Tubulin heterogeneity regulates functions and dynamics of microtubules and plays a role in the development of drug resistance in cancer
Starvation-induced autophagy is up-regulated via ROS-mediated ClC-3 chloride channel activation in the nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell line CNE-2Z
CrmA orthologs from diverse poxviruses potently inhibit caspases-1 and -8, yet cleavage site mutagenesis frequently produces caspase-1-specific variants
Quantitative assessment of the high-light tolerance in plants with an impaired photosystem II donor side
Microtubules exhibit diverse structural and functional properties in different cell types. In this issue, Prassanawar and Panda review the current knowledge of tubulin isotypes and their post-translational modifications and how, together, they control the cellular functions of the microtubules. The cover image shows a picture of interphase microtubules in a MCF-7 cell and a representation of microtubule and its various post-translational modifications. For further details see pages 1359–1376.
