Efficient Transporters Belong To The Voltage Dependent Transporter

Efficient Transporters Belong To The Voltage Dependent Transporter In Cell

The scientists discovered that these efficient transporters belong to the voltage-dependent slow-anion channel transporter (SLAC1) clade; which also encompasses plant transporters involved in stomata closure. In contrast to other sodium or proton-dependent dicarboxylic acid transporters; SLAC1 anion channels can transport anions with virtually no expense of energy. Currently, one of the problems in industrial biotechnology…

Bone Loss During Space Flight Can Be Prevented By Melatonin

Melatonin could be a novel drug for preventing bone loss to astronauts during space flight. Here we used goldfish scales as a bone model of coexisting osteoclasts and osteoblasts and demonstrated that melatonin synthesis decreased under microgravity. Melatonin treatment of scales stimulated expression of Calcitonin, an osteoclast-inhibiting hormone, and decreased expression of an osteoclastogenesis promotor.…
