Computational studies of membrane channels

Benoit Roux, Klaus Schulten

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The determination of the structure of several members of the K+ channel and aquaporin family represents a unique opportunity to explain the mechanism of these biomolecular systems. With their ability to go beyond static structures, molecular dynamics simulations offer a unique route for relating functional properties to membrane channel structure. The recent progress in this area is reviewed.
