Structure and function of two-pore-domain K+ channels: contributions from genetic model organisms.

Abstract:

K+ channels that possess two pore domains in each channel subunit are common in many animal tissues. Such channels are generated from large families of subunits and are implicated in several functions, including temperature sensation, responses to ischaemia, K+ homeostasis and setting the resting potential of the cell. Their activity can be modulated by polyunsaturated fatty acids, pH and oxygen, and some are candidate targets of volatile anaesthetics. However, despite their potential as targ...
