The Activation of Persistent Inward Currents in Feline Spinal Motoneurons is Noise and Location-Dependent
The ability to control the output for a given input is an important feature of neurons as it allows them to respond to a multitude of inputs via the production of a scalable output. Using compartmental models of morphologically ...
The Calmodulin-Like Protein CML42 is Involved in Trichome Branching in Arabidopsis
The Snedden lab has been studying a family of Ca2+-binding proteins from Arabidopsis that are related to the prototypical Ca2+ sensor calmodulin (CaM) and are termed CMLs (CaM-like proteins). Previous work on CML42 ...
REGULATORY DOMAINS OF THE HUMAN CALPAIN FAMILY
Calpains are intracellular enzymes that merge cysteine protease and calcium sensing activities together in one molecule. They respond to Ca2+ signals and modify the activity of their targets by selective proteolysis. ...
Calcium Influx and Release Controls Neuroendocrine Cell Secretion and Excitability
Ca2+ dynamics affect many critical cellular processes. In the bag cell neurons of Aplysia californica, intracellular Ca2+ is elevated during a prolonged period of firing known as the afterdischarge. This consists of a fast ...
