Abstract

Mammalian cells tightly regulate cellular Mg(2+) content through a variety of transport and buffering mechanisms under the control of various hormones and cellular second messengers. The effect of these hormones and agents results in dynamic changes in the total content of Mg(2+) being transported across the cell membrane and redistributed within cellular compartments. The importance of maintaining proper cellular Mg(2+) content optimal for the activity of various cellular enzymes and metabolic cycles is underscored by the evidence that several diseases are characterized by a loss of Mg(2+) within specific tissues as a result of defective transport, hormonal stimulation, or metabolic impairment. This chapter will review the key mechanisms regulating cellular Mg(2+) homeostasis and their impairments under the most common diseases associated with Mg(2+) loss or deficiency.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 32. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 July 2022.
All research outputs
#1,003,208
of 22,205,727 outputs
Outputs from Metal ions in life sciences
#6
of 133 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#14,899
of 327,230 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Metal ions in life sciences
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,205,727 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 133 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 327,230 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
