Danish researchers hit the front page of Nature

Abstract:
As the first researchers in the world they have succeeded in disclosing how the cells' so-called ion pumps look and function. Ion pumps preserve essential differences in the cells' internal and external environment and ensure energy to all signal and transport processes in the body - e.g. nerve impuls and the kidneys' salt secrete. In plants and mushrooms they are moreover the basis for absorption of nutrients. The results may among other things be used for the development of new types of drugs and technology.

Already today a number of drugs have an effect on the pumps as for example heart medicine and ulcer medicine. However, the new results may be used for the development of new types of medicine for the treatment of cardiovascular disease, cancer and infectious diseases. Moreover, they can be the basis for development of new nanotechnology and of culture plants with large salt tolerance.
