    The magnesium transporter A is activated by cardiolipin and is highly sensitive to free magnesium in vitro

    Saranya Subramani et al.
    A magnesium transporter from Escherichia coli depends strongly on the lipid cardiolipin and acts both as a sensor and a transporter of magnesium.

    Magnesium efflux from Drosophila Kenyon cells is critical for normal and diet-enhanced long-term memory

    Yanying Wu et al.
    Regulated neuronal magnesium efflux is a critical element of normal and magnesium-enhanced memory.

    Epithelial magnesium transport by TRPM6 is essential for prenatal development and adult survival

    Vladimir Chubanov et al.
    Mice deficient in the TRPM6 channel suffer from impaired prenatal development, shortened lifespan, growth deficit and disturbed energy balance due to a defect in epithelial Mg2+ uptake, thus highlighting a pivotal role of TRPM6 in organismal Mg2+ homeostasis.

    Membrane voltage dysregulation driven by metabolic dysfunction underlies bactericidal activity of aminoglycosides

    Giancarlo Noe Bruni, Joel M Kralj
    Aminoglycosides are a class of antibiotics that can kill Escherichia coli by building up internal voltage through disrupting the normal consumption of ATP.

    Cell-specific gain modulation by synaptically released zinc in cortical circuits of audition

    Charles T Anderson et al.
    Synaptic zinc is a novel modulator of cortical sound processing - a modulator that increases the gain of principal neurons, but reduces the gain of interneurons.

    Memory: A divalent boost from magnesium

    Willem J Laursen, Paul A Garrity
    Enhanced levels of dietary magnesium improve long-term memory in fruit flies.

    Single-cell dynamics of pannexin-1-facilitated programmed ATP loss during apoptosis

    Hiromi Imamura et al.
    Cleavage of pannexin-1 channel by caspases facilitates the loss of intracellular ATP level and attenuates glycolytic metabolism of apoptotic cells.

    Physical limits to magnetogenetics

    Markus Meister
    Recent reports on the ability of biological molecules to sense magnetic fields are found to be inconsistent with basic physical principles.

    The LRRK2 G2019S mutation alters astrocyte-to-neuron communication via extracellular vesicles and induces neuron atrophy in a human iPSC-derived model of Parkinson’s disease

    Aurelie de Rus Jacquet et al.
    Extracellular vesicles are proposed as novel, non-cell-autonomous mediators of neuronal atrophy in Parkinson's disease.

    A receptor-like kinase mutant with absent endodermal diffusion barrier displays selective nutrient homeostasis defects

    Alexandre Pfister et al.
    The SCHENGEN3 protein is needed for the progression of isolated microdomains into a continuous band, which is necessary for the establishment of the major extracellular diffusion barrier in plant roots: the Casparian strip.
