ATP-sensitive potassium (K(ATP)) channels conduct potassium ions across cell membranes and thereby couple cellular energy metabolism to membrane electrical activity. Here, we report the heterologous expression and purification of a functionally active K(ATP) channel complex composed of pore-forming Kir6.2 and regulatory SUR1 subunits, and determination of… (More)
We propose a novel method for direct cloning of foreign genes into baculoviruses which avoids the use of bacterial transfer vectors. The foreign gene to be inserted is derived by PCR using appropriate primers each of which contains an additional 50 nt of baculovirus sequence for homologous recombination between the PCR-derived DNA and the baculovirus DNA,… (More)
In this work we present a fine-grained annotation schema to detect named entities in German clinical data of chronically ill patients with kidney diseases. The annotation schema is driven by the needs of our clinical partners and the linguistic aspects of German language. In order to generate annotations within a short period, the work also presents a… (More)
