    Regulatory switch at the cytoplasmic interface controls TRPV channel gating

    Lejla Zubcevic et al.
    C-terminal domain of thermoTRPV channels regulates channel gating at the cytoplasmic interface through a switch-like process.

    The molecular basis for an allosteric inhibition of K+-flux gating in K2P channels

    Susanne Rinné et al.
    A combined systematic alanine scanning and molecular modelling approach reveals the molecular basis for an allosteric inhibition mechanism of K+-flux gating in K2P channels.

    celsr1a is essential for tissue homeostasis and onset of aging phenotypes in the zebrafish

    Chunmei Li et al.
    The use of forward genetic screens in zebrafish identifies a new model of vertebrate aging, defining the regulating of the onset of aging phenotypes through maintenance of progenitor cell populations.

    AMPK signaling to acetyl-CoA carboxylase is required for fasting- and cold-induced appetite but not thermogenesis

    Sandra Galic et al.
    A single mutation in acetyl-CoA carboxylase blocking AMPK regulation inhibits food intake in mice in response to cold exposure or fasting causing them to lose weight.

    Protein aggregates are associated with replicative aging without compromising protein quality control

    Juha Saarikangas, Yves Barral
    The aging lineage of budding yeast is differentiated by an early-appearing protein deposit that promotes protein quality control.

    Cerebellar involvement in an evidence-accumulation decision-making task

    Ben Deverett et al.
    In a new evidence-accumulation decision-making task, activity of the lateral posterior cerebellum is necessary for accurate performance, and somatic and dendritic activity in Purkinje cells contains choice/evidence and error-related information.

    The role of premature evidence accumulation in making difficult perceptual decisions under temporal uncertainty

    Ciara A Devine et al.
    Temporal uncertainty interferes with the timely onset of evidence accumulation in perceptual decision making prompting the brain to rely instead on statistical regularities in the temporal structure of the environment.

    Proteostasis collapse, a hallmark of aging, hinders the chaperone-Start network and arrests cells in G1

    David F Moreno et al.
    Cells accumulate damaged proteins during aging and, by compromising the function of chaperones in folding newly synthesized G1 cyclins, proteostasis breakdown inhibits cell-cycle entry and drives yeast cells into senescence.

    Insulin-like peptides and the mTOR-TFEB pathway protect Caenorhabditis elegans hermaphrodites from mating-induced death

    Cheng Shi et al.
    Hermaphroditic Caenorhabditis elegans slow the onset of mating-induced death through self-sperm-regulated insulin-like gene expression, which regulates the activity of the IIS/FOXO pathway, mTOR signaling, and the TFEB/HLH-30 transcription factor.

    An external sodium ion binding site controls allosteric gating in TRPV1 channels

    Andres Jara-Oseguera et al.
    Allosteric gating in a transient receptor potential channel is modulated by external sodium ions and a tarantula toxin.
