    Mechanical sensitivity of Piezo1 ion channels can be tuned by cellular membrane tension

    Amanda H Lewis, Jörg Grandl
    Tension is the activating stimulus of Piezo1 mechanosensitive ion channels and resting membrane tension modulates overall channel sensitivity to mechanical stimulation.

    TMEM87a/Elkin1, a component of a novel mechanoelectrical transduction pathway, modulates melanoma adhesion and migration

    Amrutha Patkunarajah et al.
    A novel mechanoelectrical transduction pathway can regulate the interactions of melanoma cells and their surrounding microenvironment, impacting both migration and cell dissociation from organotypic spheroids.
  1. Research: Publication bias and the canonization of false facts

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.
