complex molecular trafficking objects at the scale of the whole cell.

    Highly multiplexed immunofluorescence imaging of human tissues and tumors using t-CyCIF and conventional optical microscopes

    Jia-Ren Lin et al.
    t-CyCIF can be used to collect spatially-encoded, multiparametric data from fixed and embedded research or clinical specimens making it possible to probe the organization of tumors and tissues at a single-cell level.

    A positive-feedback-based mechanism for constriction rate acceleration during cytokinesis in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Renat N Khaliullin et al.
    Positive feedback between contractile ring myosin and compression-driven cortical flow can explain the exponential accumulation of contractile ring components and constriction rate acceleration that ensures timely cell separation during cytokinesis.

    Biophysical clocks face a trade-off between internal and external noise resistance

    Weerapat Pittayakanchit et al.
    Molecular clocks that are robust to external fluctuations are vulnerable to internal fluctuations and vice versa.

    Vertex sliding drives intercalation by radial coupling of adhesion and actomyosin networks during Drosophila germband extension

    Timothy E Vanderleest et al.
    Tricellular vertices possess sliding behaviors that harness radial forces and drive cell shape changes and intercalation in an epithelial tissue.
