Coupled RNA-SIP and metatranscriptomics of active chemolithoautotrophic communities at a deep-sea hydrothermal vent
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-02-12)
The chemolithoautotrophic microbial community of the rocky subseafloor potentially provides a large amount of organic carbon to the deep ocean, yet our understanding of the activity and metabolic complexity of subseafloor ...
Five factors can reconstitute all three phases of microtubule polymerization dynamics
(Rockefeller University Press, 2016-10-31)
Cytoplasmic microtubules (MTs) undergo growth, shrinkage, and pausing. However, how MT polymerization cycles are produced and spatiotemporally regulated at a molecular level is unclear, as the entire cycle has not been ...
How the bending kinematics of swimming lampreys build negative pressure fields for suction thrust
(Company of Biologists, 2016-12-14)
Swimming animals commonly bend their bodies to generate thrust. For undulating animals such as eels and lampreys, their bodies bend in the form of waves that travel from head to tail. These kinematics accelerate the flow ...
Correction to “Importance of carbon-nitrogen interactions and ozone on ecosystem hydrology during the 21st century”
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-08-22)
Living cells and dynamic molecules observed with the polarized light microscope : the legacy of Shinya Inoué
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2016-08)
In 1948, Shinya Inoué arrived in the United States for graduate studies at Princeton. A year later he came to Woods Hole, starting a long tradition of summer research at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), which quickly ...
Effects of fertilizer on inorganic soil N in East Africa maize systems : vertical distributions and temporal dynamics
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-09-02)
Fertilizer applications are poised to increase across sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), but the fate of added nitrogen (N) is largely unknown. We measured vertical distributions and temporal variations of soil inorganic N following ...
Rediscovery of the nucleolinus, a dynamic RNA-rich organelle associated with the nucleolus, spindle, and centrosomes
The nucleolinus is an RNA-rich compartment, closely apposed to or embedded within the nucleolus. Discovered over 150 years ago, fewer than two dozen articles have been published on the nucleolinus, probably because complex ...
Palmitoylation regulates glutamate receptor distributions in postsynaptic densities through control of PSD95 conformation and orientation
PSD95 and SAP97 are homologous scaffold proteins with different N-terminal domains, possessing either a palmitoylation site (PSD95) or an L27 domain (SAP97). Here, we measured PSD95 and SAP97 conformation in vitro and ...
Phosphorylation controls autoinhibition of cytoplasmic linker protein-170
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2010-06-02)
Cytoplasmic linker protein (CLIP)-170 is a microtubule (MT) plus-end-tracking protein that regulates MT dynamics and links MT plus ends to different intracellular structures. We have shown previously that intramolecular ...
Toward a predictive understanding of Earth’s microbiomes to address 21st century challenges
(American Society for Microbiology, 2016-05-13)
Microorganisms have shaped our planet and its inhabitants for over 3.5 billion years. Humankind has had a profound influence on the biosphere, manifested as global climate and land use changes, and extensive urbanization ...
