Calcium homeostasis modulator (CALHM) ion channels.
Philadelphia, United States. In Pflugers Arch, Dec 2015
UNASSIGNED: Calcium homeostasis modulator 1 (CALHM1), formerly known as FAM26C, was recently identified as a physiologically important plasma membrane ion channel.
Hunting for connexin hemichannels.
Valparaíso, Chile. In Febs Lett, 2014
Defining functions of hemichannels and their involvement in any biological event requires ruling out possible participation of other channels that share biophysical and regulatory properties, for example pannexins, CALHM1 and P2X receptors.
Linking calcium to Abeta and Alzheimer's disease.
Irvine, United States. In Neuron, 2008
[Review] Expression of CALHM1 is found in all brain regions and cells of neuronal lineage; it localizes predominantly to the endoplasmic reticulum but also exists at the plasma membrane, where it forms a novel calcium influx route to the cytosol.
