Electrical Signaling at Atomic Resolution

Electrical signals initiated by voltage-gated sodium and calcium channels initiate rapid physiological events from bacteria to man. Through structural studies of a bacterial ancestor of eukaryotic sodium and calcium channels, we have elucidated the structural basis for voltage-dependent activation and inactivation of these ion channels, their mechanism of ion conductance and selectivity, and the sites and mechanisms of action of channel-blocking drugs that are widely used in therapy of human diseases.
