Mechanisms of selectivity in biological ion channels

Wolfgang Nonner

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Ca, K, and Na channels of biological membranes are proteins that pass ions through a molecular pore, thereby selecting particular ions of biological importance. We report here theoretical work suggesting that interactions among charged hard spheres can to a large degree account for the ionic selectivity of such channels.
