An ab initio molecular orbital study on effect of electric field strength on ionic selectivity of the sodium channel.

The effect of electric field strength of the selectivity filter on ionic selectivity of the sodium channel has been studied by ab initio molecular orbital calculations. On the basis of the previous method, two kinds of model systems, the FCO2M system and the FCO2M-H2O system, were studied. In this study, a FCO2- molecule, which is substituted for a HCO2… CONTINUE READING
