Module 6: Figure NFAT nuclear translocation



The effect of Ca2+ oscillation frequency on the nuclear translocation of nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT).

(A) Recordings of the Ca2+ oscillations that were used to study the nuclear translocation of nuclear factor of activated T cells (NFAT). (B) When these oscillations were applied to cells, the low-frequency oscillations had little effect, but translocation increased progressively as oscillation frequency was increased. The way in which NFAT translocation was measured is described in Module 4: Figure NFAT translocation.
