- Propping Up Our Knowledge of G Protein Signaling Pathways: Diverse Functions of Putative Noncanonical Gβ Subunits in Fungi
Proteins that adopt a conformation like that of Gβ serve various functions in G protein signaling.
The neural circuit for scratching in turtles unexpectedly shows periodic waves of simultaneous excitatory and inhibitory synaptic activity, rather than the anticipated alternating oscillations.
Furrow formation is initiated during gastrulation when a protein in the outer membrane of epithelial cells binds a cytoskeletal modulator, constricting the outer part of the cells.
