ion channels protein production


Ion channels are important transmembrane (TM) pore-forming proteins activated by a variety of stimuli including ligand binding, voltage change and stretch. When channels are activated, selected ion flows across the membrane result in voltage changes that are crucial for many physiological processes (e.g., nerve conduction, epithelial secretion, muscle contraction and sensory reception).
