Anion transport across cell membranes.
There is long-standing hope that synthetic anion carriers could replace the activity of defective anion channels, leading to treatments for diseases such as cystic fibrosis. As reported in Nature Chemistry, workers in the Schools of Chemistry and Physiology/Pharmacology have shown for the first time that high transport activities can be achieved in cells without toxic effects. Medical applications of anion transport are now an important step closer.
