Broken pump abets calcium overload after a stroke

Abstract: Without a good bilge pump, ships can flood and sink--and so can cells. After a stroke, a cellular pump protein breaks down, allowing a deadly accumulation of calcium, new results reveal. The study uncovers a protein-eating molecule that dismantles the channel and suggests that preventing the razing might stave off stroke damage.
