AbstractIon channels modulate and control many fundamental physiological processes in various tissues and alterations in their functions give rise to a wide range of pathophysiologies, which makes them important drug targets. Indeed, for decades, drugs modulating ion channel activity have been targeted by the pharmaceutical industry. Historically, however, developing drugs targeting this protein class has been difficult, the most challenging aspect being the identification of an appropriate drug lead with desirable selectivity. This has been a particular issue for small molecules targeting ion channels.
