- 3D electron tomography of brain tissue unveils distinct Golgi structures that sequester cytoplasmic contents in neurons
Summary: The power of new 3D imaging technologies, and optimal preservation of tissue samples, has helped to identify previously uncharacterized Golgi structures that sequester cytoplasmic material in neurons.
- Two classes of short intraflagellar transport train with different 3D structures are present in Chlamydomonas flagella
Highlighted article: In-depth analyses of IFT train ultrastructure in regenerating Chlamydomonas flagella shows the occurrence of three train types with different 3D structure, implicating differences in function.
- Flagellar pocket restructuring through the Leishmania life cycle involves a discrete flagellum attachment zone
Summary: Leishmania parasites have a highly structured flagellar pocket, including a structure homologous to the Trypanosoma brucei flagellum attachment zone, which undergoes structural adaptations in different life cycle stages.
