Mechanisms of Selectivity in Biological Ion Channels

Authors:W. Nonner

Pages:43 - 44
Keywords:ion channels, ionic selectivity, MSA
Abstract:Ca, K and Na channels of biological membrandes are proteins that pass ions through a molecular pore, thereby selecting particular ions of biological importance. We repore here theoretical work suggesting that interactions among charged hard spheres can to a large degree account for the ionic selectivity of such channels.
