Non-extensive statistical mechanics of voltage-gated ion-channel proteins in biological membranes*

Abstract

Voltage-gated ion-channel proteins are key molecules for the generation and propagation of electrical signals in excitable cell membranes [1]. The voltage-dependent switching of these channels between conducting and nonconducting states is a major factor in controlling the transmembrane voltage. A non-extensive or generalized statistical mechanical approach… (More)
