Comments "The inability of negatively charged ATP to penetrate through closed porin channels, even though the size of ATP molecule (Rse ~ 0.7nm) is less than the size of a closed pore (1.8 nm), clearly shows that the electrostatic profile inside the channel is more important for the transport of charged metabolites through the channel than the ratio of the pore/molecule sizes [27, PMID 11485562]." This is the Stokes-Einstein radius
