Annually, more than 1.2 million persons in the United States require medical care for burns. Healing of deep burn wounds requires restored perfusion and neoangiogenesis to reestablish blood flow and limit ischemic damage.\r\nWe ...
Molecular characterization of cation-coupled transporters: the H+-coupled Mg2+-citrate transporter, CitM, and the Na+/sulfate cotransporter, hNaSi-1
In this dissertation, two cation-coupled transporters were characterized at the molecular level. The CitM transporter from Bacillus subtilis was functionally expressed and characterized in E.coli cells. The human NaSi-1 ...
