Abstract Share this page

Abstract Ion channels are pharmacologic receptors and as such exhibit stereoselective interactions with drugs. Ion channels are conformationally mobile transmembrane proteins existing in a number of open and closed states. Drug interactions with these different states may differ quantitatively and qualitatively. Stereoselectivity may not be a constant factor and may change according to channel state as determined by stimulus mode or experimental conditions. Selected examples are cited for Na+ and Ca2+ channels. This article was published in Chirality and referenced in Biochemistry & Analytical Biochemistry
