Q & amp;A: How to Control Development Costs for Implantables
When it comes to implantable devices, the material makeup of the technology is not only critical to the success of the device, but it also has a significant impact on the cost. Often times implantables need to be able to survive some of the harshest conditions in the body, where any kind of unexpected breakdown in materials can have critical adverse effects if they aren’t safely designed. This, of course, leaves many device makers with a very short list of potential materials.

TALK-1 channels control {beta} cell endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ homeostasis
Ca2+ handling by the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) serves critical roles in controlling pancreatic β cell function and becomes perturbed during the pathogenesis of diabetes. ER Ca2+ homeostasis is determined by ion movements across the ER membrane, including K+ flux through K+ channels. We demonstrated that K+ flux through ER-localized TALK-1 channels facilitated Ca2+ release from the ER in mouse and human β cells. We found that β cells from mice lacking TALK-1 exhibited reduced basal cytosolic Ca2+ and increased ER Ca2+ concentrations, suggesting reduced ER Ca2+ leak. These changes in Ca2+ homeostasis were pre...
