The voltage-sensitive ion channels are a class of trans-membrane proteins that lie at the heart of cellular excitability, the ability to transmit information via electrical signals. In response to changes in membrane potential, these molecules mediate rapid ion flux through a highly selective pore in the membrane. If the channel density is high enough a… (More)
