Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) is activated by redistribution of STIM1 into puncta in discrete ER-plasma membrane junctional regions where it interacts with and activates store-operated channels (SOCs). The factors involved in precise targeting of the channels and their retention at these specific microdomains are not yet defined. Here we report that(More)
Calcium is a ubiquitous signaling molecule, indispensable for cellular metabolism of organisms from unicellular life forms to higher eukaryotes. The biological function of most eukaryotic cells is uniquely regulated by changes in cytosolic calcium, which is largely achieved by the universal phenomenon of store-operated calcium entry (SOCE). The canonical(More)
Helminth parasites cause persistent infections in humans and yet many infected individuals are asymptomatic. Neurocysticercosis (NCC), a disease of the central nervous system (CNS) caused by the cestode Taenia solium, has a long asymptomatic phase correlated with an absence of brain inflammation. However, the mechanisms of immune suppression remain poorly(More)
