COVER This week's issue features a Research Article that demonstrates how the calcium-sensitive protein VILIP1 binds to and modulates the mobility and activity of the purinergic receptor P2X2. The cover is based on an image that shows FRET interactions between P2X2-CFP and VILIP1-YFP in hippocampal dendrites. [Image: Severine Chaumont and Baljit S.
