    Control of feeding by Piezo-mediated gut mechanosensation in Drosophila

    Soohong Min et al.
    Gut-innervating sensory neurons detect large food volumes and inhibit feeding in Drosophila through the mechanically gated ion channel Piezo.

    Generation of stress fibers through myosin-driven reorganization of the actin cortex

    Jaakko I Lehtimäki et al.
    Live-cell microscopy studies revealed that stress fibers can be generated de novo from the actin cortex without the involvement of stress fiber precursors.

    Mechanistic insights into volatile anesthetic modulation of K2P channels

    Aboubacar Wague et al.
    The volatile anesthetic isoflurane directly binds to the transmembrane domains of the TREK1 channel to allosterically modulate its function.

    Diverse and complex muscle spindle afferent firing properties emerge from multiscale muscle mechanics

    Kyle P Blum et al.
    Diverse muscle spindle firing, critical for a range of sensorimotor behaviors, is compactly explained by first principles of force development in specialized muscle fibers within the sensors.

    Systematic examination of low-intensity ultrasound parameters on human motor cortex excitability and behavior

    Anton Fomenko et al.
    Transcranial low-intensity ultrasound applied in block design and at low duty cycles and longer sonication durations can safely and non-invasively suppress human motor-evoked potentials, possibly via GABA-A-mediated inhibitory pathways.
  1. Ion channels: A Collection of Articles

    Edited by Kenton J Swartz et al.
    eLife has published papers on topics related to the molecular structure and functional mechanisms of a diverse array of ion channel proteins.

    Talin-activated vinculin interacts with branched actin networks to initiate bundles

    Rajaa Boujemaa-Paterski et al.
    At adhesion sites, talin-activated vinculin promotes interactions with the actin network that initiates bundles.

    Molecular mechanism for direct actin force-sensing by α-catenin

    Lin Mei et al.
    Biophysical and structural studies reveal how low piconewton forces across actin enhance binding by the critical cell-cell adhesion protein α-catenin versus its force insensitive homolog vinculin.
