    TRPM7 is critical for short-term synaptic depression by regulating synaptic vesicle endocytosis

    Zhong-Jiao Jiang et al.
    Electrophysiological and live-cell imaging analyses identify a presynaptic function of Ca2+ influx via transient receptor potential melastatin 7 (TRPM7) channels.

    Linking functional and molecular mechanisms of host resilience to malaria infection

    Tsukushi Kamiya et al.
    With a data-driven mathematical modelling approach, within-host ecological information alone can provide clues on the mechanistic basis of diverse malaria infection outcomes.

    A beta-glucosidase of an insect herbivore determines both toxicity and deterrence of a dandelion defense metabolite

    Meret Huber et al.
    An insect digestive enzyme metabolizes a plant defense compound and thereby modulates herbivore performance and host plant choice, which in turn may alter plant defense evolution in nature.

    Common host variation drives malaria parasite fitness in healthy human red cells

    Emily R Ebel et al.
    Human red blood cells from healthy donors display marked biophysical and genetic variation that impacts the growth of Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasites, outside of known disease alleles.

    Ectocytosis prevents accumulation of ciliary cargo in C. elegans sensory neurons

    Adria Razzauti, Patrick Laurent
    Disposal of ciliary proteins via ectosomes budding from cilia tip or cilia base acts as a safeguard mechanism when cilia trafficking functions are impaired.

    A morphological transformation in respiratory syncytial virus leads to enhanced complement deposition

    Jessica P Kuppan et al.
    Respiratory syncytial virus produces filamentous particles that change shape when the viral matrix detaches from the viral membrane, and this change in shape results in enhanced deposition of complement proteins, with potential downstream consequences.

    Membrane Proteins: Pain or gain?

    Valeria Kalienkova
    The 3D structures of a membrane protein called TMEM120A suggest that it may act as an enzyme in fat metabolism rather than as an ion channel that senses mechanical pain.
