The lysosomal degradation of ganglioside GM2 by hexosaminidase A depends on the presence of the specific activator protein which mediates the interaction between micellar or membrane-bound ganglioside and water-soluble hydrolase. The mechanism and the glycolipid specificity of this activator were studied in more detail. 1. It could be shown with three(More)
The aim of the present work was to clarify whether heterotrimeric P2X2/3 receptors have a fixed subunit stoichiometry consisting of one P2X2 and two P2X3 subunits as previously suggested, or a flexible stoichiometry containing also the inverse subunit composition. For this purpose we transfected HEK293 cells with P2X2 and P2X3 encoding cDNA at the ratios of(More)
P2X3 receptors (P2X3R) are trimeric ATP-gated cation channels involved in sensory neurotransmission and inflammatory pain. We used homology modeling and molecular dynamic simulations of the hP2X3R to identify inter-subunit interactions of residues that are instrumental to elucidate conformational changes associated with gating of the hPX3R. We identified an(More)

In the estimation of radiation genetic risks, the results must be derived from animal experiments. According to recently performed investigations, humans have almost the same mutation sensibility like mice. In risk estimations, it is necessary to take into account the factors which influence the mutation rate induced per unit dose. Risk estimations are(More)
