    Murine Fam65b forms ring-like structures at the base of stereocilia critical for mechanosensory hair cell function

    Bo Zhao et al.
    Super-resolution microscopy reveals a highly organized compartment in the stereocilia of mechanosensory hair cells of the inner ear, which is critical for hair cell function and affected in disease.

    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.

    Large-scale filament formation inhibits the activity of CTP synthetase

    Rachael M Barry et al.
    The accumulation of its product, cytidine triphosphate, encourages the enzyme CTP synthetase (CtpS) to form large-scale polymers and inhibits the enzyme's activity.

    IRBIT controls apoptosis by interacting with the Bcl-2 homolog, Bcl2l10, and by promoting ER-mitochondria contact

    Benjamin Bonneau et al.
    IRBIT and the Bcl-2 homolog Bcl2l10 form a complex at the endoplasmic reticulum that controls Ca2+ signaling, however IRBIT turns into an apoptosis facilitator following stress and inhibits anti-apoptotic activity of Bcl2l10.

    An evidence based hypothesis on the existence of two pathways of mitochondrial crista formation

    Max E Harner et al.
    Lamellar and tubular cristae in mitochondria form by two different molecular pathways that form both involve F1FO-ATP synthase dimers and the MICOS complex, but formation of lamellar cristae also relies on Mgm1/Opa1.

    Genomic mosaicism with increased amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene copy number in single neurons from sporadic Alzheimer's disease brains

    Diane M Bushman et al.
    Somatically derived genomic mosaicism in the form of increased DNA content and APP copy number in single neurons plausibly has a function in sporadic Alzheimer’s disease and points to functions for single-neuron gene copy number changes.

    Axons: The cost of communication in the brain

    Brian A MacVicar et al.
    Imaging ATP in axons reveals that they rely on glucose from the blood and lactate produced by glial cells as sources of energy.
