    Interaction between Teneurin-2 and microtubules via EB proteins provides a platform for GABAA receptor exocytosis

    Sotaro Ichinose, Yoshihiro Susuki ... Hirohide Iwasaki
    Teneurin-2, a synaptic organizer, localizes to microtubule-rich inhibitory synapses and recruits microtubules via interaction with end-binding proteins, and this mechanism enables GABAA receptors exocytosis.

    Intermediate filament network perturbation in the C. elegans intestine causes systemic dysfunctions

    Florian Geisler, Sanne Remmelzwaal ... Rudolf E Leube
    Aberrant cytoskeletal intermediate filament networks in the C. elegans intestine are associated with hyperphosphorylated intermediate filament proteins and impact not only intestinal cell structure but have also detrimental consequences for organismal well-being.
