Profile

Research Description

Nucleotides are naturally occurring compounds found in all living cells, where they have well defined biochemical and physiological roles. The most abundant nucleotide is adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP), which occurs in millimolar concentrations in the cytosol and molar concentrations in intracellular storage vesicles. 

Inside the cell, ATP represents the major energy currency for biochemical metabolism. Outside the cell, ATP represents a highly regulated way for cells to talk to each other. ATP and its derivatives can activate a large number of membrane-bound signalling proteins, collectively called the Purinoceptor family. All cells possess Purinoceptors and typically more than one subtype. As a result, these signalling proteins affect practically every aspect of human physiology.

Dr King works on the signalling properties of the mammalian purinoceptor family, mainly by expressing them in isolation in host cells (Xenopus oocytes or 1321N1 human astrocytoma cells). Sometimes, two or more subunits are expressed together to make heteromeric assemblies of signalling molecules. Occasionally, Purinoceptors are co-expressed with other types of signalling proteins to investigate receptor-receptor crosstalk. Already, he and his colleagues have studied how Purinoceptors affect TRPV1, ENaC and AQP2 channels.

The results of these cloning experiments are compared with results from parallel studies of tissues and organs containing key members of the Purinoceptor family. Dr King works closely with other scientists throughout UCL (and externally), to model signalling systems that employ Purinoceptors and investigate unresolved issues in human physiology.

Some of his past studies have focussed the role of extracellular nucleotides in i) bone modelling and osteoporosis, ii) control of breathing, iii) tubule function in kidney, iv) blood platelet function in control of bleeding, v) astrocyte growth following brain injury, vi) signalling in sensory nerve pathways, including the ear, vi) control of the urinary bladder and vii) control of gastrointestinal motility.
 
Recently, Dr King's attention has returned to the gut-brain axis and the control of appetite and satiety by purinergic transmission in motor & sensory nerve pathways connecting the brain to the GI tract.

Education Description

Dr King has been engaged in tertiary education in physiology and pharmacology to science and medical students over the last 35 years - at Glasgow University (1976-1980), Mayo Graduate School (1983-1985), London Hospital Medical School (1986-1988) and UCL (1992-present). There is a research-led emphasis to his teaching and how physiological systems work together, complemented with a strong emphasis on writing and presenting scientific information (extended dissertations, lab reports as scientific papers, oral communications).

He is the module organiser for PHOL2001 (Physiology: Maintenance and Regulatory Mechanisms) and BIOS2001 (Writing & Presenting Bioscience), taken by second and third year science students.  He is the deputy module organiser for PHOL2003 (Systems Neuroscience). These three modules can be taken together and represent a substantial course on Integrative Physiology for students considering a postgraduate career in physiology or medicine.

Dr King teaches extensively on regulatory and permissive roles of the Autonomic Nervous System in PHOL2001, and on mechanoreception in PHOL2003.  He also teaches integrative physiology on PHOL1001, PHOL3902/4, MAPS3001, and synaptic pharmacology on PHAR3011.  He participates in Phase 1 teaching in the medical school.
