    Altered hippocampal-prefrontal communication during anxiety-related avoidance in mice deficient for the autism-associated gene Pogz

    Margaret M Cunniff et al.
    In POGZ heterozygous mice, reduced anxiety-related avoidance is associated with decreased feedforward inhibition and theta synchrony in the hippocampal-prefrontal pathway.

    A sulfur-aromatic gate latch is essential for opening of the Orai1 channel pore

    Priscilla S-W Yeung et al.
    Electrophysiological and molecular modeling studies identify a sulfur-aromatic interaction between the hydrophobic channel gate and a nearby methionine residue, termed the "gate latch", which is essential for Orai1 pore opening.

    New capsaicin analogs as molecular rulers to define the permissive conformation of the mouse TRPV1 ligand-binding pocket

    Simon Vu et al.
    Novel capsaicin analogs with conserved chemistry but varying sizes were used as molecular rulers to investigate energetics of conformational changes in the ligand-binding pocket and mechanisms of TRPV1 ligand-gating.

    Alcohol potentiates a pheromone signal in flies

    Annie Park et al.
    For Drosophila melanogaster, the scent of alcohol—normally associated with preferred egg-laying sites—potentiates a male pheromone signal, thereby increasing the aggressive competition between males for the reproductive resource.

    Integrase-RNA interactions underscore the critical role of integrase in HIV-1 virion morphogenesis

    Jennifer L Elliott et al.
    HIV-1 integrase-RNA interactions account for the key role of integrase in particle maturation.

    Viral Maturation: How to package the RNA of HIV-1

    Alex Kleinpeter, Eric O Freed
    Interactions between viral RNA and the integrase enzyme are required for HIV-1 particles to become infectious, a process that can be disrupted through multiple mechanisms.

    Burst mitofusin activation reverses neuromuscular dysfunction in murine CMT2A

    Antonietta Franco et al.
    A trial of mitofusin activation shows neuron regeneration and phenotype reversal in vitro and in vivo in experimental Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease type 2A caused by mitofusin 2 mutations.
