Electrophysiological characterization of potassium conductive pathways in Trypanosoma cruzi
Potassium channels (K+ channels) are members of one of the largest and most diverse families of membrane proteins, widely described from bacteria to humans. Their functions include voltage-membrane potential maintenance, ...
Cuticular Hydrocarbons of Heterotermes tenuis (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae): Analyses and Electrophysiological Studies
Termites have become an important pest of Eucalyptus and Pinus reforestations, sugarcane and other cultures. An alternative for the control of this pest would be the use of attractive traps that take in account the social ...
Electrophysiological responses of Atta sexdens rubropilosa workers to essential oils of Eucalyptus and its chemical composition
The leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens rubropilosa Forel, 1908 is the most harmful of the Eucalyptus pests, causing severe losses in wood production through defoliation. Various strategies have been tried and effort spent on ...
Role of Ulnar Nerve Sonography in Leprosy Neuropathy With Electrophysiologic Correlation
(AMER INST ULTRASOUND MEDICINE, 2009)
Objective. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of ulnar nerve sonography in leprosy neuropathy with electrophysiologic correlation. Methods. Twenty-one consecutive patients with leprosy (12 ...
An adaptive hybridizable discontinuous galerkin approach for cardiac electrophysiology
Cardiac electrophysiology simulations are numerically challenging because of the propagation of a steep electrochemical wave front and thus require discretizations with small mesh sizes to obtain accurate results. In this ...
