Li, Bo;
  • Subject: Q1

Both excitable and non-excitable cells possess plasma membrane ion channels and evidence has accumulated over the last 30 or so years that these channels perhaps play key roles in the cell life and death. This Thesis investigated the characteristics and putative functio... View more
