A biomimetic chiral-driven ionic gate constructed by pillar[6]arene-based host–guest systems, Published online: 05 July 2018; doi:10.1038/s41467-018-05103-w

Uptake and release of glucose is regulated by glucose-sensitive ion channels, but complexity of the system impedes investigation of the gating behavior under physiological conditions. Here the authors use a pillararene based artificial ion channel to mimic and investigate chirality driven switching of a glucose ion channel.
