Initial Neurite Outgrowth in Drosophila Neurons Is Driven by Kinesin-Powered Microtubule Sliding
Remarkably, forces within a neuron can extend its axon to a target that could be meters away. The two main cytoskeleton components in neurons are microtubules, which are mostly bundled along the axonExpand

The Microtubule-Binding Protein Ensconsin Is an Essential Cofactor of Kinesin-1
Kinesin-1 is a major microtubule motor that drives transport of numerous cellular cargoes toward the plus ends of microtubules. In the cell, kinesin-1 exists primarily in an inactive, autoinhibitedExpand

Image Quality Assessment Based on Multiscale Geometric Analysis
TLDR
A novel reduced-reference image quality assessment framework is proposed by incorporating merits of multiscale geometry analysis (MGA), contrast sensitivity function (CSF), and the Weber’s law of just noticeable difference (JND). Expand

Mechanisms of an autoimmunity syndrome in mice caused by a dominant mutation in Aire.
Homozygous loss-of-function mutations in AIRE cause autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1 (APS 1), which manifests in a classic triad of hypoparathyroidism, adrenal insufficiency, and candidiasis.Expand

Pavarotti/MKLP1 Regulates Microtubule Sliding and Neurite Outgrowth in Drosophila Neurons
Recently, we demonstrated that kinesin-1 can slide microtubules against each other, providing the mechanical force required for initial neurite extension in Drosophila neurons. This sliding is onlyExpand
