    β11-12 linker isomerization governs acid-sensing ion channel desensitization and recovery

    Matthew L Rook et al.
    The rotation of the β11-12 linker is a crucial control point for acid-sensing ion channel gating and motion of this linker is required for the channel to desensitize.

    A selectivity filter at the intracellular end of the acid-sensing ion channel pore

    Timothy Lynagh et al.
    Sodium selectivity of acid-sensing ion channels is mediated by negatively charged side chains and not by a size-exclusion mechanism.

    A valve-like mechanism controls desensitization of functional mammalian isoforms of acid-sensing ion channels

    Yangyu Wu et al.
    Three residues work together as a valve-like mechanism to control desensitization from pre-open and open states in the ion channels ASIC1a, ASIC2a, and ASIC3.

    Transient acidosis while retrieving a fear-related memory enhances its lability

    Jianyang Du et al.
    Activating ASIC channels in the amygdala makes a single reminder more effective at rendering consolidated fear memories labile and susceptible to modification.

    Tarantula toxins use common surfaces for interacting with Kv and ASIC ion channels

    Kanchan Gupta et al.
    The tarantula toxins psalmotoxin and guangxitoxin have a similar concave surface for interacting with α-helices in voltage-gated and acid-sensing ion channels.

  1. Meta-Research: A comprehensive review of randomized clinical trials in three medical journals reveals 396 medical reversals

    Diana Herrera-Perez et al.
    An analysis of more than 3000 randomized controlled trials published in JAMA, the Lancet and NEJM has identified 396 medical reversals.
  2. Research: Gender bias in scholarly peer review

    Markus Helmer et al.
    Gender-bias in peer reviewing might persist even when gender-equity is reached because both male and female editors operate with a same-gender preference whose characteristics differ by editor-gender.
