APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

Function Symposium: Regulation of Physiological Function

Symposium — Tuesday, April 27, 2021 — 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM — Virtual Session, Room APS-1
President's Symposium Series — Chair: Ole H. Petersen — Co-Chair: Dennis Brown

This symposium will deal with cellular regulation by Ca2+ and ATP. There will be focus on voltage-gated Ca2+ regulation of mitochondrial function and the action of ATP on ion channels and mitochondrial function.
