Researchers discover molecular mechanism that desensitizes us to cold
Mount Sinai School of Medicine researchers have discovered how the membrane protein that allows us to sense cold works and how this protein becomes desensitized so that one no longer feels the cold. The study, published this week as an advance online publication by Nature Neuroscience, focused on a...
Studies point to novel target for treating arrhythmias
In addition to demonstrating that a calcium-sensitizing drug could cause arrhythmias, Knollmann and colleagues showed that an agent that desensitizes
the myofilaments makes them less "willing" to bind calcium prevented arrhythmias. The drug they used is limited to in vitro testing, but the studies...
