3D Model of Cell Calcium Levels Solving the 3D puzzle in calcium-signaling research

Precise regulation of cell calcium levels is essential to health. The body tightly controls the calcium homeostasis that is maintained by specialized transport proteins known as ion channels and transporters. A new UTHealth study pinpoints one of these ion channels – inositol 1,4,5-trisphospghate receptor (IP3R) that is found in virtually all cell types. Through the […]
