    An essential and NSF independent role for α-SNAP in store-operated calcium entry

    Yong Miao et al.
    α-SNAP mediated rearrangement of Stim1 and Orai1 molecules within CRAC channel clusters is required for store-operated calcium entry.

    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.

    Maintenance of homeostatic plasticity at the Drosophila neuromuscular synapse requires continuous IP3-directed signaling

    Thomas D James et al.
    Synapses employ distinct acute and chronic signaling processes in order to maintain physiologically appropriate levels of function.

    Patient-specific mutations impair BESTROPHIN1’s essential role in mediating Ca2+-dependent Cl- currents in human RPE

    Yao Li et al.
    A multidisciplinary platform featured by patient-derived RPEs is established to study the disease-causing mechanisms of BEST1 mutations, and demonstrates gene-supplemented rescue of the mutation-caused deficiency in Ca2+-dependent Cl- current in human RPE.

    Oxidative stress induces stem cell proliferation via TRPA1/RyR-mediated Ca2+ signaling in the Drosophila midgut

    Chiwei Xu et al.
    In response to tissue damage, reactive oxygen species can be sensed by cation channels TRPA1/RyR to cause increases of cytosolic Ca2+ in intestinal stem cells, activating Ras/MAPK activity and stimulating stem cell proliferation in Drosophila.

    Near-infrared photoactivatable control of Ca2+ signaling and optogenetic immunomodulation

    Lian He et al.
    A near-infrared light-stimulable optogenetic platform enables remote and wireless manipulation of calcium signaling and immune responses both in vitro and in vivo to achieve tailored function.

    TINF2 is a haploinsufficient tumor suppressor that limits telomere length

    Isabelle Schmutz et al.
    Mutations in TIN2, a component of shelterin that keeps telomere length in check, lead to cancer-predisposition by disabling the telomere tumor suppressor pathway.

    Scleraxis-lineage cell depletion improves tendon healing and disrupts adult tendon homeostasis

    Katherine T Best et al.
    Adult Scleraxis-lineage cells are not required for successful tendon healing but are required for maintenance of tendon homeostasis.

    Genome streamlining in a minute herbivore that manipulates its host plant

    Robert Greenhalgh et al.
    The genome of a tiny tomato pest reveals mechanisms that underlie metazoan genome reduction.
