Ion flow in the bath and flux interactions between channels.


We present an exact solution to the linearized Nernst-Planck-Poisson equation for spherically symmetric current flow. This solution differs from Levitt's solution (Levitt, D. G. 1992. Biophys. J., Eq. A5) by its dependence on an additional parameter, which is equal to the net ion flux for monovalent ion-selective channels. For ion-selective channels, this… (More)
