We have cloned a mammalian (rat) homologue of Drosophila ether á go-go (eag) cDNA, which encodes a distinct type of voltage activated potassium (K) channel. The derived Drosophila and rat eag polypeptides share > 670 amino acids, with a sequence identity of 61%, exhibiting a high degree of similarity at the N-terminus, the hydrophobic core including the(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the properties of cloned Kir2 channels with the properties of native rectifier channels in guinea-pig (gp) cardiac muscle. The cDNAs of gpKir2.1, gpKir2.2, gpKir2.3 and gpKir2.4 were obtained by screening a cDNA library from guinea-pig cardiac ventricle. A partial genomic structure of all gpKir2 genes was deduced by(More)
The Drosophila ether-à-go-go (eag) mutant is responsible for altered potassium currents in excitable tissue. These mutants exhibit spontaneous, repetitive firing of action potentials in the motor axons of larval neuromuscular junctions. The eag gene encodes a polypeptide that shares sequence similarities with several different ionic channel proteins,(More)
The cell cycle is the crucial process that leads to mitosis in all cell types. The dramatic redirectioning of many cellular processes during the cycle is known to involve ion channels, either changing their level of expression or their voltage dependence, as in the case of inward rectifiers. Here we describe the specific inhibition of heterologously(More)
