• The estimation of not only concentrations of different intracellular ions (calcium in particular), but also of the dynamics of changes in these parameters, is one of the most important tasks in today cell biology. (springer.com)
  • The purpose of this review is, therefore, to present some of these studies and to discuss possible functions linked to PGs located in different intracellular compartments. (biochemj.org)
  • RNA intracellular transport includes the export of an RNA from its site of synthesis, the nucleus, to the cytoplasm and for some RNAs, the subsequent localization to specific cytoplasmic subdomains. (els.net)
  • During both these phases there is a substantial influx of Ca 2+ that accumulates in the cytoplasm and in intracellular Ca 2+ stores like endoplasmic reticulum (ER). (ki.se)
  • In its broadest sense, intracellular digestion is the breakdown of substances within the cytoplasm of a cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • I'm looking for methods/references regarding the techniques for measuring intracellular pH. (bio.net)
  • Project Professor Nobutaka Hirokawa of the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Medicine, who has long been investigating the mechanism of intracellular transport, describes the incredible power of its tiny workers. (u-tokyo.ac.jp)
  • Most organisms that use intracellular digestion belong to Kingdom Protista, such as amoeba and paramecium. (wikipedia.org)
  • Depending upon the intracellular steroid hormone that they bind, they are either located in the cytosol and move to the cell nucleus upon activation, or spend their life in the nucleus waiting for the steroid hormone to enter and activate them. (google.com)
  • It features intracellular trafficking pathways and characteristics of intracellular niches of individual microbes. (ovid.com)
  • Less attention has so far been given to PGs located in intracellular compartments, although several reports suggest that these have biological functions in storage granules, the nucleus and other intracellular organelles. (biochemj.org)
  • Recent advances have uncovered the general protein apparatus used by all eukaryotes for intracellular transport, including secretion and endocytosis, and for triggered exocytosis of hormones and neurotransmitters. (nih.gov)
  • As background for further extension of these methods this volume contains material on the history of the discovery of Procion dyes as intracellular stains, the chemistry of these dyes, and fundamentals of fluorescence microscopy. (springer.com)
  • But in reality microtubules are laid out regularly within each cell, and cargos such as mitochondria, membrane vesicles and the like are moved along these rails in a process called intracellular transport. (u-tokyo.ac.jp)
  • There are several variations of intracellular techniques, which can be grouped by the type of glass microelectrode used. (adinstruments.com)
  • The purpose of this book is to provide basic reference material to facilitate the further development and application of the intracellular staining techniques which originated with the introduction of Procion dye as a neurocellular stain. (springer.com)
  • First, we recognized that both the techniques and results of intracellular staining have been derived from a variety of preparations and published in diverse journals. (springer.com)
  • Intracellular electrodes are made of thin glass pipettes that are pulled to a very fine and sharp ending or tip. (scholarpedia.org)
