Researchers studied the mechanism by which the anticonvulsant Retigabine enhances the activity of K+ channels and found that the drug stabilizes on open state at resting membrane potentials.
Researchers have measured the ability of nerve terminals to buffer Ca2+ entering in response to electrical activity to better understand plasticity of hormone release.
Contributions of protein kinases and β-arrestin to termination of protease-activated receptor 2 signaling
Systematic imaging studies and modeling reveal new details of the regulation of the Gq-coupled GPCR, protease-activated receptor 2, by phosphorylation and β-arrestin.
Reverberation of excitation in neuronal networks interconnected through voltage-gated gap junction channels
Voltage-dependent gap junction gating contributes to reverberation in neuronal circuits.
