The gene transient receptor potential-melastatin-like 7 (Trpm7) encodes a protein that functions as an ion channel and a kinase. TRPM7 has been proposed to be required for cellular Mg2+ homeostasis in vertebrates. Deletion of mouse Trpm7 revealed that it is essential for embryonic development. Tissue-specific deletion of Trpm7 in the T cell lineage(More)
Transient receptor potential (TRP) channels are a superfamily of functionally versatile cation-permeant ion channels present in almost all mammalian cell types. Although they were initially proposed as store-operated calcium channels, recent progress shows that they exhibit a variety of regulatory and functional themes. Here, we summarize the most salient(More)
Caspase-11 is a highly inducible caspase that controls both inflammatory responses and cell death. Caspase-11 controls interleukin 1β (IL-1β) secretion by potentiating caspase-1 activation and induces caspase-1-independent pyroptosis downstream of noncanonical NLRP3 inflammasome activators such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and Gram-negative bacteria.(More)
In addition to a fundamental role in cellular bioenergetics, the purine nucleotide adenosine triphosphate (ATP) plays a crucial role in the extracellular space as a signaling molecule. ATP and its metabolites serve as ligands for a family of receptors that are collectively referred to as purinergic receptors. These receptors were first described and(More)
Neuropathic pain symptoms respond poorly to available therapeutics, with most treated patients reporting unrelieved pain and significant impairment in daily life. Here, we show that Pannexin 1 (Panx1) in hematopoietic cells is required for pain-like responses following nerve injury in mice, and a potential therapeutic target. Panx1 knockout mice (Panx1-/-)(More)
The computational approach is adopted and customized, as per the demand and requirement of scientific applications. The computational process is used for weather forecasting, land change detection and many more environmental applications. The Water Quality Index (WQI) computations are a process to determine the level of water in line to the purity(More)
A series of oxopyridobenzothiazines (azaphenothiazines) were prepared and evaluated for binding to the benzodiazepine receptor, anticonvulsant activity in the pentylenetetrazole-induced convulsion assay, and, in two cases, ability to increase punished responding in a standard conflict test. While parent compound 1a showed binding affinity comparable to(More)
