A key player in cell death moonlights as a mediator of inflammation
(Kanazawa University) Researchers from Kanazawa University have found that gasdermin D, a protein known to be involved in cell death, is crucial for maturation and release of interleukin-1α, an important inflammatory mediator. When the inflammasome is activated, caspase-1 cleaves gasdermin D into two parts: one of these parts travels to the membrane, where it forms a pore that allows calcium influx and activation of calpains, promoting interleukin-1α activation and exit from cells.

Photoinduced receptor confinement drives ligand-independent GPCR signaling
Cell-cell communication relies on the assembly of receptor-ligand complexes at the plasma membrane. The spatiotemporal receptor organization has a pivotal role in evoking cellular responses. We studied the clustering of heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide–binding protein (G protein)–coupled receptors (GPCRs) and established a photoinstructive matrix with ultrasmall lock-and-key interaction pairs to control lateral membrane organization of hormone neuropeptide Y2 receptors in living cells by light. Within seconds, receptor clustering was modulated in size, location, and density. After in situ confinement, changes ...

Dinitrogen complexation and reduction at low-valent calcium
Here we report that attempted preparation of low-valent CaI complexes in the form of LCa-CaL (where L is a bulky β-diketiminate ligand) under dinitrogen (N2) atmosphere led to isolation of LCa(N2)CaL, which was characterized crystallographically. The N22 anion in this complex reacted in most cases as a very potent two-electron donor. Therefore, LCa(N2)CaL acts as a synthon for the low-valent CaI complex LCa-CaL, which was the target of our studies. The N22 anion could also be protonated to diazene (N2H2) that disproportionated to hydrazine and N2. The role of Ca d orbitals for N2 activation is discussed. (Source: ScienceNOW)
