Factors Governing the Na+ vs K+ Selectivity in Sodium Ion Channels

submitted by: dmartinsen
Monovalent Na+ and K+ ion channels, specialized pore-forming proteins that play crucial biological roles such as controlling cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle contraction, are characterized by a remarkable metal selectivity, conducting the native cation while rejecting its monovalent contender and other ions present in the cellular/extracellular milieu. Compared to K+ channels, the principles governing Na+ vs K+ selectivity in both epithelial and voltage-gated Na+ channels are much less...
