ABSRACT Ionic channels are proteins with holes down their middle that control access to biological cells and thus govern an enormous range of biological functions important in health and disease. A substantial fraction of the drugs used in clinical medicine act directly or indirectly on channels. Channels have a simple well defined structure, and the fundamental mechanism of ionic motion is known to be electrodiffusion. The current through individual channel molecules can easily be measured… CONTINUE READING
