In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the class V myosin motor Myo2p propels the movement of most organelles. We recently identified Inp2p as the peroxisome-specific receptor for Myo2p. In this study, we delineate the region of Myo2p devoted to binding peroxisomes. Using mutants of Myo2p specifically...
The article reviews the book "Athlete First: A History of the Paralympic Movement" by Steve Bailey.
Two recent studies in BMC Biology and Evolution raise important questions about a textbook case of frequency-dependent selection in scale-eating cichlid fishes. They also suggest a fascinating new line of research testing the effects of handed behavior on morphological asymmetry.
The concept of the subjunctive mode provides a useful key in exploring narrative comprehension in different media. This article reports on a study in which twelve undergraduates, working in groups of three, read a novel, watched a movie, and played a digital game. Analysis of transcripts of their...
Peroxisomes can import large multimeric protein complexes and even 9-nm gold particles decorated with peroxisome-targeting signals. They achieve these feats of protein passage using a distinctive translocon whose highly dynamic aqueous pore can expand to accommodate the increasing girths of...
