The influence of static magnetic fields (SMFs) on the activity of recombinant mechanosensitive ion channels (the bacterial mechanosensitive ion channel of large conductance—MscL) following reconstitution into artificial liposomes has been investigated. Preliminary findings suggest that exposure to 80-mT SMFs does not induce spontaneous MscL activation in… CONTINUE READING
