    Structural determinants of voltage-gating properties in calcium channels

    Monica L Fern√°ndez-Quintero et al.
    Structure modeling, site-directed mutagenesis, and current recordings revealed the mechanism by which stabilization of voltage sensors in the resting and activated states determines the gating properties of the CaV1.1 calcium channel.

    Nonlinearities between inhibition and T-type calcium channel activity bidirectionally regulate thalamic oscillations

    Adam C Lu et al.
    A multi-scale integration of experimental and computational approaches shows how a non-linear dependence of T-type calcium channel gating on GABAB receptor activity regulates thalamic network oscillations.

    A deleterious gene-by-environment interaction imposed by calcium channel blockers in Marfan syndrome

    Jefferson J Doyle et al.
    Calcium channel blockers accelerate aortic aneurysm and cause premature aortic rupture in a mouse model of Marfan syndrome through protein kinase C-mediated activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase.

    A comprehensive search for calcium binding sites critical for TMEM16A calcium-activated chloride channel activity

    Jason Tien et al.
    The identification of four acidic amino acids as potential calcium-binding residues in the TMEM16A calcium-activated chloride channel furthers the molecular understanding of this ion channel family.

    Recurrent gain of function mutation in calcium channel CACNA1H causes early-onset hypertension with primary aldosteronism

    Ute I Scholl et al.
    A novel Mendelian disease featuring early-onset hypertension is caused by a recurrent gain of function mutation in CACNA1H, which encodes the voltage-gated calcium channel Cav3.2.

    Atypical calcium regulation of the PKD2-L1 polycystin ion channel

    Paul G DeCaen et al.
    Outward calcium ion currents desensitize the human PKD2-L1 ion channel via a mechanism that is independent of cytosolic motifs.

    Ion channels and calcium signaling in motile cilia

    Julia F Doerner et al.
    Direct patch clamp of ependymal motile cilia reveals that voltage-gated calcium channels in the cell body dominate their electrical and calcium signaling properties.

    The active-zone protein Munc13 controls the use-dependence of presynaptic voltage-gated calcium channels

    Nathaniel Calloway et al.
    Munc13, a protein that is essential for exocytosis, controls the behavior of voltage gated calcium channels and shapes synaptic plasticity on fast time scales.

    Calcium influx through CRAC channels controls actin organization and dynamics at the immune synapse

    Catherine A Hartzell et al.
    By restricting actin polymerization to the perimeter of the immune synapse and promoting depolymerization, calcium influx drives centripetal actin flow, which confines CRAC channels and the endoplasmic reticulum to the synapse center.

    Inhibitory peptidergic modulation of C. elegans serotonin neurons is gated by T-type calcium channels

    Kara E Zang et al.
    Genetic analysis of how neuropeptides control C. elegans reproductive behavior shows how T-type calcium channels engage and disengage target neurons from these critical regulators of neural circuits and behavior.
