Opening new doors: First synthetic mechanosensitive potassium channel

Intrigued by the properties of ion channel proteins commonly observed in cells, researchers have developed the first synthetic mechanosensitive potassium channel using a newly developed aromatic fluorinated amphiphilic cyclophane. Displaying both stimuli responsiveness and selective ion transport abilities, their new ion channel could open new doors for the future therapeutic and industrial usage of synthetic mechanosensitive channels.
