Comparative Analysis of Bat Genomes Provides Insight into the Evolution of Flight and Immunity
Bat Genomes Bats are of great interest because of their ability to fly and as hosts for infectious disease. Zhang et al. (p. 456, published online 20 December) sequenced the genomes of two distantlyExpand

Synaptotagmin-1 and Synaptotagmin-7 Trigger Synchronous and Asynchronous Phases of Neurotransmitter Release
In forebrain neurons, knockout of synaptotagmin-1 blocks fast Ca(2+)-triggered synchronous neurotransmitter release but enables manifestation of slow Ca(2+)-triggered asynchronous release. Here, weExpand

Syntaxin‐1 N‐peptide and Habc‐domain perform distinct essential functions in synaptic vesicle fusion
Among SNARE proteins mediating synaptic vesicle fusion, syntaxin‐1 uniquely includes an N‐terminal peptide (‘N‐peptide’) that binds to Munc18‐1, and a large, conserved Habc‐domain that also binds toExpand

Doc2 Supports Spontaneous Synaptic Transmission by a Ca2+-Independent Mechanism
Two families of Ca(2+)-binding proteins have been proposed as Ca(2+) sensors for spontaneous release: synaptotagmins and Doc2s, with the intriguing possibility that Doc2s may represent high-affinityExpand
