  • The high concentrations of total and free magnesium (Mg2+ f ) within eukaryotic cells and its role as an essential co-factor or regulator for numerous cellular enzymes and functions surprisingly contrasts with the minimal knowledge of the mechanisms, genes and proteins that regulate Mg2+ homeostasis at the cellular and organismal level. The reasons for this limited knowledge are both conceptual and methodological. Conceptually, the abundance of intracellular Mg2+ has led to the idea that no… CONTINUE READING
