Ion channels: a first view of K⁺ channels in atomic glory

Abstract:

Crystal structures have been solved for the transbilayer pore domain of a bacterial K+ channel and the tetramerisation domain of a voltage-gated K+ channel. These provide our first real structural insights into possible mechanisms of ion selectivity and permeation for K+ channels.
