  • The dynamic relationships between the three events that release individual Na+ ions from the Na+/K+-ATPase 

    Gadsby, David C.; Bezanilla, Francisco; Rakowski, Robert F.; De Weer, Paul; Holmgren, Miguel (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-02-14)
    Na+/K+ pumps move net charge through the cell membrane by mediating unequal exchange of intracellular Na+ and extracellular K+. Most charge moves during transitions that release Na+ to the cell exterior. When pumps are ...
  • Sodium flux ratio in Na/K pump-channels opened by palytoxin 

    Rakowski, Robert F.; Artigas, Pablo; Palma, Francisco; Holmgren, Miguel; De Weer, Paul; Gadsby, David C. (Rockefeller University Press, 2007-06-11)
    Palytoxin binds to Na+/K+ pumps in the plasma membrane of animal cells and opens an electrodiffusive cation pathway through the pumps. We investigated properties of the palytoxin-opened channels by recording macroscopic ...
