Bayer   The language of the cells

The human body comprises some 75 trillion cells, all of which have to cooperate so that life can function. The cells therefore communicate with each other. The basic principle involves excitation. Ion channels often play an important role in this process. They open and close as the result of chemical and electrical signals. When open, they form a gate through which electrically charged particles (ions) can pass into or out of the cell, thus regulating the electrical charge distribution in the membrane and conducting the originally received signal to other cells. This fundamental function makes ion channels an important target for many drug products, for example medicines to treat cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension and diabetes.

Bayer   Bayer Infographic – The functionality of ion channels

Biological cells are very orderly systems. Ion channels ensure that only selected substances can get into the cells of humans and animals. These molecular gatekeepers are the most important modules in cell communication. Ion channels are therefore extremely interesting targets for medical and plant researchers. Bayer experts are working together in interdisciplinary teams to find new active ingredients.

Bayer   Bayer Infographic: Improving shattering resistance of canola pods to protect yields

The stability of Canola pods can be adjusted using reverse genetics. The Canola plants that result from this have stronger seed pods. The seeds stay in the pod and do not fall out when buffeted by the wind. This is how our scientists make sure that as many of the black, oily canola seeds as possible can be harvested. Learn more:
