TRAAK channels, members of the two-pore domain K(+) (potassium ion) channel family K2P, are expressed almost exclusively in the nervous system and control the resting membrane potential. Their gating… (More)
The olfactory system must recognize and discriminate amongst an enormous variety of chemicals in the environment. To contend with such diversity, insects have evolved a family of odorant-gated ion… (More)
Living cells respond to mechanical forces applied to their outer membrane through processes referred to as "mechanosensation". Faced with hypotonic shock, to circumvent cell lysis, bacteria open… (More)
We describe the synthesis and characterization of a ruthenium-bipyridyl complex bearing a rhodamine-based fluorescent ligand. The complex is weakly fluorescent due to the quenching of rhodamine. Upon… (More)
Mechanical force sensation is fundamental to a wide breadth of biology from the classic senses of touch, pain, hearing, and balance to less conspicuous sensations of proprioception, blood pressure,… (More)
