Abstract

Ionic channels, an important class of biological molecules, are the main pathways by which substances move into cells. The channel is represented as a distribution of fixed charge, and the ion as a mobile charge with a diffusion coefficient. The shape of the electric field is found to be a sensitive function of ionic conditions and the potential difference across the channel.
