    MCTP is an ER-resident calcium sensor that stabilizes synaptic transmission and homeostatic plasticity

    Özgür Genç et al.
    MCTP is a novel presynaptic calcium sensor, resident within the endoplasmic reticulum, that is required for normal baseline neurotransmission, short-term synaptic plasticity and presynaptic homeostatic plasticity.

    Doc2B acts as a calcium sensor for vesicle priming requiring synaptotagmin-1, Munc13-2 and SNAREs

    Sébastien Houy et al.
    Doc2B functions in two distinct vesicle priming steps; membrane localization occludes upstream Ca2+-dependent priming, whereas Ca2+-binding and interaction with synaptotagmin-1, SNAREs, and Munc13-2 are involved in downstream priming, which makes vesicles readily releasable.

    Protein kinase C is a calcium sensor for presynaptic short-term plasticity

    Diasynou Fioravante et al.
    Genetic and electrophysiology experiments provide the first direct evidence that protein kinase C is a calcium-sensing protein in post-tetanic potentiation, a form of synaptic plasticity that supports short-term memory.

    Guanylate cyclase 1 relies on rhodopsin for intracellular stability and ciliary trafficking

    Jillian N Pearring et al.
    Rather than relying on intrinsic intracellular targeting information, the key phototransduction enzyme guanylate cyclase 1 is delivered to the photosensory cilium with the visual pigment rhodopsin.

    KChIP3 coupled to Ca2+ oscillations exerts a tonic brake on baseline mucin release in the colon

    Gerard Cantero-Recasens et al.
    KChIP3 localisation by intracellular calcium oscillations controls mucin release from colonic goblet cells.

    Coding of stimulus strength via analog calcium signals in Purkinje cell dendrites of awake mice

    Farzaneh Najafi et al.
    Sensory-driven calcium spikes in Purkinje cells are not binary; instead, they are graded and can provide information about the strength of a periocular airpuff stimulus known to drive learning.

    2018 Gairdner Awards: The past, present and future of light-gated ion channels and optogenetics

    Sheena A Josselyn
    Research into light-gated ion channels called channelrhodospins laid the foundations for the development of optogenetics, a technique that has gone on to revolutionize neuroscience.
