Photoactivation of an Acid-Sensitive Ion Channel Associated with Vision and Pain.


We describe the reversible photoactivation of the acid sensitive ligand-gated ion channel ASIC2a, a mammalian channel found throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems that is associated with vision and pain. We also show the activation of GLIC, an acid-sensitive prokaryotic homologue of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. Photoactivation was… (More)
