Ion channel modulation
We are pleased to present a collection of articles on ion channel modulation, which have been curated from recent issues of JGP.
Ion channels can be modulated by multiple mechanisms that include lipid action, membrane targeting, phosphorylation status and incorporation of auxiliary proteins. Disease can ensue when these processes go awry, but modulatory mechanisms also offer opportunities to remedy channel dysfunction.
The articles in this collection explore the diverse themes within ion channel modulation from the level of molecular biophysics to cellular and organ physiology. They provide prospects for regulation of physiology and correction of pathophysiology. We hope you enjoy the articles, which are all freely available for a limited period.
