General description

The use of ion-pairing reagents as mobile phase additives allows the separation of ionic and highly polar substances on reversed phase HPLC columns. The purity of mobile phase additives is of utmost importance to their successful application. Sigma-Aldrich offers an outstanding range of tailor-made reagents for anionic (quaternary ammonium and phosphonium salts) and cationic (alkanesulfonates) determination. All mobile phase additives are subject to rigorous testing with special emphasis on the requirements of modern reversed phase HPLC:

Evidence has indicated that resveratrol (Res) produces vasorelaxation and may decrease the coronary heart disease mortality. However, several pathways involved in the mechanism of vasorelaxation are still unclear. This study was designed, therefore, to test the probable ion channels or...

Valine residues in the pore region of SK2 (V366) and SK3 (V520) were replaced by either an alanine or a phenylalanine to evaluate the impact on the interactions with the allosteric blocker apamin. Unlike TEA which showed high sensitivity to...

We studied principal neurons from canine intracardiac (IC) ganglia to determine whether large-conductance calcium-activated potassium (BK) channels play a role in their excitability. We performed whole cell recordings in voltage- and current-clamp modes to measure ion currents and changes in...

High-conductance Ca(2+)- and voltage-activated K(+) (Slo1 or BK) channels (KCNMA1) play key roles in many physiological processes. The structure of the Slo1 channel has two functional domains, a core consisting of four voltage sensors controlling an ion-conducting pore, and a...

Ether-à-go-go (EAG) and EAG-related gene (ERG) K(+) channels are close homologues but differ markedly in their gating properties. ERG1 channels are characterized by rapid and extensive C-type inactivation, whereas mammalian EAG1 channels were previously considered noninactivating. Here, we show that...
