50-year-old Mystery Solved: Protein Tags Regulate Key Ion Channel

... world. Ion channels allow ions such as potassium, sodium and calcium to flow in and out and so are key regulators of many fundamental processes in biology. "Ions are the currency of the cellular world," explained Goldstein. "Cells collect some ions, others they discharge. Ions are stored, spent, and excha...

Some Brain Cells 'Change Channels' To Fine-tune The Message

...d by ones made of GluR2 and GluR3. After the swap, sodium can still get in, but calcium is kept out. To learn more about how this takes place, the Hopkins researchers studied brain cells from genetically engineered mice. Through their experiments, the researchers determined that the PICK1 and NSF proteins ...

At the molecular level, the predator is the prey

...s is tsNa(V)1.4, a tube-shaped protein that allows sodium ions to flow into the cell. When nerve cells' ability to move sodium in and out is hampered, paralysis and death can result. Tetrodotoxin (TTX), a powerful paralytic poi...

University of Nevada, Reno research team discovers hormone that causes malaria mosquito to urinate

...quito causes the mosquito to excrete fluid rich in sodium chloride, the main salt in blood. "Only DH31 causes the massive loss of sodium chloride which causes the mosquito to pee," Schooley said. "Stimulation of this process when the mo...

Gene therapy to lower blood pressure just enough

...improves the manner in which the kidney eliminates sodium or salt from the body and inhibits other systems, such as the sympathetic nervous system, believed linked to development of high blood pressure. "This makes ANP an attractive agent for use in treating blood pressure," said O'Malley. "However, its u...

Enzyme affects hypertension by controlling salt levels in body

The cytotoxicity of undecorated SWNTs was 200 parts per billion, which compares to the level of 20 parts per billion identified last year for undecorated buckyballs. The modified nanotubes were non-cytotoxic. While cell...

Storing carbon to combat global warming may cause other environmental problems, study suggests

Analyzing the bacterium's genome, researchers found that S. ruber's proteins are typically rich in acidic amino acids and relatively poor in hydrophobic (water-repellent) ...

Sweet 'water taste' paradoxically predicts sweet taste inhibitors
