Ion Channel Cell Line Development

Ion channels are a large family of integral, pore-forming membrane proteins, typically formed by multi-subunits, and exist in the membranes of all cells. Upon stimulating by chemical or mechanical signals, ion channels open or close to allow ions to move into or out of the cell. An ion passing through the channel pore generates electrical signals which can be monitored using electrophysiological methods.
