Dynamic memory of a single voltage-gated potassium ion channel: A stochastic nonequilibrium thermodynamic analysis.

In this work, we have studied the stochastic response of a single voltage-gated potassium ion channel to a periodic external voltage that keeps the sy...

Dynamic metabolic control of an ion channel.
G-protein-coupled receptors mediate responses to external stimuli in various cell types. We are interested in the modulation of KCNQ2/3 potassium channels by the Gq-coupled M1 muscarinic (acetylcholine) receptor (M1R). Here, we describe development o

Time to blip--stochastic simulation of single channel opening.
The stochastic dynamics of the inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) receptor (IP3R) is key to understanding a wide range of observed calcium (Ca²⁺) signals. The stochastic nature results from the constant binding and unbinding of Ca²⁺ and IP3 to and fr

Realization of nonequilibrium thermodynamic processes using external colored noise.
We investigate the dynamics of single microparticles immersed in water that are driven out of equilibrium in the presence of an additional external colored noise. As a case study, we trap a single polystyrene particle in water with optical tweezers a

Nonequilibrium Enhances Adaptation Efficiency of Stochastic Biochemical Systems.
Adaptation is a crucial biological function possessed by many sensory systems. Early work has shown that some influential equilibrium models can achieve accurate adaptation. However, recent studies indicate that there are close relationships between

Nonequilibrium stochastic model for tRNA binding time statistics.
Protein translation is one of the most important processes in cell life, but despite being well-understood biochemically, the implications of its intrinsic stochastic nature have not been fully elucidated. In this paper we develop a microscopic and s

Ion channel profile of TRPM8 cold receptors reveals a role of TASK-3 potassium channels in thermosensation.
Animals sense cold ambient temperatures through the activation of peripheral thermoreceptors that express TRPM8, a cold- and menthol-activated ion channel. These receptors can discriminate a very wide range of temperatures from innocuous to noxious.

A quantitative analysis of cytokinin using single-ion-current-monitoring.
The levels of the cytokinin 6-(o-hydroxybenzylamino)-9-β-D-ribofuranosylpurine (o-OH BAP riboside) have been measured in attached leaves of poplar (Populus x robusta Schneid) using the technique of single-ion current monitoring (SICM). The use of 6-(

Purification and structural study of the voltage-sensor domain of the human KCNQ1 potassium ion channel.
KCNQ1 (also known as KV7.1 or KVLQT1) is a voltage-gated potassium channel modulated by members of the KCNE protein family. Among multiple functions, KCNQ1 plays a critical role in the cardiac action potential. This channel is also subject to inherit

Dynamic role of the tether helix in PIP2-dependent gating of a G protein-gated potassium channel.
G protein-gated inwardly rectifying potassium (GIRK) channels control neuronal excitability in the brain and are implicated in several different neurological diseases. The anionic phospholipid phosphatidylinositol 4,5 bisphosphate (PIP2) is an essent

Lactam sulfonamides as potent inhibitors of the Kv1.5 potassium ion channel.
A series of lactam sulfonamides has been discovered and optimized as inhibitors of the Kv1.5 potassium ion channel for treatment of atrial fibrillation. In vitro structure-activity relationships from lead structure C to optimized structure 3y are des
