    FWIW: Information on the HCN2 protein being discussed:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HCN2

    Looks interesting. Ion channel signalling is mentioned. Not that I know anything at all about that but have seen mentioned here.

    Ion channel signalling seems to be one of the few new medical frontiers. I think it's great more and more researchers are looking. I think it's appalling so little is known. To be fair, you need money to do research, and to get money earmarked you need a critical mass of interest.

    California, until burned to a crisp.
    Whether the compound(s) that will be developed will be effective (note how much the FDA-approved fibro drugs were over-hyped by the medical community for years before the real-life, rather poor efficacy was teased out) will remain to be seen.

    I'm not a fan of the one-shot, "take this magic pill" approach.

    Yet, the basic research is a good idea.
