ASA Presenter Information Request Cathleen Peterson-Layne, MD

Was your abstract or PBLD accepted for the ASA? Are you presenting or moderating a Refresher Course, Workshop, or other ASA lecture? Please send a copy of your ASA acceptance letter with the details for presentation date and time to Cheryl Stetson by June 30th so we can spread the word.

ASA Hotel Room Block Information Mark F. Newman, MD

In order to maximize our impact while minimizing the overall departmental cost, we will again have a hotel arrangement this year that will allow us to consolidate and take advantage of group purchase to reduce our food and room rental expenses. In order to accomplish this we have a room block at the Renaissance Hotel in New Orleans. You will need to book your room by visiting the site listed below. The link includes our reservation code for our room rate. I expect that we will fully reserve in our block first before using any outside hotels. If you have any questions or concerns please see me. The Marriott Renaissance in New Orleans has reduced the Duke Anesthesiology room block rate from $259/night to $215/night which is the ASA room rate. If you have already made your reservation it will be changed to reflect the new $215 rate. If you have any questions or problems contact Gloria Howard at gloria.howard@duke.edu or 6816493. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/msydt?groupCode=dukduk a&app=resvlink&fromDate=10/15/09&toDate=10/22/09

News New Departmental Research Award W. Dan Tracey, PhD, Assistant Professor, Division of Basic Sciences and Director of the Molecular Genetics of Pain Signaling Laboratory received a 2-year $429,000 NIH Exploratory/Development Research Grant (R21) from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders entitled “Genome-Wide Analysis of Ion Channels Required for Mechanosensation”. A large body of evidence suggests that ion channels act as force sensors in mechanotransduction systems. In flies, the No mechanoreceptor potential-C (Nomp-C) channel has been suggested to be a force transduction channel in neurons that detect bristle deflection. In C. elegans, mechanotransduction channels of the Deg/ENaC family have been unambiguously identified as force sensors in touch neurons. The Mec10/Mec4 channel is the central component of a transduction complex that also involves extracellular matrix proteins. In bacteria, a simpler form of mechanotransduction involves a mechanosensitive channel of large conductance (MscL) and another of smaller conductance (MscS). These bacterial force-sensing channels detect membrane stretch triggered by osmotic pressure and protect the cell from rupture by allowing emergency ejection of osmolytes. Despite progress in identifying these important channels, the identities of mechanotransduction channels in vertebrate neurons remain elusive. For example, orthologs of Nomp-C and Msc channels have not been found in mammals and there is limited evidence supporting a role for Deg/ENaC’s in mammalian mechanotransduction. Since it is likely that molecular mechanisms of mechanotransduction are ancient, and evolutionarily conserved, we hypothesize that additional mechanotransduction channels have yet to be identified. The goal of this proposal is to identify candidates for these evolutionarily conserved mechanotransduction channels. Identifying the novel mechanotransduction channels and their vertebrate homologues may lead to an increased understanding of human diseases ranging from deafness to pain.
