In the last two decades the study of Ca(2+) homeostasis in living cells has been enhanced by the explosive development of genetically encoded Ca(2+)-indicators. The cloning of the Ca(2+)-sensitive photoprotein aequorin and of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the...

Calcium entry into T cells following antigen stimulation is crucial for nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT)-mediated T cell activation. The movement of calcium is mediated by calcium release-activated calcium (CRAC) channels. There are two key components of this...

Gap junctions (GJs) are intercellular channels which are composed of the connexin family of proteins that allow electrical and chemical communications and synchronization in tissue ensembles. Evidence suggests that pharmaceutical modulators of these channels may have therapeutic potential or carry...

Highly purified histidine-tagged aequorin with a reactive cysteine residue (His-Cys4-aequorin) was obtained from the periplasmic space of Escherichia coli cells by nickel-chelate affinity chromatography and hydrophobic chromatography. The procedure yielded 40.3mg of His-Cys4-aequorin from 2L of cultured cells with over...
