Marcelo Carattino, Ph.D.
Research Interest:

Dr. Marcelo Carattino is a member of the Renal-Electrolyte Division, Department of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh. His main research interests are epithelial ion transport, and regulation of ion channels by mechanical forces. He is also studying how proteolytic processing of the epithelial sodium channel regulates its activity. His main tools involved electrophysiological techniques, as single channel recording, two-electrode voltage clamp, short-circuit currents of epithelial cells monolayers, and molecular biology techniques.
