Ketamine is an antagonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptor and an ion channel protein
The deletion, concerned with an in-frame deletion of 5 amino acid residues in a highly evolutionarily conserved region within the cytoplasmic loop domain of the gap junction channel protein
connexin 50 (Cx50), was in full cosegregation with the cataract phenotypes in the family but not found in 1100 control exomes.
com)-- Scientific experiments examining what happens to the faulty channel protein
that causes cystic fibrosis during inflammation have yielded unexpected and exciting results.
Aquaporins in Saccharomyces: characterization of a second functional water channel protein
Secondary structure and assembly mechanism of an oligomeric channel protein
The precise control of this movement relies on the direct physical interaction between a calcium channel protein
ryanodine receptor (RYR), and a calcium-sensing protein called calmodulin.
1 channel protein
is able to shorten action potential.
Using high throughput DNA sequencing methods they were able to pin down the underlying cause of the condition to mutations in the AQP5 gene, which encodes a water channel protein
known as aquaporin 5.
The CALHM1 channel protein
, which spans a taste bud cell's outer membrane to allow ions and molecules in and out, releases ATP to make a neural taste connection.
1 channel protein
levels were increased significantly after 18 h of hypoxia, while the protein level of [alpha]-actin was unchanged (Figure 2).
Although none of this progress addresses the damaged cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) ion channel protein
, these general approaches extended the median survival of patients with cystic fibrosis from around 10 years to nearly 40 years.
Based upon its abnormal distribution in SS salivary glands, a potential role of the water channel protein
aquaporin-5 (AQP-5) in the pathogenesis of SS was proposed.
