Novel Electrical Signaling: First Fast Voltage-Gated Sodium Channel Identified Outside of the Animal Kingdom

Stefanie Wege (University of Adelaide), Alexis De Angeli (Université de Montpellier) Electrical signals or action potentials are present in animals, plants, and other organisms such as single-celled diatoms (Moran et al., 2015; Hedrich et al., 2016; Helliwell et al., 2019). Electrical signals are short-lived, locally restricted changes in membrane potential (measured as voltage changes) that travel along cell […]
