Abstract
The thallous ion was found to interact very specifically with gramicidin channels in black lipid membranes. Although the ion itself carries current through the channel better than Na+ or K+, it blocks Na+ currents at concentrations which are two orders of magnitude lower than the Na+ concentrations.
