    An essential and NSF independent role for α-SNAP in store-operated calcium entry

    Yong Miao et al.
    α-SNAP mediated rearrangement of Stim1 and Orai1 molecules within CRAC channel clusters is required for store-operated calcium entry.

    Structures reveal opening of the store-operated calcium channel Orai

    Xiaowei Hou et al.
    The structure of the calcium channel Orai in an open conformation reveals a dilated pore and gives insight into mechanisms of ion permeation and calcium selectivity.

    Rai1 frees mice from the repression of active wake behaviors by light

    Shanaz Diessler et al.
    Halving dosage of the Smith-Magenis syndrome responsible gene Rai1 in the mouse greatly amplifies the direct, suppressing effects of light on active-wake behavior through increased activation of the ventral-subparaventricular zone.

    Na+ influx via Orai1 inhibits intracellular ATP-induced mTORC2 signaling to disrupt CD4 T cell gene expression and differentiation

    Yong Miao et al.
    Non-specific sodium entry inhibits T cell receptor induced gene expression and differentiation of T cells by depleting intracellular ATP and disrupting mTORC2 dependent signalling axis.

    Intermittent Ca2+ signals mediated by Orai1 regulate basal T cell motility

    Tobias X Dong et al.
    Orai1 channels activate intermittently in motile T cells, generating calcium transients, detected by a novel genetically encoded indicator and inducing pauses that favor antigen scanning.
