Permeation Models and Structure-function Relationships in Ion Channels

Kuyucak, Serdar; Chung, Shin-Ho


Recent determination of the molecular structures of potassium and mechanosensitive channels from x-ray crystallography has led to a renewed interest in ion channels. The challenge for permeation models is to understand the functional properties of channels from the available structural information. Here we give a critical review of the three main contenders, namely, continuum theories, Brownian dynamics and molecular dynamics. Continuum theories are shown to be invalid in a narrow channel...[Show more]
