A Novel Rate Theory Approach To Transport In Ion Channels

Abstract:

We present a novel rate theory based on the notions of splitting probability and mean first passage time to describe conduction of single ions in narrow, effectively 1D membrane channels. In contrast to traditional approaches such as transition state theory or Kramers theory, transitions between different conduction states in our model are governed ?y rates which depend on the full geometry of the potential of mean force (PMF) resulting from the superposition of an equilibrium free energy pro...
