Human Ion Channels Annotated Library

Ion channels are pore-forming membrane proteins that allow ions to pass through the channel pore. Their functions include establishing a resting membrane potential, shaping action potentials and other electrical signals by gating the flow of ions across the cell membrane, controlling the flow of ions across secretory and epithelial cells, and regulating cell volume. Ion channels are present in the membranes of all excitable cells. Ion channels are one of the two classes of ionophoric proteins, the other being ion transporters.

• Ion channels are pore-forming proteins that allow the flow of ions across membranes
• Physiologically the Ion Channels are regulated by
– voltage, e.g. most Na, K, Ca and some Cl channels are “voltage-gated ion channels”
– intracellular and/or extracellular mediators, e.g. some K and Cl channels, TRP channels, GABA(A) and
P2X receptors are “ligand-gated ion channels”
• Ion channels are well recognized as important therapeutic targets for diseases of
– the central nervous system (CNS), e.g. sleep disorders, anxiety, epilepsy, pain
– the peripheral nervous system, e.g. anticonvulsant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory
– the cardiovascular system, e.g. ischemia, hypoxic conditions, stroke
