Paper Abstract

A novel conceptual model is introduced in which ion permeation is coupled to the protein wall vibration and the later in turn modulates exponentially strongly the permeation via radial oscillations of the potential of mean force. In the framework of this model of ion-wall-water interaction we discuss problems of selectivity between alike ions and coupling of ion permeation to gating.
