About this Research Topic
Dysfunction or deregulation of ion transport may have dramatic consequences for cellular and tissue functions, and eventually for human health. Thus, a precise understanding of the mecha-nisms of physiological regulation and pathological dysregulation of ion transport is essential to open new avenues in therapy, and drug design. This Special Issue will focus on the molecular mechanisms of ion transport regulation and will specifically deal with pathophysiological dysregulation, and its consequences for cell and tissue function.
This Research Topic welcomes manuscripts collecting data from both cell and animal models (original papers, as well as comprehensive reviews) providing or summarizing new knowledge on various aspects of ion transporters and channels, including intracellular signaling. Although studies on the physiological and pathophysiological role of ion transport are encouraged, pharmacological, biochemical, and biophysical studies will be also considered.
Keywords: ion channels, ion transporters, dysfunction, ion transport regulation
