    AMPAR/TARP stoichiometry differentially modulates channel properties

    Federico Miguez-Cabello et al.
    A variable number of auxiliary subunit molecules (TARPs) accompanying AMPARs have a differential impact on channel behavior showing also striking differences between AMPAR subtypes.

    Evolutionarily distant I domains can functionally replace the essential ligand-binding domain of Plasmodium TRAP

    Dennis Klug et al.
    Exchange of the I domain in the Plasmodium surface protein TRAP against evolutionary distant I domains rescues infectivity of sporozoites.

    High temperature sensitivity is intrinsic to voltage-gated potassium channels

    Fan Yang, Jie Zheng
    Highly temperature-sensitive behavior of voltage-gated potassium channels provides a mechanistic model for how heat-activated TRP channels serve as temperature and pain sensors.

    Coupling chemosensory array formation and localization

    Alejandra Alvarado et al.
    Formation and cell pole-localization of chemotactic signaling-arrays is a coupled process mediated by ParP, which drives localized array-assembly and regulates the localization-dynamics of its network constituents.

    Chloroplast acquisition without the gene transfer in kleptoplastic sea slugs, Plakobranchus ocellatus

    Taro Maeda et al.
    The newly opened genome of a kleptoplastic mollusk, Plakobranchus ocellatus, indicated that sequestered plastids retain their activity within the animal cell without horizontal algal gene transfer to the animal nucleus.

    Emergence and diversification of a host-parasite RNA ecosystem through Darwinian evolution

    Taro Furubayashi et al.
    In an in vitro RNA replication system, an RNA spontaneously diversifies and continuously evolves through coevolution with parasitic entities.

    Controlling gene activation by enhancers through a drug-inducible topological insulator

    Taro Tsujimura et al.
    A novel synthetic DNA cassette of CTCF-binding sites combined with the drug-controllable induction system of heterochromatin enabled switchable blocking of chromatin conformation and gene-enhancer interaction.

    Cytoskeletal tension and Bazooka tune interface geometry to ensure fusion fidelity and sheet integrity during dorsal closure

    Piyal Taru Das Gupta, Maithreyi Narasimha
    Restoration of molecular and morphological symmetry and mechanical integrity following epithelial fusion relies on adaptive changes that are mediated by cytoskeletal tension and Bazooka dependent modulation of fusing interface geometry.

    Axon TRAP reveals learning-associated alterations in cortical axonal mRNAs in the lateral amygdala

    Linnaea E Ostroff et al.
    A diverse assortment of mRNAs are present in projection axons in the adult forebrain and their translation is associated with new memory formation.

    A bend, flip and trap mechanism for transposon integration

    Elizabeth R Morris et al.
    Structural and biochemical analyses of a eukaryotic DNA transpososome in the integration step reveal how mariner/Tc1 transposons are selectively integrated into a TA target sequence.
