    Endothelial pannexin 1–TRPV4 channel signaling lowers pulmonary arterial pressure in mice

    Zdravka Daneva et al.
    Endothelial pannexin 1-P2Y2 purinergic receptor-TRPV4 channel signaling, facilitated by caveolin-1, is a novel pathway for lowering pulmonary arterial pressure.

    TRPC3 and NALCN channels drive pacemaking in substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons

    Ki Bum Um et al.
    The non-selective Na+ leak channel (NALCN) and the transient receptor potential 3 channel (TRPC3) cooperate in driving pacemaking in substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons.

    Homo-oligomerization of the human adenosine A2A receptor is driven by the intrinsically disordered C-terminus

    Khanh Dinh Quoc Nguyen et al.
    The C-terminus of A2A receptor drives oligomer formation via an intricate network of disulfide bonds, hydrogen bonds, electrostatic interactions, and hydrophobic interactions, all of which are enhanced by depletion interactions.

    An octopamine receptor confers selective toxicity of amitraz on honeybees and Varroa mites

    Lei Guo et al.
    The structural and pharmacological difference of the invertebrate counterpart of β-adrenergic receptor confers selective toxicity of an insecticide on honeybees and their devastating parasite Varroa mites.

    The Ca2+-activated cation channel TRPM4 is a positive regulator of pressure overload-induced cardiac hypertrophy

    Yang Guo et al.
    The TRPM4 ion channel has been identified as an important component in the causation of mechanical pressure overload-induced pathological left ventricular hypertrophy, which is a powerful predictor of cardiovascular mortality.

    Scaling of subcellular actin structures with cell length through decelerated growth

    Shane G McInally et al.
    The size of a subcellular structure, yeast actin cables, scales with the linear dimensions of the cell, which is achieved by feedback control of their growth rate.
