    Metabolic pathways are dynamically regulated to meet the energy needs of the cell and maintain cell and organismal homeostasis. This series features Review articles that discuss various aspects of the regulation of metabolic signalling, the interface between metabolic regulators and cellular processes and the implications of their deregulation for human diseases.

    In this article series, Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology looks at the progress that has been made in identifying resident stem cells in different tissues and in characterizing these often-heterogeneous stem cell pools, as well as in understanding the intrinsic mechanisms and interactions with stem cell niches (the specialized microenvironments in which they reside) that regulate stem cell function.

    Popularization of super-resolution imaging techniques has allowed cell biologists to probe cell structure and function in previously unattainable detail. These methodologies continue to evolve, with new improvements that allow tailoring the available techniques to a particular need and application. This collection showcases primary research articles, reviews and protocols and highlights these recent developments by exemplifying the new, interesting applications of super-resolution microscopy as well as related tool development.

    This collection of primary research articles, reviews and protocols focuses on an emerging topic of mechanobiology, highlighting the broad involvement of mechanical forces in different biological contexts, their roles in development, physiology and disease, and how these forces are sensed and transduced to produce biologically-relevant responses. The collection also showcases new technical approaches to modulate mechanobiology, which in the future could be used to control cell fate and behaviour for therapeutic benefits.
