    β-blockers augment L-type Ca2+ channel activity by targeting spatially restricted β2AR signaling in neurons

    Ao Shen et al.
    FRET biosensor-based measurement of cAMP signaling and single-channel recording reveal that β-blockers trigger local activation of adrenergic receptors and calcium channels in primary neurons.

    Kv2.1 mediates spatial and functional coupling of L-type calcium channels and ryanodine receptors in mammalian neurons

    Nicholas C Vierra et al.
    A potassium channel, as a nonconducting function, organizes compartmentalized neuronal calcium signaling microdomains via structural and functional coupling of plasma membrane and endoplasmic reticulum calcium channels.

    Cholesterol accessibility at the ciliary membrane controls hedgehog signaling

    Maia Kinnebrew et al.
    The patched hedgehog receptor inhibits the transmembrane transducer smoothened by reducing the accessibility of cholesterol locally at the membrane of the primary cilium.

    TrpML-mediated astrocyte microdomain Ca2+ transients regulate astrocyte–tracheal interactions

    Zhiguo Ma, Marc R Freeman
    Astrocyte microdomain calcium transients are mediated by TrpML, stimulated by ROS and tyramine, and mediate astrocyte–tracheal interactions in CNS gas exchange.

    Brain tumours repurpose endogenous neuron to microglia signalling mechanisms to promote their own proliferation

    Kelda Chia et al.
    P2ry12-mediated microglial interactions stimulate the proliferation of brain tumour initiating cells.

    Uni-directional ciliary membrane protein trafficking by a cytoplasmic retrograde IFT motor and ciliary ectosome shedding

    Muqing Cao et al.
    During cilium-generated signaling, ciliary membrane protein trafficking is unidirectional and ciliary membrane protein composition is regulated through action in the cytoplasm of the retrograde intraflagelllar transport (IFT) motor and shedding of ciliary ectosomes.

    Calmodulin-controlled spatial decoding of oscillatory Ca2+ signals by calcineurin

    Sohum Mehta et al.
    The ability of calcium waves to exert different effects on calcineurin activity depending on subcellular location is mediated by the distribution of calmodulin.

    Structural analysis of autoinhibition in the Ras-specific exchange factor RasGRP1

    Jeffrey S Iwig et al.
    A key activator of Ras signaling adopts an autoinhibited, dimeric conformation that is activated by membrane and calcium binding.

    A K+-selective CNG channel orchestrates Ca2+ signalling in zebrafish sperm

    Sylvia Fechner et al.
    Zebrafish sperm display an unusual pathway for Ca2+ signalling.

    Controlling fertilization and cAMP signaling in sperm by optogenetics

    Vera Jansen et al.
    Optogenetics is a non-invasive way to study cAMP signaling in sperm cells, which is able to control sperm motility and fertilization.
