Ion channels: structure, function and disease

Welcome to our web page. Click on the top menu to learn about us.



Our lab works on the study of the molecular and structural mechanisms implicated in function and regulation of several proteins and their relation to human disease, specifically ion channels ENaC (epithelial sodium channel) Kv7 (M-current) and BK (Ca- and voltage-regulated potassium channel) and their relation with neurological diseases (Teresa Giraldez lab)



We combine a large variety of molecular biology techniques, genetics, microscopy, fluorometry and electrophysiology.
