Latest Potassium channel Stories
Brandeis University researchers have unlocked a controversial structure in heart cells responsible for regulating heart contractions.
Scientists have figured out how calcium channels – the infinitesimal cell membrane pores that generate electrical signals by gating a charged-particle influx – have solved a "needle in a haystack" problem.
Just 12 molecules of water cause the long post-activation recovery period required by potassium ion channels before they can function again.
An epilepsy drug shows promise in an animal model at preventing tinnitus from developing after exposure to loud noise.
The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is one of evolution's most direct enforcers.
Sophion and CreaCell announced today that the two companies successfully demonstrated the performances of HEK-hKir2.1 cells on QPatch HT. (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Tiny pores, or channels, embedded in cell membranes are critical to the healthy functioning of cells.
Researchers have discovered a new link between the time of day and sudden cardiac death (SCD). Abnormal heart rhythms are the most common cause of sudden cardiac death, which happens most often in the morning hours, followed by a smaller peak during the evening hours.
The future of drug design lies in developing therapies that can target specific cellular processes without causing adverse reactions in other areas of the nervous system.
BK channels (large-conductance, Ca2+-dependent K+ channels) are essential for the regulation of important biological processes such as smooth muscle tone and neuronal excitability.
