Electrophysiological studies of salty taste modification by organic acids in the labellar taste cell of the blowfly

, : Electrophysiological studies of salty taste modification by organic acids in the labellar taste cell of the blowfly. Chemical Senses 27(1): 57-65

Using the labellar salt receptor cells of the blowfly, Phormia regina, we electrophysiologically showed that the response to NaCl and KCl aqueous solutions was enhanced and depressed by acetic, succinic and citric acids. The organic acid concentrations at which the most enhanced salt response (MESR) was obtained were found to be different: 0.05-1 mM citric acid, 0.5-2 mM succinic acid and 5-50 mM acetic acid.

Mutation does not alter oligomerization but impacts the heme iron spin state and nitric oxide binding properties. Rhodobacter capsulatus cytochrome c' (RCCP) has been overexpressed in Escherichia coli, and its spectroscopic and ligand-binding properties have been investigated. It is concluded that the heterologously expressed protein is assembled correct...

Mechanisms for the improvement of chromatographic performance. Very large volumes of serum/plasma can be directly injected to a new extraction column based on particles with a biocompatible outer surface and C18 groups within the pores. The biocompatibility has been obtained by attaching the human plasma prot...
