If you want to know the basics of Babenko's favorite biosystems representing pharmacologically most significant ion-selective conductors, called "KATP", "chemodiodes", "transchaenzimes" and "metabolic sensors", but have no time to read more than one article, try this laconic review with the citation score exceeding the magic number, 575,
