    Structural basis for anion conduction in the calcium-activated chloride channel TMEM16A

    Cristina Paulino et al.
    Single-particle cryo-EM and electrophysiology studies of the chloride channel TMEM16A reveals the structural basis for anion conduction and uncover its relationship to lipid scramblases of the same family.

    Secreted CLCA1 modulates TMEM16A to activate Ca2+-dependent chloride currents in human cells

    Monica Sala-Rabanal et al.
    A functional link between representative family members of the CLCA channel regulator family and TMEM16 channels suggests that these protein families may cooperate in influencing multiple homeostatic and disease physiologies.

    Role of Tim17 in coupling the import motor to the translocation channel of the mitochondrial presequence translocase

    Keren Demishtein-Zohary et al.
    First two transmembrane segments of Tim17 are involved in interaction with the channel and the second two with the motor of the presequence translocase suggesting how proteins are handed over during their translocation into mitochondria.
