Chao et al. identify a RasGAP complex that plays a specific role in the regulation of macropinosome formation. Their results demonstrate that both deletion and overexpression of this complex compromise macropinocytic activity, highlighting the importance of fine-tuning Ras activity for efficient macropinocytosis.

T cells form focal adhesions consisting of integrins, talin, and vinculin when migrating on extracellular matrix proteins. Like mesenchymal cells, these adhesions are sites of contractile force transmission, and T cells use them to facilitate their navigation through complex environments.

Ugale et al. demonstrate that CDC42, ERK, and mTORC1 signaling are polarized in premitotic hematopoietic stem cells and unequally segregated during asymmetric cell division. A CDC42/ERK/mTORC1 pathway maintains HSC polarity and balances symmetric and asymmetric cell division.

How are mislocalized secretory proteins targeted for destruction? Shimshon, Dahan, et al. discover that DPP8/9 peptidases expose a hidden “destroy me” tag in the targeting signal of substrates upon translocation failure, which flags them for UBR E3 ligases-mediated breakdown, preserving cellular protein balance.

The anaphase spindle exhibits left-handed twist, but the source of this chirality is unknown. Neahring et al. identify two spindle motors that promote twist but find that the spindle positioning machinery counteracts it, revealing that twist is set by factors within and outside the spindle.

In human cells, the S-phase-promoting kinase CDC7 exists in two alternative complexes: CDC7-DBF4 or CDC7-DRF1. Here, Göder et al. show that while CDC7’s essential function can be supported by both subunits, DBF4 is the primary mediator of CDC7 activity during DNA replication.

This study reveals crosstalk between Sonic Hedgehog (SHH) and prostaglandin signaling pathways. SHH signaling leads to the secretion of PGE2, which activates the ciliary EP4 receptor to promote primary cilium length stability. Disruption of SHH-to-EP4 communication leads to primary cilium shortening and reduced SHH signal output.

Reviews & Opinions
Perspective
Ivan R. Nabi, Ben Cardoen, Ismail M. Khater, Guang Gao, Timothy H. Wong, Ghassan Hamarneh
Nabi and colleagues discuss supervision paradigms for biological discovery from super-resolution microscopy to enable AI-accelerated exploration of the nanoscale architecture of subcellular macromolecules and organelles.
Perspective
Anda Huna, Amélie Massemin, Gabriela Makulyte, Jean-Michel Flaman, Nadine Martin, David Bernard
Huna et al. provide insights into the shifting perception of cellular senescence: from a mere cell proliferation arrest to a reinforcement or change of cell identity.
Spotlight
G.W. Gant Luxton
G.W. Gant Luxton discusses new findings from the Roux group that show how changes in cellular GTP levels alter the rates of nucleocytoplasmic transport.
