Inwardly rectifying potassium channels.
- Inwardly rectifying potassium (Kir) channels regulate the resting membrane potential of the cell and thereby modulate the electrical activity of cardiac and neuronal cells, insulin secretion and epithelial K(+) transport. Considerable progress in understanding the molecular structure of Kir channels and the way in which they are regulated by extracellular and intracellular modulators has been made during the past year.
