    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
    Annu Rev Cell Dev Biol 25:329-54. 2009
    ..Mechanisms affecting local membrane curvature may also shape peripheral ER sheets and the nuclear envelope as well as mitochondria and caveolae...

    Yoko Shibata
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
    J Biol Chem 283:18892-904. 2008
    ..We propose that oligomerization of the reticulons and DP1/Yop1p is important for both their localization to the tubular domains of the ER and for their ability to form tubules...
  3. pmc Mechanisms determining the morphology of the peripheral ER
    Yoko Shibata
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Cell 143:774-88. 2010
    ..These proteins may generate sheets by stabilizing the high curvature of edges...
  4. pmc A class of dynamin-like GTPases involved in the generation of the tubular ER network
    Junjie Hu
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, 240 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Cell 138:549-61. 2009
    ..Since atlastin-1 mutations cause a common form of hereditary spastic paraplegia, we suggest ER-shaping defects as a neuropathogenic mechanism...
  5. pmc A conserved role for atlastin GTPases in regulating lipid droplet size
    Robin W Klemm
    Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Cell Rep 3:1465-75. 2013
    ..The effect of atlastin-1 on LD size correlates with its activity to promote membrane fusion in vitro. Our results indicate that atlastin-mediated fusion of ER membranes is important for LD size regulation...

    Junjie Hu
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, 240 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Science 319:1247-50. 2008
    ..Tubules made in vitro were narrower than normal ER tubules, due to a higher concentration of tubule-inducing proteins. The shape and oligomerization of the "morphogenic" proteins could explain the formation of the tubular ER...
  7. pmc The signal sequence coding region promotes nuclear export of mRNA
    Alexander F Palazzo
    Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS Biol 5:e322. 2007
    ..The discovery of an SSCR-mediated pathway explains the previously noted amino acid bias in signal sequences and suggests a link between nuclear export and membrane targeting of mRNAs...

    Yoko Shibata
    Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Cell 126:435-9. 2006
    ..Key proteins may drive the formation of these structural morphologies, which in turn could generate the rough and smooth functional domains of the ER...
