Ion Channels

Ion channels activity regulates both local and discrete changes in membrane potential and long range electrical signaling. Moreover, in addition to their ion conducting functions, ion channels may also serve as scaffolding proteins for organizing macromolecular complexes that can participate in different signaling pathways. Thus, both the activity of ion channels and their protein-protein interactions could be required for defining the role of ion channels in cellular physiology.
