Photoelectrochemical Imaging System for the Mapping of Cell Surface Charges.
It is reported that a photoelectrochemical imaging system (PEIS) based on label-free ac-photocurrent measurements at indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass substrates can be used to map the basal surface charge of single live cells under physiological conditions.
Electrostatic influence on IL-1 transport through the GSDMD pore
The investigation into the role of electrostatics in this preferential release of mature IL-1 revealed a charge-based gating mechanism for GSDMD pores and corroborate the electrostatic influence ofIL-1 transport exerted by the GSD MD pore and reveal extrinsic factors, including lipid and salt, that affect the electro static environment.
Effects of electrical stimulation on cell proliferation and apoptosis
The aim of this review was to comprehensively summarize current findings from in vitro and in vivo studies on the effects of different types of ES on cell apoptosis and proliferation, highlighting the possible mechanisms through which ES induced these effects and define the optimum parameters at which ES can be used.
The immunomodulatory effect of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) on the RAW264.7 cells by modification of the membrane structure and function.
It is suggested that DHA could alter the fluidity, the potential, the fatty acid, phospholipid and protein composition of the RAW264.7 cell membrane, eventually affecting the proteins of the cell membrane.
Interfaces Based on Laser-Structured Arrays of Carbon Nanotubes with Albumin for Electrical Stimulation of Heart Cell Growth
Successful formation of electronic interfaces between living cells and electronic components requires both good cell viability and performance level. This paper presents a technology for the


Electric fields at the plasma membrane level: a neglected element in the mechanisms of cell signalling.
A reappraisal of cell signalling, taking into account the protein interactions with the membrane electrostatic profile, suggests that an electrical dimension is deeply involved in this fundamental aspect of cell biology.

Electrophysiology of the sodium-potassium-ATPase in cardiac cells.
This review summarizes and discusses the results obtained from I(p) measurements in isolated cardiac cells, and offers new exciting insights into the voltage and ionic dependence of the Na(+)-K(+) pump activity, its effect on membrane potential, and its modulation by hormones, transmitters, and drugs.
Lack of voltage sensitive potassium channels and generation of membrane potential by sodium potassium ATPase in murine T lymphocytes.
Voltage sensitive K+ channels are functionally absent in about one-third of peripheral murine T cells and greatly reduced in the rest as shown by resistance of their membrane potential to changes in extracellular potassium concentration and failure of K+ channel dependent volume regulation.

Analytic Model for the Dipole Potential of a Lipid Layer.
An analytic expression for the dipole potential of a single lipid layer is derived using an electrostatic model that is based on an extended version of the linearized Poisson-Boltzmann theory, highlighting the ability of the lipid headgroups to render the dipoles potential positive by inducing an orientational ordering of the solvent molecules.
