Palytoxin, the most potent animal toxin, is proposed to convert Na+/K(+)-ATPase into a cation-selective ion channel. Because of the ubiquity of pumps and channels in the living tissues used to study its mechanism of action, it is difficult to rule out that another site may be involved. In order to show that palytoxin selectively acts on Na+/K(+)-ATPase, two… CONTINUE READING
