Sodium channels are ion channels that transport sodium ions across cellular membranes. Sodium channels are generally either ligand-gated or voltage-gated. In voltage-gated sodium channels, as in other voltage-gated channels, positively charged residues in an extracellular domain (S4) are important for channel gating. Sodium channels are important for generating electrical signals in neurons.
