biosights: February 18, 2013 - Erecting a myosin scaffold for cytokinesis

submitted by: JCB
Cell division requires the coordinated action of proteins that promote actomyosin contraction, membrane trafficking, and extracellular matrix remodeling. Wloka et al. reveal that, in budding yeast, the type II myosin Myo1 acts as an immobile scaffold at the bud neck to organize proteins involved in forming the primary septum during cytokinesis. This biosights episode presents the paper by Wloka et al. from the February 4, 2013, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview...

Topological Soft Materials for All-Optic Low Energy Photonics

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
The existing infrastructure for managing the flow of information along the photonic pathways and in our computers is in most segments based on electrically encoded information and the transport of electric charges using the electric force. This process is limiting the speed of signal propagation and is costly in terms of energy dissipation. The predicted worldwide energy consumption of data centers for 2050 is approaching the electric energy generated in the European Union in 2010! It is...
