Calcein as a Fluorescent Probe for Ferric Iron
The recent use of calcein (CA) as a fluorescent probe for cellular iron has been shown to reflect the nutritional status of iron in mammalian cells (Breuer, W., Epsztejn, S., and Cabantchik, Z. I.Expand

New trends in the chemistry of iron(III) citrate complexes: correlations between X-ray structures and solution species probed by electrospray mass spectrometry and kinetics of iron uptake from
Despite the crucial role of "iron(III) citrate systems" in the iron metabolism of living organisms (bacteria as well as plants or mammals), the coordination chemistry of ferric citrate remains poorlyExpand

Metabolization of iron by plant cells using O-Trensox, a high-affinity abiotic iron-chelating agent.
A synthetic siderophore, O-Trensox (L), has been designed and synthesized to improve iron nutrition of plants. The affinity for iron of this ligand [pFe(III) = 29.5 and pFe(II) = 17.9] is very highExpand

Sodium channel and sodium pump in normal and pathological muscles from patients with myotonic muscular dystrophy and lower motor neuron impairment.
TWO SODIUM TRANSPORT SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN ANALYZED IN THIS WORK: the voltage-sensitive sodium channel and the (Na(+), K(+)) ATPase pump. The sodium channel has been studied using a tritiated derivativeExpand
