TMEM120A/TACAN inhibits mechanically activated Piezo2 channels

The data do not support TACAN being a mechanically activated ion channel, and identify it as a negative modulator of Piezo2 channel activity, and provide no support for its proposed role in nociceptive dorsal root ganglion neurons.

Tentonin 3/TMEM150C senses blood pressure changes in the aortic arch.

It is shown that tentonin 3 (TTN3/TMEM150C), a cation channel activated by mechanical strokes, is essential for detecting AP changes in the aortic arch and overexpression of TTN3 in the NG of Ttn3-/- mice reversed the cardiovascular changes observed in Ttn2- +/- mice.

Molecular basis of tactile specialization in the duck bill

The molecular characterization of embryonic duck bill is presented, which is shown to contain a high density of mechanosensory corpuscles innervated by functional rapidly adapting trigeminal afferents, providing insights into the molecular basis of mechanotransduction in a tactile-specialist vertebrate.

Integrated Analysis of lncRNA and mRNA in Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue of Ningxiang Pig

The transcription profiles and functional networks in long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) and messenger RNA (mRNA) in subcutaneous adipose tissue of Ningxiang piglets are discovered and it is shown that modules 2 and 5 have a similar mode of transcription for both mRNA and lncRNA, and were mainly participated in steroid biosynthesis, glycosphingolipid biosynthetic pathways, metabolic pathways, and glycerolipids metabolism.



A role for Piezo2 in EPAC1-dependent mechanical allodynia

It is shown that Epac1 (cyclic AMP sensor) potentiation of Piezo2-mediated mechanotransduction contributes to mechanical allodynia during neuropathic pain, and the Epac-selective cAMP analogue 8-pCPT sensitizes mechanically evoked currents in sensory neurons.

Piezo2 is required for Merkel cell mechanotransduction

The results indicate that Piezo2 is the Merkel-cell mechanotransduction channel and provide the first line of evidence thatPiezo channels have a physiological role in mechanosensation in mammals, and present evidence for a two-receptor-site model, in which both Merkel cells and innervating afferents act together as mechanosensors.

Piezo1 integration of vascular architecture with physiological force

Piezo1 channels are shown as sensors of frictional force (shear stress) and determinants of vascular structure in both development and adult physiology and the data suggest that Piezo 1 channels function as pivotal integrators in vascular biology.

Functional role of mechanosensitive ion channel Piezo1 in human periodontal ligament cells.

Piezo1 exerts a transduction role in mechanical stress-induced osteoclastogenesis in hPDLCs, and cyclooxygenase-2, receptor activator of NF-κB ligand, and prostaglandin E2 were significantly upregulated under static compressive stimuli.

TRPV1 structures in distinct conformations reveal mechanisms of activation

Pharmacological probes are exploited to determine structures of two activated states of the capsaicin receptor, TRPV1, and allosteric coupling between upper and lower gates may account for rich physiological modulation exhibited by TRpV1 and other TRP channels.

Molecular mechanisms of mechanotransduction in mammalian sensory neurons

The recent identification of novel families of proteins as mechanosensing molecules will undoubtedly accelerate the understanding of mechanotransduction mechanisms in mammalian somatosensation.

A novel chloride conductance activated by extracellular ATP in mouse parotid acinar cells

IATPCl expressed in acinar cells reflects the activation of a novel ATP‐gated Cl− channel that may play an important physiological role in salivary gland fluid secretion.
