comment How does extracellular potassium ion concentration and calcium ion concentration affect the excitability of a cell?
Rory M - that's not always true about decreasing excitability. Case and point: > 25 mM K+ is a standard depolarizing agent in cell culture that triggers action potential firing. Also, a high K+ gradient across the membrane still leaks some K+ into the cell. Strictly speaking, this depends on the complement of voltage-gated and voltage-insensitive ion channels expressed on the cell surface.

comment Do non-stick Teflon coated frying pans cause cancer?
Hi there, I've tried to re-word your question to be more objective about the concern that Teflon (or some part of the pan) may contain possible carcinogens. I hope you are happy with this edit.

comment Verifying Protein Folds
That is what happens. These distributed computing platforms send out duplicate jobs for computation and the results compared after all are returned. It is also possible to get a sense of confidence in the fold prediction by comparing sequence homology to what is already known for solved protein structures.
