Aralar is a mitochondrial calcium-regulated aspartate-glutamate carrier mainly distributed in brain and skeletal muscle, involved in the transport of aspartate from mitochondria to cytosol, and in the transfer of cytosolic reducing equivalents into mitochondria as a member of the malate-aspartate NADH shuttle. In the present study, we describe the(More)
The simple photoreceptors Ip-1 and Ip-2 are intrinsically light-sensitive neurons that exist in the abdominal ganglion of the sea slug Onchidium verruculatum. Using isolated ganglia and semi-intact or intact animal preparations, the present studies examined the light-sensing and physiological roles of Ip-1 and Ip-2 cells, which respond jointly to light by(More)
