The proteins found in the mitochondria of apicomplexan parasites, including key proteins involved in energy generation, are very different from mitochondrial proteins of the animals these parasites infect.
Biochemical analyses show that mitochondrial COX16 assists in the process of copper insertion into COX2 and reveal a second COX16 function in linking assembly routes of the redox center-containing COX1 and COX2 subunits.
A novel region in the CaV2.1 α1 subunit regulates coupling of synaptic vesicles to CaV2.1 calcium channels, synaptic vesicle release and docking, and the size of the fast and total releasable pools of synaptic vesicles.
A novel opioid formulation producing analgesia similar to conventional opioids without permeation of blood-brain or intestinal barriers, thus precluding sedation, constipation and respiratory depression.
The somatosensory cortex doesn't integrate mixed bilateral inputs, as partially uncrossing projections from the whiskers duplicates their representation by segregating lateralized inputs from each side of the head.
