    Extrinsic and intrinsic signals converge on the Runx1/CBFβ transcription factor for nonpeptidergic nociceptor maturation

    Siyi Huang et al.
    The extrinsic cue NGF and the intrinsic signal Islet1 converge at the level of the Runx1/CBFβ transcription factor complex formation to promote differentiation of a major nociceptor subtype.

    Sparse genetic tracing reveals regionally specific functional organization of mammalian nociceptors

    William Olson et al.
    Single-nociceptor tracing reveals a novel somatotopic organization for the mammalian pain system, and physiological recordings and peripheral optogenetic behavior assays suggest that it is a possible mechanism underlying region-specific pain sensation.

    Translational control of nociception via 4E-binding protein 1

    Arkady Khoutorsky et al.
    The mTOR downstream effector eukaryotic initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1 (4E-BP1) regulates mechanical nociception via translational control of synaptic transmission in the spinal cord.

    Nociceptive interneurons control modular motor pathways to promote escape behavior in Drosophila

    Anita Burgos et al.
    A class of interneuron is identified that promotes escape behavior downstream of nociceptor inputs via connections to nociceptive integrator and premotor networks.

    Upregulation of TRPM3 in nociceptors innervating inflamed tissue

    Marie Mulier et al.
    The expression and function of the cation channel TRPM3 is strongly increased in sensory neurons innervating inflamed tissue, likely contributing to inflammatory hyperalgesia and persistent pain.

    Neuronal processing of noxious thermal stimuli mediated by dendritic Ca2+ influx in Drosophila somatosensory neurons

    Shin-Ichiro Terada et al.
    Drosophila polymodal nociceptors use precipitous fluctuation of the firing rate, which depends on Ca2+ influx, as a key signal encoding a heat sensation and evoking the robust heat avoidance behavior.

    Antinociceptive modulation by the adhesion GPCR CIRL promotes mechanosensory signal discrimination

    Sven Dannhäuser et al.
    An interdisciplinary approach uncovers a new antinociceptive molecular mechanism and shows that the adhesion GPCR CIRL adjusts the sensation of gentle touch and noxious mechanical insult in opposite directions.

    Cell-specific exon methylation and CTCF binding in neurons regulate calcium ion channel splicing and function

    Eduardo Javier López Soto, Diane Lipscombe
    Cell-specific alternative splicing of the synaptic calcium channel gene Cacna1b is controlled by exon hypomethylation and CTCF binding and is disrupted following nerve injury.

    Pan-neuronal screening in Caenorhabditis elegans reveals asymmetric dynamics of AWC neurons is critical for thermal avoidance behavior

    Ippei Kotera et al.
    Functional screening of the entire neuronal network of C. elegans in response to specific stimuli can discover new neural behavior.
