Channelopathies: molecular and genetic mechanisms

Ion channels are ubiquitously expressed in human tissues and represent one of the largest and best understood functional groups of proteins, with over 400 different types identified so far. Our understanding of their function is critical for the development of therapeutic approaches aimed at treating and preventing channelopathies, human diseases related to the dysfunction of ion channels. This Collection provides a home for research providing new directions for unravelling the molecular and genetic mechanisms of these pathologies.

Submissions are welcome on a rolling basis. Find out how to submit on this page.
