Nano-scale size holes in ER sheets provide an alternative to tubules for highly-curved membranes

Lena K. Schroeder, Andrew E. S. Barentine, Sarah Schweighofer, David Baddeley, Joerg Bewersdorf, Shirin Bahmanyar

STED super-resolution imaging reveals sub-diffraction holes in ER sheets, regulated by Climp63 and serving as reservoirs for curvature-sensing proteins.

Expression of TorsinA in a heterologous yeast system reveals interactions with conserved lumenal domains of LINC and nuclear pore complexes

Madeleine Chalfant, Karl W. Barber, Sapan Borah, David Thaller, C. Patrick Lusk

Despite yeast not having a Torsin homolog, heterologously-expressed atypical AAA-ATPase Torsin A reveals conserved interactions with SUN-domain proteins at SPBs and the Pom152 component of the NPC.

Ultra-fast cellular contractions in the epithelium of T. adhaerens and the “active cohesion” hypothesis

Shahaf Armon, Matthew Storm Bull, Andres Aranda-Diaz, Manu Prakash

An amphipathic helix enables septins to sense micron-scale membrane curvature

Kevin S. Cannon, Benjamin L. Woods, John M. Crutchley, Amy S. Gladfelter

Mustafa Mir, Michael R. Stadler, Stephan A. Ortiz, Melissa M. Harrison, Xavier Darzacq, Michael B. Eisen

Lattice light sheet imaging of Zelda and Bicoid reveal the formation of unexpectedly short-lived transcription factor hubs at sites of active transcription.

Shasha Chong, Claire Dugast-Darzacq, Zhe Liu, Peng Dong, Gina M. Dailey, Claudia Cattoglio, Sambashiva Banala, Luke Lavis, Xavier Darzacq, Robert Tjian

Many transcription factors contain low-complexity domains (LCDs). These LCD-LCD interactions might involve liquid-liquid phase separation and play a role in regulating interactions between transcription factors and PolII.

Cryo-ET reveals nucleosome reorganisation in condensed mitotic chromosomes in vivo

Shujun Cai, Chen Chen, Zhi Yang Tan, Yinyi Huang, Jian Shi, Lu Gan

Nucleosomes in mitotic fission yeast chromosomes are organised into larger clusters than in interphase, but the overall clustering density remains the same.

Mammalian kinetochores count attached microtubules in a sensitive and switch-like manner to control cell cycle progression

Jonathan Kuhn, Sophie Dumont

Detaching individual microtubules from the spindle, and independently tuning Hec1-microtubule binding activity, shows that the spindle assembly checkpoint responds not to force but to the number of microtubule-kinetochore contacts.

Reversible solidification of fission yeast cytoplasm after prolonged nutrient starvation

Maria B. Heimlicher, Mirjam Bächler, Chieze Ibeneche-Nnewihe, Ernst-Ludwig Florin, Andreas Hoenger, Damian Brunner

A cytoplasmic mesh immobilizes organelles and other components of the fission yeast cytoplasm after multiple days of nutrient starvation.

A synthetic biology platform for the reconstitution and mechanistic dissection of LINC complex assembly

Sagardip Majumder, Patrick T. Willey, Maxwell S. DeNies, Allen P. Liu, G.W. Gant Luxton

Artificial nuclear membranes can support SUN-KASH interactions, revealing SUN transmembrane topology and providing a synthetic platform for understanding LINC biology.

Contractile actomyosin network on nuclear envelope remnants positions chromosomes for mitosis

Alexander JR Booth, Zuojun Yue, John K Eykelenboom, Tom Stiff, GW Gant Luxton, Helfrid Hochegger, Tomoyuki U Tanaka

LINC-dependent actomyosin contraction prevents chromosomes from scattering after nuclear envelope breakdown.  

Regulation of Cilia Abundance in Multiciliated Cells

Rashmi Nanjundappa, Dong Kong, Kyuhwan Shim, Tim Stearns, Steven Brody, Jadranka Loncarek, Moe Mahjoub

Cell surface area directly regulates the abundance of cilia in ex-vivo multiciliated airway culture.

Superresolution architecture of pluripotency guarding adhesions

Aki Stubb, Camilo Guzmán, Elisa Närvä, Jesse Aaron, Teng-Leong Chew, Markku Saari, Mitro Miihkinen, Guillaume Jacquemet, Johanna Ivaska

Physical restriction of adhesion size in hPSC colonies can force exit from pluripotency; these “cornerstone” focal adhesions have an unusual 3D architecture, revealed by super-resolution imaging.

Intravascular arrest of circulating tumor cells is a two-step process exploiting their adhesion repertoire

Naël Osmani, Gautier Follain, Maria Jesus Garcia-Leon, Olivier Lefebvre, Sébastien Harlepp, Jacky G. Goetz

Using intravital imaging in zebrafish the multistep process of adhesion and subsequent extravasation of circulating tumor cells can be determined in detail.

A novel interplay between GEFs orchestrates Cdc42 activity during cell polarity and cytokinesis

Brian Hercyk, Julie Rich, Maitreyi Das

The crosstalk between GEFs permits the spatial and temporal regulation of Cdc42 activity
