Latest Calcium channel Stories
Using some of the most powerful nuclear magnetic resonance equipment available, researchers at the University of California, Davis, are making discoveries about the shape and structure of biological molecules -- potentially leading to new ways to treat or prevent diseases such as breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
The human genome encodes 243 voltage-gated ion channels.
Pacemaker cells in the sinoatrial node control heart rate, but what controls the ticking of these pacemaker cells?
Scientists in the Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Calgary, have discovered a new mechanism that nerve cells (neurons) use to fine-tune their electrical output.
UCSF researchers have discovered that a protein called B1N1 is necessary for the heart to contract.
Screening drugs that work against defects in the tiny pores or channels that allow calcium to flow in and out cells is already easier because of a specially bred mouse that has the "pure" form of absence seizures (brief lapses in consciousness) usually seen in children, said researchers at Baylor College of Medicine in a report that appears in the current issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
Expanded drug discovery and development services, cell lines, and reagents now cover nearly half of the known drugable genome CLEVELAND, Feb.
