How the cells remove copper

New research from Aarhus University provides deeper insight into causes of serious diseases involving copper metabolism. Mapping the mechanism that regulates the transport of copper across the cell membrane and out of the body’s cells actually provides a new understanding of conditions related to chronic imbalance in the body’s level of copper.

When human cells are unable to protect themselves

Pontus Gourdon, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, has just been awarded a Lundbeck Foundation Fellowship, and he will study what happens when the transport of substances in and out of the cells does not work. Dreaded dementia diseases can occur if there is an imbalance in a number of substances in human cells.

Small adrenal tumours cause high blood pressure

In collaboration with a Cambridge research group, Danish researchers from the research centre PUMPkin at Aarhus University have revealed why up to 10 percent of the population have high blood pressure.

New publication: Somatic mutations in ATP1A1 and CACNA1D underlie a common subtype of adrenal hypertension

Focus on our new research results by BBC! The new results have revealed the cause of elevated blood pressure in a large group of patients. It turns out to be linked to mutations in ion pumps in the cell membrane (the Na+,K+-ATPase) and in two different ion channels in the small adenomes of the adrenal glands, which causes an increased secretion of…

A turbo switch speeds up a crucial calcium pump

PUMPkin research featured in the iNANO report 2012! In plant and animal cells calmodulin-stimulated calcium pumps are key regulators of the calcium concentration inside the cells and therefore essential to life. If they fail, the intracellular calcium concentration rises pushing the cell to commit suicide. The pump contains a previously unknown…
