voltage-gated ion channel activity
- molecular function
- exact: voltage gated ion channel activity
- exact: voltage-dependent ion channel activity
- Catalysis of the transmembrane transfer of an ion by a voltage-gated channel. An ion is an atom or group of atoms carrying an electric charge by virtue of having gained or lost one or more electrons. A voltage-gated channel is a channel whose open state is dependent on the voltage across the membrane in which it is embedded. [source:
