    • “cAMP Sponge”: A Buffer for Cyclic Adenosine 3′, 5′-Monophosphate 

      Lefkimmiatis, Konstantinos; Moyer, Mary Pat; Curci, Silvana Maria Immacolata; Hofer, Aldebaran (Public Library of Science, 2009)
      Background: While intracellular buffers are widely used to study calcium signaling, no such tool exists for the other major second messenger, cyclic AMP (cAMP). Methods/Principal Findings: Here we describe a genetically ...
    • Recent advances in understanding the extracellular calcium-sensing receptor 

      Colella, Matilde; Gerbino, Andrea; Hofer, Aldebaran M.; Curci, Silvana (F1000Research, 2016)
      The extracellular calcium-sensing receptor (CaR), a ubiquitous class C G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR), is responsible for the control of calcium homeostasis in body fluids. It integrates information about external Ca ...
