Nuclei within cells are constantly subjected to compressive, tensile, and shear forces, which regulate nucleoskeletal and cytoskeletal remodeling, activate signaling pathways, and direct cell-fate decisions. Multiple rheological methods have been adapted for characterizing the response to applied forces of isolated...

Extracellular vesicles (EVs), such as exosomes, can mediate long-distance communication between cells by delivering biomolecular cargo. It is speculated that EVs undergo back-fusion at multivesicular bodies (MVBs) in recipient cells to release their functional cargo. However, direct evidence is lacking....

Aberrant aggregation of the RNA-binding protein TDP-43 in neurons is a hallmark of frontotemporal lobar degeneration caused by haploinsufficiency in the gene encoding progranulin1,2. However, the mechanism leading to TDP-43 proteinopathy remains unclear. Here we use single-nucleus RNA sequencing to...

During immune reactions, functionally distinct B-cell subsets are generated by stochastic processes, including class-switch recombination (CSR) and plasma cell differentiation (PCD). In this study, we show a strong association between individual B-cell fates and mitochondrial functions. CSR occurs specifically in...
