Mechanisms of Valence Selectivity in Biological Ion Channels
Transmembrane ion channels play a crucial role in the existence of all living organisms. They partition the exterior from the interior of the cell, maintain the proper ionic gradient across the cell membrane and facilitate signaling between cells. To perform these functions, ion channels must be highly selective, allowing some types of ions to pass while blocking the passage of others. Here we review a number of studies that have helped to elucidate the mechanisms by which ion channels...[Show more]
