(Wiley-Blackwell, 2017-04-15)KEY POINTS: Voltage-gated sodium channels play a fundamental role in determining neuronal excitability. Specifically, voltage-gated sodium channel subtype NaV 1.7 is required for sensing acute and inflammatory somatic pain ...
Inhibition of Sec61-dependent translocation by mycolactone uncouples the integrated stress response from ER stress, driving cytotoxicity via translational activation of ATF4 Mycolactone is the exotoxin virulence factor of Mycobacterium ulcerans that causes the neglected tropical disease Buruli ulcer. We recently showed it to be a broad spectrum inhibitor of Sec61-dependent co-translational ...
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-12-12)Multi-domain voltage-gated ion channels appear to have evolved through sequential rounds of intragenic duplication from a primordial one-domain precursor. Whereas modularity within one-domain symmetrical channels is ...
