    Screening of candidate substrates and coupling ions of transporters by thermostability shift assays

    Homa Majd et al.
    It is technically difficult to identify transport proteins, but here a method is presented that exploits the principle that they are stabilized in detergent solution when they bind their substrate.

    An adaptation of astronomical image processing enables characterization and functional 3D mapping of individual sites of excitation-contraction coupling in rat cardiac muscle

    Qinghai Tian et al.
    The fusion of astronomy and cellular cardiology reveals the 3D arrangement and the firing reliability of active excitation-contraction coupling sites in beating cardiac myocytes.
    1. Neuroscience

    Sub-second dynamics of theta-gamma coupling in hippocampal CA1

    Lu Zhang et al.
    A combination of signal processing and machine learning form a new approach to classify oscillatory coupling in single cycles without averaging over time and to capture cycle-by-cycle changes in coupling.

    Decoupling from yolk sac is required for extraembryonic tissue spreading in the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita

    Francesca Caroti et al.
    Extraembryonic tissue spreading in the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita requires mechanical decoupling from the underlying yolk sac.

    Phase-amplitude coupling supports phase coding in human ECoG

    Andrew J Watrous et al.
    Electrocorticography (ECoG) reveals that phase-amplitude coupling relates to phase-dependent coding in the human brain.
  1. Research: Decoupling of the minority PhD talent pool and assistant professor hiring in medical school basic science departments in the US

    Kenneth D Gibbs Jr et al.
    A systems-level analysis of the biomedical workforce in the US shows that current strategies to enhance faculty diversity are unlikely to have a significant impact, and that there is a need to increase the number of PhDs from underrepresented minority backgrounds who move on to postdoctoral positions.

    Domain–domain interactions determine the gating, permeation, pharmacology, and subunit modulation of the IKs ion channel

    Mark A Zaydman et al.
    Contrary to a generally accepted principle, the pore properties of KCNQ1 channels depend on the states of voltage-sensing domains activation; KCNE1 alters the voltage-sensing domains-pore coupling to modulate KCNQ1 channel properties.

    Coupled ion binding and structural transitions along the transport cycle of glutamate transporters

    Grégory Verdon et al.
    Crystal structures of an archaeal homologue of mammalian glutamate transporters in apo and ion-only bound outward- and inward-facing states reveal ion-coupled conformational changes supporting mechanisms of coupling, gating, and transport.

    Ion counting demonstrates a high electrostatic field generated by the nucleosome

    Magdalena Gebala et al.
    First experimental studies on the ion atmosphere around a nucleosome provide a quantitative analysis of the molecule's electrostatic properties.

    Kv2.1 mediates spatial and functional coupling of L-type calcium channels and ryanodine receptors in mammalian neurons

    Nicholas C Vierra et al.
    A potassium channel, as a nonconducting function, organizes compartmentalized neuronal calcium signaling microdomains via structural and functional coupling of plasma membrane and endoplasmic reticulum calcium channels.
