This incredibly small structure was used to record, with great clarity, the inner activity of primary neurons and other electrogenic cells, and the device has the capacity for multi-channel recordings.
Another study by Tse C found the protein EspP secreted by enterohaemorrhagic Escherichiacoli may act as an enterotoxin and drive electrogenic ion transport that could be a principle factor causing watery diarrhoea.4

This process is mediated by the sodium-iodine symporter (NIS), a 13-transmembrane domain glycoprotein that relies on the sodium ([Na.sup.+]) electrochemical gradient created by the [Na.sup.+]/K+ ATPase and allows active concentration of iodine by electrogenic symport of sodium (2:1 [Na.sup.+] to [I.sup.-] stoichiometry).
The presence of VFAs in an MFC substrate can increase the electrogenic performance of its anodic microbial biofilm [5].
sativa seeds extract dramatically inhibits the intestinal electrogenic absorption of glucose in vitro [113].
who confirmed the mechanism of TRPM2 in downregulating ROS production, which is that TRPM2 increases membrane depolarization and thereby inhibits electrogenic activity of NADPH oxidase and blocks ROS production as a result [20].
Impact of RBD diet for 7 days on basal short-circuit, electrogenic ion transport and tissue resistance
The 5% SDPP diet reduced colonic short-circuit current, an index of net electrogenic ion transport, and fecal scores.
excess voltage is provided by the plasma membrane electrogenic
The NIS activity is electrogenic and dependent on the Na+ gradient generated by the Na+/K+ATPase pump.
