Description:

The voltage-gated proton channel bears surprising resemblance to the voltage-sensing domain (S1–S4) of other voltage-gated ion channels but is a dimer with two conduction pathways. The proton channel seems designed for efficient proton extrusion from cells. In phagocytes, it facilitates the production of reactive oxygen species by NADPH oxidase.
