Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Ion channels are integral membrane proteins that control transmembrane ion fluxes to regulate membrane potential, cell excitability, and ion transport. Membrane phospholipids containing phosphoinositides have recently emerged as important regulators of many ion channels, including inward rectifier K+ channel, voltage-gated K+ and Ca2+ channels, transient receptor potential channels, and intracellular inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor ion channels. Discussed here are several methods for studying regulation of ion channels by phospholipids.
