Structural themes in ion channels.
|Abstract||The recent crystal structure of the prokaryotic inwardly rectifying potassium channel, KirBac1.1, revealed for the first time the structure of a K+ channel in the closed state plus the location of the activation gate. Comparison of the KirBac1.1 structure with other known ion channels reveals a number of common structural features. These common characteristics include the formation of the ion conduction pathway at the interface between adjacent s ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|
