The Tight Junction Protein ZO-2 Localizes to the Nucleus and Interacts with the Heterogeneous Nuclear Ribonucleoprotein Scaffold Attachment Factor-B*
Zonula occludens proteins (ZOPs), currently comprising ZO-1, ZO-2, and ZO-3, belong to the family of membrane-associated guanylate kinase homologue (MAGUK) proteins that are involved in theExpand

A Novel Nervous System β Subunit that Downregulates Human Large Conductance Calcium-Dependent Potassium Channels
The pore-forming α subunits of many ion channels are associated with auxiliary subunits that influence channel expression, targeting, and function. Several different auxiliary (β) subunits for largeExpand

Modulation of calcium-activated potassium channels
Potassium currents play a critical role in action potential repolarization, setting of the resting membrane potential, control of neuronal firing rates, and regulation of neurotransmitter release.Expand

Scanning electron microscopy of vascular corrosion casts--technique and applications: updated review.
The present paper states very briefly the main steps leading to the technique of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of vascular corrosion casts. From the terms presently used (injection method,Expand

Hydrogen sulfide increases calcium-activated potassium (BK) channel activity of rat pituitary tumor cells
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is the third gasotransmitter found to be produced endogenously in living cells to exert physiological functions. Large conductance (maxi) calcium-activated potassium channelsExpand

A Drosophila KCNQ Channel Essential for Early Embryonic Development
The mammalian voltage-dependent KCNQ channels are responsible for distinct types of native potassium currents and are associated with several human diseases. We cloned a novel Drosophila KCNQ channelExpand

Ethanol interactions with calcium-dependent potassium channels.
In most neurons and other excitable cells, calcium-activated potassium channels of small (SK) and large conductance (BK; MaxiK) control excitability and neurotransmitter release. The spontaneousExpand

A large conductance ion channel in the nuclear envelope of a higher plant cell
To detect and characterize ion channel activity in the nuclear envelope of a higher plant cell, we performed patch clamp experiments on nuclei isolated from coconut endosperm cells and on giantExpand

Detection of a large cation‐selective channel in nuclear envelopes of avian erythrocytes
To determine whether the nuclear envelope of eukaryotic cells has the capability to regulate ion fluxes, we have used the patch‐clamp technique to detect ion channels in this membrane system. SinceExpand
