Human gene SLC41A1 encodes for the Na+/Mg²+ exchanger.
Magnesium (Mg(2+)), the second most abundant divalent intracellular cation, is involved in the vast majority of intracellular processes, including the synthesis of nucleic acids, proteins, and energyExpand

Mg2+ Deprivation Elicits Rapid Ca2+ Uptake and Activates Ca2+/Calcineurin Signaling in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
ABSTRACT To learn about the cellular processes involved in Mg2+ homeostasis and the mechanisms allowing cells to cope with low Mg2+ availability, we performed RNA expression-profiling experiments andExpand

Coenzyme Q10 affects expression of genes involved in cell signalling, metabolism and transport in human CaCo-2 cells.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential cofactor in the electron transport chain and serves as an important antioxidant in both mitochondria and lipid membranes. CoQ10 is also an obligatory cofactor for theExpand

Acid-base status affects renal magnesium losses in healthy, elderly persons.
Magnesium and calcium deficiency in humans is related to a number of pathological phenomena such as arrhythmia, osteoporosis, migraine, and fatal myocardial infarction. Clinically establishedExpand

PARK7/DJ-1 dysregulation by oxidative stress leads to magnesium deficiency: implications in degenerative and chronic diseases.
Disturbed magnesium (Mg(2+)) homoeostasis and increased levels of OS (oxidative stress) are associated with poor clinical outcomes in patients suffering from neurodegenerative, cardiovascular andExpand

Mineral Metabolism in Erythrocytes from Patients with Cystic Fibrosis
In patients with cystic fibrosis plasma concentrations of Zn and Mg were unchanged, plasma Ca concentrations were somewhat decreased, but plasma Fe concentrations were drastically reduced; the ratioExpand

Pathobiochemical effects of graded magnesium deficiency in rats.
Severe Mg deficiency changed mineral homeostasis, induced membrane damage, increased lipid peroxidation and cytokine concentrations, and reduced immunocompetence. In order to investigate whether theExpand
