Bryan Research 103
Ardem Patapoutian employs innovative functional genomic techniques to identify and characterize novel ion channels and other sensors that translate mechanical energy into chemical signals. Piezo cation channels discovered by his lab are expressed in tissues where mechanical forces influence... Read More »

Jeff Stogsdill's talk is "Neuroligins control astrocyte morphogenesis and synaptic connectivity." He is a member of the Eroglu lab, which investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie synaptic connectivity in the CNS. Distinct from many other laboratories, we view astrocytes as... Read More »

From human twins to the products of division of a single bacterium, genetically identical organisms often develop into very different individuals and experience different life histories, even in identical environments. Such differences, and other instances of so-called non-genetic individuality,... Read More »

Several TRP ion channels are cold- or heat-activated, but the molecular mechanism mediating this is not fully understood. Here, we found that in TRPV1 large decreases in amino acid hydrophobicity are better tolerated for capsaicin activation than for heat activation, suggesting that strong... Read More »
