Abstract
ClC anion channels are found in all major groups of organisms. Recent studies in nematodes and mice suggest that the function and regulation of ClC-2 have been conserved over vast evolutionary time spans. These studies illustrate the experimental advantages of using genomically defined nonmammalian model organisms for characterizing ClC channel functional genomics.
