The stability and ion binding properties of the homo-tetrameric pore domain of a prokaryotic, voltage-gated sodium channel are studied by extensive all-atom molecular dynamics simulations, with the channel protein being embedded in a fully hydrated lipid bilayer. It is found that Na(+) ion presents in a mostly hydrated state inside the wide pore of the(More)
The signaling molecules in neurons, called neurotransmitters, play an essential role in the transportation of neural signals, during which the neurotransmitters interact with not only specific receptors, but also cytomembranes, such as synaptic vesicle membranes and postsynaptic membranes. Through extensive molecular dynamics simulations, the atomic-scale(More)
