An open ( active) ion channel is a water-filled protein pore that allows certain ions to pass through. The ion ... Channels thus rather resemble a damaged toilet tank that delivers water in bursts as long as the lever is depressed. ... proteins have up to a dozen transmembrane helixes, some of which are amphipatic and the rest hydrophobic.
