Structural studies reveal how potassium channels are inactivated

design of ion channel blockers, such as those used as anesthetics, said Aldrich. A large fraction of drugs that act on channels show state-dependent binding -- that is, they may bind better to the inactivated state than to the non-inactivated state, he said. So if we know the conformational changes between these different states with different binding affinities, we can design better drugs that will bind to particular states and thereby modulate the channels behaviors in certain ways, instead of just blocking them."
