A method for quantitative evaluation of transmembrane electrical potential and pH gradients across a subcellular compartment in an intact cell is presented. This approach has been applied in studies of mouse neuroblastoma C-1300 clone NB41A3, in which the transmembrane electrical potential and pH gradients and the mitochondrial volume percent have been determined. Membrane potentials and pH gradients were measured by two different methods. Equilibrium distributions of [(3)H]triphenylmethyl phosphonium and [(14)C]-thiocyanate ions gave calculated apparent membrane potentials of -77.0 and -29.6 mV, respectively, at 20-25 degrees C; a value of -60.8 mV was obtained from microelectrode measurements. Equilibrium distributions of weak acids ([(14)C]trimethylacetic acid and 5,5-di[(14)C]methyl-2,4-oxazolidine-dione) and of weak bases ([(14)C]dimethylamine and [(14)C]trimethylamine) gave calculated upper and lower limits of the pH gradient (Delta pH = pH(e) - pH(i)) of -0.14 and -0.21 pH unit, respectively. The microelectrode measurements showed that the intracellular pH is within 0.1 of a pH unit or less of the extracellular pH over the extracellular pH range of 7.35-6.85. The mitochondrial volume percent calculated on the basis of th...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
