Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: New proton ‘starter’ for optogenetics

(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) Researchers described a new optogenetic tool -- a protein called NsXeR, which belongs to the class of xenorhodopsins. When exposed to light, it can activate individual neurons, making them send set signals to the nervous system. Apart from applications in nervous system research, xenorhodopsins may also take over muscle cell control.
