Discovery Programs for Ion Channel Targets

Discovery Program for Ion Channel Targets

Creative Biostructure has established a magic ion channel targeted discovery platform to provide comprehensive products and services to accelerate your research for novel drug discovery and safety pharmacology. Ion channel is pore-forming membrane protein that facilitate ions to pass through the plasma membrane, playing crucial roles in the physiology of all kinds of cells.
