    Knockout of Slo2.2 enhances itch, abolishes KNa current, and increases action potential firing frequency in DRG neurons

    Pedro L Martinez-Espinosa et al.
    Sodium-activated potassium ion currents encoded by the kcnt1 gene delay action potential firing in DRG neurons by activity preceding an action potential.

    Synaptic representation of locomotion in single cerebellar granule cells

    Kate Powell et al.
    The first patch-clamp recordings from single cerebellar granule cells during locomotion reveal that the entire step sequence can be predicted from both excitatory synaptic input and output spikes from a single neuron.

    Ion channels and calcium signaling in motile cilia

    Julia F Doerner et al.
    Direct patch clamp of ependymal motile cilia reveals that voltage-gated calcium channels in the cell body dominate their electrical and calcium signaling properties.

    The nucleosomal acidic patch relieves auto-inhibition by the ISWI remodeler SNF2h

    Nathan Gamarra et al.
    Auto-inhibition of ISWI-family ATP-dependent chromatin remodelers is relieved by a conserved feature of the nucleosome.

    Complex structures of Rsu1 and PINCH1 reveal a regulatory mechanism of the ILK/PINCH/Parvin complex for F-actin dynamics

    Haibin Yang et al.
    Structural, biochemical, and cell biology study revealed that Rsu1, through binding to PINCH1, inhibits the actin bundling ability of ILK/PINCH/Parvin to regulate the actin dynamics at focal adhesion.

    Autoimmunity: Bringing on the itch

    Daniel A Waizman et al.
    Neutrophils are the first immune cells that enter the skin and cause itch in atopic dermatitis.

    Cooperation between tropomyosin and α-actinin inhibits fimbrin association with actin filament networks in fission yeast

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    The contractile ring actin binding proteins tropomyosin Cdc8 and a-actinin Ain1 synergize to effectively compete with the endocytic actin patch protein fimbrin Fim1 for associating with F-actin networks.

    Asymmetry between the two acidic patches dictates the direction of nucleosome sliding by the ISWI chromatin remodeler

    Robert F Levendosky, Gregory D Bowman
    Unlike Chd1, ISWI remodelers preferentially shift asymmetric nucleosomes toward the side possessing a wild type acidic patch, regardless of DNA lengths flanking the nucleosome.

    Multi-neuron intracellular recording in vivo via interacting autopatching robots

    Suhasa B Kodandaramaiah et al.
    A robot capable of automatically obtaining blind whole cell patch clamp recordings from multiple neurons simultaneously guides four interacting electrodes in a coordinated fashion, avoiding mechanical coupling in the brain.

    Pruriception and neuronal coding in nociceptor subtypes in human and nonhuman primates

    Amanda Klein et al.
    MRGPRD and MRGRPX1 are co-expressed in primate DRG neurons, but β-alanine and BAM8-22, preferentially activate CMH-subclasses, and co-activating different cutaneous nociceptors by pruritogens does not change itch sensation to pain.
