UNC-31 or its mammalian homologue, Ca(2+)-dependent activator protein for secretion (CAPS), is indispensable for exocytosis of dense core vesicle (DCV) and synaptic vesicle (SV). From N- to the C-terminus, UNC-31 contains putative functional domains, including dynactin 1 binding domain (DBD), C2, PH, (M)UNC-13 homology domain (MHD) and DCV binding domain(More)
Animals integrate various environmental stimuli within the nervous system to generate proper behavioral responses. However, the underlying neural circuits and molecular mechanisms are largely unknown. The insulinlike signaling pathway is known to regulate dauer formation, fat metabolism, and longevity in Caenorhabditis elegans (C. Elegans). Here, we show(More)
AIM Ca(2+)-release-activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channel, a subfamily of store-operated channels, is formed by calcium release-activated calcium modulator 1 (ORAI1), and gated by stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1). CRAC channel may be a novel target for the treatment of immune disorders and allergy. The aim of this study was to identify novel small molecule(More)
