Emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach multidisciplinary approach A term referring to the philosophy of converging multiple specialties and/or technologies to establish a diagnosis or effect a therapy , researchers in biological and medical fields from around the world summarize recent findings about the structure and function of several types of ion channels from research on bacteria, and the application of those findings to cells of more complex organisms. They include a variety of potassium channels, CLC (The Computer Language Company Inc.) The publisher of this Encyclopedia. See About this product. chloride channels, sodium ion channels, aquaporins facilitating the membrane transport of water, and bacteria mechano-sensitive channels serving as passages for various osmolytes including ions. Among specific topics are deciphering Streptomyces Streptomyces (strĕp'təmī`sēz), bacterial genus of the order Actinomycetales, members of which resemble fungi in their branching filamentous structure. Various species produce such antibiotics as streptomycin and various tetracyclines. lividans KcsA as a K channel, glutamate-activated channels, voltage-gated and inward rectifier K+ channels, and the role of bacterial channels in cell physiology.
