    Episode 21: June 2015

    In this episode we hear about tinnitus and hyperacusis, salamanders, chemical harpoons, and the role of ultrasound and song in the mating rituals of mice and flies.

    Mechano-redox control of integrin de-adhesion

    Freda Passam et al.
    Ligand binding, force and chemistry combine to control the function of a cell surface receptor.
    1. Human Biology and Medicine

    Bioengineered human myobundles mimic clinical responses of skeletal muscle to drugs

    Lauran Madden et al.
    A novel bioengineered human skeletal muscle model with accurate physiological and pharmacological responses may provide a useful tool for preclinical testing.
    1. Plant Biology

    Anisotropic growth is achieved through the additive mechanical effect of material anisotropy and elastic asymmetry

    Firas Bou Daher et al.
    Growing upwards in the young seedling is controlled by two cooperative mechanical mechanisms: cellulose orientation in inner tissues and differential elasticity in epidermal cells.

    Arabidopsis formin 2 regulates cell-to-cell trafficking by capping and stabilizing actin filaments at plasmodesmata

    Min Diao et al.
    Cytological and biochemical analyses reveal Arabidopsis formin 2 is involved in regulating PD permeability by anchoring actin filaments to PD and stabilizing them through actin filament barbed end capping activity.

    Negative regulation of urokinase receptor activity by a GPI-specific phospholipase C in breast cancer cells

    Michiel van Veen et al.
    GDE3 is a transmembrane GPI-specific phospholipase C that sheds the urokinase receptor (uPAR) from the cell surface resulting in loss of uPAR function in breast cancer cells and reduced tumor growth.
    1. Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics

    Molecular mechanisms of human P2X3 receptor channel activation and modulation by divalent cation bound ATP

    Mufeng Li et al.
    Structural, computational and functional approaches reveal the role of an extended acidic chamber near the nucleotide binding site in activation of P2X3 receptor channels by divalent-bound ATP.

    Structure of a AAA+ unfoldase in the process of unfolding substrate

    Zev A Ripstein et al.
    The structure of a substrate-engaged AAA+ unfoldase suggests a model for processive unfolding that is supported by biochemical data.

    2. Evolutionary Biology

    Protein sequences bound to mineral surfaces persist into deep time

    Beatrice Demarchi et al.
    A chemically unstable ostrich eggshell peptide survives for at least 3.8 million years at the equator, stabilized by strong mineral interactions.
    1. Cell Biology

    Spatial quality control bypasses cell-based limitations on proteostasis to promote prion curing

    Courtney L Klaips et al.
    Cell division imposes a limit on proteostasis capacity by reducing chaperone accumulation, but chaperone-substrate interactions reverse these events to allow clearance of even chronically misfolded protein amyloids.
