Self-Consistent Particle Simulation of Ion Channels
Ionic Channels allow the transport of biologically necessary ions across the barrier formed by the membrane of a cell. Simulating the behaviour of ions as they traverse the Protein molecules which form the channel, presents a number of novel difficulties from both the computational and physical perspectives. We present a simulation methodology based upon the self-consistent solution of the Poisson and Langevin equations which allows the simulation of ion behaviour in extremely small pores, over timescales of picoseconds to microseconds.
