The influence of static magnetic fields on mechanosensitive ion channel activity in artificial liposomes.

Abstract:

The influence of static magnetic fields (SMFs) on the activity of recombinant mechanosensitive ion channels (the bacterial mechanosensitive ion channel of large conductance-MscL) following reconstitution into artificial liposomes has been investigated. Preliminary findings suggest that exposure to 80-mT SMFs does not induce spontaneous MscL activation in the absence of mechanical stimulation. However, SMFs do appear to influence the open probability and single channel kinetics of MscL exposed...
