Ca(2+) entry through L-type calcium channels (Ca(V)1.2) is critical in shaping the cardiac action potential and initiating cardiac contraction. Modulation of Ca(V)1.2 channel gating directly affects myocyte excitability and cardiac function. We have found that phospholemman (PLM), a member of the FXYD family and regulator of cardiac ion transport,(More)
We have found that phospholemman (PLM) associates with and modulates the gating of cardiac L-type calcium channels (Wang et al., Biophys J 98: 1149-1159, 2010). The short 17 amino acid extracellular NH(2)-terminal domain of PLM contains a highly conserved PFTYD sequence that defines it as a member of the FXYD family of ion transport regulators. Although we(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of superselective intra-arterial targeted neo-adjuvant chemotherapy in the treatment of estrogen receptor (ER)-negative, progesterone receptor (PR)-negative, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative (triple-negative) breast cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS.: A total of 47(More)
How dihydropyridines modulate L-type voltage-gated Ca2+ channels is not known. Dihydropyridines bind cooperatively with Ca2+ binding to the selectivity filter, suggesting that they alter channel activity by promoting structural rearrangements in the pore. We used radioligand binding and patch-clamp electrophysiology to demonstrate that calcicludine, a toxin(More)
In this study, we examine the potential of heart rate variability (HRV) as an efficient tool for predicting the onset of epilepsy in children. We totally collected 53 seizures EEG and ECG data using Video - EEG - ECG monitoring system. We then separated the ECG data into three segments: ten-minute before onset of each seizure, five-minute before onset of(More)
The expression and functions of microRNA (miR)-411 have been investigated in several types of cancer. However, until now, miR-411 in human breast cancer has not been examined. The present study investigated the expression, biological functions and molecular mechanisms of miR‑411 in human breast cancer, discussing whether it offers potential as a therapeutic(More)
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) sensor, STIM1, becomes activated when ER-stored Ca(2+) is depleted and translocates into ER-plasma membrane junctions where it tethers and activates Orai1 Ca(2+) entry channels. The dimeric STIM1 protein contains a small STIM-Orai-activating region (SOAR)--the minimal sequence sufficient to activate Orai1 channels.(More)
The implications and features of network public opinion are introduced, and the feasibility of using linkage analysis technology to analyze the evolution trends of network public opinion is discussed. The evolution process of network public opinion with time and information source quality evaluation are studied with the use of BUT Web crawler as a tool and(More)
