Open probabilities as a function of voltage at different temperatures. In a two-state model with ΔH = −86 kcal/mol, ΔS = −297cal/mol°K with (A) z = 2.5 and (B) z = 0.6 and (C) z = 0. For the eight-state allosteric model proposed by Brauchi et al. [40] with similar values and an apparent gating charge of (D) zJ = 2.5 and (E) zJ = 0.6.V0.5 vs. temperature plots are shown for each case, with the exception of z = 0, in which the slope diverges.
