Molecular biology of voltage-dependent potassium and sodium channels

Molecular biology of voltage-dependent potassium and sodium channels

(p.244) 12 Molecular biology of voltage-dependent potassium and sodium channels
The Axon


Oxford University Press

Excitation and conduction in axons depends on the time- and voltage-sensitive modulation of ionic conductances in the axon surface membrane. This chapter discusses the molecular biology of sodium and potassium ion channels, and the relationships between structure and function that characterize this family of related voltage-dependent ion channels.

Keywords:   sodium ion channels, potassium ion channels, voltage-dependent ion channels, conductances
