Seminar Mechanistic understanding and reverse engineering of ion channels: from fundamental science to nanotechnology
Armagan Kocer


Ion channels are pore-forming transmembrane proteins present in all kingdoms of life. They sense chemical, biological, or mechanical stimuli and convert them into electrical signals by regulating the movement of ions across the otherwise impermeable biological membranes. In excitable cells, such as neurons and muscles, ion channels are responsible for efficient and fast electrical communication. Defects in ion channel functioning have significant physiological and behavioral effects. With the current advances in science and technology, we are now at a stage to understand ion channels’ the working mechanisms and engineer new functions on ion channels to perform biological or non-biological tasks.
