It was observed that the ionic conductivity of the solid-state electrolyte LiI/3-hydroxypropionitrile (HPN) = 1:4 (molar ratio) decreased dramatically with increasing iodine (I(2)) concentration, which differs from the conduction behavior of the Grotthuss transport mechanism observed in liquid or gel...

Phospholipids are a main component of cell membranes. Therefore, the experimental investigation of the self-organization of phospholipids is of great interest. Here we present results concerning the orientation of the phospholipid 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC) at the surface of the polar solvents...

Sphingolipid derivatives cause diverse effects towards the regulation of intracellular free Ca(2+) concentrations ([Ca(2+)](i)) in a multitude of nonexcitable cells. In the present investigation, the effect of C-8 ceramide-1-(2-cyanoethyl) phosphate (C1CP) on store-operated Ca(2+) (SOC) entry was investigated. C1CP evoked...
