Control of membrane function: Short-term and long-term by J. Murdoch Ritchie, Pierre J. Magistretti and Liana Bolis

By J. Murdoch Ritchie, Pierre J. Magistretti and Liana Bolis (Eds.)

A severe consider cell-to-cell interactions is the presence within the mobilephone membrane of hugely particular ion channels managed via particular receptors which are absolute to, and activated through, a gamut of exterior hormones and neurotransmitters. via either this motion on ion channels, and motion on different membrane parts (such as G-proteins), extracellular signs adjust intracellular occasions, frequently during the mediation of moment messengers, and so give you the foundation for the transduction mechanism connecting extracellular signs with intracellular effectors. This quantity bargains with some of the ways in which such membrane functionality is managed

Over the past twenty years it has become clear that the major mechanisms for the regulation of synaptic transmission is protein phosphorylation. , 1989). However, the molecular details of the functional effects of protein phosphorylation on synaptic function have been difficult to study. , 1984) and has therefore been an excellent model system to study the molecular details of the regulation of synaptic function by protein phosphorylation (Miles and Huganir, 1988). , 1984). , 1978). , 1984). Each subunit spans the membrane and the five subunits are arranged in a pentameric rosette surrounding a central ion channel region (see Figure 1).
