ATP modulation of ATP-sensitive potassium channel ATP sensitivity varies with the type of SUR subunit.
ATP-sensitive potassium (K(ATP)) channels comprise Kir and SUR subunits. Using recombinant K(ATP) channels expressed in Xenopus oocytes, we observed that MgATP (100 microm) block of Kir6.2/SUR2A currents gradually declined with time, whereas inhibition of Kir6.2/SUR1 or Kir6.2DeltaC36 currents did not change. The decline in Kir6.2/SUR2A ATP sensitivity was not observed in Mg(2+) free solution and was blocked by the phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase inhibitors LY 294002 (10 microm) and wortma...Expand abstract
