Synthetic nanotubes to mimic biological ion channels

Biological ion channels, made from proteins, form water-filled conduits across cell membranes such that charged particles can move in and out of the cell. Engineered channels, such as nanotubes, are far less complex than biological systems; yet, they have the ability to perform some of the functions biological ion channels carry out.
