    Distinct roles for innexin gap junctions and hemichannels in mechanosensation

    Denise S Walker, William R Schafer
    The innexin protein UNC-7, a homologue of vertebrate pannexins, plays a specific, gap junction-independent role in C. elegans mechanosensation.

    Temporal processing and context dependency in Caenorhabditis elegans response to mechanosensation

    Mochi Liu et al.
    Caenorhabditis elegans behavioral response to a mechanosensory signal depends on both the temporal properties of the signal, such as its rate of change, and the animal's current behavior state.

    Neural circuitry of a polycystin-mediated hydrodynamic startle response for predator avoidance

    Luis A Bezares-Calderón et al.
    The Platynereis startle circuit links polycystin-dependent hydrodynamic sensors to muscle and ciliary effector cells.

    Stimulation of Piezo1 by mechanical signals promotes bone anabolism

    Xuehua Li et al.
    Mechanical stimuli activate Piezo1 in osteoblast lineage cells and thereby promote bone formation in part via Wnt1.

    Emergence of social cluster by collective pairwise encounters in Drosophila

    Lifen Jiang et al.
    Cascades of transient pairwise interactions, stabilized by multisensory inputs, drive the formation of a well-organized social structure from a group of loosely distributed flies.

    The mechanosensitive ion channel TRAAK is localized to the mammalian node of Ranvier

    Stephen G Brohawn et al.
    The mechanosensitive potassium channel TRAAK is localized to nodes of Ranvier is mammalian axons where it hyperpolarizes the resting potential and may contribute to mechanical repolarization of neurons.

    Structural relationship between the putative hair cell mechanotransduction channel TMC1 and TMEM16 proteins

    Angela Ballesteros et al.
    The structural relationship between TMC and TMEM16 proteins provides insight into the structure and functional mechanisms of the mechanotransduction channel complex in hair cells.

    Coding of whisker motion across the mouse face

    Kyle S Severson et al.
    Electrophysiology and information theory show that diverse classes of mechanoreceptors in the face inform the mouse brain about whisking.
