Coivd-19 patients have difficulty breathing.  Is this due to lost of lung capacity, the cytokine storm, or a combination of the two?  The neurons of the locus ceruleus are themselves very sensitive to CO2/pH. [1]  The A6 norepinepthrine releasing neurons of the LC play a role in translating changes in CO2/pH  to changes in respiration.Continue reading “locus ceruleus ventilation”

Reducing Fevers

Fever curves are an interesting source of amusement for those that have the ability to collect the data.  This is especially true for those experiencing periodic fever or chills. Reducing Fevers:  propacetamol (Tylenol) versus  dexibuprofen Paracetamol, acetominophen, propacetamol are inhibitors of cyclooxygenase  (Cox).  Some references suggest it might interact with the endocannabinoid system.    Continue reading “Reducing Fevers”

Ctr1

Ctr1 We are excited to share with the structure of the Cu+ transporter Ctr1 (Ren 2019).   Feifei Ren and coworkers genetically engineered the Ctr1 transporter from the Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar.  This salmon sCtr1 transporter has 78% sequence identity to our human hCtr1.  TM 1-3 are transmembrane domains.   We have been interested in this Cu+Continue reading “Ctr1”

Ceruloplasmin

Ceruloplasmin, the immune system Most of this document was written for an M.D. interested in giving the Mitosynergy product to his patients. This post is a compilation of our discussions.  Ceruloplasmin keeps copper and oxygen deep within its surface. Here we have an image of ceruloplasm crystallized with just Cu, oxygen, glycerol and N-acetylglucosamine. NoContinue reading “Ceruloplasmin”
