    Manipulation of neuronal activity using two-photon excitation of azobenzene photoswitches with near-infrared light has been recently demonstrated, but their practical use in neuronal tissue to photostimulate individual ...
  • Direction Selectivity in Drosophila Proprioceptors Requires the Mechanosensory Channel Tmc 

    He, Liping; Gulyanon, Sarun; Skanata, Mirna Mihovilovic; Karagyozov, Doycho; Heckscher, Ellie S.; Krieg, Michae; Tsechpenakis, Gavriil; Gershow, Marc; W. Daniel, Tracey, Jr (Sciencedirect, 2019-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Drosophila Transmembrane channel-like (Tmc) is a protein that functions in larval proprioception. The closely related TMC1 protein is required for mammalian hearing and is a pore-forming subunit of the hair cell ...
  • Atomic force microscopy-based mechanobiology 

    Krieg, Michael; Fläschner, Gotthold; Alsteens, David; Gaub, Benjamin M.; Roos, Wouter H.; Wuite, Gijs J. L.; Gaub, Hermann E.; Gerber, Christoph; Dufrêne, Yves F; Mülle, Daniel J. (Nature, 2018-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Mechanobiology emerges at the crossroads of medicine, biology, biophysics and engineering and describes how the responses of proteins, cells, tissues and organs to mechanical cues contribute to development, differentiation, ...
