    Mechanically stimulated ATP release from murine bone cells is regulated by a balance of injury and repair

    Nicholas Mikolajewicz et al.
    Bone cells exposed to physiological forces release ATP through repairable membrane injury, generating an intercellular signal that conveys the destructive potential of forces and the adaptive capacity of endangered cells.

    PIP2 depletion promotes TRPV4 channel activity in mouse brain capillary endothelial cells

    Osama F Harraz et al.
    TRPV4 channels in brain capillaries are suppressed by the phosphoinositide PIP2 and activated by receptor agonists implicated in neurovascular coupling.

    Symmetry transitions during gating of the TRPV2 ion channel in lipid membranes

    Lejla Zubcevic et al.
    Ligand-induced two-fold symmetric arrangement in TRPV2 is observed in the native-like nanodisc-reconstituted condition using cryo-electron microscopy.

    Rhodoquinone biosynthesis in C. elegans requires precursors generated by the kynurenine pathway

    Samantha Del Borrello et al.
    Parasitic helminths infect over a billion humans and use unusual anaerobic metabolism that needs a rare electron carrier, Rhodoquinone (RQ), whose synthesis requires the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation.

    The ion selectivity filter is not an activation gate in TRPV1-3 channels

    Andrés Jara-Oseguera et al.
    The TRPV1, TRPV2 and TRPV3 channels are gated on the cytosolic side of the pore, whereas structural changes in the ion selectivity filter associated with activation don't control cation access.

    Affimer proteins are versatile and renewable affinity reagents

    Christian Tiede et al.
    The Affimer technology represents renewable binding reagents for molecular biology, which provides research scientists and industry with an alternative to the recently criticised use of animal-produced antibodies.

    Phosphorylation of β-arrestin2 at Thr383 by MEK underlies β-arrestin-dependent activation of Erk1/2 by GPCRs

    Elisabeth Cassier et al.
    Phosphoproteomics identifies β-arrestin 2 phosphorylation at Thr383 by MEK as a key step of GPCR-induced Erk½ activation, thus providing new insight into the molecular mechanism underlying β-arrestin-dependent GPCR-operated signaling.
