7th World Congress of Oxidative Stress, Calcium Signaling, and TRC Channels
April 20, 2018 - April 23, 2018
Oxidative stress dependent calcium ion (Ca2+) entry is an important second messenger that has been shown to be responsible for a number of signal transduction pathways including neuronal excitability, metabolism, cell proliferation, and cell death. Different types of Ca2+ channels, such as voltage gated calcium channels (VGCC) and chemically gated calcium channels, likely play an important role in the diseases such as cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer and pain. Apart from the VGCC and chemically gated channels, one family of Ca2+ channels comprises transient receptor potential (TRP) cation channels and they were first described in photoreceptors of Drosophila flyers. As potential target on treatment of many diseases, activation and inhibition mechanisms of most TRP channels haven’t clarified yet.
One of the most important aims of this Congress is to bring scientist from all around the world to Turkey, a country which has long served a role as a bridge between two continents. With this purpose we have invited scientists from abroad who are specialists in the topics of the Congress.
