Yanga,** aDepartment of Chemistry, Georgia State University, 50 Decatur St., Atlanta, GA 30303 USA bDepartment of Biology, Georgia State University, 50 Decatur St., Atlanta, GA 30303 USA   Abstract Ca2+ is one of the most universal and versatile signalling molecules and is involved in almost every aspect […]

Low-pH-induced apoptosis: role of endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced calcium permeability and mitochondria-dependent signaling

Low-pH-induced apoptosis: role of endoplasmic reticulum stress-induced calcium permeability and mitochondria-dependent signaling

Vishal Sharma & Ramandeep Kaur & Archana Bhatnagar & Jagdeep Kaur Abstract The acidic microenvironment around tumor cells is a major determinant in cancer growth, metabolism, and metastasis. However, its role in cancer physiology is still not clearly understood. In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to explore the effect of an acidic […]

Calcium orchestrates apoptosis

Calcium orchestrates apoptosis

Mark P.Mattson and Sic L. Chan Apoptosis is a feature of many diseases and is critical for the sculpting and maintenance of tissues. New work demonstrates that calcium released from the endoplasmic reticulum synchronizes the mass exodus of cytochrome c from the mitochondria, a phenomenon that coordinates apoptosis. One unresolved problem in cell biology has […]
