The determinants of charge selectivity of the Cys-loop family of ligand-gated ion channels have been studied for more than a decade. The investigations have mainly covered homomeric receptors e.g. the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor alpha7, the glycine receptor alpha1 and the serotonin receptor 5-HT(3A). Only recently, the determinants of charge… CONTINUE READING
