Voltage-gated sodium channels play important roles in human physiology. However, their complexity hinders the understanding of their physiology and pathology at atomic level. We took advantage of the structural reports of similar channels obtained by cryo-EM (EeNav1.4, and NavPaS), and constructed models of human Nav1.4 channels at closed and open states. The open-state model is very similar to the recently published cryo-EM structure of hNav1.4. The comparison of both models shows shifts of the voltage sensors (VS) of DIII and DIV. The activated position of VS-DII in the closed model was demonstrated by Ts1 docking, thereby confirming the requirement that VS-DI, VS-DII and VS-DIII must be activated for the channel to open. The interactions observed with VS-DIII suggest a stepwise, yet fast, transition from resting to activated state. These models provide structural insights on the closed-open transition of the channel.
