The ion channel targeted by the lidocaine-like end of QAQ responds to heat by allowing positively charged sodium ions to pass into the cells that express it.
In their experiments, the researchers exploited the fact that QAQ can percolate through endogenous ion channels to get the molecule into nerve cells.
Furthermore, the lidocaine-like end of QAQ binds to this site only if the molecule is in an extended conformation.
