A novel potassium channel with delayed rectifier properties isolated from rat brain by expression cloning
VOLTAGE-activated potassium channels play an important part in the control of excitability in nerve and muscle. Different K+ channels are involved in establishing the resting potential, deter-mining… Expand

Single channel recordings demonstrate that ion channels switch stochastically between an open and a closed pore conformation. In search of a structural explanation for this universal open/close… Expand
The NMDA Receptor M3 Segment Is a Conserved Transduction Element Coupling Ligand Binding to Channel Opening
Ion channels alternate stochastically between two functional states, open and closed. This gating behavior is controlled by membrane potential or by the binding of neurotransmitters in voltage- and… Expand
Alteration and restoration of K+ channel function by deletions at the N- and C-termini
Voltage-dependent ion channels are thought to consist of a highly conserved repeated core of six transmembrane segments, flanked by more variable cytoplasmic domains. Significant functional… Expand

Tetraethylammonium (TEA) is a small ion that is thought to block open K+ channels by binding either to an internal or to an external site. For this reason, it has been used to probe the ion… Expand
Atomic distance estimates from disulfides and high-affinity metal-binding sites in a K+ channel pore.
The pore of potassium channels is lined by four identical, highly conserved hairpin loops, symmetrically arranged around a central permeation pathway. Introduction of cysteines into the external… Expand
Activation-dependent subconductance levels in the drk1 K channel suggest a subunit basis for ion permeation and gating.
Ion permeation and channel opening are two fundamental properties of ion channels, the molecular bases of which are poorly understood. Channels can exist in two permeability states, open and closed.… Expand

Abl-interactor (Abi) proteins are targets of Abl-family nonreceptor tyrosine kinases and are required for Rac-dependent cytoskeletal reorganization in response to growth factor stimulation. We asked… Expand
