    TRPM7 is critical for short-term synaptic depression by regulating synaptic vesicle endocytosis

    Zhong-Jiao Jiang et al.
    Electrophysiological and live-cell imaging analyses identify a presynaptic function of Ca2+ influx via transient receptor potential melastatin 7 (TRPM7) channels.

    MACF1 controls skeletal muscle function through the microtubule-dependent localization of extra-synaptic myonuclei and mitochondria biogenesis

    Alireza Ghasemizadeh et al.
    Maintenance of peripheral myonuclei patterning in skeletal myofibers is dependent on the regulation of microtubules dynamic and nuclei motion and is essential for proper neuromuscular junction integrity and mitochondria homeostasis.

    Calcium dependence of neurotransmitter release at a high fidelity synapse

    Abdelmoneim Eshra et al.
    The Ca2+-dependence of vesicle priming, fusion, and replenishment at cerebellar mossy fiber boutons show a prominent Ca2+-dependent priming step, a shallow non-saturating dose-response curve up to 50 µM, and little Ca2+-dependence of sustained vesicle replenishment.

    Information content differentiates enhancers from silencers in mouse photoreceptors

    Ryan Z Friedman et al.
    Silencers and enhancers targeted by a common transcription factor in photoreceptors are distinguished by the number and diversity of binding transcription factor binding sites they contain.

    Unbiased identification of novel transcription factors in striatal compartmentation and striosome maturation

    Maria-Daniela Cirnaru et al.
    RNAseq and ATACseq are utilized to identify transcription factors participating in striatal compartmentation into striosome and matrix, and roles for Stat1, Olig2, and Foxf2 are validated in vitro and in vivo.

    Comparison of transcriptional initiation by RNA polymerase II across eukaryotic species

    Natalia Petrenko, Kevin Struhl
    Although the preinitiation complex for transcriptional initiation by RNA polymerase II contains highly conserved general transcription factors, there are kinetic and compositional differences in the initiation process among eukaryotic species.

    Structure and dynamics of the chromatin remodeler ALC1 bound to a PARylated nucleosome

    Luka Bacic et al.
    Analysis of conformational heterogeneity in cryo-EM data by a recently developed deep learning method reveals the structure and dynamics of the oncogenic chromatin remodeler ALC1 bound to a poly-ADP-ribosylated nucleosome.

    A prion accelerates proliferation at the expense of lifespan

    David M Garcia et al.
    In its capacity to switch into a heritable, prionogenic form, a conserved RNA-modifying enzyme epigenetically alters fundamental growth, aging, and protein synthesis properties of eukaryotic cells.

    A quadratic model captures the human V1 response to variations in chromatic direction and contrast

    Michael A Barnett et al.
    A quantitative forward model captures fMRI responses to chromatic stimuli in human primary visual cortex and quantifies how chromatic sensitivity changes with eccentricity.

    Aorta smooth muscle-on-a-chip reveals impaired mitochondrial dynamics as a therapeutic target for aortic aneurysm in bicuspid aortic valve disease

    Mieradilijiang Abudupataer et al.
    An aorta smooth muscle-on-a-chip model indicated that NOTCH1 insufficiency in HAoSMCs induced phenotypic switching from a contractile to a synthetic phenotype accompanied by an impairment of mitochondrial fusion, implying its potential role as a therapeutic target for BAV-TAA.
