Functional coupling of beta(3)-adrenoceptors and large conductance calcium-activated potassium channels in human uterine myocytes
(Endocrine Society, 2005-07-02)
Context: beta(3)-Adrenoreceptor modulation in human myometrium during pregnancy is linked functionally to myometrial inhibition. Maxi-K+ channels (BKCa) play a significant role in modulating cell membrane potential and ...
Periodic acid-Schiff's reagent assay for carbohydrates in a microtiter plate format
Microtiter plate colorimetric assays are widely used for analysis of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates. However, mucins are often not easily detected, as they have low neutral sugar content. We have adapted and optimised ...
