Patch-Clamping - Need help in basics

... a voltage ramp. How do I have to interpret the measurement? I have, as a result, a set of curves given in pA. Does a negative number indicate that cations flow into the cell or anions flow out of the cell, respectively, and vice versa? Or is this a too easy way of thinking about it? Phew, hope ...

Simulated intracellular fluid

... working on an experiment in which i need to create a solution that resembles the ion concentrations of intracellular fluid. However the anions and cations do not add up so I am kind of stuck. I was wondering if anyone else had experience with simulated intracellular fluid or if anyone had any ideas ...

Role of membranes in synthesis of ATP in cellular respiratio

... like: but uses (better avoid this verb) the energy released during redox reactions taking place iin mitochondria membranes to transport hydrogen cations through the membrane. And of course the hydrogen ions do not diffuse through membrane, but are transported (well, they do, but in such case ...

Re: TCA inhibitor

... area, not the reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucelotide side). Now I'm this far, you'd might as well hear it! So, Coenzyme Q will release hydrogen cations intot he inter membrane space.Now, the reason that it can only stop oxygen consumption here is because the structure of succinate is C4O4 with ...

Ionic bonds

... acids, such as sodium cyanide, NaCN. Many minerals are of this type. X-ray diffration shows that in NaCN, for example, the bonds between sodium cations (Na+) and the cyanide anions (CN-) are ionic, with no sodium ion associated with any particular cyanide. However, the bonds between C and N ...
