Single-channel models of intracellular Ca(2+) channels such as the inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor and ryanodine receptor often assume that Ca(2+)-dependent transitions are mediated by a constant background [Ca(2+)] as opposed to a dynamic [Ca(2+)] representing the formation and collapse of a localized Ca(2+) domain. This assumption neglects the fact(More)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are cells shed from solid tumors into circulation and have been shown to be prognostic in the setting of metastatic disease. These cells are obtained through a routine blood draw and may serve as an easily accessible marker for monitoring treatment effectiveness. Because of the rapid progression of pancreatic ductal(More)
