Molecular recognition between peptide blockers and ionic channels is viewed as an interaction in which short-range charge transfer plays a significant role in addition to the most common electrostatic interactions, hydrogen bond formation, and hydrophobicity. Such analysis gives rise to a correlation between global chemicals softness and the dissociation constants for the recognition process. It is worth mentioning that the displayed results establish a link between electronic structure properties and site directed mutagenesis data.
