Comments “Although the diameter of chloride ions (~3.7 Å Dean (primary source)), is larger than the narrowest part of this hypothetical Structure [of TRK-family protein], a likely more important physical problem is that liquid water becomes unstable in hydrophobic pores below ~6 Å diameter, according to molecular dynamic simulations (41,42).”
