The effective higher-order binding cooperativities arising from an ensemble of dynamically interchanging conformations are identified and shown to fully describe integration of binding information at thermodynamic equilibrium.
A fluorometric analysis under voltage clamp shows the presence of a converged electric field in P2X2 channel with no canonical voltage-sensor and identifies the structural determinants for the voltage-dependent gating.
A spectroscopic analysis of the sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase (SERCA)-phospholamban membrane complex reveals the importance of the relative transmembrane orientation for inhibition or activation of the ATPase.
Syntactic structure-building processes can be applied to speech that is task-irrelevant and should be ignored, demonstrating that Selective Attention does not fully eliminate linguistic processing of competing speech.
Calculations of flagellar energetics from beating patterns in sperm reveal that internal dissipation by dynein motors and other passive structures within the flagellum significantly exceeds external hydrodynamic dissipation.
