The calcium-dependent modulation of the affinity of the cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels for adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) was studied in enzymatically dissociated rat olfactory receptor neurons, by recording macroscopic cAMP-activated currents from inside-out patches excised from their dendritic knobs. Upon intracellular addition of 0.2(More)
The permeation of monovalent organic cations through adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate-(cAMP) activated channels was studied by recording macroscopic currents in excised inside-out membrane patches from the dendritic knobs of isolated mammalian olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs). Current-voltage relations were measured when bathing solution Na+ was(More)
A novel kind of iterative map, the frequency dependent map, offering the crucial advantages of easy tunability and signal dependent control is formulated from the standard circle map, and is studied using the bifurcation and cobweb plots. Following this, the nonlinearity of a MOSFET is explored and a novel modification to a conventional ring oscillator is(More)
i ABSTRACT The high penetration of photovoltaic (PV) both at the utility and at the distribution levels, has raised concerns about the reliability of grid-tied inverters of PV power systems. Inverters are generally considered as the weak link in PV power systems. The lack of a dedicated qualification/reliability standard for PV inverters is a main barrier(More)
Of all the four N-glycosyl chains present in hCG, only one of them at alpha52Asn is located at the alpha/beta subunit interface and is crucial for the biological function of the hormone. The other three are exposed on the surface of the molecule and play only a minor role in the function of the hormone. The alpha52Asn oligosaccharide interacts with five(More)
Human choriogonadotropin is a heterodimeric glycoprotein hormone comprised of noncovalently associated alpha- and beta-subunits. Each of the subunits has two N-glycosyl chains. In our previous communication, we investigated the role of individual carbohydrate chains in the alpha-subunit on the signal transduction function and conformation of the hormone.(More)
The dependence of currents through the cyclic nucleotide-gated (CNG) channels of mammalian olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) on the concentration of NaCl was studied in excised inside-out patches from their dendritic knobs using the patch-clamp technique. With a saturating concentration (100 microM) of adenosine 3',5'-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP), the(More)
