The Stowe laboratory is currently active in several areas:
- Mechanism and timing of activation of cardiac mitochondrial small and large K+-sensitive Ca2+ (SKCa and BKCa) channels; their protective role against acute cardiac injury; identification of specific mitochondrial SKCa splice variants in several species, including human; and the molecular and biophysical mechanisms underlying protection by opening of these mitochondrial channels.
- Mitigation of Ca2+ dysregulation and excess reactive oxygen species emission in acute cardiac injury.
- Regulation of mitochondrial Ca2+ flux through Ca2+ channels and Ca2+ exchangers with H+, K+ and Na+; and exploration of dynamic mitochondrial Ca2+ buffering mechanisms.
- Ischemia-induced nitration of nucleotide transporters VDAC and ANT on promoting mitochondrial and cell damage with identification of specific residues that are causative in impeding nucleotide transport and mitochondrial dysfunction.
- Mitochondrial function in liver cells during the perioperative transplant period.
- Mitochondrial function in glial and neurons after subacute tramatic brain injury.
